If you love food, you will love Phuket. There are restaurants to suit every taste serving a huge selection of western and Asian food. The variety of cuisine and dining experiences is one of the major attractions of the island. You can eat breakfast at your hotel, lunch at a local noodle stall by the roadside, and have dinner with fine wines in a sophisticated air-conditioned restaurant.
Fancy a snack in between? One of the wonderful characteristics of Thailand is the reverence for food and eating, so you can eat at almost any time of the day. Tropical fruit, banana fritters, barbecue chicken and sticky rice? It's all here... While Thai food is renowned world-wide for its wonderful flavours and fresh ingredients, Phuket is especially famous for its seafood, and, you don't have to empty your bank account to enjoy the most sumptuous of dishes.
Phuket, already well known for its fresh succulent seafood, is rapidly gaining a reputation as a great place to find excellent Thai and international food in some very picturesque venues. You can find a range from Italian to Middle Eastern to Indian and Japanese. In addition, wine has become readily available in Phuket, with some local restaurants now featuring creditable wine cellars. Places to eat vary from roadside noodle stalls, air-conditioned restaurants, open air restaurants with great views, or fast food outlets. You won't go hungry!
