Description: THE 9th FLOOR restaurant & barHeavenly food served by angelsTHE 9th FLOOR on the top floor of the Sky Inn Condotel off Rat-U-Thit Road in Patong is a hidden treasure dedicated to the enjoyment of fine food, with an excellent wine cellar, beautiful, well-trained waitresses and a warm, elegant ambience and décor reminiscent of a sophisticated members’ club.The 9th Floor is one of the most popular open air restaurant in Phuket and it’s no exaggeration to say that the excellence of its food matches the loftiness of its location.The menu features an eclectic award-winning selection of Mediterranean, Alpine and Thai dishes all of which use the finest local and imported ingredients and are cooked and served to perfection. The drinks list and wine cellar are comprehensive with a great choice of both European and New World classics, plus plenty of up-and-coming labels from the developing wine regions.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

The Restaurant is situated on the top floor of a run down condo complex, so basically not a problem to find parking space but rats a crossing your way to the entrance lobby which isn't really inviting, as the elevators are.

Luckily it's different, once you arrive at the entrance of the place itself. The Restaurant has a nice view over Patong, therefor any further decoration would be unnecessary. Unfortunately there are far too many tables filling the room. I can understand that space is precious and in high season every seat must make money, but this kills any romantic dining atmosphere, when the place is filled up, noise level is just too high.

When booking the table I have been assured that this would be by the window, unfortunately it wasn't. The menu offers a wide choice, however it is not available in Thai language, so my partner couldn't read it ( we are still in Thailand…). We ended up ordering starters, entrees and dessert and the quality varied quite remarkable. Whilst starters were ok, entrees were not better than average, dessert had fast food quality. Staff was very attentive, though.

“Amazing views, amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Absolutely an amazing restaurant and food. Lots of variety from lamb shanks to pasta to steaks. Staff were very attentive and made sure we had a great time. The views looked over all of patong beach. More expensive then other restaurants in patong but very worth it. We had, 2 starters, pasta and lamb shank, bread basket, 3 beers and 2 diet cokes and the bill came to 2700 thb.

A must when in Patong.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The 9th Floor is an essential dining experience while in Patong. Do not be discouraged by other reviews overstating the 'grimy' entrance; as I genuinely have no idea what they are referring to.

The views are great, as you can see virtually all of Patong, and the atmosphere and service are excellent. My main course was the best meal I had in my visit, and one of the best I've ever had.

In the context of Patong, The 9th Floor is relatively expensive, but for what you receive, it is incredibly cheap. A perfect venue for a romantic dinner, or to finish the trip.

“Fabulous Food/Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

The entrance to this restaurant is via a 'less-than'encouraging' elevator journey up to, the ninth floor.

However, when the elevator opens, you are transported into a completely different environment.

Attentive staff, cosy ambiance, a very wide/varied food menu and of course a great selection of wines.

All told a very, very pleasant evening and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that would like Patong's version of 'finer dining' without having to pay obscene prices for the privilege of doing so.

We would most certainly go back again.
