Din Tai Fung First Restaurant Outside Bangkok at Jungceylon Phuket

Thailand, 30th April 2024 – Din Tai Fung, the globally acclaimed Taiwanese restaurant recognized by the prestigious Michelin Guide, proudly announces the grand opening of its inaugural Phuket

establishment. Nestled in the vibrant heart of Jungceylon, this new culinary gem welcomes diners to indulge in its signature fare, including its world-famous Xiao Long Bao (Steamed Pork Dumplings), Steamed Chicken Soup, and other delicious Taiwanese staples. Maintaining the same esteemed menu as its Bangkok locations, the restaurant also introduces an exclusive selection of beverages.

Despite its modest size, accommodating up to 100 diners, the restaurant boasts an iconic design crafted by the renowned Taiwanese architects, Song Designs Studio. Their innovative spatial approach ensures that even within the 218-square-meter space, functionality seamlessly merges with aesthetics, maximizing every inch. While this location may be one of Asia’s smallest, diners can expect a comfortable ambience and a full menu, mirroring the offerings of its Bangkok counterparts.

Pioneering Expansion into Phuket’s Culinary Scene

Having made its mark in the Thailand market since its debut in Bangkok in 2011, Din Tai Fung has consistently raised the bar and redefined the country’s dining scene. Recognizing Phuket’s status as a premier tourist destination, Din Tai Fung identified a unique opportunity for expansion. Din Tai Fung’s foray into Phuket is spearheaded by Singapore’s F&B industry leader, BreadTalk Group Limited.

Notably, there are currently no Taiwanese restaurants in Phuket, positioning Din Tai Fung as the pioneering establishment to introduce this culinary delight to the market. With an investment budget of approximately 20 million baht allocated for the development of this Jungceylon restaurant, Din Tai Fung is poised to redefine the gastronomic landscape of Phuket.

Each dish is thoughtfully crafted using fresh ingredients and unadulterated cooking styles, creating a harmonious blend of flavours that cater to discerning palates and align with the demand for healthier dining options.

Presenting each piece as a work of art to discerning diners is a testimony to their dedication of maintaining, if not exceeding, the demanding standards of this world-class brand.

Beyond the kitchen, diners can expect the same warm and friendly service upon entry to the restaurant. Orders are taken promptly to minimize waiting, so diners can enjoy the same exceptional cuisine along with the sterling service that the Taiwanese restaurant is renowned for.
