“A chance encounter”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

We came across this restaurant by chance, normally it is closed on a Wednesday but due to a visit by a local dignitary taking place the owner had opened. Air conditioned interior a pleasant change to the usual open aired restaurants. The owner Jens clearly has an eye for detail, in particular with the care taken in the presentation of every meal and the thought into selecting the crockery the food is served on. The quality of the food was excellent, the satay starters in particular are worth a try, the mains sweet and sour chicken and the phat thai chicken were both wonderful. Service was excellent and very friendly. Jens was more than willing to share his extensive knowledge of Phuket which was also really helpful.

“Returned and not disappointed!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We went again after our first visit some 6 weeks ago and the food was brilliant again. The German owner is very personable as are all the staff. We had a conversation about which were our favourite restaurants in the world, and we have been all over, but the food here is one of the very best in our opinion that we have ever been to. The chocolate mousse is still as delicious as well! Thank you.

“Brilliant you must visit”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We spent 3 weeks and ate here at least 4 times. We first went with 2 friends and it was a "buffet evening". Simple good food well cooked and excellent choices. Chicken in coconut soup I think was first. Spicy chicken, delicious other meats and salads, spaghetti bolognaise, main and desert of the day. There is a price of THB290 without wine or THB590 with half a carafe!! Well our friends decided on getting 4 meals at 290 and a bottle of wine (THB1200) so actual wine was more than food. But DO NOT worry, wine was excellent and food superb. Add to that a warm welcome from Jens ( a German) with a very wide experience in the industry. I also triedtheir a la carte on other evenings and it was just as good.
Look this may not be fine dining some Trip Advisor readers insist on every time. As well as that I also enjoy value for money and challenge anyone to get a meal as good as this under £6. Some of the others I shall be reviewing in Phuket should be ashamed of their charges considering the value they offer - Well done to Jens and staff at The Corner House - I will return next time.

“Excellent people, excellent food”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

The 1st Time i went there is because we stayed at friends house nearby close to the Laguna. Jens and artti were so attentfull. We had a delicious seabass as main course and as appetizer he advised for some finger bites. The atmosphere at the corner is really chilled. It is not so big restaurant and i loved that, more intimate.you do not hear all the people. The service is more personal and you are not just a number like any other tourist.
That's why I always go back when I am in Phuket. During lunch or dinner.
The price you pay? Well, it is Thailand, it is always cheaper than any EU Country, always more fresh and more tasty! You will definitely pay not more than any other restaurant over there.
