I've eaten at Tropica 4-5 times over 2 visits to Phuket in the last two years and it's always fantastic, I enjoy everything about this restaurant, its food, the staff and the location.
The location is fantastic, it's right in the centre of the action being just off Bangla road and over the road from the beach so its always busy, always lively but not overwhelming, The location means you can escape the hustle and bustle of Patong to enjoy a great meal.
If you're lucky you could catch an amazing sunset over the beach while you dine on your food.
The staff are always pleasant, friendly and welcoming, the food arrives on your table relatively quickly and the prices are very reasonable for what you get.
Two of my favourite meals here are the Massaman Curry and the Eastern Hot Pot of Prawns. The curry is a classic done well without being overly spicy and the prawns are amazing, they are cooked beautifully with a selection of vegetables, bacon and glass noodles and the pot its cooked in is served straight onto your table.
Overall this is one of my favourite places to eat in Patong and well worth a visit.
