Enjoy a great basic style Thai cuisine in the hustle and bustle of Phuket town. Good food at fantastic local prices. With a full tummy you are ready for a couple of hours bargain shopping just across the road.

The food here is tasty and fresh, but the portion sizes aresmall: I suppose to keep the prices down.. However there is lots of choice and the chinese style soups are popular. Definitely recommended for non-westernized thai food in a westerner-freendly restaurant. It is closed on Wednesdays, and shuts around 9.00pm

Excellent food and insane value. The food was so good that words don't begin to do it justice. For our three meals, we had the ubiquitous iced tea which was just great, maybe a tad too sweet for some, but perfect for us with the sweetness of the milk and the aroma of the tea. The pork dishes were just... More

If we are shopping in that part of town, we always go to Uptown. The food is always good, portions not large, but that is reflected in the price. Friendly staff and prompt service. Good Thai food at a good price.

This is one of the best 1 dish restaurant in Phuket town. The owners and staffs are very friendly and helpful. Many selections of foods. Personally i like Tom Yum Pork Noodle here and fish wontons salads. Fried rice with shrimp paste (Kao Cook Kapi), Friend rice with Nam Prik (Kao Nam Prik Long Rua) and Padthai. Delicious and inexpensive.

This is my most favourite place in Phuket, wonderful food at even better prices. The owner Lek is fluent in English, so not much trouble in finding out what some of the dishes are and she makes certain that everyone feels welcome in her establishment

Uptown Restaurant in Phuket Town offered a vast selection of local dishes at very reasonable prices. Loads of locals eating there (always a good sign) and the atmosphere is lively and casual. It is located just outside the core centre of Phuket Town opposite the old Thavorn Grand Hotel. The walk there is fun because you pass lots of shops,... More
