It's been several years since I've been to phuket and I was impressed by this mall. Look, this is phuket, a beach holiday destination. Don't expect something as good as what you find in central bangkok or any other major city.

There's a pretty decent food court on the ground floor, and one on the 3rd floor (didn't try).

However, we found a nice little restaurant on the 3rd floor, near the departmental store entrance called SA RA PAD ZAAB / THAI SPICY. Strangely, there's nothing on tripadvisor on this restaurant.

It was pretty good and reasonable. Comparable to some of the Esarn food we tried in Bangkok.

It's a shopping mall, with air conditioning. It has many shops to wander around and look at on a hot day.As far as it being a tourist attraction, i don't know, as i don't plan my holidays around shopping.

Went here for some shopping. We don't live near any large malls at home so great to get some large chain stores with pricing less than Aus. Really clean and cool indoors. Large range of shops and great options for lunch. Was 600baht in taxi from Kata Beach. Easy to get taxi out front - no need to have driver wait. Where other entertainment options like cinema and 9D experiences but did not try these. Was a cool tech alley thing on top floor for phone stuff and repairs - and the staff/local cafeteria if your after some real thai food - I can't read Thai so was too scared to order.

Hopefully they provide longer hours parking, 3hours wasn’t enough e.g. face facial 2hours, lunch 1 hour done! You have no time for shopping even though you have to purchase 1,500 baht to get an extra hour but it’s still not enough otherwise this place is great for family holiday.

This mall is hangout spot for Phuket night buddies. It remains open till 10pm. And has a range of cuisines. We had Japanese food which was served really nicely. From food to gadgets this mall has it all.
