Booked table for 8 pm and staff pushing menus at us. We were told last orders 8.30 we ordered by 8.10. Appetisers and main courses. Main courses arrived first without rice. Soft shell crab ok. Chicken pineapple and cashews good. Then appetisers arrived! Tempura of...prawn - inedible! Think warmed up! We were still eating when they literally pushed big dirty menus under our noses to see if we wanted anything else! Very untrained staff seemed to be in a rush to close! Terrible experience but great location! Won’t be returning so many more deserving businesses of our custom!More

We enjoyed our leisurely late lunch dining experience here, driving here directly after landing at the airport. There is a lookout point next to the cafe. We had seafood dishes (the deep fried fish with sweet and sour sauce was excellent), fruit drinks and ice...desserts. Absolutely no regrets coming here. Service was good and the cost very reasonable. And we actually put our Tunk-Ka Cafe experience here well ahead of our next day dining at the recognized Raya Restaurant in Phuket Town.More

This is right up the hill on the Monkey View point. The view of the Phuket city is mind blowing. You also get to see the Big Buddha from here. If lucky, there will be a local singer performing and its fun. We ordered the...Thai Iced tea, seafood noodles - both bang for the buck. The Iced tea tasted authentic. The path leading to the restaurant is also soulful.More

I found this cafe listed on an obscure website and chose to go because it was on the way to the Upside Down House. It was a complete delight. The views are great - we visited in the daytime but I can imagine the night...time views are spectacular. The cafe itself is really nice, perched on stilts on the side of a steep hill, a little bit quirky and fun. Food was good with great dessert and ice cream choices (although we were told the kitchen was about to close after lunch). This would be my go-to meetup place with friends if I lived in Phuket. You do need a car to get here though.More

I have been so many times in Tun-ka Cafe over the years that I lost count. I have been there for group dinners with colleagues and with family and friends for casual gatherings. Each and every time, everything has been simply fantastic and amazingly consistent....Of course there is the location and the breathtaking views over the east and west coasts being on the top of a hill but more importantly the warm welcome, the impeccable (casual) service, the amazing food choice, the excellent food quality and authenticity. If you love genuine Thai cuisine, don't look further. Don't miss the Tom Ka Gai (I have never eaten a better one in Thailand), the Yam Won Sen seafood (seafood with angel hair noodles), the squids with garlic and pepper, any kind of fish and Thai curry. Food and drinks are very reasonably priced. Expect the place to be busy over weekends with lots of Thai people which is of course a great sign. I always go there for dinner but do not hesitate to visit it at lunch time if you want to take great pictures of the island, the view is amazing.More

The view is the best. The food here is local cuisine. The price is reasonable. It is relatively cheap compared to other place in phuket. Save room for dessert too.

Tunk-ka Cafe is perched close to the top of the hill, amidst lush forest. The price you pay for the beautiful green location is that it does bring with it some crawling friends! The menu is large - lots of choice of tasty dishes. Good...quality food, although the staff brought out my curry and rice I ordered just moments after the appetiser, which seemed like an unfortunate sequencing error. The view and setting is the real selling point - a visit to this cafe is therefore recommended.More

Nice view on Phuket Town at night, vast choice of food, large portions and affordable prices despite the "touristy" place. Staff's english is not very good. Many mosquitoes, bring the repellent!

Very good, as always, also in these difficult days (21st of May 2020, with the restaurants just opened after the easing of Phuket lockdown). We had a beatiful dinner, but we have mostly appreciated all the new measures for the coronavirus: At the entrance a...basin to wash the hands, the usal temperature check, a sanification spot through which the customers pass, cutlery in a sealed bag , disposable table mats, evrybody with mask, all the plates arriving covered by the kitchen and so on. We saw an attention towards the hygiene and safety at the top, they really take care of their customers and we felt completely relaxed and safe !!!!More

We took Grab from Patong for around 400+ THB just to reach the place, and the food was really great. We had the pineapple fried rice, Pandan chicken with garlic, tom yum soup and morning glory stir-fry amidst a very nice setting (with the Phuket...town lights way down below). The bill for 2 pax amounted to 670 THB for the fantastic meal. The place was also quite crowded with locals so there might be a slight wait before being seated. We took another Grab ride down to Chillva Market for around 300 THB.More
