High Class Dining in Phuket
Visitors to Phuket get to take advantage of a wide variety of dining options. It is possible to enjoy dishes from all four regions of Thailand, and there are plenty of restaurants to cater for those who prefer to stick to western food. All types of international cuisine are catered for in Phuket and most of the famous food chains such as McDonalds, KFC, and Subway will even offer home deliveries. There are restaurants to suit every budget, and it is possible to enjoy a four course meal for a fraction of what it would cost in a western country. There are also options for those who want a more luxurious dining experience – and one of these options would be Mom Tri’s Kitchen.
Mom Tri’s Kitchen
Mom Tri’s Kitchen offers a high class dining experience in a stunningly beautiful location. The restaurant is situated in the highlands that separate Kata Noi beach from Kata Yai beach. Diners can expect a breathtaking view of the Adaman Sea, and the best time of day to be here is at sunset. With so much natural beauty there is a risk that a man made structure could be intrusive, but Mom Tri has been careful to ensure that the restaurant perfectly suits the location. He has made use of terracotta floor tiling and plenty of open spaces. There is also an open terrace dining area for those who want to hear the waves and feel the gentle breeze as they dine.
Mom Tri’s Kitchen is owned by Mom Luang Tridhosyuth Devakul (Mom Tri). He is one of the most successful businessmen in Thailand, and is also a Harvard educated architect. Mom Tri also owns a number of other businesses in Phuket including:
- Club Med on Kata Beach

- Mom Tri’s Baan Kata Villas
- Mom Tri’s Boathouse
- Le Royal Meridien Phuket Yacht Club
- Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort
- Trisara Hotel and Resort

Mom Tri’s Kitchen is situated in the same location as his house so it is obviously a particularly special project for him.
