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 ☺
