Lock Tien Food Court (aka Old Siam Theatre Local Food Court) - closed

Lock Tien Food Court is a stop for everyone because there is so much to see. It is a Traditional Food Court so find your seat and then go and get your food so that there is always someone looking after the things on your table.

The Food Court is popular with the local people and with Tour Groups from Bangkok so please expect it to be busy. In fact the Food Court has been at this position for the last 50+ years

It is in the very near to the heart of Phuket Old Town so simply go and have a look and see whether you are able to manage eating there but it can be quite busy so get there before midday before it gets busy - however if you are late then it can be sold out!

There are a number of food stands around the outside so there is a quite big selection of dishes.

Well - the Por Pia (Fujian Style) Spring rolls were fabulous and yes they were good and they were certainly fresh - i watched the man roll them for us! After reading more I found that the gentleman rolling them may have been Khun Ko Lai, who has been rolling these specific style spring rolls for more than 40 years!

I kept reading about the Satay in a lot of reviews and they seemed to be like many of the Street food stalls scattered throughout Phuket.

Then came the noodles and we chose a different style of Hokkien Nooodles - 'Mee Nam Tom Yum Kong' - very nice but still too spicy for many, I enjoyed it sooo much I spooned out the soup which was left.

There are a number of popular dishes that I did not want to try though

I would say that it is also popular with people who have had dinner and choose to come here for the Traditional Thai Deserts - including the 'Oh Eaw' - a mixture of shaved ice, beans, jelly banana and syrup.

Approximate price: $$$$$ 
Address: Crossroads between Dibuk + Yaowarat Road
Hours: 6:30 - 17:00 (Closed on Tuesday OR when food runs out)
