We, myself, wife & two children, 20 & 17 were in Phuket from 15th to 22nd August. Stayed at Amari Coral Beach Hotel.
Instead of writing a detailed JBR, I will just comment on the restaurants we went to and may be this will help a few people who plan to be in Patong shortly.
15.08.2008: For dinner we decided to go to Jungcylone and when there found in the basement a food court known as Food Heaven. It’s all Thai Food and we ate to our capacity and paid just THB 400. Graet food and very cheap.
16.08.2008: For lunch went to Sabai Sabai on Soi Post Office but it was full. Were not in a mood to wait so decided to have Pizzas at Napoli that is just next to Sabai Sabai. We ordered two large Pizzas and 4 drinks and paid THB 900. The Pizzas were just OK.
For Dinner went to Shakers on Rut-U-Thit road. Food here was great. We had 4 soups, 2 starters, 4 main courses, 6 drinks and paid THB 1500. I would still say the prices were cheap because had we been 6 people, the food would have been enough. This place is highly recommended.
17.08.2008: Were at Jungcylone for shopping and on our way out saw Burger King and decided to have lunch here. No comments as you all know about it.
For dinner again went to Sabai Sabai but it was again full. Just opposite is S&G. Had read some good reviews about this place but we were actually disappointed with the quality of food and also the prices.
18.08.2008: For lunch went to Molly Malloons, what a great place this is. Had a great lunch here. Had 4 drinks & 4 main courses and paid THB 1350, not cheap but the food was simply too good.
For dinner went to Savoey-Great but expensive. Lobster @ THB 250/100 gms-Our two lobsters weighed 1.4 kg. Tiger prawns @ THB 200 / 100 gms, wanted to have 4 of these tOo but they weighed 1.6 kgs so did not TO order these and just ordered 2 lobsters. Also ordered 4 soups & 4 drinks, 2 garlic breads and paid THB 4762, TOOOOOOOO expensive but we enjoyed our dinner.
19.08.2008: Our hotel Amari has a free shuttle to Kata beach so decided to avail this and spend the day at Kata. Had lunch at the various food stalls here.
For dinner went to Orchids at Bangla Road, next to Sea Hag. Had a great dinner and this place is highly recommended too. Had 2 soups, 4 main courses, 4 drinks & 3 pancakes with icecream and paid THB 1220.
20.08.2008: Had to go to Jungcylone for some more shopping and at Lunch time again went to Food Heaven in the basement there. Cheap & good Thai food.
At dinner time were exploring Bangla Road when we saw The Pizza Company so went in. Ordered one large & one small pizza with 4 drinks and paid THB 650. The pizzas here are really good.
21.08.2008: For lunch went to Two Black Sheep and had another fantastic lunch. This place is on Rut-u-Thit road. Don’t remember what we ordered but when we came out, we were all quite happy.
For dinner went to Sweets to have another great dinner. Ordered 4 drinks, 3 soups, 1 sea food salad, 1 garlic bread, 4 main courses and 2 banana pancakes with icecream and just paid THB 1165. Highly recommended.
22.08.2008: Had to leave for the airport at 1:00 PM so no more lunch or dinner in Patong.
