10 Best Restaurants for Families in Phuket

Where can I take my kids for dinner in Phuket?

Phuket is, overall, a very family-friendly destination and all of the island’s many restaurants welcome the young ones. However, there are those places which are slightly better suited to the needs of kids than others, both in terms of practical provisions such as high chairs and play areas as well as considerations like the atmosphere and cost.

While Phuket’s restaurant scene lacks the quirkiness found in Bangkok, it is certainly not lacking in high-quality dining experiences, with great local and international dishes available. The following list details the best restaurants for families in Phuket, meaning the cuisine might not be the best around, but they are safe and comfortable for the whole family.

The largest shopping mall in Phuket, Jungceylon has an extensive array of dining options, ranging from fast food to fine dining, Irish pubs to Italian ristorantes, Japanese to German and pretty much everything in between. Even the fussiest of diners will find something to their taste. The mall also has other family-friendly facilities, including play areas, cinemas and a musical fountain with a nautical theme.

Putting the brakes on your beach day to go and eat lunch is a big disruption, particularly if you have to get cleaned up and changed in order to go to a restaurant. Kamala Beach, however, is one of the few places in Phuket where you can find cheap and cheerful eateries right by the sand. They’re not likely to win any awards for their cuisine, but they are exceptionally convenient and offer you the opportunity to munch on inexpensive international and Thai dishes with your toes in the sand.

Kan Eang@Pier is a long-established restaurant specialising in seafood and local delicacies. Located on the shore of Chalong Bay, right next to the jetty, it features both indoor and outdoor dining areas and offers great views of the marina. 'Kan eang' roughly translates as 'easy going' and it's true that, for a large restaurant dealing with so many people on a daily basis, the atmosphere at Kan Eang still stays somewhat laid back and relaxed.

As well as being a great fun activity for the family, Dino Park Mini Golf has an excellent themed restaurant. The décor is unique, with its prehistoric/dinosaur theme with walls, chairs, tables and floors fashioned out of chunky concrete ‘rocks’, with waiting staff dressed like Flintstones characters. Because of the open layout of Dino Park, it’s really best to go when the weather is dry and sunny. Read More...

Tamachart Restaurant in Phuket Town has got to be the most unusual, out-of-the-ordinary eatery this side of Phuket. It’s been going for what seems like forever now and is a tremendously popular spot for expats and locals alike as well as being a welcome oddity for visitors. It is a veritable crazy house filled to the rafters with old valve radios, sculpted masks, seashell lamps, hanging plants, fish tanks made out of TVs and computer monitors (complete with keyboards), dolls, and a fully working electric train set. Everything is bunged in here in a mish-mash of traditional Thai décor alongside the inventive, unusual and plain wacky. They also do great Thai food. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 10.30 - 23.30
  • Location: 62/5 Soi Phutorn, Phuket Town
  • Tel: +66 (0)7 621 4037
  • Cuisine: Thai

An exceptional culinary and cultural experience for the family, dining at Kopitiam on the historic Thalang Road is like a journey into the past. The cuisine is noted for its great tastes – particularly the fried chicken with basil leaves – while being the closest thing you’ll get to street food without actually going to the street vendors. Being based in a well-established and well-respected restaurant, though, you can be assured that it is safe and clean, but the prices are still excellent, rarely exceeding 100 baht per plate. If you want to give your kids the true taste of local cuisine, this is probably the best place in Phuket to do so. Read More...

EAT. Bar & Grill

Karon Beach

A family-oriented eatery by the main road through Karon, EAT. Bar & Grill specialises in well-prepared western dishes, ranging from high-end steak and lobster dishes to classic burgers and surf-and-turf. It makes a pleasant (and not excessively expensive) break from Thai food. The burgers, in particular, are rated among the best on the island.

The Cove Phuket

Ao Yon Beach

The Cove Phuket is an extremely laid-back beachfront restaurant and bungalows located right by the sand of the quaint and quiet Ao Yon Beach. Managed by a friendly, well-travelled couple, it has a great selection of mostly European food, an impressive drinks menu and superb sunset views. Most importantly, it has its own little artificial beach as well as the real thing just a step away from the restaurant. Read More...

A local favourite, especially for a Sunday lunch session, The Green Man offers good old-style English pub grub in the only ‘Tudor’ English pub on the island. The place is fitted out for private parties including weddings and birthday celebrations. It also features a kids’ playground out in the beautiful gardens. If the exoticism of Phuket is getting a bit overwhelming, it is the ideal taste of home, both in terms of décor and cuisine. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: Tue - Sun 12:00 - 02:00
  • Location: 82/15 Patak Road, 1 km from Chalong Circle, heading towards Kata Beach

The cat café and the restaurant are the same company, but set in two different rooms for obvious hygiene reasons. The former is, of course, the centre of attention. There are no less than 21 felines - most of them from rare breeds such as Persian and Siamese - waiting to be cuddled or played with, under pretty strict requirements and regulations. Aiming at attracting families and cat lovers, this cool venue serves drinks and pastries on the cat café side, and a good choice of Thai and western favourites on the restaurant side. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: Café: Tue - Sun 12:00-21:30, Restaurant: Tue - Sun 11:00 - 22:00
  • Location: 33-34 Thepkasattri Road, between Dibuk and Thalang roads, Phuket Old Town
  • Tel: +66 (0)89 471 7776
