Kantok Restaurant @ Burasari Resort, Phuket

Dining-Area

Kantok restaurant at Burasari Resort will awe you with its lush gardens, open kitchen concept and tranquil water features. Their prices are understandbly higher given the classy settings of the restaurant, and is about 3-4 times more expensive than the hole-in-the-wall places. If a clean and relaxed dining environment is what you are looking for in Patong, Kantok should be on top of your list.

Water-Feature

The extensive menu features mainly Thai dishes along with a few unique ones such as Red Duck Curry. Food wise, everything tasted pretty good with healthy portions and they are nicely presented. The only downside about Kantok is the slow kitchen service because the dishes took considerably long to arrive despite us being the only customers there.

Street Food @ Open Air Food Bazaar, Patong Promenade Plaza

The first thing we did after landing on Phuket was to look for food. There are many restaurants nearby our hotel alright but our sights were set on this open air food bazaar instead. It was located next to the Patong Promenade Plaza and there were easily twenty to thirty stalls, albeit some serve the same dishes.

Phuket-Night-Market
Grilled-River-Prawns

Grilled river prawns should be the most delicious dish we had, they are so fresh! Anyway, if you are wondering why the prawns always come out perfect, it’s because they actually boil them first before placing them on the grill. The grilling takes maybe only a minute or so on each side just for the extra aroma so the flesh is always juicy and succulent.

The KEE Resort & Spa @ Patong, Phuket

Located directly adjacent to the rowdy and happening Bangla Road, The KEE Resort & Spa is a trendy hotel at Patong that offers a clean and modern experience to couple and family travellers alike. The hotel’s design is influenced by a Sino-Portugese architecture which is unique in Thailand but familiar to us, as it bears resemblance to the early Malaccan and Penang settlements.

Standard-Pool-View-Room

The room type we got was the Deluxe Pool View. With a size of 40 sqm, it has the perfect space to accommodate two adults comfortably. Most of the amenities in the room are pretty standard and satisfies the expectations of a medium range hotel. The room’s bright and vibrant colours have a cheerful vibe that perks your mood.

Central-Lighting-Control

Next to the bed is a central digital panel that controls all the lightings in the room.

Internet-TV

But what’s really interesting to me is the smart tv which could be used to enjoy satelite tv, movies on demand, music and get connected to the Internet. A set of wireless keyboard and mouse is provided as the navigation tool so you could actually browse the web from the comfort of the bed. If you prefer your own devices the complimentary WiFi’s connection is reliable and the speed is quite fast too.

No.6 Restaurant @ Patong, Phuket

The Patong beach area is a tourist hub by purpose, so authentic local Thai food is pretty hard to come by. Even the locals would shake their heads when you ask them for recommendations.
Among all the touristy restaurants along Prabaramee Road, the No.6 Restaurant could be the busiest of them all (another equally famous one is the No. 9 restaurant) and a queue forms outside the small establishment at night. This is a rare sight in Phuket and it’s a testament to the popularity of this restaurant, which owes much to the many great reviews on TripAdvisor.

Special-Fried-Noodle

Special Fried Yellow Noodle – decent at best, a long short from the best one we had in Bali.

Tom-Kha-Talay

Tom Kha Talay (Coconut seafood soup) – this was the best dish of the meal. The seafood given includes prawn, crab, squid and fish and all of them infused the milky soup with a fresh and sweet flavor.
