Over 5.3 million people travel to Phuket each year to experience its white sandy beaches, stunning mountain ranges, and of course, local food scene. This popular and much-loved island has a great selection of dining options, so we’ve compiled our top picks for Patong beach restaurants so you can experience the real heart and soul of the island’s local food culture.
Honest, social, and local. These are the three main concepts behind Butcher’s Garden, offering a farm-to-table approach where ingredients are locally sourced and you can even hand-pick the ingredients you want. You can’t go wrong with their wagyu burger, which uses locally-cured meat from their butchery. Their menu boasts a wide range of both Thai and Western-style dishes, including craft burgers, local Phuket specialties, and of course, the freshest seafood. However, guests come here for the amazingly juicy and high-quality steaks by Chef Morten and his team. Don’t forget to order your favorite bottle of wine while you’re at it – they have a fantastic wine shop to pair with your customized entrees. We highly recommend dining at Butcher’s Garden inside Hotel Indigo, one of the best Patong beach restaurants in the area.
