Phuket, Thailand

Read Introduction

Where to eat in Phuket or which are the best Phuket restaurants? The vibrant Phuket restaurants scene justifies a visit to the island all on its own: Gastronomy is one of the main pillars of Thai culture, and it’s superbly represented in Phuket which, as an island, logically offers a great choice of seafood restaurants. Thai dining is able to please almost any epicurean attracted by exotic flavours, yet as one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world the island hosts an impressive array of international restaurants with many delicious dishes to discover - from street fare to five-star dishes.

General advice: When eating seafood please make sure that it is fresh. It should not smell bad, fish eyes should not be dry or not clear, and gills should be red. Prawns should not be soft. Extreme caution regarding mussels, should be closed when raw and open once cooked. (The best is when the restaurants keep the fish and seafood alive – you select it and they cook it fresh for you). We do recommend that you point out what exactly you want (which fish e.g.) and check the weight of the fish once they put it on the scale.

You can bring alcohol to any normal Phuket restaurant (excluding beer, they will have it and not allow you to bring it in). You can also bring soft-drinks they might not be offering (e.g. Diet Coke); however you have to make sure that the restaurant does not offer it before drinking your own.

Every Phuket restaurant offers beer, however if you should be in the mood of drinking wine or spirits we advise you to bring that with you. Bars/Clubs normally charge a small fee per bottle opened and you'll have to pay for the mixers.

Please note:

    • Muslim-owned restaurants do not offer any alcohol and don’t like to see if you bring your own. When a restaurant is located further away, make sure to call first and ask if they are open.
    • In case you plan to visit an unknown restaurant in Phuket, especially in the low (green) season, please call the restaurant first to re-check the opening hours.
Phuket restaurant reviews: We visit a lot of restaurants in Phuket on a regular basis. Our star rating translates as follows: 1* (star) = not good  –  5* (star) = excellent. Bon appetit!
