“Sexy dining in Phuket :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Once again, a spot recommended by fellow diners in Phuket - finally had the chance to get there this time, and much to my great pleasure. Had a really stellar experience across the board.

Service - a key highlight of the evening. Hostesses were immaculately presented and was on a hostess per table basis - so the flow of service was rather seamless and very attentive. This is something that as a regular eat-out kinda guy, goes in most cases grossly overlooked. There is nothing less desirable than having to "beg" for a waiter's attention. Fortunately this was not the case here! Let me even go as far as saying that our hostess was able to help select a very suitable bottle of wine for the meal. Even so much as to say the wine would be "sexy wine".

Right on - Schubert BLOCK B - a great drop! And yep, very sexy!

So along with a great wine, came a great meal. Well executed Thai cuisine and a great selection of French inspired food also. A very vast selection which should certainly appeal to a broad selection of palettes. I do thoroughly appreciate Thai food - and this was no exception.

A for Ambience - as the name suggests, located on the 9th floor - the entire floor to which the restaurant was dedicated was opened up with full length sliding doors - creating the impression of a "open floor" - a rare opportunity to experience Phuket from above. The bar was well designed and strikingly lit, and every care was taken in the attention to detail in the overall aesthetic flow of the place.

One of the places you should certainly put on your "must do" list when visiting Phuket. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended! ++

“World class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended to me by the manager of a hotel I was staying in near Patong Beach. It is located inside of a seedy looking hotel on the outside, but I was informed by the manager who recommended it to just ignore this and take the elevator up to the 9th floor. I would be amazed at what I would find. Being the adventurous kind, I went there expecting something nice as my reward. I have to say what I found was NOT nice -it was OUTSTANDING, like one of the top restaurants I've been to in any country I've visited in my life! From the moment I stepped off the elevator on the 9th floor and was greeted by the maitre'd, to the unbelievable presentation and artistry of the food, to the incredible taste and the billion dollar views with floor to ceiling windows that were open, I was transported to another world of excellence in everything. There are 5 or six different kinds of steak dishes as well ad Salmon,and other fish dishes and salads. All VERY creative. Come if you like, but have a reservation in hand or you may walk away sad. I would rank this best kept secret in Patong as the best of the best in Thailand!

“Highly memorable evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

The 9th Floor restaurant was recommended to us by a number of friends as somewhere offering great views, stylish surroundings, quality of service and of course excellent food.

As we were looking at a Saturday evening (9pm) booking, calling in advance was recommended and contact numbers were available on their website, together with directions. As its name suggests this restaurant is on the 9th floor of what appears to be an office block, albeit it is well sign posted. Once out of the quite dodgy looking lift, the foyer area offers a glimpse of what is otherwise a very well presented and contemporary layout. It's not a big restaurant which makes it cosy and the views out over the night-time Patong skyline offer a real 'wow factor'.

The outer edges of the restaurant are open to the environment, with a half-height thick glass surround enhancing the views and offering a gentle breeze. There appeared to be one waitress per table, offering attentive, albeit not intrusive levels of personal service. The menu was comprehensive Western, delicious and beautifully presented.

With wine, the final bill was up at mid-level, Western city prices, however I would highly recommend making the time to experience what would be a memorable evening.

“Superb gourmet experience in Patong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

This was our first trip to 9th Floor after having visited Patong Beach many times over the past 15 years. It was the best meal I have had in Patong, top to bottom. A huge list of creative cocktails and wine by the bottle set the texture for a lavish dinner of mushroom risotto and Australian Chateaubriand done to a perfect seared medium rare. There were as many waitresses as customers and the manager greeted and chatted with customers throughout the evening. Top marks for this great addition to the Phuket restaurant scene.
