ราชรส ตมซำ

ราชรส ตมซำ seems to be our most commonly used Dim Sum restaurant in Phuket that we seem to visit - it is always wonderful and always busy - which makes this a good sign! So how does a Dim Sum restaurant work? Well this is something that was not immediately clear. But in the fridges at the front there are a plethora of different dishes, take a tray and place each dish on it. The cost of each dish is linked to the type of small dish that it is on...

But what each dish is?

Well I have absolutely no idea...

I cannot tell you how beautiful these freshly rolled Dim Sums which are made at the front are but they really must be had.

I love the selection of Dim Sum 

and of course the hot tea that is served with it. You really must visit a Dim Sum restaurant in Phuket when you visit - fabulous.

Pancake Corner and the Coffee Club (The Limelight)

Pancake Corner and the Coffee Club is a franchise in Thailand for deserts (primarily Pancake dishes) and coffee.

We usually go in here for a coffee (and then get a cake) - it is adjacent to the food hall on the ground floor.

The coffee shop is simple and quite artfully decorated.

The coffee is great and it is worth visiting here after some food in the food hall.

If you really need that cup of blended tea they have that as well.

Paandai Cafe

The Cafe was a plenty find whilst my wife was having her hair done.

It seems to be a recent opening and there did not seem to be much happening there whilst I was there - the air-conditioning was not on which is always a sign for it not going to be busy.

So I sat outside to save them money. It was a great spot to watch the world drive past me.

The coffee was smooth and certainly worth drinking and it was served with a bottle of cold water - a nice touch.

Good Luck - here's a positive review.

Cloud 19 - Lianappa

This is certainly a special place to visit - but this is not for everybody.

Cloud 19 is the boutique hotel and Lianappa is the restaurant and this means that it may well be a little expensive for some visitors to Phuket BUT for somewhere special whilst you are here?

There are a number of wonderful cocktails for you to try - we always do...

The restaurant serves both Thai food 

and Western food - both very good.

The Beach Bar

I think that I might have been here too many times and been tired of this here - but I haven't. The Beach Bar continues to be a wonderful spot on the coast near Ao Yon and in the South of Phuket.

Over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the amount of people coming here and also the amount of growth along this road BUT nothing has taken away the beauty of this place.

The service is consistently good and this matches the food - every time, but we have started getting their earlier (5:30pm) because it has become so popular.

I hope this continues to be successful and they seem to be open for a longer period around the year.

The beach becoming a location for a wedding in Phuket...

I promised some food photographs so here they are - delicious...

All with a cold beer (of course)
