Phuket Restaurant Guide

A guide to the best eateries on the Island

Sunset at the Lotus Restaurant

As part of this Phuket Restaurant Guide, I would like to invite you to some of the best eateries on this wonderful tropical island. If you've just arrived here for the very first time and you have no idea where to start or where to go, then let me show you around some of the best places. As part of this guide, I'd like to take you to some amazing Thai restaurants as well as restaurants serving some of your typical home from home foods.

However, I would not want you to feel homesick while you enjoy that well deserved vacation you've been dreaming of for so long and all the yummy Thai dishes that await you in Phuket.

Bang Tao Beach

Phuket Restaurant Guide -Bang Tao Beach

The Lotus Restaurant for a gastronomic feast and a fantastic vibe, is by far one of the top ten restaurants in Phuket. Apart from the excellent cuisine while dining here, there is this huge bonus of gazing across the breathtaking ocean over the Andaman Sea from Bang Tao Beach. And that's not all, as no matter what your tastes may be, you will certainly find many mouth watering appetizers and main courses to keep you coming back for more.

A truly intimate experience

Why not try some delicious Lobster Tomido or the Fried Mantis Shrimps with Garlic. No, wait a minute, try the Tiger Prawns with Panang Curry or the Fried Prawns with Cashew Nuts. On second thoughts, try the Steamed Grouper Fish with Lime Sauce or the Pepper Crab with Herbs. What I'm trying to say is that you will not be disappointed at this venue.

The Lotus Restaurant is located on Bang Tao Beach and only twenty minutes from Phuket airport and two minutes from Banyantree Phuket Resort. The owner will even arrange to collect you from your hotel anywhere in the Laguana area.

It has just come to my attention and with regret the Lotus restaurant has been demolished. It's with great sadness that this eaterie has had to close its doors. I am sure many of you will agree with me that the food, ambiance and pleasant memories shared here will now be lost forever. 

Views from Baan Rim Pa Restaurant

Phuket Restaurant Guide - Patong Beach

The Baan Rim Pa Piano Bar and Restaurant provides you with a spectacular setting among shaded trees from their cliff top open air double story eatery overlooking the calm waters of Kalim and Patong bays. This award winning Phuket restaurant specializes in authentic Royal Thai Cuisine which attracts tourists from all around the world. The piano bar provides the perfect setting for blue's and jazz lovers and you can select some fine wines from the restaurant's award winning cellar. This is without a doubt an outstanding Phuket restaurant.

Ristorante & Pizzeria Napoli is a superb venue for all pizza and pasta lovers. Listen to relaxing music in this fully air-conditioned Phuket restaurant as you are served the best traditional pizzas and pastas in a true classical style.

Baan Yin Dee Restaurant forms part of a 21 room luxury boutique resort set in superlative surroundings. Relax in an atmosphere with a breathtaking view to die for while dining on mouth watering tenderloin steaks, juicy peppered tiger prawns and huge grilled lobsters. As a good tip, try reserving a table early and ask for a poolside or balcony table as they have the best views overlooking Patong, especially at night. But don't let the view spoil your appetite over the excellent cuisine here. Before I forget and a huge bonus... is listening to Charlie, the Filipino on the grand piano as he pours out one jazz number after another.

Thai Vegetable Curry

Phuket Restaurant Guide - Kata Beach

Mom Tri's Boathouse Wine and Grill is an internationally renowned restaurant situated directly on Kata beach, making it the perfect setting for all you romantics as you gaze across the tranquil ocean. This eatery is part of a luxurious boutique resort and specializes in fine Thai and French gourmet dining. An added bonus is their extensive range of over 700 labels in their wine cellar. If you decide to stay over at the resort, you won't have to travel far for a meal.

Mom Tri's Gung Cafe is adjacent to its bigger sister, Mom Tri's Boathouse which are both owned and run by the architect Mom Luang Tri Devakul. This Phuket restaurant serves a kind of Thai and Japanese fusion menu in a less formal atmosphere but with the same superb service. You can also order some unusual cocktails including one called the Gung Viagra. (Say no more)

The word Gung in Thai by the way means Rock Lobster so you can just imagine what the cocktail must taste like. A mixture of lobster verses viagra... Well, not exactly, but be a devil and try one and then let me know what you think. Not to worry though, you can still get the same award winning wines as next door.

Joe's South Restaurant is a Phuket restaurant owned and run by the same team as the Baan Rim Pa and Joe's Downstairs on Kalim beach in Patong. This brand new setting is nestled on the headland that separates Kata and Kata Noi. You can expect the same class of fine dining in a chic and relaxed atmosphere. Yes! of course you can order your favorite wine and cocktails here too.

Phuket Restaurant Guide - Karon Beach

On the Rock Restaurant is located at the Marina Phuket Resort, which forms part of a private tropical garden and coconut plantation between the beaches of Karon and Kata. From the restaurant's open air terrace, you would have the ultimate view of the setting sun as it disappears over the sea at Karon beach.

This very popular eatery specializes in seafood and Thai cuisine. In addition, during the evening, you will be able to watch traditional Thai musicians and dancers perform. And as the very name suggests, should you be enjoying a leisurely breakfast or lunch, then watching the divers snorkeling in the coral reef below can be quite entertaining.

The Secret Cliff Resort & Restaurant is perched high up on the forested cliff overlooking the spectacular Karon Beach and the Phuket coastline. Atmospheric and tranquil setting make this the perfect romantic hideaway and the cuisine is absolutely first class. This restaurant specializes in both Thai and European with some fine curries as well as delicious mouth-watering fresh fish.
