“A great find just outside Laguna resort..try it!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We found the small Corner Restaurant on trusted TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. This relatively new establishment is very nice indeed, and quite different to most around it. Very modern decor and an interesting menu meant we had a very nice evening. We had mainly Thai food, which was fresh and in large portions. Sweet and sour fish was very good, as was Chicken Massaman curry. Our host was very friendly and attentive, and we will be returning here. In this area this is a great find.

“Excellent food and atmosphere”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

I have been to this restaurant many times the food is of the highest quality, the service is attentive and friendly. It is also a relaxing place to sit and have a glass of wine and take a break. The owners are Thai & German who make you fell most welcome and nothing is an issue with any request. The restaurant gives a very warm feeling and is the cleanest I have ever seen. I was lucky enough to be given tour of kitchen which is immaculate. Most enjoyable experience highly recommend.

“Great food - we recommend a visit!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We've dined in this restaurant with our family of five during our stay in this area. We went on a Thursday night and enjoyed the buffet which I'd highly recommend.

This is a fantastic little restaurant. The food is lovely, the service is attentive and the staff are friendly. It's also very clean and inviting with nice ambience - its great to dine somewhere modern in Phuket for once! The food is excellent and very reasonably priced - what more could you want? At the time of writing this we have another week in Phuket before we leave and will definitely return.

Highly recommended.

Dear Julia & Tim,

Thank you very much for dining with us @ The Corner, as well as for your kind review.

If I remember well, you told me that you found us here on Tripadvisor. I am possitively suprised to learn that so many of our guests, who are here on holidays, visit us because of our reviews.

Considered the choice of restaurants in the area, we really appreciate the efforts from each and everyone - in return, we'll continue to do our very best to satisfy every customer.

I wish both of you all the best and hope to welcome you again soon.

Best regards

“Excellent food, well worth a return visit”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Not the best atmosphere compared with some of the other local restaurants but the food is excellent . Functional and very good in clean, though perhaps clinical surroundings.

It passes the chicken satay test and the fresh version of the spring rolls are very good and different.

We went a bit western on the main courses with rack of lamb ( not a rack but three separate NZ lamb cutlets) and a very good pork escalope with bacon and cheese, nice crisp, fresh salad and crinkle cut fries, my favourite frozen version. Wife had spicy chicken salad (medium) which was so tasty and very enjoyable, with a solid spicy kick.

Service was superb, clearly well trained compared with others and very attentive without being annoying. Not busy though, so allowed more attention. Plenty of attention from the German owner to ensure we were ok. He persuaded me to have the Swiss chocolate mousse for dessert that the staff had frozen instead of chilled, so it was more like ice cream but nonetheless was superb. A complimentary espresso was accepted as compensation (not necessary!) and finally a complimentary limoncello for the three of us.

Running out of time but well worth a return visit. The quality of the food is high but they will not be able to make this venue atmospheric or romantic, purely high quality German efficiency and quality. A Volkswagen/Audi experience.

Recommended for a visit. Excellent value for money. Almost 5*.

Dear Sir/Glitch33,

Thank you very much for your recent visit to 'The Corner" and your time in reviewing our restaurant with such kind, yet critical words. We appreciate your overall positive feedback and comments which will help us to optimize our standards, F&B quality, level of customer service and hygiene.

We’ve just recently opened back in July 2013 and, thus, are a “newcomer” or as others like put it “a new kid on the block”.
Despite the fact that we have outdoor seating available, we are not an open-air restaurant. This makes it slightly difficult to create the typical local, tropical & warm, sticky feeling in an indoor, yet air-conditioned environment.

Everything takes time and in my opinion, a restaurant gains charm and flair over the years - once many drinks have been spilled by delighted customers (and clumsy waiters) and the furniture has been scratched in culinary euphoria.
A few more weeks of training down the road and I am convinced that even our newest staff member will know that a chocolate mousse, especially such a superb one, deserves to be chilled in a fridge.

Our cleaning staff is thrilled to hear that their efforts in keeping every "Corner" clean & tidy are recognized by food lovers and critics alike. In Germany we would say: "Here, one could actually eat from the floor".

You refer to clinical surroundings; well it could possibly be that there is a cleaning competition going on between our staff and the pharmacy opposite the road. Being a restaurant owner, whose passion it is to satisfy every customer and to serve clean, tasty food - I hope we’ll “out-clean” them just like Audi outnumbered Mercedes & BMW to date. Thanks for the comparison.

We are looking forward to welcome you again soon during one of your next visits to sunny Phuket. Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year 2014.

Best regards
