This island is filled with impressive restaurants offering delicious cuisines and a relaxing atmosphere.

But with so many choices, it can be hard to decide which restaurant is worth your time and money. Thus, to help you with your search, here are some of Phuket’s must-try restaurants!

    Blue Elephant
    Blue Elephant is one of the most well-known names in Thai cuisine. They offer a rich and exotic combination of flavours once uniquely created for the Royal Palace. Each dish in the restaurant’s vast and original menu is richly flavoured and wonderfully presented. Make sure to try their Seng Wa Goong Pla Duk Foo, which is a Royal Thai dish with shrimp as the main ingredient. Besides the food, the design of the restaurant is beautiful as well. It’s based in a splendid old Phra Pitak Chinpracha Mansion that used to belong to a governor. This adds a new dimension to fine dining, as the opulent old mansion adds a luxurious touch. Finally, Blue Elephant offers cooking classes, allowing you to learn more about the art of Royal Thai cuisine.
