Description: Pappadams is an Indian restaurant in the beautiful island of Phuket offering authentic Indian cuisine. We have a range of Indian delicasies ranging from mouthwatering curries to hot-from-the-oven tandoori dishes. We also serve a range of vegetarian dishes. Pappadams operates from 2 branches in Patong, Phuket. The first branch is located right on Patong Beach at Absolute Sea Pearl Beach Resort and the other at Soi Baanzan (the road behind Jungceylon leading to Nanai Road). We also offer delivery and take-away services.

“Probably the Best Curry in Thailand”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We were looking for an Indian at Patong Beach and found Pappadams by chance. In a 12 night stay we ate their 5 times. Thats how good it was. The four of us all enjoy a good curry and that is exactly what we got. The service was great and the meat (Lamb) so tender. You can stipulate how hot or not you want the curry and they somehow get it just right. The ambiance is good, you can eat inside or on the Terrace as we did.The only down side was they do not do Popadoms, onions and chutneys at the start of the meal in the same way as they do in the UK. The price worked out at arond £20 per head including drinks. We are looking to go back to Thailand next year and guess where we will go for a curry.

“Good Indian food”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

After searching for a good English style Indian in patong for a week I finally found Pappadam. A great menu but can also cook to your style or taste. Well recommend the beach front restaurant for a dinner before a night out or the local one for a more casual feast with beer. Will be back soon.

We ate here on a couple of occasions and found the food very tasty, the service was good and you can ask for food to be mild medium or hot. Definitely recommended!

“Nice food, nice people.”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I ate at both of Pappadams venues, firstly in Soi Banzaan then at Patong Beach. The first is a more relaxed sports bar type whilst the second is classier. I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere at both and highly recommend them. The friendliness of the owners and their staff help to enhance the experience.
