Description: Undeniably the number one Steakhouse in Patong, the readers of TripAdvisor have recently recognized us as the best fine dining experience in Phuket, and amongst the very best restaurants in Thailand! A classic steakhouse with elegant service, great wine selection and only the very best imported beef combining to make the perfect evening, every time! The dress code for 'smart casual' at all times. We prefer that men will wear long trousers and collared shirt, short or long sleeved, with shoes and that ladies are also suitably attired for dinner. However, we understand that we are in a hot, 'holiday' environment and we are happy to receive guests with more casual attire providing the 'smart casual' tone is maintained. Guests will not be allowed to dine if dressed in beach-wear or sports-wear. Thank you for kind consideration of our other diners.

“Lovely food and the best service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Visited this restaurant yesterday and I recommend that you book as it is very popular! The food was amazing I had a lamb shank and my partner a fillet steak (the prices are above average for Phuket but well worth it!). You get loads of free snacks such as bread and a small chicken slice with salad before your starter, after your starter you then have a lemon sorbet which was so nice! At the end of the meal they give you mint ice cream covered in chocolate served in a foggy cup. Service is 5*, waitress and waiters are lovely! And the food is amazing! Well worth it! It cost us nearly 4000 baht for two people which is a reasonable price for what we received. Would definitely return!!

“The most amazing restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is a true dining experience, located in the Holiday Inn hotel. The service is like something you will probably have never never experienced. It has a real "WOW" factor. Apart from being 5 star, most of your dishes are prepared before you by your waitress. It is so very novel. If your go you absolutely have to finish with the Irish coffee. It is like a show in itself, it just has you mesmerized. They even give you complimentary sorbet between your course to clean the pallet. The last part is the best, I don't want to give too much away but it involved, dry ice, icecream and chocolate and complimentary. Very well priced, we paid approx $120 for 2 starters, we had the shared fillet steak dish, which was carved infront of us, a couple of drinks, Irish coffees, plus a shared desert that was just to die for and it cost approx $130 Australian. It was sooo worth and one of the best dining out experiences I have had in years. The food is exquisite. Don't go there without going to Sam's.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

This was such an experience. As a last minute treat before we left we tried Sam's. We were a little nervous as we had small children but they were so accommodating and so friendly nothing was a problem. We shared the MOST AMAZING rib eye ever. We didn't want dessert but as a surprise they gave us mint ice-cream balls in a floating/glowing dry ice spectacular...hard to describe but think Heston Blumenthal and you get the picture....it was an experience the kids and we shall never forget.
