“A nice comfortable restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

It has convenient location, a good range of food and drink both Thai and Western. Various tables include undercover, outdoors and hut style. The service isn't super quick, but efficient and pleasant all the same.
A few visits on different trips have provided a consistent level of quality and service. The pricing seems good value.
Im happy to go again

“Really loved the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We ate here on the first and last day of our trip. Service was friendly. Food was great! Large variety to choose from. Very cute new band of 4 young people sang and entertained really well. The best part of this place is their salad bar! Clean and fresh. We loved it! Not cheap, but good value for money!

“Its an easy place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I have been to the Tropica on many occasions and have always enjoyed my experience there. I loved the starter of mussells, in their shells with a lovely garlic sauce and topped with herbs. I suggest you try the "taste of asia" dish. Lots of flavors and as it says its a taste of Asia. Lat night my duck was slightly overcooked however the overall taste was good.
I did notice a few smokers at tables but in most of Thailand this is acceptable. It didn't affect me as they were not near me. I also suggest that if poosible get into one of the covered gazebo styled areas..its fun, you have your own fan and you are a bit away from the crowd..
They also had some live music and the girls in the band sang beautifully.

“AWFUL PLACE!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

In all our years visiting Phuket, we have never had such bland, terrible food! The setting of the restaurant is lovely but that's the only positive. 8 of us had dinner, ordering a variety of dishes, both European and Thai. Not one of them was any good. The staff were miserable and not at all friendly, which is very un-Thai-like. Avoid this place or you will be very disappointed.
