7 Best Restaurants in Phuket Thailand by GrabFood

What Are Phuket Best Restaurants?

Phuket Best Restaurants list wasn’t too difficult to write this year. 24 years on the island offered us many changes to visit a lot of them, and we try not to fall into routines. Phuket culinary scene has evolved a lot in recent years and the choice of restaurants has grown tremendously. Having amazing restaurants in Phuket happened naturally for a few reasons: 1) Thailand is naturally blessed with a fantastic cuisine, able to offer something great for everyone, at any price. 2) Phuket has a beautiful choice of excellent and very fresh seafood… and 3) the island, the sea, and the beaches are so beautiful, it was just a question of time for some great chefs from around the world to come and settled down, calling Phuket their new home.

Deciding which are the best is challenging since there are so many factors to consider: Food of course, then setting, service and price. And even great restaurants can have a bad day, so we usually give at least a second chance. In any case, we never tell in advance so we are always treated like normal anonymous customers. No special treatments or free meals!

Some restaurants are fancy and some are really local. Not everyone will agree with us but these are the place we love to go and to go back… Note that there are quite a lot of restaurants to review in Phuket and while we did try a lot of them, we still haven’t tried a few so this list might evolve during the year.

Bampot Kitchen

Bampot is a beautiful restaurant found at the entrance of the well-known Laguna Phuket, near the trendy ‘Boat Avenue’. Chef Jamie serves a modern cuisine prepared with great care without being sophisticated. It really is all about balance without fuss. This well-designed restaurant is great to meet with friends who share your passion for great food. And since it’s not overly expensive, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to visit Bampot. Note that the place is very popular so while reservations are not compulsory, they are recommended. 

Black Ginger is a beautiful and excellent Thai restaurant in the middle of a small lake inside the Slate Resort on Bangtao beach. The food is really good and the magical setting adds a surreal touch to the experience as a raft gently glides from the restaurant to pick you up at the pontoon, illuminated by real torches. Chef Piak prepares a unique and real Thai cuisine, including some Phuket specialties and fabulous desserts. You should definitely try her Som Tam, Tom Yum, Panaeng curry and crispy prawns with battered cha-plu leaves.

Mom Tri’s Kitchen is one of the longest established restaurants in Phuket, one of the few places serving real cuisine when there was just a handful. Chef Darren and Chef Sura prepare an excellent Thai cuisine, including seafood and some real Phuket dishes. The restaurant is in a wooden Thai style house, on a small cliff with beautiful sea views. Mom Tri’s Kitchen is also known to keep a superb wine cellar to go with your romantic dinner. Prices are on the high side and booking are strongly recommended. 

Tu Kab Khao is a popular Thai restaurant in Phuket town serving great southern Thai food, a chance to try their selection of dishes typical from Phuket. Tu Kab Khao is the name given to a small closet every Thai house had long time ago to keep the food safe from ants and flies for the next meal. The feet of that closet were placed in a bowl of water to keep the ants away.

La Gritta at Amari Phuket at the southern end of Patong combines a great Italian cuisine with a unique view on the entire Patong bay and a spotless service at good price. Book in advance and take your loved one to a great romantic evening you won’t forget.


Mor Mu Dong has always been one of our all times favourites in Phuket. It’s hidden in the mangrove somewhere in the south of the island, and you still eat on the floor of little huts with thatched roofs over the water. The food is great and as local as it gets. Best of all it’s not even expensive. If you travelled all the way to experience Thailand and Thai food, this is a real experience you won’t forget. Their seafood is great and some are really local like the beloved ‘Gaeng Som Pla’ a delicious pungent and sour fish curry that is really spicy but so good… if you can take it! Note that if you can’t eat on the floor, Mor Mu Dong also has normal sitting areas, but it’s not as fun.

Suay Restaurant

Suay started modestly in a little house a decade ago, hidden in a back street of Phuket town and became popular almost instantly. At the time there was basically 2 kinds of Thai food in Phuket: traditional Thai food (which is great by the way) and overly complicated Thai food. Chef Tammasak came with a young, fresh and affordable approach that was much-needed. The little house in a cute garden is a great place to end your exploration of the old Phuket Town.

So at the end, what are you waiting for so book hotel online with ส่วนลด Cheaptickets in Thailand and enjoy with the family with this food.
