Top choice fusion

in Phuket Town

Fabulous fusion and fine wines, courtesy of top Phuket chef-owner Noi Tammasak, are the draw at this converted house just south of the Old Town. Spicy eggplant salads, sweet-basil Shanghai noodles, braised-beef-cheek massaman and grilled-lemongrass lamb chops with papaya salsa are just some of the highlights. A new cocktail bar and Thai-tapas menu were in the works at the time of research.

Tables are sprinkled across the romantically lit house, garden and wraparound porch. Don't miss the flamed mango with sticky rice and black-sesame ice cream.
