Thai with a twist in Phuket Town

If you want a great night out in Phuket Town, with some of the best Thai food around, look no further than Siam Indigo, Exotique Bar & Restaurant.

Co-owner Celine Masson has transformed an historical old building on Phang Nga Rd, into a trendy restaurant oozing with character.

Celine and friend Pisit Aongskultong decided to go into business together and began searching for the perfect place in Phuket Town, when they came across the 100-year-old building.

They redecorated and the inside of the restaurant is now simply spectacular, with various art gracing the walls.

The restaurant offers a mixture of "Thai with a twist" dishes, many of which give traditional Thai recipes new life, such as the signature dish of duck massaman curry (B250).

Also sampled was pla neung manaow (seabass fish fillet served with Chinese fungus mushrooms), for B280.

The restaurant offers a selection of Thai tapas, which is a fantastic idea to ensure you get to sample all the great dishes.

Six tapas are B230 per person, while 10 are 290 pp.

Our selection of mixed tapas included fresh tuna laab on shrimp cracker (easily the stand out dish), mini shrimp cakes, smoked salmon on a rice noodle bed, smoked chicken wings, smoked duck rolls with ginger orange salsa, and green mango salad with marinated shrimp.

Cocktails, including a spicy mojito which has chilli pieces inside, are B190, except during happy hour from 5pm to 7pm when they are only B100.

Celine is the perfect host, and sister Cathy runs the night time operations with the same enthusiasm.

You can tell that both these women love Phuket Town and are passionate about the restaurant.

Siam Indigo is the perfect place for an evening drink, a romantic meal for two, or simple a night out in Phuket Town. With its well-priced, tasty food, it has got to be one of the best restaurants on the island. So if you haven’t been already, make sure you put Siam Indigo on your to-do list while in Phuket.
