Where to Eat and What to Eat in Patong

Being the main centre of tourist activity in Phuket, it's no surprise that Patong has the highest concentration of restaurants to be found on the island. Patong is a cosmopolitan place, attracting visitors from all over the world and the cuisine on offer here reflects this in its diversity.

If you're feeling adventurous there's bound to be something you've never heard of and if you're missing the pleasures of home you're sure to discover a restaurant with some down-home comfort food. Patong dining establishments run the gamut from hand-wheeled carts selling kebabs and sticky rice all the way to world-class fine dining, with celebrity chefs and award-winning wine lists.

There are Thai food courts, where you can join the locals for a delicious and incredibly inexpensive meal, mid-range restaurants with solid and budget-friendly European food and trendy places with nouvelle cuisine and arty décor where the Beautiful People come to see and be seen.

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.

Big Chicken Restaurant

Krua Tungtong, a popular restaurant in Kathu, is better known by its nickname ‘The Big Chicken.’ It’s easy to understand why, once you spot the enormous statue of a rooster in front of the venue by the side of the road in Kathu between Phuket Town and Patong. It’s inviting people to come in and try the traditional Thai and Issan food from the northeast region of Thailand known for its spiciness; dishes such as som tam (green papaya salad) and soup nor mai (shredded bamboo-shoot salad).

Kaab Gluay Restaurant

Kaab Gluay Restaurant

I bet you’re wondering what Kaab Gluay means. Well, it means “banana trunk”. And if you’re further into entomology, the word Patong, (where the restaurant itself is located) means “banana grove.” So now you know. Still, Kaab Gluay is a restaurant that has more to do with seafood than bananas.

At first, the eatery gives the impression of being a glorified food hall, but then, as people start flooding in past eight o’clock, it starts to come alive of itself. No wonder the web site exhorts readers to “come early” as it gets chock-a-block full later on. Read More...

Le Versace

There’s a very thin and precarious line running between tasteful décor and outright kitsch. The Versace flirts with this line outrageously and manages – against all the odds – to come out on top.
