Chicco di Caffe

This outlet is in the newly converted Central Department store just outside Phuket Town.  The coffee is good but the fruit smoothies are better......

Black Canyon

I believe that Black Canyon is one of the first coffee shops in Thailand.  Good quality coffee and reasonable Thai food but always consistent - BUT I do not think much of the cakes.

The Cafe Andaman at Cape Panwa Hotel

There is a very extensive menu at the Cafe Andaman at the Cape Panwa Hotel but I keep returning to a very real favourite - 'Pad Kana Moo Krob' - Saute Kale with Crispy Pork - aroi mak mak.

What a very real pleasure.

Ninety-Four Coffee

Well there are a number of 94's around Phuket Town and they are reasonable coffees but I am always at the wrong time for a cake........

The Green Man

For a swift escape to a Traditional oak beamed Pub - try The Green Man.

The pub certainly stands out as you approach it because suddenly you are transported into the countryside in the UK.

I ordered a Thai dish and macaroni cheese.  The Thai dish was dreadful but the macaroni cheese was superb - unfortunately my daughter got to eat that one.

There is a restaurant upstairs called 'Carte Blanche' which has some good reviews and is open in the evenings.

BUT there is a rumor that it's been taken over?

If you are in need for come 'farang / meat and potatoes' food at a good price then visit Fatty's - it is quietly busy and there are a number of regular clients - Russell from the Sunset Bar took me!

The mashed potato and gravy is a real pleasure - and real.

For many people who live here it is a favourite - forum.

Peang-Prai Restaurant

Our daughter wanted an elephant ride and my wife Chuen chose to take Jemma to the Bang Pae Safari in Thalang.

The reason that Cheun chose this safari was that we could have lunch at the Peang-Prai Resort & Restaurant.

The food was great - we had Thai food and ate it Thai style - putting all the dishes in the middle and sharing them. The best fried rice with prawns I have had was in this scenic location.  The staff were lovely and so attentive - we visited the Gibbons and the Waterfall and came back for coffee and ice-cream - the Cappuccino was tasty and beautifully presented.

I don't need to be asked if I want to return.
Here's some photographs

Coffee Max

Coffee Max is a trade name in Thailand - but my choice of location for Coffee Max is on the roundabout in old Phuket Town.  You can sit outside and watch the world pass you by - a wonderful spot.

Then if you have some fresh ice cream then it is even better.

Big Chicken

We call this place the big chicken - because......

Some very nice Thai food, sticky rice is very nice and of course there is lots of barbecued chicken to choose from - try here and KFC will not be visited again.

Very nice after a round of golf next door at the Phuket Country Club.
