I regularly visit Chef Daniels restaurant, not just for the best Cocktails in Phuket especially the Strawberry Passion Fruit Mojito but the fantastic food also. It's somewhat hard to get a decent burger or Steak in Phuket but Chef Daniels has mastered them. The theme of the restaurant is hip and modern and the tunes playing are perfect at any evening. Chef Daniel will regularly mingle with the customers and explain the delicacies of the day. Love the complimentary starters everytime. Would highly recommend trying it out!!

On the second day of our stay in Bang Tao i checked Tripadvisor and decided that we (we being my Mother, Father and boyfriend ) should go for amazing food and cheerful staff at this restaurant. We made reservations earlier in the day and we arrived on Thursday night by 9 pm, nobody offered us a seat. Two waitresses were running around 8 tables without paying attention to us. After standing around and waiting for 10 mins We decided to just take the menus ourselves from the counter. After another 10 mins with no service they eventually took orders for our drinks, after asking 2-3 times for our drinks they eventually arrived about 25 minutes later. The Toblerone cocktail was very average, the cocktail with ginger and chili was just ok however the cocktail with honey and basil was very tasty! For the appetizers we had to wait about one hour after we ordered the cocktails. We tried to talk with chef but all we heard was that there was a lack of staff this night and his 2nd chef was off on that night. It wouldn't happen in a properly managed restaurant. First starter was spring rolls which were good. About 20 minutes later we got the soft shell crab which was average. TheTuna tartar however was one of the best i have ever eaten.By the time we finished the appetizers we were over 1 hour into being at the restaurant and still none had even asked us for our main orders yet. By this time we had run out of patience and appetites as still nobody had served us and nobody had taken the order for the mains. My mom was so hungry that she had to order ice cream as it was already pre made and easy to serve. Second portion of drinks took 30 minutes which arrived with totally the wrong order. When we questioned it the snotty waitress responded with ' Well the barman said this is what you had last time'! We were very polite to the staff all evening and when the waitress started getting lippy with us well enough was enough.. It was a waste of a beautiful evening. Shame the place is a disaster in terms of service. One of the Thai waitress tried to apologize and was understanding but the other waitress with the bleached hair was quite aggressive and rude to us. I love good food and i know the quality and it's the shame it would have taken us 5 hours for dinner if we had stayed for main and desserts so after 2 hours of sitting and waiting we just left. Shame as i still haven't tried their beautiful food because of dreadful service and management. I will finish by saying that they did waive our bill as there was nothing they could have possibly done or said. Its a real shame as i was looking forward to this for a long time. Hopefully we just got the wrong night.
