You may have come to Thailand intending to dive right into Thai cuisine. One of the world's most popular cuisines, Thai food offers a wide range of choices, and most holiday travellers want to try as many samples of this cuisine as possible in the time they are here.

But there can be too much of a good thing. At some point in your holiday, you may begin to tire of a steady diet of Thai food and begin to crave other types of cuisine. 

Luckily for you, Patong has a long list of international cuisine restaurants conveniently located in town. We've chosen five of the best restaurants based on the quality of food, service, and customer satisfaction. 

These are restaurants who go above and beyond the usual 'international' menus of spaghetti Bolognese, burgers and pizza. Instead, they focus on the cuisine they're skilled at preparing, to deliver a meal worthy of being named to our top five international cuisine restaurants list. Bon appetit!

La Gritta

La Gritta at Amari Phuket offers breathtaking views of Patong Bay while you dine on exquisitely prepared, modern Italian cuisine in an elegant, modern décor dining room. The restaurant and bar offer both indoor and outdoor seating, and it's one of the trendiest places to eat in Patong.

Chef de Cuisine Ms Patrizia Battolu has skilfully created a menu of old favourites and fresh new flavours. Combined with La Gritta’s extensive wine list, a dinner at La Gritta is an entirely memorable experience.


Sam’s Steak & Grill

Sam's Steak & Grill goes against the trend to feature Phuket's famed seafood in every dish a restaurant offers and instead focuses on what they do best. This means succulent, juicy steaks, fine wines to accompany them and a modern and elegant atmosphere to enjoy your meal.

Sam’s is a place where beachwear is not the preferred style of attire, so singlets and flip flops are not permitted in their dining room. But if you visit them dressed properly in smart casual wear, expect an evening of steaks cooked to perfection, creative side dishes, superb wine choices and exemplary service.

Sizzle Rooftop Restaurant

On cloudless, clear nights, Sizzle is the place to go for grilled and barbecued fine meats and seafood. They feature New Zealand lamb chops and succulent Black Angus steaks that are cooked to perfection. They also feature a carefully chosen selection of the finest seafood that Phuket has to offer.

Located on the roof of Avista Hideaway, this trendy and popular restaurant among Phuket residents promises an evening of fine food and inspired cocktails in elegant surroundings.


Sultan’s Grill Authentic Turkish & Indian Cuisine

Ozan, the owner of Sultan’s Grill, is a Turkish restaurateur who learned to cook Indian as well as his own country’s cuisine. The results are Sultan’s Grill located on Thawewong Road.

They feature an extensive menu of both Turkish and Indian vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes that are authentically prepared with care and soul.

A large comfortable and unpretentious dining room means all their effort is focused on the food at Sultan’s Grill, and the rave reviews of the restaurant customers were all that was needed to ensure that the dining room is packed on most evenings.


Café de Paris

Café de Paris is one of the few French restaurants in Patong and the only one whose name is mentioned consistently as being the best. Located on a side street just a short walk up from Beach Road next to Banana Walk Shopping Mall, this unpretentious restaurant featuring a yellow and white façade offers both an air-conditioned dining room as well as tables outside.

They feature a high-quality menu of French favourites. Try the sauteed foie gras with toast as an appetiser and the lobster ravioli as a main course. The crème Brulee for dessert draws the most raves from returning customers. The attention they pay to all the dishes coming out of the kitchen is pleasantly astounding.
