Dibuk has a timeless air and is not obsessed by trends.

2007: Restaurant of the Year Award

Saturday, December 29, 2007
Restaurant of the Year 2007
Dibuk Restaurant in Phuket City was chosen because of its blend of character and taste. One important criteria for judges was value. Few restaurants match Dibuk in this regard. As the winner for 2007, Dibuk is automatically excluded from next year's judging.

Telephone: 076 258148

Open: 11am-11pm daily

Address: 69 Dibuk Road, Phuket City

Style: French and Thai. A separate menu is offered for each.

Price range: Very reasonable cost for good-quality Thai food. A curry will set you back between 90 and 130 baht. If French is your penchant, you will pay a little more. Le Filet Mignon de Boeuf, 300 baht, Le Civet de Lapin, 320 baht.

Specialty: Good food from Asia and Europe

What Phuketwan says: We have been consistently impressed with Dibuk. The place has the slightly faded air of the colonial past that Phuket never had. Some of the paint peeling may even be not just for effect. The lighting is subdued, antique fans churn, the waiting staff is obliging, the bread is fresh and the prices are excellent. It's the kind of anytime eatery where a leading local publisher can lunch alone behind a copy of Time magazine while the phuketwan team celebrate their soft launch in another part of the restaurant. At night, a great idea for dinner is to order the French starters and mix and share the way you would share Thai food. The house wine is fine and the specials board usually contains some interesting ideas. Today we spotted Filet de Crocodile. Here's hoping it was not the smallish reptile that was recently caught at a leading resort. The resort loves its wildlife. But crocodiles? No thank you. Plenty of broccoli, please, with that.

How to find it: Dibuk lies among the sweet Sino-Portuguese shophouses in the old town stretch.

Parking: Usually no problems on the street. It's a quiet part of Phuket City.
