Though Thailand is known for its culinary prowess, Phuket, in particular, shines, perhaps as brightly as the capital city of Bangkok. The Elite Concierge has hand-picked a selection of the best fine dining restaurants on the island, each offering an experience that goes far beyond delicious food. The best menus in Phuket can be found at these restaurants, all of which use only the finest and freshest ingredients. Whether you’re looking for an exquisite seafood dish or a perfectly grilled steak, Thai or European food, you’ll have plenty to choose from.
The first and only restaurant in Phuket to receive a Michelin star, PRU restaurant at Trisara encourages a sustainable approach towards food. Chef Jimmy Ophorst and his team cultivate a close relationship with local suppliers, also growing vegetables and foraging local roots, flowers and herbs on their own farm. Dress up and go – expecting to be served multiple courses featuring seasonal ingredients. A dining experience par excellence.
An acronym of sassy, unique, authentic and yummy, Suay has garnered great acclaim for its skillful balance of Thai and western flavours. With three outlets on the island – in Phuket Town, Cherngtalay, and Porto de Phuket, it is 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. Both restaurants are upmarket, yet cosy and intimate, with indoor and alfresco garden seating.

Siam Supper Club is 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. Its long bar is usually packed, while soft jazz music plays in the background. Meats, fish and pizzas feature on the menu, hinting at an easygoing experience, despite the exclusive feel of the restaurant. A classy affair.
