Went for drinks there, we liked the decor and atmosphere. Did not eat but saw variety of food and lots of specials offered on the board. Expect to spend a bit more than average, but food must be good as people come there regularly. Definitely visit this place when you stay locally.

Great atmosphere good advice and gray food. Everything is fresh and tasty. If you like tuna Tatar then you'll love theirs. A family run business with Husband and Wife team. Kid friendly

We've visited Phuket many times, and eaten at Rum Jungle about 4-5 times during our last couple of trips. On every occasion the food choices have been plentiful (a large chalkboard hangs in the main dining area with 'Specials' which are regularly updated), and the prices are reasonable for the quantity and quality of what is presented. The Aussie Chef/Owner... More

We really enjoyed the Australian beef and lamb dishes that we recently had there but as the prices were higher than typical Thai food, this is not a place we would frequent often. Don't get me wrong as the food was very good; compliments to the chef!! The drink prices were also high; can never understand how a restaurant can... More

I had driven past so many times and missed this delightful restaurant in Naiharn Nice jungle ambiance plus a bar with sofa where you can chill out. Interesting menu with a lot of daily specials. Very tasteful European food with Thai twists. Prices reasonable. Homemade ice cream, but order it early as it is popular and runs out. Will definately... More

The chicken Parma is enormous and the best I've had in phuket. Can't wait too come back. The owner/chef is an excellent host even stopping to have a chat. Service is fast and you are made to feel like you are old friends. Food is outstanding highly recommend it do not miss.

Was there with my family. My dish tasted like pure cinnamon, the pork of my son was salty.
