Even the most discerning and hard to please foodies will appreciate what really is one of the major attractions of the island and indeed Thailand overall, as Thai food is renowned world wide for its virtually addictive flavours and variety, and for the freshness of the ingredients. Phuket is especially acclaimed for its seafood, southern specialities such as curries with coconut milk and the fantastic range of fresh fruits also available here.

One of the wonderful characteristics of this country and its people is the reverence held for food and eating. Delectable food is readily available at almost all times of the day, and you don't have to pay an arm and a leg to enjoy the most sumptuous of dishes. Whether dining in an upmarket hotel restaurant or sitting on a stool by a street side vendor, you'll enjoy every morsel.

Khantoke Restaurant at Avista Phuket Resort

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.

Opening Hours: Daily 18:00 - 22:30
Location: Avista Phuket Resort and Spa, Kata Beach

Sizzle Restaurant in Avista Hideaway Resort

Sizzle, at Avista Hideaway Resort & Spa in the hills above southern Patong, is in one of the loveliest locations possible, enjoying lofty views over two gorgeous beaches and a sunset vista at certain times of year that is almost instantly addictive. 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.

Opening Hours: 18:00 – 23:00
Location: At Avista Hideaway Resort & Spa
