Our guide to dining out in Phuket
If you love food, you will love Phuket. There are restaurants to suit every taste, serving a huge selection of western and Asian food. The variety of cuisine and dining experiences is one of the major attractions of the island. You can eat breakfast at your hotel, lunch at a local noodle stall, and have dinner with fine wines in a sophisticated air-conditioned restaurant.
Don’t miss Oh Tao, a combination of oysters and crispy pork, Hokkien Mee, round yellow noodles accompanied with either seafood or pork and A-pong, the famous sweet rolled pancake.
A must if you have a sweet tooth is “Oh Aew”, a jelly dessert made with Jellied banana flour, boiled red beans, and sweet red syrup dipped in ice that make the absolute temptation.
Those who want fine seafood should visit “The Boathouse Wine & Grill” or “the Mom Tri’s Kitchen at Villa Royalof” some of the best restaurants overlooking Kata Noi Beach.
Natural Restaurant in Phuket Town has a completely unique atmosphere, reminiscent of a tree house filled with a wide variety of stunning orchids. The food is fresh, succulent and well presented, the service is excellent and the prices are very reasonable.
For that really special experience, The Royale Nam Tok Phuket is an outstanding fine dining restaurant with extraordinary attention to detail. With only 5 tables and a big international reputation, you have to book well in advance.
