Jungceylon Restaurants

Where to Eat in Jungceylon

Jungceylon is a wonderful destination for both shopping and dining enthusiasts. Around the areas known as the Port Square, Silang Boulevard and Sino Phuket Zone you’ll find rows of restaurants, bars and coffee shops serving Thai, European, Korean, Japanese and Chinese cuisine. Like a large courtyard, the Sino Phuket Zone is an ‘open-air’ set up (it’s actually covered but the roof is so high up, you won’t notice it.)

Most venues along this strip provide not only indoors but also ‘outdoors’ seating, making it the perfect place to experience good food or to just hang out and people watch all year round, come rain or shine.

Joe Louis Thai Restaurant

Themed restaurants can be tricky to pull off but Joe Louis, with its well-displayed puppets originally used in the multi-award-winning Joe Louis puppet theatre in Bangkok, is a winner. This beautiful restaurant deals primarily in Thai food with specialty dishes such as tom yam river prawns, spicy sliced Chinese kale stalks, salad with ground pork and shrimp, and spicy salted duck’s egg paste with vegetables.

Le Siam

Le Siam offers Thai fine cuisine with high-standard service. Its orange-and-red décor has a warm feeling with Thai artwork on the walls. Le Siam’s kitchen features classic Thai food with a reasonable degree of spiciness, meaning non-Thais can also enjoy it.

The Usual Suspects

Yes, all the usual suspects – KFC, Macca and Burger King are all present and correct here and if you need your fast food rush they’re all within staggering distance of each other but it’s good to know that there are a few food outlets at Jungceylon that are not dedicated to making you look outlandishly obese.

With branches in Bangkok and a sister restaurant in Central Festival, Urban has ambitions to be a chain but is still keeping things personal and that’s good.
