“High end fusion.”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

What an interesting menu - with the chef/owner available to talk us through the menu. Really delicious options. Beef in the starter was incredibly tender. Not cheap - but worth paying the extra. Competent and cheerful staff. Can say only positive things.

“Brilliant food - nice ambience”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Everytime when I'm in Phuket I have to have at least once dinner at Tatonka. It's a really nice and special place, really friendly staff and the food is delicious.

“Best steak in town .”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This restaurant is just round the corner from my daughter's house. We've been many times I always have the fillet steak because it's the best in Phuket. You could cut it with a butter knife. It's not the fanciest of restaurants, it looks a little like a Spanish tapas bar but it's one not to miss.

“Fabulous menu”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Been going annually for years now. If you are looking for a different menu, this is the place. Fusion at its best. Fresh ingredients, Harold, the owner goes to the local markets daily. Service excellent. Prices reasonable. Pick up from Laguna available, which us great.

“We'll be back again...and again...and again”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Tatonka is a fusion restaurant that marries Asian and Western flavours to perfection. Everything on its menu is delicious, from mouth-watering appetizers to creative main courses and desserts with a twist. I always, always, end up over-eating!

Harold, the chef-owner, is Austrian and has been running Tatonka for years. I first dined there in February 2003 and have been a fan since. I'm not surprised at all that Tatonka has a faithful following from all over the world! Some, like me, go to Phuket just to eat at this restaurant. Sounds a bit far fetched, but it's true.

To avoid disappointment, contact the restaurant in advance to make sure it is open because Harold is a veritable globetrotter and takes several weeks off every year to travel.
