“Authentic thai food - delish!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Usually i'm quite sceptical about restaurants in thailand which do western food (usually means it doesn't serve authentic local food), but with the high trip advisor rating I decided to take the risk.

We took a taxi from our hotel (outrigger laguna) and when we got to the restaurant, we were greeted by the owner, Jens, a lovely german man who had opened the restaurant with his wife. There was about 12 tables in the front dining area, and even though Jens was rushed off his feet that night, we took the time to make us feel welcome and somehow gave the impression that every diner was a priority. There is a buffet option, but we decided to go a la carte.

We ordered the sea bass, baked avocado and pad thai. I highly recommend the baked avocado - super tasty!! I have had young coconut plenty of times, but it was at this restaurant that I was given a spoon with my coconut and that was when i learnt that I could scoop out the insides to get to the yummy pulp! During the meal I realised that many of the people who were dining at The corner, were actually guests at the Outrigger Laguna.

At the end of the meal, Jens helped us call a taxi (which was cheaper than the taxi which was called from the hotel).

The restaurant is located next to a late shop, so you can pick up a few essentials before heading back to your hotel.

If I ever end up on that side of Phuket, I would make another trip to The Corner. :)

“Every review is true, nice place, great food and friendly service.”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Now I know why this "place on the corner" is so highly rated.
Sometimes you read reviews and wonder if it all true, in this case, yes it is!
We were welcomed by a door being opened before we reached it by very attentive staff, offered seating of our choice and greeted in the usual friendly Thai manner.
Our hostess then handed over to a waiter with excellent attention to detail.
He offered suggestions that were both on and off the menu (specials) as well as informing us of their buffet nights later in the week.
The food selection is varied and caters for those who want a change or just international food in place of Thai.
We stayed with the local choices (when in Rome and all that...).
Fresh spring rolls (not deep fried), Sea Bass, Swordfish (with mashed potatoes from heaven!) an Irish coffee meticulously prepared and a gratis Swiss chocolate mousse with drinks all for a reasonable 1200 Baht.
We will be back, especially to try the German beef roll.
All in all, highly recommended.

“Te & Juerg Studer”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

We went to eat in Jen's Corner Restaurant to enjoie a good kitchen - and we were not disappointed...
The german beef-roll with "Blaukraut" was just like back home and the "Wienerschnitzel" was tasty and very tender.
We will return with friends to eat at the Corner Restaurant.

“Awesome new place in Laguna”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We've been looking for a fantastic place to have breakfast in this area for such a long time and now we've found it!! Not been for dinner yet but have been told by mates that it is equally superb.
Jens is a great guy, the cleanliness is immaculate and obvious from the moment you walk in, which is really important.
Service is sharp, food is great and really well priced.
Over all, a fantastic little place that really deserves the reputation it is getting for itself. Who said you can't make a go of a restaurant business in Phuket???? This guy clearly is and good luck to you Jens and the team, you're doing a great job and i'll be back for more salmon soon!!
