We visited Pint factory twice today!
We thought it was a fabulous find - and so close to The Book a Bed Poshtel over the carpark (on the outskirts of Old Phuket Town.) The Location has a great utilitarian design/ fit out adjoining the Lime Light Shopping Centre.
We chose the lunch set Menu and found it really lovely and excellent value.
We will be back for the Squid Ink Pasta, Caesar Salad with Berry spritza for 199 Baht each-Brilliant! Everything was top quality and very well presented.
On returning later in the afternoon we were looking forward to trying another meal set when we were told that the 'specials' finished at 5.30pm...Keep that in mind people.
Instead we had the fish and chips, clam dip with French Bread (a 'stingy' 4 croutons with a very nice, but small portion of Dip).
The staff in the evening shift lacked friendliness and customer service skills. At one stage there were 5 staff lounging around within meters of us while we were eating! Very off putting when one wants a quiet enjoyable meal. There can sometimes be a cultural difference in understanding 'personal space'-but the fact that few of them could muster a smile meant there was a distinct lack of atmosphere.
Personally there is nothing worse than watching staff look bored and leaning on furniture and the barrels throughout the eating area. None of the staff spoke very good English which made it difficult to establish information as to their opening times, recommendations etc.
In the evening we ordered a beer selection and there was no information supplied on the beers we were 'sampling'. When we asked it was very difficult to understand...why not supply a written card detailing the samples and recommended beers aligned to the samples?? Not too hard and overcomes the language barrier I would have thought.
I would definitely visit again for a cool, expansive atmosphere and great lunch-but after 5.30pm we would look for alternative venues.
and selection of local and imported beers.
