“what a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

We were staying in Kamala and had heard about Taste. Rained all day and nearly didnt make it. Glad we did, got there late afternoon, jumped out of the taxi and said to the nice young American chap are you open for cocktails and food? Sure are he said, it's happy hour and you can eat any time you like! Perfect start! Great cocktails to start (99 THB each), then two courses each, fantastic food, best of our whole Thai trip. Particularly liked the BBQ duck salad starter. This would have to be one of the best eateries in Phuket. 4 cocktails, one beer, one bottle of wine, four dishes and a coffee about $150 Aussie all up, but you can bring this down by $60 if you exclude the wine. Good luck Taste, you made our night.

“Beautiful restaurant by the beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2010

This place had really good food and stands out as the best restaurant in the dozen or so on the strip. It was quiet when we went, but Taste was by far the busiest.
Food was very good quality, nice decor and great service.
2 x courses for 2 people, 2 x cocktails and 2 x beers came to £40 GBP odd. 2000 Baht or so.
Good value for safe, clean, tasty food at a great location.
Must try!!
Btw, hot means HOT!! Chilli and garlic prawns was a taste overload, not for the fainthearted.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2010

We ate at taste on our 1st night!!! The food was excellent and the service was very professional...On the 2nd night we ate in Paton which was awful...3rd and final night we decided to go to PLA. After waiting around for 25 mins without even taking our drinks orders we decided to head back to Taste. Within 2 mins we had a drink infront of us and again had a fantastic meal...

“Excellent location, food & romantic atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2010

The food was great, the wait staff friendly and efficient, the maitre'd was always checking on everyone to make sure they were ok & had what they needed. We both ordered appetizer, main and dessert and all 3 dishes were excellent quality. They have an "indoor" seating area (open to the road) as well as the more popular tables & chairs actually on the beach itself - it's novel having dinner with your toes in the sand! Would definitely recommend here for dinner, if we had been staying longer we would have gone back for sure!

“Dependable for great food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2010

We've lost count as to how many times we have dined at Taste. It is a standard recommendation we make to all our friends and visitors to the Surin & Bangtao area.
