“Excellent food, great prices, superb surroundings and well located.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Dee-Lish restaurant is superb family owned restaurant in Soi Kep-Sup, fairly close the landmark ‘Christine’s Massage’ on Thanon Rat-u-thit. Patong is awash with ‘cheap and cheerful’ restaurants with plastic chairs and tables at which you can, at some, also get some good food at low prices. At times though it’s often a pleasure to go to somewhere with a bit more style and quality and the De-Lish restaurant certainly fits the bill in this regard.

I ate there several times on a recent trip and, being a fully trained chef, I am somewhat pedantic about my food, be it local Thai, other Asian, Western or whatever. Cheap is OK, but cheap rubbish, no thanks. Dee-Lish however left me with no concerns at all, hence the multiple return visits.

The restaurant is very nicely decorated and appointed with ample seating. The open front and fans lead to the restaurant having a fresh feel it’s a place where you may certainly wish to linger over you meal either alone or with guests. It has a very well stocked and reasonable priced bar and an extensive menu serving a wide variety of food from Western, through Asian to traditional Thai and even Mexican. The staff are friendly, efficient and the kitchen provides a prompt and effective service.

As I said, we visited many times and tried different food styles on each occasion. One night we had a Thai feast and some of the memorable dishes included the steamed fish, Massaman chicken curry (absolutely superb – the best Massaman in Patong by miles IMO), somtam with crab and broccoli with clams. We also tried fresh caught crabs served with a spicy chilli based sauce, wonderful!! Another of the dishes I was very pleased with was the Mexican Fajitas. Much as I love Thai food, staying in Phuket for 3 months I did get a craving for other cuisine at times. I tend to avoid some of the more niche food styles in Patong (and have yet to find a passable, let alone good Indian restaurant there) but the Fajitas at De-Lish were superb.

Dee-Lish is now one of my favourite restaurants in Patong and I wholeheartedly recommend it. It’s well located, reasonably priced and serves great food in superb surroundings. Nothing more to ask for really ☺

“Sensational Seafood Platter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Wow. What can I say about the seafood platter for 1000tbt. A whole snapper, whole crab, 4 king prawns and a calamari squid. We chose to have snapper fried with garlic and herbs, the crab stir fried in yellow curry sauce, the prawns butterflied and grilled and the calamari stir fried in chilli and garlic. Every dish was a flavor sensation, they were extremely busy so therefore wasn't really suited to taking young children.

“Good simple Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

It started raining and we where just looking to stay dry and have a drink,
Than after watching people eating on the neighbor table we decider to eat !
Good choice! My wife had some prawns with broccoli for just BT180,
my massiman curry was excellent for a mere BT160 .. That's value for money with very good quality and very attentive service.

“Awesome Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Dee Lish restaurant is a perfect spot for absolute Thai food experience with friendly staff and good quality food. Maybe a not so fast service is the only thing you need to consider when planning to visit this restaurant.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

The deep fried Sea Bass was awesome and it is really good value. The 99 baht cocktails really top off a great little restaurant in a busy location..
