This place is a nice escape from the busyness of Patong Beach with excellent menu and is a must when visiting Phuket. The beautiful decoration and garden are magical. The owners Marc and Corry make sure you are welcome, entertained and experience delicious French food with a Thai twist from locally grown herbs. You can sip cold blue water and enjoy some moringa soup. We especially liked the aperitif served next to the pool in the evening. Thank you Marc and Corry & co.

The decoration itself is the signature of the owners, people with great taste & a sense of hospitality like nowhere else! The food served is both elegant and delicious. The service is absolutely stunning. The intimacy of the restaurant itself makes it exclusive! I recommend it both for romantic dinner and for large groups because anything is possible at Royale Nam Tok.

An expression of a different concept, as in break with Phuket, have the feeling of being received in a house for dinner.
the decoration is invaded by objects, glasses, carafes and other precious dishes, it is a cocoon, a doll's house and its garden.
The table is set on tablecloths and lace placemats.
The menu is short which is a good thing, reasonable prices for the place, only the wine menu would deserve to be reviewed and adjusted to the level of prices that are too high (even for Thailand) and choice.
The quality of the kitchen is excellent, the service vigilant and professional.
A good time in a nice house.

Good morning dear guest,

Thanks for your visit and writing this interesting review, always nice to hear how guests felt after they visited us!


Great to read your enjoyed your dining moment in our "Doll House"... a very personal way of calling our place, ….hahaha.

About my wines list too limited choice and expensive??

We have only 20 seats, 5 tables in our small boutique restaurant, so why should I offer a larger choice of wines, AND DON'T FORGET: many customers bringing their own great wines by themselves (because high taxes in Thailand), and we charge coark age, so why to extend my choice of wines???

Please compare our prices of wine with hotel prices, like our house wine at 1,795tb NET, similar wine served in hotels is 2,500tb + 7% tax and + 10% service charge, so??

However, again we are thank full of your visit and opinion, you have the freedom of writing and thinking, same as we have to reply.

Al the best and greetings from Phuket.

We were astonished to have found this little gem of a restaurant in the middle of nowhere literally! As you walk in you transported to a old fashioned classy restaurant! From the word go, you are served tasty snacks...and every course was more delicious than the next (if that is possible) and to top it all we had a chocolate souffle which was absolutely delicious way to finish such a unique dinning experience! Their attention to detail and the way they served their food was perfect in my opinion! Their food is as good as any Michelin/ hatted restaurant we have been too! Fabulous, fabulous - if one is in Phuket you need to visit this restaurant in Kathu!

Please no0te that this restaurant doesnt take walk ins. They also don't take tacky people or those from emerging markets that don't know how to behave themselves. While it is not dressy, it is certainly not flip flops and t shirts. THAT IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY REASONS TO LOVE THIS PLACE.

You arrive in a very unassuming neighborhood and are welcomed inside a home filled with Asian and European antiques. And you might just be lucky enough to be the only people there. They have only 5 tables!

The first snack is really just a tid bit o things to come. As you sip a glass of wine or smart cocktail, the lovable owner Cory and his sidekick Koin, greet you and answer any and all questions you might have..because you will have many. Why is this place here? Why do Cory remind you of a younger, handsome Nathan Lane and Koin favors Agador in "The Birdcage:. But aside for all the pleasantries, the food is the star.

And the food keeps coming. And the flavors keep melding. Honestly I cannot remember all we ate and it doesn't matter. Every bite was better than the last. We let the chef create and you should too.

San Francisco has Gary Danko. New Orleans, Galletoirs, New York a lot. But Royale Nam Tak is of a caliber that is hard to describe. If you are lucky enough to get a reservation, you deserve it!

Hello dear guests

WOW, what an amazing review....we have been blowing away.....I like your American way of review about our place.....its true we following just our own league.....no trendy, no influence by guides, just doing what we love....pampering customers with a lot of details!!

And yes , some like our style and some not, BUT we can't do good for everyone that's impossible and also not our goal!!

However thanks again for your visit and nice comments, we hope welcoming you again in our small, boutique restaurant.

Amical greetings from Chef Marc and your host Corry
The owners.
