Phuket Restaurants and Dining

Where to Eat in Phuket (and what...)

If you love food, you will love Phuket. There are restaurants to suit every taste serving a huge selection of western and Asian food. The variety of cuisine and dining experiences is one of the major attractions of the island. You can eat breakfast at your hotel, lunch at a local noodle stall by the roadside, and have dinner with fine wines in a sophisticated air-conditioned restaurant.

Fancy a snack in between? One of the wonderful characteristics of Thailand is the reverence for food and eating, so you can eat at almost any time of the day. Tropical fruit, banana fritters, barbecue chicken and sticky rice? It's all here... (try out TOP 10!)

While Thai food is renowned world-wide for its wonderful flavours and fresh ingredients, Phuket is especially famous for its seafood, and, you don't have to empty your bank account to enjoy the most sumptuous of dishes. Browse through our location and food guides, or go straight to our handy Restaurant Reviews Guide with contact details and reviews of restaurants all over the island. If you'd like to learn about Thai cooking, check out the information about schools which offer short courses.
