The island is famous its plentiful sea catch fish, crabs, squids, oysters, prawns and lobsters, all fresh from the Andaman Sea. However they are cooked grilled, fried, sauteed, baked, roasted or steamed in whatever style (Thai, Chinese, or Westem), the dishes you order will come out great tasting and aromatic. Seafood restaurants are everywhere in Phuket Town, Chalong Bay, Patong, Rawai, Kata, etc., as much as they are in big tourist hotels. Though seafood restaurants in general charge reasonable prices, some classy ones at major beaches serve seafood dishes with high international standard cooking, services and prices.

Visitors to Phuket should not miss the opportunity to have a taste of Phuket's many kinds of famous seafood which are always fresh and palatable. Prices are also very reasonable. Various seafood dishes are available in town and along famous beaches such as Patong, Kata, Karon, Rawai and Chalong Bay. But if you want to try the local food, mi sapam, misua (kinds of Chinese noodles), Khanom chin (Thai rice noodles with curry soup and vegetables), ho mok(steamed curried fish), kaeng luang and namphrik kung siap are recommendable.

Phuket has a number of foods different in character and flavour from those of other areas in Thailand. The international character of the island, however, with so many different restaurants catering to a multitude of tastes, makes it difficult for non-Thais to identify Phuket cuisine. Below is a list of dishes and shops where they can be sampled.
