Restaurants in Phuket

The China Inn Café is one of the easiest Phuket restaurants to find because of its red exterior. Its interior is just as grand with elaborate antiques and cuisine embellished with flavor. Though the menu has its share of western options, Thai fare is this Phuket restaurant’s specialty, with main dishes ranging from spring rolls with prawns to curries and pasta. The Grotto is one of the best restaurants in Phuket for a lunchtime encounter. Couple your meal with a good book or lose yourself in the palette of colors that make up the sky as the sun sets over the edge of Phranang Beach. Of all of the restaurants in Phuket, Krua Phranang is the go-to for an intimate, romantic experience. Whether you choose to walk under the moonlight or stay seated to enjoy the breathtaking view of beaches, cliffs, and outlying islands, there’s plenty to enjoy about this establishment.

The view: The crush of waves on the rocks below adds another sensory layer to romantic Baan Rim Pa, an open-air, two-story teak house on a cliff above a crescent of golden sand. The sun sets on boats bobbing against a backdrop of hills fading into the Andaman Sea.

This restored, Sino-Portuguese style building, located in the heart of Phuket Town, is easy to spot thanks to its red exterior.
