Khantoke is named after a northern Thai and Lao custom of communal dining that involves serving several dishes on an ornate pedestal tray. This unique method of enjoying mouth-watering dishes is not only outrageously colourful but also a relaxed yet intimate way of sharing one of life’s most enjoyable aspects – good food and drink. Khantoke at Avista is an innovative rooftop arrangement that comprises beautifully crafted low teakwood tables, ‘mon’ triangular floor cushions, teakwood ‘salas’ or gazebos and soft traditional lighting. It’s all very Lanna – northern Thai and the food served here is based on royal Thai cuisine, which goes in heavily for attractive food presentation and complementing dishes.

This rooftop steakhouse seats just 32 and as a result it enjoys an intimate atmosphere with staff members providing optimum personal service. Helmed by US-born Executive Chef Timothy C. Westaway, his many years of culinary experiences around the globe are showcased in Cajun and Hawaiian influences to an extraordinary degree, making Sizzle one of the most eclectic yet well-defined five-star restaurant experiences in Phuket.
