Diners eating among the greenery at The Yellow Door in Phuket City

Delightful Thai at The Yellow Door, Phuket City

Thursday, March 17, 2011
The Yellow Door, Phuket City

Open: For dinner from 5.30pm each evening.

Address: Rat-U-Tit Hongyok, Samkong, Phuket City

Style: Thai

Price range: Excellent value. Fried rice with pork or chicken (35 baht) fried rice with shrimp/squid/fish (45 baht) spicy vermicelli with vietnamese sausage salad (70 baht) spicy fried egg salad (50 baht) ice lemon tea (25 baht) ice coffee (15 baht).

Specialties: Local southern food.

What Phuketwan says:
We watched the Yellow Door being built among the trees, very carefully. Now it has proven to be as nature-friendly as it seemed. There may be better value restaurants around despite the rush on Phuket for profit at the expense of good vaule. If there are, we'd like to find them. The creators of this small delight began just down the same road by putting up an awning over a small plot of land. These days, the restaurant attracts young people from all over the district. The Yellow Door sells alcohol, but the prices remain a joy to behold. There's an English menu and enough Western food to keep anyone happy, and it's a pleasure to find a place where nature is clearly appreciated. The distressed look of preloved timber planking and white-painted wooden furniture, together with several distinct decking zones, has made the Yellow Door appealing to both families and groups of friends. What's worth remembering is that the food comes ped in southern style, so you may need to throttle back a bit when you order. This place is a genuine delight, and increasingly popular as the word spreads about the food.

How to find it: Rat-U-Tit Hongyok is the road that runs alongside Bangkok Hospital Phuket in Phuket City, heading towards Rang Hill. The Yellow Door can be found close to another good local restaurant, Mae Porn Seafood.

Parking: Plenty of space along the road.

Hilltop or Hip-Hop? No Haven at Restaurant
Restaurant of the Week The Breeze has a fine location on Rang Hill in Phuket City but instead of leaving the music to the birds and the crickets, the restaurant adds hilltop hip hop.

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.

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.

Just went this evening... had not intended to eat there.. we were driving up to Rang Hill and went past, then I remembered this page on Phuket Wan.. so we went in to check the menu. Good food - we had 7 different dishes + drinks, total bill 500 Baht. That was for 2 adults and 2 kids.
