Too Gap Kao - ตู้กับข้าว

Another favourite, not for setting, or for view, but for it's extensive menu!

Situated in Phuket Old Town in PhangNga Road just opposite the On On Hotel, Too Gap Kao has become a very popular dining spot with trendy Thais inc TV stars and musicians, which is usually a good sign that the food will be good!

The interior is colonial style with marble tables and several old photos of Phuket. I'm not a great lover of air conditioning and tend to like garden or beach side restaurants so the food was really the deciding factor for me.

I'm always happier ordering seafood or fish in a restaurant that really has a good turnover of customers so as to be sure of fresh ingredients and this place was busy! There are lots of Thai favourites as well as local Phuket dishes to choose from, big portions and (at least for what we ordered) none of those tiny servings covered with squiggles of sauce that look great but leave you starving. The staff are friendly and despite the number of people service is relatively quick.

As far as I know they are open everyday from 11am to late and I would recommend booking a table before you go, so call them on 076 6088888.
