  • Karon Beach Square – Phuket

    Trendy Dining Complex on Karon Beach Road

    Karon Beach Square describes itself as “the latest dining destination in Phuket”. Opened in January 2015, it is a dining/nightlife complex hosting four modern outlets, each of them with a specific style, cuisine and ambience. Featuring air-conditioned indoor and al fresco outdoor areas, it is the perfect place to spend an agreeable time with friends or family while sampling delicacies from all around the world.

    Located in the grounds of the Moevenpick Resort on Karon Beach (Patak) Road, only 250m from Karon Circle, Karon Beach Square is just the right place to eat, drink, and chill out. The four venues available here are as follows: Mint (international snacks and finger-food); Café Studio (sandwiches, bakery, pastry, and ice creams); El Gaucho (Churrasco and wine); and OrientAsia (all-Asian cuisine). The complex has a contemporary design and features large outdoor spaces, enabling guests to dine and party under the stars in a trendy yet unpretentious atmosphere.

  • Mint

    Mint restaurant is the first outlet you meet on Karon Beach Square’s ground floor, when coming from the beach. It is made up of a large outdoor terrace, furnished with comfortable sofas as well as more conventional dining tables and chair. It is slightly shaded by sea almond trees. A brightly-lit circular bar counter and a pizza oven are also installed on the terrace, just next to an open-sided covered area sheltering a DJ booth (the DJ performs daily from 20:00 – 23:00) and a few tables.

    Mint is a cool venue, perfect to chill out from sunset until late, sipping skilfully mixed cocktails (classic cocktails are charged 250 baht) and feasting on delicious pizzas (290-360 baht), appetisers and snacks (seared Japanese scallops with jalapeno dressing – 280 baht), main courses (prime beef sliders with pickles and fried onion rings – 380 baht), and desserts (moist olive oil orange cake with fresh berries – 160 baht). Every Friday, Mint holds a ‘TGIF’ promotion, offering 30% discount for all beverages from 16.00 to 00.00.
