“Exceptional service and food quality”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Came in a party of 8 persons. The service and professionalism of the waiting staff was the first pleasant surprise. Not often in Phuket do you get the waiters to put a napkin on your knee! Clearly, they've been trained how to do the job properly.

Beer prices are the same as bars, so no rip-off prices in that respect. Food is quite wide in range, and prepared in an open kitchen. Absolutely cooked fresh and superbly. Very attractively presented, too.

Everybody in the party commented on how good the experience was, so will definitely visit again. Nothing disappointed at all.

You can eat cheaper in Rawai, and you can certainly eat more expensive. Lugar is pitched somewhere in the middle, offering great food, in air-con environment, and on our night a nice solo singer.For 8 people, including 2 kids, the food and beer bill came to only 3500 baht. And, they take cards, too, which can be handy.

Many businesses come and go in Phuket - this one deserves to be around for a very long time.

“We had a great dinner”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

On our last night in Phuket and my daughters 23rd Birthday we wanted to go someplace special. I am so glad we went to Lugar! It was fantastic. Great atmosphere, super good entertainment, and exceptional food, making for a great evening. We all had appetizers, main entrée, plus drinks and desserts. Thank you for the super service and making our last dinner in Phuket so special.

“Great restaurant and fantastic value”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Very welcoming place and large portions of good quality food. I wasn't very hungry and only had a starter but the portion size was great. Modern decor and staff very friendly and helpful. There was a heavy rain storm just before we left and the owners provided us with umbrellas to take with us ! Fantastic value for excellent food and service; don't miss it !

“Lovely little place”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is a very nice little restaurant on the beach road in Rawai with area to sit inside and out. The staff are extraordinarily welcoming and the food is great at a very reasonable price. There is a thai and an international menu to choose from - I dined here with a party of four adults and a 2 year old, everyone very much enjoyed the dishes that they chose. The chef cooked a small order of spaghetti bolognese for my daughter which the server offered to us free of charge. This is one not to miss. Highly recommended.
