I think it's the 6th time i come here, with friends, with family, it's a mandatory stop when i'm in Phuket. The Chef Justin, is not only a great swimmer, he also cook pretty decently : D

I've never found a better price/quality ratio and i'm a food freak, it's also a great way to remind us how we used to eat before, taking our time, enjoying each bite, relaxing around a nice glass of NZ Sauvignon blanc, enjoying the talk with the Chef between dishes.. Dinner can easily last 3 hours without realizing.

Contact me if you went there and you didn't like it, i will personnally refund you.

My girlfriend and I ate here on our last night in Phuket. We stayed at the Radisson which just around the corner, but read the reviews for this restaurant and so took a stroll around te corner to give it a try. We weren't disappointed.

The restaurant overlooks the Cape and is beautifully set out. The service is, as with most good hotels and restaurants in Thailand, fantastic.

We had the salmon and wagyu steak with a variety of side dishes, followed by the chocolate fondant and accompanied by red wine. every part of the meal was fantastic, and I'd highly recommend the fondant!
The meal was also preceded by complimentary lobster and caviar and crispy bread. The sorbets in between courses were also a nice touch.

Highly recommend this place for a couples dinner. Excellent value ($140AUD total for two mains, dessert and wines) and excellent food, service and venue.

If you come to a western style restaurant in an up market hotel you don't expect beach cafe prices or the same food. This is a fantastic restaurant and the best value for such a style we have had in Thailand. As suggested fare is mix of meat or fish. There is a taster menu of 3 courses at 1650 baht and for an extra 1000 baht you can a glass of wine per course. We felt that this in itself was good given prices for such restaurants in our experience around the world. The seafood is excellent. Scallops wonderful perfectly cooked. Prawn salad same. Mains of fish of day 850 baht for a whole sea bass !!!! Very very good. Wagyu strip loin again good. You have 2 side orders with these and it was too much for us!! Wine as ever in Thailand is expensive but single glasses are well priced and if you are mixing white/red prove a cheaper and more sensible option by the glass ! We couldn't do desert too full! In all we found the staff very attentive as elsewhere in the resort -excellent

From the beautifully cooked scallops to the playfully presented amuse bouche the meal was a delight from start to finish. We visited with our 2 year old daughter and the staff did everything they could to make us feel welcome in a restaurant whose food is some of the best we have tasted in Thailand. Ok, the menu is not Thai but there are a few Thai twists to some of the dishes such as the steamed fish with lemongrass. Expensive, but not at all poor value for money. If you are staying at the hotel it is a must. If no,t then if you are looking for something western for a change then you should give it a try.

Eating western cooking in a beautiful Thai resort is like wearing a waistcoat to the beach. Phuket is relaxed, unstuffy, and baking hot. Thai food is sensational, and perfect for the climate.
Even so, the Grill at the Regent entertained us, and fed us fabulously well.
The restaurant is run by chef Justin Baziuk. It occupies a tasteful, if unexciting, beige room. If not for the charming Thai waiting staff, we felt we could have been in any dining room in the western world.
The menu was not very adventurous, but was well executed. There was exceptionally light, crunchy bread and smooth butter, both made by the resort staff.
There were three plump scallops (from New Zealand, because apparently, local scallops are too puny).
There was a delicious sharing plate, meant as a starter for two. This had a few local touches like crunchy salted prawn crackers, and diced ripe mango (served beside a caramelised slab of foie gras), as well as the Thai sweet/sour/spicy flavour combo, but in two shot glasses of gazpacho. It also featured a delicate sashimi tuna raviolo with caviar, and a couple of silken slices of salmon, cured in whisky and smoked on the premises.
We had been served an amuse bouche of gazpacho before our starters. Before our main course, we were also given a passionfruit sorbet with a surprise of a dusting of popping candy.
The mains were a generous chunk of (marginally overcooked) salmon with intensely sweet roasted tomatoes. The sides outshone the fish: fresh, nutty asparagus with hollandaise sauce, and fluffy potatoes with rosemary and garlic and perfectly salted.
Seafood risotto, the other main course, was as creamy and toothsome as anyone might wish for, but the rice, prawns, scallops and mussels were a bit under-seasoned. The risotto came with (slightly incongruous) shavings of parmesan, or possibly manchego.
Dessert came early with a couple of glasses of complimentary mojito granita, festooned with pink cotton candy.
We then demolished a Valrhona chocolate platter with milk ice cream. An accompanying espresso was one of the best we've had in Thailand.
There was a well-chosen wine list (with the usual high wine prices for Thailand). We had a dry, tingly prosecco.
Service was perfect - thoughtful and efficient.
The Grill has a set menu that offers good value for three courses, as well as a la carte dishes, including grilled Wagyu and Australian steaks, rack of lamb, duck breast and chicken.
The restaurant gives no sense of locally sourced or seasonal Thai cuisine, but it certainly provided us with very accomplished, playful and refined cooking, a warm welcome, and some very happy, near-the-beach memories.
