Check out Phuket Town's charming new digs.

After half a decade serving its scorching Southern Thai food, Phuket Town has moved from its tiny corner shop-house on Thonglor's main drag to an altogether more charming standalone house on Thonglor Soi 4. 

Decked out with hints of Phuket Old Town's Sino-Portuguese architecture and paintings, the larger venue features two dining rooms as well as a dedicated bar that shows they now take drinks more seriously.

Flavorful Phuket recipes like fermented rice noodles with crab meat curry (B350), shrimp paste relish (B200) and beef curry (B220) remain, joined by signature cocktails like Phuket Gangster (tequila, hazelnut, orgeat, orange lime, B280) served in a paper bag with crackers, or the boozier Phuket Godfather Got Drunk (bourbon, dark rum, tequila, cinnamon, mint and ginger ale, B320).

126/2 Thonglor Soi 4, 02-714-9402. Open daily 11am-11pm. www.facebook.com/PhuketTownRestaurant
