5 Best Food Courts in Phuket

Cheap Phuket Food

This list of the best food courts in Phuket gives you a choice of places to enjoy extremely cheap but safe and tasty food. Most visitors to Thailand want to experience the world-renowned cuisine of the country in its native environment, but it is very easy to be put off by the idea of potentially unhygienic street food. While this is rarely a problem, food courts offer a good way to enjoy cheap Thai dishes in bright, clean environments.

Often found in supermarkets and shopping malls, food courts are very popular with locals for their low prices, reasonably good quality (they’re not going to win any culinary awards, but the food certainly isn’t bad) and air-conditioned comfort. Most places use a centralised payment system, where you buy a card with a set amount of credit, which you spend on food before collecting the change when you return the card. This speeds up the purchasing process, meaning that you’re not fiddling with small change at each individual stall.

Tesco Lotus Extra Phuket Town

Despite being not particularly obvious or well signposted, the second floor of the Tesco Lotus supermarket and mall along Bypass Road is one of the busiest food courts in Phuket. The impressive range of mostly Thai dishes, with a few international choices, makes it a popular choice for locals as well as tourists, with a nearby kids play area making it a family-friendly place. The food court has quite a cheap, supermarket-like look, but there’s no arguing with seafood dishes from as little as 60 baht each.

  • Opening Hours: 09:00 – 23:00
  • Location: 104 Moo 5, Bypass Road, Phuket Town
  • Tel: +66 (0)7 625 4888

Jungceylon’s basement-level Food Bazaar has the look and feel of a Chinese market, with a great range of stalls featuring Thai, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Indian cuisine. It combines a traditional appearance with some excellent modern facilities, including a kids play area and hot water for personally washing your cutlery, giving you complete peace of mind about the cleanliness. This does come at a cost, however. While the quality is generally higher than most food courts in Phuket, the prices are also higher, with Pad Thai for 250 baht. Read More...

There is a huge choice of dining options at Central Festival, but the Food Terrace is rather hidden in a slightly obscure corner of the third floor, past the cinema. It has a chic look and a modest selection of mostly Thai dishes. So popular is it with locals, most of the signs around the court are only written in Thai. The choice of dishes stretches beyond the usual tourist favourites of Pad Thai and Tom Yam Goong, featuring the likes of Som Tam and spicy pork salad. Prices are generally around 50-100 baht per dish. Read More...

Limelight Avenue Phuket Town

Found towards the back of the ground floor of the Limelight Avenue Mall, the food court reflects the urban lifestyle theme with a modern design featuring bright colours. Relatively modest in size, there are only about 15 stalls to choose from, serving mostly Thai dishes. There are some notable exceptions to that rule, including Pancake Corner, which makes a good choice for a tasty breakfast. The quality is reasonable throughout and prices generally in the 50 – 100 baht bracket. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
  • Location: 2/23 Talat Yai, Phuket Town
  • Tel: +66 (0)7 621 3664

Although Patong Beach Food Court does not technically qualify as a food court because it is not housed in an air-conditioned building (and does not use a centralised payment system), its convenient location and great food makes it impossible not to mention in a list of the best food courts in Phuket. Situated right on Patong Beach, it is a great place to take a break from the sun, sea and sand and enjoy a choice of dishes ranging from Thai seafood to a huge selection of international dishes. Prices may not be quite as low as in the mall-based food courts, but they are still very competitive for a beachfront eatery. Unlike with the others on this list, payment is made directly to the restaurant you are buying from. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 09:30 – 22:30
  • Location: Loma Park, Patong
