Phuket Town Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Phuket Town

July 15, 2017 Agatha Simes

Colorful Phuket is a mélange of lifestyles, a place where tranquil monks navigate the same streets as pumped up nightclubbers. The ornate temples and lively cafes of Old Town are prime spots for exploration. Check out the Shrine of the Serene Light and the aromatic Nguan Choon Tong herb shop. Browse and bargain for pretty trinkets at the nearby Thai Amulet Market. Don’t miss an opportunity to take in a performance at the epic Siam Niramit Phuket theater, a true cultural extravaganza.

Our goal is to provide the extra ordinary dinning experiences to our customers we are serving contemporary Thai cuisine, dishes are created uniquely and elegant way by Chef Noi who is a celebrity chef very well known on Phuket island who was featuring on a Thailand Iron chef show as a resident chef, using his back ground of European cooking technique and skills to create wonderful balancing flavor while keeping authentic Thai taste and flavor of fresh Thai herbs and quality main ingredients!

The place was nice, staff very nice and friendly. Food was made super fast and the drinks were much better than some other places. The menu was big, lots of food to choose from.
But honestly after Reading such a positive reviews, we were disappointed with the food. We liked crispy fried chicken spring rolls, some salad with beef (can't remember the name) and Shanghai noodle pesto avocado and squid. The rest was quite disappointing.

Beach Bar

More info about the Beach Bar here: http://jamie-monk.blogspot.com/2007/01/restaurant-tips-beach-bar-cape-panwa.htmlThere are very few restaurants in the area, and somehow locals and vacationers find this place, but the owners are so nice, and the food is so good, it's worth a mention

Reviewed By Willie G - Coleraine

The setting with the sea close by, family run and very good quality and affordable food, nothing a problem to the chef if you wished your meal altered to suit
The prawns are to die for and , the drinks are first class , I will return in January all being well

Pizzeria AGLI AMICI da Michele & Jimmy

Italian Pizzeria!!

Reviewed By Ted Lee F - Chalong, Thailand

I had house guests visiting from Naples Italy. I had heard of this restaurant for years and decided to take them there for dinner. They loved it. We had two different pizza and two different pasta. Everything passed their critical review with flying colors. While located on a side street there was easy parking. We had to wait a few minutes for a table but it was well worth the wait. The staff is very friendly efficient and knowledgeable. All in all a great hit.

I 46 Old Town

Reviewed By littlewillie - Pickering England

46 is an amazing experience and we have never come across anything quite like it-it is simply our favourite cafe in the world. It is all about service, care, atmosphere and surroundings. Beautiful building , outstanding and very gentle service, good food/drinks-you leave feeling you have spent your time there being massaged and hugged-completely relaxing. Having dropped on it a few years ago it was the first place we sought out on our return.

A great place to come and try freshly prepared, Northern style noodles. Located in the heart of Old Town Phuket where you will find the best Kao Soy noodles around!!

One Chun Cafe and Restaurant

Reviewed By Amelia0487

We had the no1 and no2 recommended and fried rice. The best food we’ve tried during our trip by far. It’s a little cafe restaurant but very cosy, quiet and good air-con. It’s the cheapest restaurant we’ve been to. Only one downside is the staff. It’s hard for them to crack a smile. Overall, good experience

Flavor Phuket

Reviewed By logan2156 - Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Recently ate at this restaurant,small,could do with a revamp decor wise,friendly owners and limited menu.Takes a bit of time for orders to arrive as the owner is the only chef but the food was nicely presented and very tasty.
Only negative is the overpriced wine(a Thailand problem) and excessive corkage charge of 400 baht per bottle,which is way more than a bottle of wine back home!
Food prices were fine and in line with the quality of food presented.Would I hurry back?...maybe but only after checking out other similar spots in Phuket town.

Reviewed By INtheSKYhigh - Pacific Coast Australia, Australia

i visit bollywood at least twice a month. Every time im very happy about the quality and the flavour of the dishes. Only thing a bit negative i can say its about its the size......there could be few more pieces of chicken or mutton in the curry dishes i order. The naan bread is one of the best ive had so far and as an experience traveller in India i can say this is pretty much what i eat when im there. very nice interior decoration and of course the TV with the unmissable bolliwood show it makes enjoy even more the lovely dishes. very nice job guys and please dont forget 2 pieces more of chicken in my curry. :) see you again soon

Reviewed By Asuman A

This is a plain simple eatery. The scenery is nice but given overall beauty of Phuket nothing special. Serves international and Thai food with acceptable quality. But I have to say that those terrific food and restaurant photos I had seen in other reviews create overexpectation and eventual disappointment. Take those photos as good artistic expressions not as what you expect to see. Nice place for a refreshment break.
