An acronym of sassy, unique, authentic and yummy, Suay has garnered great acclaim for its skillful balance of Thai and western flavours. It has three outlets on the island, one each at Phuket Town, Cherngtalay, and Porto de Phuket. This makes it popular with discerning tourists as well as locals. Standout dishes include Foie Gras with Betel Leaves, Tom Yam Lobster Bisque, and Grilled Sous Vide Duck Breast in Hot Basil Sauce. The restaurants are all upmarket, yet cosy and intimate, with indoor and alfresco garden seating.
Siam Supper Club
You will love Siam Supper Club,a chic bar and grill located near the entrance of Laguna. A great place to network and socialise, the dark wood walls and leather upholstery lend it a gentleman’s club vibe. The long bar is usually packed, while soft jazz music plays in the background. Discover meats, fish and pizzas on the menu. This is an easygoing experience, despite the exclusive feel of the restaurant. A classy affair.
