How many restaurants are there in Phuket?

I suppose if you really wanted to give a good view of all of the restaurants in Phuket you could do it professionally?

There are a lot that I have not visited - just visit Willy's site and his list of restaurants.

I have a lot more to go...

Nong Sow

If you are not troubled by few animals scurrying along the floor and the tables are not tidy. This is the best place where I have eaten freshly made Som Tam. 

When I shared this with my colleagues at work they were surprised that I had been in such a restaurant - this was certainly one which was for locals.

This was a fabulous pah dook foo that I have tasted during my stay in Phuket. 

The other dishes were also very good - we are certainly going back.

but it is a restaurant for locals DO NOT expect everything BUT quality Thai food.

Big Chicken

This is a restaurant which we have been to more than once - it is a little outside of Phuket Town (next to Phuket Country Club) and is always a pleasant lunch for us.

The restaurant serves a selection of different Thai traditional dishes but the Chicken pieces is why you choose to come here.  The freshly grilled chicken is always what we come here for AND the sticky rice - a wonderful combination.

The Beach Bar

How many restaurants are there by this name? (This is only a rhetoric question.)

There is only one Beach Bar - actually quite near our home in Ao Makham.

The food is always cooked freshly and the staff always genuinely care about us - even to the point that we did not have enough money one evening - this is what happens if you are lucky enough to be a regular customer here.

So which dishes do you want to order? I don't think that I have ever had a 'bum' dish here so please select whatever takes your fancy.

If you arrive early you will get the opportunity to watch the sun go down and Big Buddha disappear in the distance - a place to visit. It is one of Jamie's favourite restaurants but I haven't met him here yet...

Tung Ka Cafe (ทุ่งคา-กาแฟ)

This restaurant is a popular one to visit for tour agencies and tourists so do not be surprised if it is busy - you can always phone for a reservation?

The food is reasonable Thai food and we enjoyed our meals - the view was great from the top of Rang Hill and the Iced coffee was even better.

We were lucky to visit when there were a number of monkeys about which always adds to our pleasure.

Panwa House @ Cape Panwa Hotel

This is a Sino-Portuguese mansion (of which there are quite a few in Phuket Town) but what this restaurant has is it's location. Panwa House is but a few metres from the rolling sound of the waves - beautiful.

The Traditional Thai food was as good as the building was special - a real must is the chicken baked in Pandanus Leaves...

My friend Olivier swears by the Beef Massaman.

All that we had was good - we will visit again - I do work there.

I found some photographs of Panwa House during the lighter hours - before we had dinner.
