Eight most popular Phuket restaurants, the first one will let you fall
  • "What delicious food is there in Phuket?"
  • "I want to go to the celebrity restaurant in Phuket, what are the good recommendations?"
  • "Which restaurant in Phuket is the most unique?"

I was often asked by my friends, because I have been to Phuket several times, and I have eaten a lot of food, and naturally it has become the "Phuket Food Expert" in the eyes of friends, :p. Although I dare not claim to be awesome, I am indeed a veteran foodie, and there are quite a few “mouth marks” left in Phuket.
Today I will share with you my "eating experience", which is a small benefit to the vast number of delicious mouths ~


Boat Seafood

Cost: About $15/person
Taste: ★★★★★
Enviroment: ★★★★✰ 

Boat Seafood may be one of the best seafood shops in the old town of Phuket. When I first went to eat, it completely captured my heart.

Because its decoration style is that kind of small freshness, whether it is Tiffany blue wooden tables and chairs, marine-style photo walls or vibrant green plants, it makes people feel very comfortable.


The dishes of his family completely adhere to the traditional Thai practices, and they are very authentic without improvement. Especially curry crab, my favorite! ! ! So every time I go to Phuket, when it comes to eating seafood, the first thing that flashes in my head is boat seafood!

Why do you love curry crab so much? Because the crabs of Boat Seafood are ordered on the spot, the crab meat is very delicious, you can also feel that the curry soup is fully integrated into the texture of the fresh crab meat, and the egg juice plays a neutralizing role, making the taste more rich.
Let me tell you a little Tips: Taking the soup with bibimbap is also a gem.
Raw shrimp salad is also a very delicious food for me. I used to not eat raw shrimp, but after eating seafood on board, I fell in love with this sour and spicy feeling.
In addition, his grilled garlic lobster and garlic peel shrimp are very delicious, all of which are my nemesis for weight loss.

You can feel the chef's intentions in every dish you eat in the boat seafood, and each bite conveys a warm power, not like the food mechanized in a fast food restaurant, which has a taste but no temperature. If you really love food and seafood, try it in Phuket.

PS: The owner of Boat Seafood can speak Chinese, and the people are very enthusiastic. If you have any questions, you can ask him directly. In addition, the service of his family is also very good. After the meal, you will also be given fruits. Very intimate.

Recommended dishes: Curry Crab, Mixed Raw Shrimp, Curry Squid, Garlic Shrimp, Thai Fried Razor Clams, Fried Prawns with Salted Egg, Seafood Barbecue, Grilled Garlic Lobster (In fact, every dish in his family is very delicious, I want to recommend)

Surf and Turf by Soul Kitchen

Cost: About $20-$35/person
Taste: ★★★★✰
Enviroment: ★★★✰✰

The restaurant is located on Phang Nga Road in downtown Phuket, about 50 meters from Chartered Bank. When my friend recommended it to me for the first time, I thought it was just an ordinary restaurant. I only found out that I was wrong when I went! Although the decoration of the restaurant is relatively simple, the irresistible taste give people a feeling of being in a Michelin-star restaurant.

Every dish is like a piece of art, very beautiful! The only shortcoming is that the portion of the dishes is a bit small. For me like a big stomach king, I want to order double for every dish. Because the restaurant mainly serves Western food, local people are rarely seen, and most European and American tourists dine here.

Recommended dishes: mushroom tacos, yellow curry, goat cheese, beetroot risotto, steak, grilled sea bass, grilled honey chicken.

Address: 115 Phangnga Rd, ตำบล ตลาดใหญ่ Amphoe Mueang Phuket, Chang Wat Phuket 83000, Tailand

Tu Kab Khao

Cost: About $15-$30/person
Taste: ★★★★✰
Environment: ★★★★✰

If you want to eat authentic Thai food (Tainan cuisine), be sure to check in at Tu Kab Khao restaurant (cabinet).

The restaurant is located in an old house in Phuket Town. The exterior looks old and ordinary, but there is a huge shrimp hanging on the wall, which is very eye-catching (seeing this shrimp means you are right).

The interior decoration of the restaurant is very simple and gorgeous, with a sense of nobleness of the court style of the eighteenth century. The walls are also hung with many paintings with local characteristics, on the whole it gives a simple and classical sense of the old days.

When I look around, I find that most of the tourists are Thai locals, and there are few Chinese tourists. I heard that many Thai celebrities are guests at this restaurant, such as: Weir, Mike, Tik, James Ma, Tor ... Zhang Weijian, who is familiar to everyone, has also been here!
It can be said that Tu Kab Khao has become the most frequented place for celebrities, Skr ~ Skr ~ Skr ~ but my luck was not so good that day, and I did not meet my Weir.


PS: The restaurant's business is super hot. I didn't make a reservation in advance when I first went. The queues were all lined up and I wanted to cry, so I suggest that you must make a reservation in advance, otherwise wait for me to cry like me.

Recommended dishes: Moo Hong, fried chicken wings with garlic, yellow curry crab soup, fried sea bass, fried shrimp cake

Address: 8 Phangnga Rd, ตำบล ตลาดใหญ่ อำเภอ เมืองภูเก็ต Chang Wat Phuket 83000 Tailand
Open Time: 11:00–00:00

One Chun

Cost: About $15/person
Taste: ★★★★✰
Enviroment: ★★★✰✰

One Chun is an old-fashioned gourmet in Phuket. I also went here. When I first arrived, I was attracted by this two-story brick-and-wood building with a century-old structure. There is nothing special inside the restaurant.

Wooden furniture, green wooden beams, red brick walls ... Various antiques and old objects such as vintage clocks, records, cameras, tape recorders, vintage cupboards, tea cabinets, etc. can be seen everywhere The tiles were not deliberately pasted, but the mottled colors left by time, the whole space is full of retro flavor.


The dishes are very cost-effective. Most of the dishes are from dozens of baht to one or two hundred baht, which is very cost-effective. Recommend his crispy fried tofu. The tofu is fried to the outside and tender inside, and then served with spices such as minced meat, chili powder, black pepper, etc. It tastes delicious and cry, and we are instantly killed. The boiled vegetables with shrimp paste are also good. The dried shrimps are crispy and the vegetables are very delicious.

The restaurant is very close to the Lard Yai Sunday market. It happened that we also dine on Sunday. By the way, we went to the market and it was a perfect day.

Recommended dishes: crispy fried tofu, Thai-style braised pork, curry crab, grilled pork neck meat, boiled vegetables with shrimp paste, raw fish sauce shrimp, raspberry smoothie

Natural Restaurant

Cost: About $12-$15/person
Taste: ★★✰✰✰
Environment: ★★★★✰

Natural restaurant is located at Phutorn Lane in Phuket Town. The place is not easy to find. Jui Tui Chinese Temple is also nearby.

The restaurant has an all-wood structure, and the environment is very special. Just like its name, the whole restaurant is surrounded by green plants, and there are many Phalaenopsis. It feels like entering the virgin forest, which is quite interesting. Presumably this is one of the reasons why this restaurant has super popularity in Phuket.
There are also various wooden carvings, ceramic ornaments, old-fashioned radios, carved masks, shell lamps, etc. All the dining tables are transformed from old-style sewing machines, which are very distinctive.


If you sit in a semi-open seat, you will be attacked by mosquitoes, and my poor legs will be bitten all over, but for the sake of a beautiful environment, I finally endure.
In the case of dishes, it is not the most authentic Thai taste, but it can be felt that it has been improved. Presumably not so authentic for Thai locals, but for tourists like us, the taste is still basically qualified.

PS: The service in the restaurant is not so enthusiastic. It is a little colder than other homes. I think it may be because it is an online celebrity shop. Don’t worry about having no customers.

Recommended dishes: green mango juice, roasted pork neck meat, fried water spinach, mango glutinous rice, tom yum soup, fried crab, pork fried rice

Address: 62/5 ถนน บางกอก ตำบล ตลาดเหนือ อำเภอเมืองภูเก็ต ภูเก็ต 83000 Tailand

Kota Khao Man Gai

Cost: About $5/person
Taste: ★★★✰✰
Environment: ★★✰✰✰

Kota Khao Man Gai has a history of more than 50 years. Although the decoration is relatively simple, the environment is clean and hygienic, and it is still very famous in Phuket.

The special dishes include chicken rice, barbecued pork rice, and crispy pork rice ... I was chopped by his chicken rice for the first time.

Every grain of rice has the flavor of lemongrass, served with tender chicken and crispy pork, it is not too delicious! It is very responsible to say that the crispy pork is really delicious than other restaurants I have eaten! With a small dish with sweet and salty dipping sauce, it tastes delicious and explodes.

Raw onions, garlic, peppers, and lettuce are also on the table. I see that the Thai people at the side table are very happy to chew in their mouths, but I really ca n’t get into the hometown hahaha ~

There is also a bowl of hot chicken broth. Wow, I have lived for decades. It is the first time I have eaten such a sweet chicken broth. It is quite delicious. I can feel that it does not contain MSG, but it is very fresh.

PS: The business is really super hot during the meal, please avoid the meal.

Recommended dishes: chicken rice, barbecued pork rice, crispy pork rice

Mee Ton Poe

Cost: About $5/person
Taste: ★★★✰✰
Environment: ★★✰✰✰

Mee Ton Poe, founded in 1946, is the first Fujian noodle shop in Phuket Town. It is really a well-established store next to Surin Circle Clock Tower. The decoration of the shop is relatively simple, and it is open. The business is particularly good at noon and there are many people, so it is a little sultry.

Recommend his signature Mee pad hok, Hokkien Mee, with vegetables, pork slices and seafood, and then spread a half-boiled egg, it looks very appetizing. The salty and fragrant taste at the entrance, the noodles are very Q-elastic, and it tastes quite enjoyable. The noodle soup is also good, and ingredients such as fried pork skin and shallot are added. The soup is very fresh and has a strong seafood sweetness, which makes people want to stop.

Satay skewers are also delicious. The thin slices of roasted chicken are topped with fragrant satay sauce and topped with onions. But the only drawback is that the chicken is a little overcooked.

Overall, his noodles taste good, but the service attitude is average. If you are just rushing for the food, the bowl is OK.

Recommended dishes: Mee pad hok, crab meat curry steamed egg bun, spicy meatballs, fried rice, Thai milk tea

Address: 9/109 ถนน ศักดิเดช ตำบล ตลาดเหนือ Amphoe Mueang Phuket, Chang Wat Phuket 83000 Tailand

Pizzeria Da Moreno

Cost: About $7-$15/person
Taste: ★★★★✰
Environment: ★★✰✰✰

Sometimes it's really fate to meet a delicious restaurant. Originally, we were going to another restaurant before, but unfortunately that restaurant just happened to rest, and I met Pizzeria Da Moreno nearby.

The restaurant specializes in a variety of pizzas, with more than a dozen delicious combinations. It is worth mentioning that his pizzas are all freshly made. When we finished the order, the handsome little brother started to knead the noodles, spread the cheese spread, and finally put them in the kiln to bake. The whole process of pizza is amazing. After all, it was served directly before, and it was baked in the oven.

Sprinkle basil leaves after serving and serve on the table. The whole pizza is full of fragrance, and it makes people swallow. It tastes really good. It tastes completely out of the wall (so guilty). In my mind, it is definitely Phuket No1.

I did not expect to be able to eat traditional Italian pizza in Phuket, which really surprised me. And the attitude of the waiters here is also great, it is worth a visit ~ The only thunder point is that the egg on the creamy bacon pizza is a bit heavy, and the others are very good!

Recommended dishes: various pizzas, spaghetti bolognese, garlic bread, tiramisu

Address: Nanai Rd, Tambon Patong, Amphoe Kathu, Chang Wat Phuket 83150 Tailand
Open Time: 18:00–23:00
