It was our daughters birthday while we were there and they got in her favourite dinner of king prawns (Which I've never seen or tasted prawns like it) and had a birthday cake for her. The menu is...

Made a special trip to The Islander as I'd heard a whisper that it's the best English food in Phuket. Bingo.

A friendly bar, always with a warm welcome and excellent food. We ended up coming back here several times during our holiday. The Sunday roast is very good and the hospitality second to none, highly recommended.
