[Restaurant Review]

One of Phuket’s most distinguished social events recently saw local members of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and sundry gourmet enthusiasts gather July 25th at one of the island’s most iconic restaurants

Oct-Nov 13

Patong’s 9th Floor The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is the oldest and most prestigious international gastronomic society, dedicated to promoting the finest dining, imbibing and camaraderie centered on the pleasures of the table. There are members in more than one hundred countries in all parts of the world, but this particular gourmet supper had the added attraction that the food and wines were served by the 9th Floor’s lovely coterie of waitresses in their gorgeous full-length evening gowns. The evening was led by Peter Smith, current local chapter Chair of the society, and most ably organized by the 9th Floor’s Swiss-born Manager Thomas Brack and Executive Chef Wara Pakdeevirote, who explained and presented each of the evening’s superb dishes.

Superb Chaîne Dinner Served by Angels

Chef Wara enjoyed a glittering international career prior to settling at 9th Floor and has spent the last seven years delighting the restaurant’s many enthusiastic regulars and visitors while winning many culinary awards in the process. The evening’s gormandizing was themed “The Ambiance of Patong Bay” and so it was no surprise to enjoy local lobster with zucchini, Mozzarella, Pimentos and Parma ham, followed by an entree of venison Carpaccio and a chilled avocado and prawn soup with Mango coulis. The local seafood thematic continued with Ravioli of crab fried in foie gras oil and cheese mushrooms flavored with lobster jus. The Plat Prinzipal of roasted

veal tenderloin with Morel cream, vert Mashed, sweet corn and baby carrots left no-one in any doubt that they were being treated to a meal that they would long remember. The evening’s pairing of wines and champagne from the restaurant’s extensive cellar was superb embracing French, Italian, German, Spanish and Australian vintages. As the evening drifted happily onward over the Fromage and dessert it was easy to feel that one had been magically transported to an enchanted realm high above the darkened decadence of Patong....a realm where Heavenly Food really was being Served by Angels!


Kan Eang@pier | Chalong Bay | Tel: 076 381 212 |

[Restaurant Review]

Oct-Nov 13

Kan Eang@Pier, well known by locals and previously called Kan Eang 1, has for almost 40 years now remained an island favorite. Kan Eang @Pier’s outdoor terrace stretches out under the shades of Sea Almond trees, affording panoramic views of Chalong Bay and beyond. The seating is set up in a casual environment, out in the open and next to the sea; and it is easily adapted to any tailor-made gourmet moments from small birthday parties to large banquettes. It’s a very trendy and busy place in the evening, but the waitstaff are lovely and warm even though it can take some time to go through their massive selections including local dishes and international cuisine. It is worth trying Phuket local specialties to experience the real heart and soul

Restaurant Preview  24

of the island. One of the highly recommended dishes is crab curry with white vermicelli noodles. This yellow curry is really local Phuket style and has the subtle flavor of turmeric and Cha-Plu leaves that creates a spicy blend with mild coconut milk flavor plus sweet from the fresh crab meat – making an outstanding result. Nam Prik Goong Sieb (shrimp paste with sun-dried shrimp) is another excellent choice. This should be call yam of the Andaman as full-flavored shrimp paste comes together with plenty of crispy sun-dried shrimp and fresh vegetables. Warning – it is a zingy wake-up call!

Kan Eang@Pier A diamond in the Chalong dining scene

If you are a seafood lover, this is your heaven. Freshly caught seafood is delivered daily by local fishermen so that you can be sure that your fish is extremely fresh. Simple yet amazing Kan Eang @Pier barbecued seafood is grilled over burning coconut husks, unlike other places that use charcoal. You may select lobster live from the tank and order it for your sushi. Cave man fare of sorts and simplicity at its best, but there are also plenty of options for more fancy seafood dishes. There’s a wonderful drinks selection including wine from around the world. Be sure to check their cocktail lists.

Keep in mind Baybar, a special part of the restaurant. It is a smart and elegant venue. Its private air-conditioned setting is perfect for meetings and conversations during the day and pre-dinner drinks, opening from 11am until 1am. It can be condoned off for a group up to 30 guests. Another venue yet mentioned is K1 Kaffe operating from 6:30am. It is decorated to offer a homelike atmosphere with rattan furniture. The place is a charming mix of calm and commotion one can love about a coffee house serving American style breakfasts, homemade pastries, cakes and ice cream. Karaoke entertainment is also available.


Lai Mai Restaurant | Patong Beach | Tel: 076 292 956-9 |

Oct-Nov 13

Located on the beach road of Patong Beach, one of the most vibrant beaches in Thailand, Baan Lai Mai is just a few meters away from the white sands and water. The restaurant is a good choice for refreshing or relaxation after you have strolled along the beach, swimming or sunbathing. Lai Mai offers a spacious dining area with more than a hundred of seats available both outdoor and in the building under the roof. It is totally open air. With the newly completed renovation, regular guests will be surprised by the modern stylish look. The colorful paintings and artful decoration add some interesting highlights to

the area. The restaurant serves a wide selection of Thai and international seafood dishes. A revolution has also happened within the kitchen. Lai Mai Restaurant is now helmed by Executive Chef Chenphop Saengchootoh who has decades of experience in the culinary field. He brings new recommendations for you to savor for the coming season. Beef Roll Baan Lai Mai is worth a try. A premium meat stuffed with bacon, zucchini, and some spices is grilled and slowly cooked in brandy sauce served with mashed potatoes and variety of fresh vegetables to make the dish a nutritious choice.

Lai Mai Restaurant

Another new dish is the creative combination of salmon and pork fillet named ‘Sea and Tender’. Grilled large salmon fillet on the top of grilled pork fillet fused with wine and salt, served with peppermint sauce. The salmon fillet is perfectly succulent with health benefits while pork meat is flavorful. It is tender and delicious with every bite. Both are a perfect combination, representative of sea and land. Lai Mai Restaurant bar is a good spot for anyone to sit and chill. It serves eclectic beers, liquors and cocktails. Some of the favorites include an after dinner cocktail, the green ‘Grasshopper’ which is the blend of crème de cacao, crème de

menthe and fresh cream. Or you may try sipping a Pina Colada and chill with the gorgeous mix of white rum, pineapple juice and coconut milk. The restaurant becomes more energetic after sunset. So if you are looking for a place to boost up your appetite and make new friends, Lai Mai is the place. You will be entertained by a live band every day from 6:30pm until late except on Thursday which is reserved for a talented diva performance. Lai Mai Restaurant opens from 11:00am to 1am.


Sawasdee Thai Cuisine | Karon Beach | Tel: 076 330 979 |

[Restaurant Review]

Sawasdee Thai Cuisine is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Phuket, offering authentic Thai cuisine in elegant and peaceful surroundings in Kata Beach. Through Sawasdee Village’s lobby, the lush walkway leads you to a wooden Northern Thai architecture inspired dining pavilion where you can admire every little aspect that built this restaurant. The area is artfully filled with charming décor items and wooden furniture in neutral and warm tones that give a mild yet graceful dining atmosphere. The water fountains and ponds, carved elephants and gold painting on the pillars magnify the meticulous Thai-ness.

It glows and looks more gorgeous with the prefect lighting in the evening. A dining experience here is more than a gastronomic adventure. The restaurant serves all day dining from 6am to 11pm. An experienced chef and friendly staff make sure your dining will be an unforgettable experience. They offer you a comprehensive list of all-time favorites and some seafood dishes. Fresh and quality ingredients are guaranteed. Kick-start with hot hors d’oeuvres to boost your appetite. The combination includes satay, fish and shrimp cakes, and golden bags served with four different dips. Another recommended dish is Goong Sarong, an excellent choice for everyone in the family.

Sawasdee Thai Cuisine

Delectable and Elegant Thai Dining Experience

An all-time favorite, Tom Yum Goong is another dish worth a try here. Other selections to go with fragrant jasmine rice include varieties of Thai curries such as famous Chicken Massaman, Panaeng or Green Curry. Tom Kha Gai (Chicken Coconut Soup) is recommended as an introduction to Thai food as its taste is mild and not too spicy to start with. Spicy fish herb salad is savory, aromatic with various Thai herbs. The fish fillet is tender yet sweet because of its freshness. It becomes a flavorful bite when eaten with sour-sweet-spicy sauce.

Seafood lovers can try Pla Nung Manow, a whole steamed white sea bass with a tangy lime and garlic sauce. The dish is simply delicious, refreshing and healthy. Theme night buffets are served occasionally at the nearby Al Majlis, which is great place to get together with your friends. Theme dinners can be also arranged occasionally. Please check for more information with the hotel. For a quick lunch, an à la carte menu is also available. Pad Thai is always a good choice and never fails to meet your expectation. Be sure to visit soon!
