Its not my favorite restaurant but a good place for food and drinks. Restaurant was very well decorated with paintings which makes me presume its owned by some artist. They offered some seasonal fruits with the food we ordered, food was average. To make dinning experience very exotic the outdoor area was with lots of tropical plants and indoor decorated with paintings, and some music running in the background. Food costed us around 40 SGD for 2pax.

This place looks like it has the potential to be a lot better. It has nice indoor/outdoor areas. I think we were one of only 3 groups of people dining that night.

The food was okay, just standard Thai fare presented nicely and in a nicer setting than usual. I was expecting better.

Cocktails were really good.

The staff were friendly but unobtrusive. They organised a taxi for us when we had finished our meal.

If you happen to be close by, it is fine, but it is quite out of the way if you are coming from any further than Patong.

A TOP RECOMMENDATION: I eat every evening meal at Lim's while in Phuket, it's that good. Phuket has numerous low cost trash restaurants and a handful of trying to be good but not good and throughly expensive places. Lim's is my only Phuket dinner recommendation.

In the back kitchen is literally a grandmother serving up authentic Thai food with quality ingredients. There is nothing on the menu bad. Order with no fear.

The staff of service boys are eager to serve though their English is a tad lacking, always good to have them repeat your order to you.

There is outdoor & indoor seating, plenty of fans and the whole space is very chic and nicely illuminated. An upper bar area with great cocktails and lounge type seating makes a it a great way to start the evening. Dress is smart casual (meaning shirts with collars and no flip flops)/

Pricing is reasonable but it's not Thai cheap (think more Western). Nice wine list, but like all wine in Thailand - expensive.

Sadly, Lim's was dead quiet during the week of our visit (though I suggest reservations). The last night we ended dinner alone in the restaurant - off putting if I didn't trust the place throughly. It was indeed a private dining experience in a nice comfy environment.

TIP: It's 200 Bhat Tuk Tuk ride from anywhere in Patong to the restaurant. Follow the beach road North, you'll pass a parking lot on the left (seaside) with cart food stalls and immediately the Sunset Beach Resort, TURN RIGHT and go up the hill about 400 meters. If the road looks deserted - you're heading the right way. Lim's entrance is directly on the road.

Heading home, they can call you a Tuk Tuk or we simply walked down the hill (< 10 minutes) and got a Tuk Tuk on the main road, no problems and a nice stroll!

Great restaurant, third vist in the last couple of years, lovely, relaxed environemt and good service. Sad the restaurant was so quiet, a bit of signage on on the main road would work wonders.

We had the pleasure of visiting Lim's on new years eve and had a wonderful experience! The restaurant is a bit hard to find but call the restaurant and they will talk to the driver and direct him for you. Situated up on the hill it has beautiful views and a nice garden where you really feel that you are in a tropical paradise. The food is not out out of this world, but good. The pomelo salad is amazing. You must try their mango daquiri!!! There is also a nice lounge next door which is connected to the restaurant which is a nice place to go for a drink before or after your meal. The ambiance, plus good food and wine and add in great service and you will have a very nice and memorable meal. Book a table beforehand. Thank you to Daniel and the other friendly faces at Lims for a great new years eve celebration!!
