Lotus Restaurant on Bang Tao BeachFavorite Restaurants on Phuket

Photos and Reviews of Phuket's Best Restaurants, Cafes and Beach Shacks

Phuket has a great variety of restaurants, international and Thai, and very reasonable prices.   You'll find Phuket hard to beat - the only place even comparable might be Bali.

Unless otherwise stated, you can assume every restaurant mentioned has a basically international menu - as well as a good selection of Thai favorites.  Everywhere here does take away if you ask.


Two new favorites added to this page recently: The Farang with a couple locations (great international foods at super bargain prices) and the BBQ Hut in Patong - simply the best BBQ and Mexican food on the island.


Black Cat in Cherng TalayBlack Cat is a favorite - partly because they have great food, a widely varied menu, and the best wiener schnitzel around - and also because they deliver in the area near Laguna Resorts (Cherng Talay, Bang Tao, Surin, and maybe even further. 

Essential to delivery - the people who answer the telephone have good basic English skills - or they go get someone who does. 

Lotus Restaurant on Bang Tao BeachIf you enjoy sitting right on the beach, good quality food, and a great sunset along with dinner - then Lotus is your place.  A photo on the Fantastic Sunsets page comes from here.  The restaurant sits right on Bang Tao Beach - close to the Laguna Resorts complex.

Yacht HavenTake your binoculars to this place!  Yacht Haven sits on their own marina and you'll get to look over an assortment of multimillion dollar super yachts, expensive to modest sailboats, a few converted junks, some houseboats and more. 

As it faces the mainland on the eastside of the island - you'll also get a view of the bay - and won't get sun-blasted as the sun goes down.  The best cheeseburger on the island is there.  Many people love the fish and chips.

Roma Italian RestaurantWho doesn't need a fix of Italian food from time to time?  When you need that load of lasagna or pasta - go to Roma.  In the heart of Patong - along the beach road,

it's a good place to go when you want to do the beach walk or a little shopping.  Or, if you just love people watching.  Great food - reasonable prices.


Zen Japanese RestaurantWho doesn't like raw fish?  Okay, generally most people don't - but somehow many are great sushi fans.  Contradiction?  No, not when you try a place like Zen. 

They have not only the best priced sushi you'll you'll find anywhere in the world - but also the freshest, best prepared and of excellent quality.


Surin Bay InnA favorite of the local crowd - and in an area with a growing expatriate population, Surin Bay Inn brings you one of the best breakfasts on the island - whether you prefer American or British style. 

They even have a free book exchange - which, with the price of books on Phuket - will save you more than the cost of your meal.  That's a bargain!


Twin Brothers on Surin BeachBeach Shack and the best pizza on the island? You'll be enjoying the sand between your toes as you look over lovely Surin Beach at Twin Brothers. The pizza is light, perfectly cooked, and just outrageously good?


Don's CafeDo you love the feel of barbecued ribs dripping over your fingers as you eat them?  Ribs are the claim to fame for this local favorite - but everything on the menu is excellent. 

Don's also has the best pecan pie on the island.  Where else in the world can you get delicious ribs for about US$9?  Only on the southern end of Phuket.


Beach Shack Restaurants on Bang Tao BeachWant to sit on the beach when you eat?  That is often the number one selection criteria.  Phuket has a widely varied and ever changing section of beach restaurants


Fried Bananas!Pastries, pie, desserts?  Do you love sweets?  The Special Treats page will tell you where to get everything from a light snack to a dessert pig out.  It is impossible to diet on Phuket!
