Recommended restaurants in and around Laguna Phuket

Hi any recommendations for restaurants (all budgets) in, around and within walking distance of the Dusit Laguna?

The nature of laguna area is that it has top end priced resorts, most of the restaurants are in the hotels / resorts, some at Canal Village. I lived many years on Phuket but I only ever went to that Laguna area perhaps twice.
I hope someone can come up with some suggestions as there must be a few in the area, otherwise it means heading at least to Surin if not kamala/Patong and the other beaches further south.

There used to be some shacks on the beach between Banyan Tree and Laguna Phuket, that served wonderful fresh seafood and ice cold beer. Cheap as chips. We had several excellent meals there about 10 years ago. Are these gone now?

There used to be a little place in a row of shop-houses just outside of the Laguna complex. The name was Katonka or something like that. Fabulous food. This was around 1999 so I don't know if it's still there.

I'll update this one with our own recent experiences.

Several excellent beach restaurants - very very cheap

Our favourites -
A'Loma by the Phuket Laguna resort
Lotus by the Sheraton

Massive savings on the hotels and food of excellent quality!

I live in the area and there are many fine restaurants at all budget levels to enjoy.

The Lotus is my favorite - right on Bang Tao Beach - just outside the Banyan Tree Resort. A review is at:

In the town of Cherng Talay just outside the resorts complex is the Black Cat - a long time favorite - they will deliver to your hotel:

Other Beach shack restaurant favorites in the area are the Tom Yam Goong - just outside the Laguna Beach Resort (try the shimp with pepper and ginger) - and the Bang Tao Seafood Restaurant - just outside the Amora Resort, farther south along the beach.

Just for fun go around the headland on the south to Surin Beach and check out the 25+ beach shack restaurants right on the beach there.

Another favorite in the area is the Farang Restaurant at:

As mentioned earlier there are some pricey restaurants just outside the Resorts entrance. The Supper Club is quite good. Can't vouch for most of the others.
