Uptown Restaurant in Phuket Town offered a vast selection of local dishes at very reasonable prices. Loads of locals eating there (always a good sign) and the atmosphere is lively and casual. It is located just outside the core centre of Phuket Town opposite the old Thavorn Grand Hotel. The walk there is fun because you pass lots of shops,... More

We found this through the Lonely Planet. The food was delicious. The menu had pleanty of choice and included some unusual items. The food was well presented but portions were small but we had ordered 3 dishes between 2 of us as we wanted to try things and this was enough for us. The wait staff were friendly but not... More

I live in Phuket Town and I've been to this restaurant many time. I've never been disappointed in the food. They have a tremendous variety of authentic Thai dishes. They have wonderful fruit smoothies. The staff vary greatly in friendliness, attitude and efficiency. They are always busy, so I don't expect a constant smile and flawless service. The location is...

This restaurant offers nice Thai food at very good prices. Most of the dishes cost less than 100 THB and you can have a large choice of Thai food. I have tried many of them and I have never been disappointed. This place is located in the heart of Phuket Town, near all the shopping and many other restaurants.

We accidently found Uptown as we were walking by around dinner time. The place doesn't look like anything special but we figured it looked good enough for a mid-week evening meal :-) The menu consists of 50ish smaller dishes, all priced very reasonably. The food was tasty and because of the portion sizes/prices it is a wonderful place to try... More

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years, usually when we go to the Expo Markets in Phuket Town. The Thai meals are honest and cheap. The interior of the restaurant is always spotless and the staff are really friendly. We enjoyed our Watermelon ice drinks on arrival and a great range of drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic...

Extensive menu, cheap, tasty, no frills. If you're passing then drop in. I wouldn't make a special journey though.
