WonderfuL people, atmosphere and food away from the tourist area. Mostly locals. Do it! We were so impressed that we booked even before the mains came out. We totally recommend the Phad Thai and Green Curry Beef

The food is consistently good, on our last visit we really enjoyed the prawn fritters and the prawn salad that had delicious fresh flavours. The service is good and overall we always have good food and an enjoyable meal.

Phuket is one of the longest lasting restaurants in Glenelg Beach and has always been great. The young waiter there recently observed that I've been going there for a long time... little did he know that "a long time" equated to 26 years! Probably about the same age as him!
The food is never a disappointed; it is authentic, tasty, spicy, generous Thai food and I've never found a green curry anywhere that I've liked as much as this one.
The restaurant has recently been refurbished and the result is fresh and cool, while still retaining a sense of style and thankfully, still carpeted, so the acoustics are good.
Make sure you book on weekends but early in the week you can probably just stroll in and get a seat. Or get some takeaway. Either way, enjoy this excellent restaurant... we always do.

We've been coming to the Phuket Thai now for around five years and have always enjoyed our meals. Food is fabulous, especially the Green Chicken curry and Massaman Beef. Have introduced a number of friends to this restaurant and all have been very impressed. One of the best Thai restaurants we've been to.

Phuket Thai delivers South Australia's best thai food each and every visit. It's a hidden gem that I haven't wanted to share...but it seems to be getting quite popular these days. The newly renovated restaurant serves authentic thai cuisine with a slight cambodian influence in a casual atmosphere. Great for couples, families and friends, but not the place if you're after a quiet, intimate dinner.

My family has been dining here for approximately five years and over this time we have got to know the owner and her brother. Their parents, who are the chefs, use the grandmother's traditional receipts, with all pastes made from scratch. Although adapted to the western palette, their food is a great reflection of what to find in Thailand.

The food is infused with fresh herbs and spices, creating the spicy, sweet and salty balance that is thai. The texture, flavour and aromas are always spot on. Try the spicy squid salad and pandan chicken for entree, followed by the yellow curry, red curry and masamam curry for mains. Their coconut jackfruit ice-cream is amazing too!

Entrees are approximately AUD$10 and mains AUD$14.

To be critical, their service can be average (unless the brother and sister are working), with waiters not that attentive or happy. Also, if they are busy they sometimes do not have the staff to provide prompt service.

Only open nights at this stage, no delivery and they don't accept eftpos (savings and cheque accounts), which can cause difficulty.

But overall, this is my favourite restaurant.
