How did Kan Eang @pier Restaurant start?

The restaurant found its beginnings as a grocery store opened by Mr. Chamnan Pachantabutr, affectionately known as Khun Daeng, approximately 40 years ago. He was and still is close to the local fishermen who are based at Chalong Pier. During those early days they began to have regular friendly gatherings near his store, grilling the fish they caught and cooking other original recipes. Once sold commercially, these unique dishes quickly grew in popularity and are still mainstays on the restaurant’s menu today.

PachantabutrIn 2007, major renovations were initiated to meet increasing demand as well as prepare for the next generation within the Pachantabutr family. Prior to this, the restaurant was officially known as Kan Eang, but the name was altered to favor the modern and stylish look you see there today.

What was the incentive behind opening the VSET Restaurant?

Feeling that they were ready to expand into other areas of the restaurant market, the Pachantabutrs decided their first step would be to open a small but intimate venue serving the best western cuisine Phuket has to offer. To help them achieve this, they were joined by Chef Ronnie Macuja, a culinary expert Khun Wallee has known for over ten years. Together they conceived VSET, a beautiful restaurant found attached to Kan Eang @pier.

Patak Villa

How did you start Patak Villa?

It is common knownledge that real estate is one of Phuket’s most prosperous business sectors, and having an established history and local contacts is very useful. With this in mind, the family started small and elected to build in the Chalong area, which is growing as a Phuket hotspot. Since 2003, Patak Villa has grown into a three phase housing complex with over 300 units in total, serving both residential and commercial purposes. Their highest priorities have always been to offer a great location alongside value in each product.

Mon manages the daily operations of Patak Villa. His parents have allowed him to tackle problems and new tasks on his own as it is the best way to learn. However, when he seeks advice, they do not hesitate in assisting him and passing on their own experience. With his youthful approach, Mon has done a remarkable job, introducing new housing designs for the Premium Patak Villa Townhomes that have been accepted and appreciated by new residents.

May has been involved in accounting for both Kan Eang @pier and Patak Villa for some time. Her husband, Best, is the newest addition to the family and also plays an integral role in the management of the restaurants’

Mann has his sights set firmly on taking Kan Eang @pier into the future. He is currently in his third and final year of studying International Restaurant Management in Australia. There is no doubt he enjoys the dining industry very much and upon his return he will explore every aspect of the business with the aim of eventually guiding one of Phuket’s most loved dining establishments to new heights.
