What Phuketwan says:
Every so often we feel the need to deviate. To go a bit perverse. To try something a little different, just for fun. Yes of course, we will stay faithful. Thai food we can eat forever, and probably will. But occasionally, like a som tam addict, we try to beat the fix, kick the habit. And let's face it, if being overly keen on som tam was a crime, virtually the whole of Phuket would be in jail. A friend spied Kebab House before the paint dried so we decided to rekindle a vague memory of the taste of yoghurt mixed with meat carved fresh from a roasting slab, and we're glad we did. It tastes deliciously exotic. Throw in some paprika and pita and this place, even at lunchtime with daylight streaming in, is a deviant's delight. When your chin streams with spicy yoghurt and you just don't care, you know you've entered a hidden pleasure zone, and that even more fun lies ahead. The kebab in some places has a reputation as a hangover cure, which is probably deserved. This is not to say a perfectly well-behaved person would never enjoy a dripping chin. If you must, stick to the carrot salad. But don't complain if others wrap their chompers around far more tasty items. On the day we lunched and wanted seconds, there was only chicken on the spit. Beef on Fridays. Tell us when there's lamb spinning, and we'll drop the som tam and rush straight over. Lamb, beef and chicken will eventually be available, the proprietors note, but there's no pork of any kind to be found on the premises. Takeaways? Sure.

How to find it: Heading south from Chalong Circle, slow down as the road rises for the final swing towards Rawai. Kebab House is in a shophouse row just before the turn to Friendship Beach.

Parking: Spaces out front.

Phuketwan reviewers pay for their own meals. If we don't, we tell you. A friend paid for this one.
Delightful Thai at The Yellow Door, Phuket City
Latest Phuket may be among the most expensive places in Thailand but fortunately nobody has told the person setting the prices at The Yellow Door. It's a beautiful blend of nature and good value.

Top Drop: Brasserie, Phuket City
Dining Review Phuketwan reviewers are not ones to rave yet we have to say this loudly: the Brasserie tops the best we've seen for some time and deserves to be acclaimed for setting new standards.

Phuket Mee, Mee, Mee Folk Use Their Noodles Wisely
Good Value Dining With inflation seemingly driving up the cost of almost everything, escaping Patong prices is not easy. But there is a place to eat Phuket City style at Phuket City values, just over the hill.

Sam's for That Medium-to-Rare Patong Night Out
Patong Dining The jazz is mellow and the steak sublime. And while it would be a mistake to imply there was much 'Casablanca' in a night out at Sam's, the final moments are all usually happy ones.

There's nothing like the joy of Donner grease running down the chin after a night out- as pointed out above. Its a shame that like a lot of things in Phuket its twice as expensive (and half as filling) than the ones available in Pattaya. It must be the Phuket sapechul sauce.
