Top 10 restaurants in Phuket, Thailand

August 6, 2017 Nobuko Falco

Thailand’s largest island is an international magnet for beach lovers and serious divers, who enthusiastically submerge themselves in the Andaman Sea. Blue lagoons and salmon sunsets make for a dream-like atmosphere, and indeed, a vacation here can feel a bit surreal. Watersports are the most popular activities, though once you’ve had enough sun there’s still plenty to explore at the island’s aquariums, gardens, and Buddhist temples.

Sam's Steaks and Grill

Undeniably the number one Steakhouse in Patong, the readers of TripAdvisor have recently recognized us as the best fine dining experience in Phuket, and amongst the very best restaurants in Thailand! A classic steakhouse with elegant service, great wine selection and only the very best imported beef combining to make the perfect evening, every time!<br><br>The dress code for &apos;smart casual&apos; at all times. We prefer that men will wear long trousers and collared shirt, short or long sleeved, with shoes and that ladies are also suitably attired for dinner. However, we understand that we are in a hot, &apos;holiday&apos; environment and we are happy to receive guests with more casual attire providing the &apos;smart casual&apos; tone is maintained. Guests will not be allowed to dine if dressed in beach-wear or sports-wear. Thank you for kind consideration of our other diners.

Nothing much to say except this place ticks all the boxes in everything that a good steak should be.
Service staff is professional AND knowledgeable about their product.
The only reason I deducted a point is for the somewhat dated interior, but after eating their steaks you won't care much about that.
Seriously, finding quality restaurants in Patong is harder than finding a diamond on the beach. But I found one in Sam's.

My husband, 16 month old son and I ate here when we were staying in the Laguna area. The food was excellent (especially the burger and ribs) the restaurant itself was very smart with great music, and the staff were extremely kind - particularly considering our little boy was ill, which didn’t faze them nearly as much as it did us, and they packed our main courses up to take away. Thank you Ben and team!

Located down a quiet street off the main drag! Consistently open later than most bars/restaurants around. Food was prepared fresh to order everytime, waiting a few extra minutes was worth it. We ate here a couple times during our stay. Food was excellent everytime! Awesome spring rolls, great selection of craft beers, liquor and ciders, and quite possibly THE BEST Tom yum we had on the island! Also, every possible Television channel you could need if you’re looking for any sports broadcast from back home; anywhere!
John was an amazing host. He runs the front while his Mrs takes care of the back. Together they made the perfect team! Personally, John thank you for all tips both for Kata Beach area as well as tips for our stay back in Bangkok. You nailed them all! Best of luck to both of you, and until we see you again, Cheers!
A must stop if you’re in the area!

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.

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.

Green Tamarind Kitchen

Reviewed By RC319 - Norway

Absolutely the best burgers I have tasted. I seldom eat burgers, but these are fantastic! I'm in love with the bacon burger, with lots of crispy bacon on. The meat is first class, and looks terrific(especially the double/triple ones) :-) Now I'm a regular visitor here while in Thailand. They close Wednesdays, and have lots of customers, but if you are unlucky, you usually don't have to wait long before getting seated. It's worth the wait....or you could order takeaway....
