“Small restaurant, BIG on taste!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We were in Phuket for 5 nights mid-June and walked past Number 6 on our second night. It was full and there was a line of people waiting for a table. We thought we'd give it a try. We ended up eating here 4 nights straight!

Even though there is a long queue, we didn't wait more than 15 mins each time around 7 - 8pm. If you are a larger group, you will have to wait longer. I saw many solo diners seated straight away. One night we turned up at 10pm and the restaurant was half empty, but you risk not having every choice on the menu as they run out of produce. If you don't want to wait, there is a van that will take you to their other restaurant, but we didn't bother.

There's a reason this place is so busy. The food is awesome! Meals are served fast, hot, fresh and very tasty. Me and my girlfriend had 4 dishes each night and paid around AU$15.00. Our last night, we were starving and on top of 4 dishes, we ordered the steamed crab (2 crabs) and the giant bbq'd prawns. Total = AU$40.00. In Sydney, this would have cost over $150.00.

Highly recommend eating here. Great location, great food and great prices. Why risk eating anywhere else when the food at Number 6 is so good? Try the yellow curry crab dish with potato. Delicious!!!

“BEST RESTAURANT HANDS DOWN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

BEST RESTAURANT IN PHUKET NOT KIDDING. Food is good, portions are huge. Good thai iced milk tea and super affordable prices. Every dish was good. We came back again before we left. Be prepared to queue though. We were lucky the first time, we got a table before the crowd came.

Highly recommended :)

“Good food!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Food from number 6 taste good. The eatery is located near Bangla street. (there is a new branch located further away). There are quite a variety of thai food to choose and they are delicious. The only challenge is that most of the time there is long queue waiting to be serve. I think the queue speaks a thousand words.

“Must eat here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Okay so I can see why there is always massive lines here, went around 5pm and there wasn't any.

The food is just amazing, had the pad Thai and chicken with chilli on steamed rice.

Prices are some of the best around here.

Also try the mango with steamed rice for dessert.
