Uptown Restaurant (Phuket Town)
Uptown is a popular lunch spot for locals, the menu is quite extensive but they specialise in noodle dishes. There were a lot of tom yum noodle dishes and other soups without noodles - we had one of these, called Kao Lao.
Uptown Restaurant is on the street corner opposite the indoor Expo market, near the old Thavorn Grand Plaza Hotel, about 400m south of the bus station. We noticed it was popular with local office staff, there was a crowd in from the nearby Kasikorn bank and a couple of families having a Saturday lunch out just like us.
Here's some of our lunch. I had a Phad Thai Hor Khai, we had drinks (ice tea, ice chocolate), kids had some fried chicken, total bill was... 270 Baht. That was for 5 dishes plus drinks. I do believe we'll be back soon!
I admit we have been a bit lazy and not really explored new places to eat recently, but it's time to try some new restaurants. There are a couple of new places up on Rang Hill for example, and the well known Dibuk restaurant in the old town. Phuket Town is the place to find more local food. Some places we like in town include ...
• Kopitiam by Wilai
• Tunk Ka Cafe
