While there are more great eating places then I can possibly list out in such a short space, here are the insider tips on top food destinations -
1.Da Vinci - Nai Harn
Great Italian food, down to earth prices and a cool ambience have made this place into a destination for many of the south's residents and tourists alike. Wood fired pizzas remain a specialty and a well thought out kids play area, makes it great for the entire family.
2.9th Floor - Patong
What was once Phuket's best kept secret has evolved into one of the busiest eating outlets here. Manager Thomas and his stunning crew of black clad waitresses draw repeat business from nearly everyone who has a meal there. Great views, excellent service and a large menu keep people coming back. Reservations suggested.
3.Raya - Phuket City
Thai food to die for in this charming Sino - Portuguese neighborhood this place ranks high by locals with a trickle of well informed tourists. Family run, and distinct if you are going to have a Thai meal in Phuket then this would be an excellent choice.
4.Villa Market - Chalong
This long established Bangkok favorite made a gutsy move to Phuket at the Home Pro Village and has been an overnight sensation. Both Farangs and Thais alike are making the regular trip south of the border to find brands and food that simply is not available at any other market here.
5.Woody's Sandwich Shoppe- Patong/Chalong/Cherngtalay
Computer guide writer Woody first started off with his wife baking products for local Starbuck's outlet and then went into business for themselves. Simple formula, good locations, freshly made food, free fast internet and friendly staff have made this an island wide chain. Also home to Woody's own self help computer clinics "PC Therapy."
