10 Best Indian Restaurants in Phuket

Dining in Phuket

Phuket has many Indian restaurants, which is not surprising when you consider it is one of the more cosmopolitan destinations in Thailand. The broad international appeal of Thailand’s most popular island attracts visitors from around the world. As a result, there is a wide choice of cuisines available alongside the outstanding native Thai dishes, including a good selection of Indian eateries. Whether you are visiting from India and want a taste of home or you just really fancy a curry, this list of the best Indian restaurants in Phuket is for you.

Common features of curry houses across the island include outstanding service, high-quality dishes and a price range which, while not as cheap as Thai food, is not in the budget-buster levels. Excellent offerings are impressively well spread around Phuket, with good choices available around most of the main beach destinations. We’ve picked out the best of them below.

Tantra Patong Beach

Tantra is an odd combination of Indian restaurant and British-style pub, making it particularly ideal for those travelling from the UK who love a good curry.
