Ad: Royal Paradise Hotel, Rat-U-Thit Road. Tel: 076-340-666.
Perched atop the Royal Paradise Hotel in the center of Patong’s Paradise Complex is the Royal Kitchen, a fun Chinese restaurant that has gone all out in the décor department, as you might expect to find at Paradise Complex.
The food is delightful at this Phuket restaurant. It’s definitely one of the better Chinese eateries in the area. The restaurant seats 140 and you’re treated to great views out over the rabble in Patong down below.
As far as Patong restaurants go, the Royal Kitchen is reasonably formal. It would make sense to dress smartly if you were planning to dine here. The atmosphere is laidback and calm, with a Filipino band providing the musical accompaniment for the evening.
There’s also a wine list with almost 30 labels on it. Check out the Phuket set menu for five courses of fine Chinese nosh.
Open for lunch and dinner.
