Red Onion is an extremely popular Thai restaurant located on Thaina Road in the centre of Kata town. Established for more than 20 years in its previous premises in nearby Karon, it became famous for the many people queuing along the street every night, all waiting to get a table. The move to larger premises in Kata Beach has fixed this recurrent problem, and you may have to wait for a table only on Saturdays now. This will certainly please all those who can’t imagine their holiday in Phuket without enjoying a genuine Thai fare at this restaurant.
Red Onion Thai Restaurant doesn’t owe its fame to its setting, or anything particularly enjoyable about its atmosphere (the service can be a little undiplomatic at times). The décor and furnishing of the restaurant are rather basic and simple. With white walls, wooden tables and chairs, and fan cooled, Red Onion is open to the main street that goes through Kata town, right opposite Fullmoon Beach Resort.
