Also Enzo Bistro at Bang Niang will close during June while it relocates 100m up the road. If you are in the area and a fan of Japanese food book in as Toshi is offering 35% off a la carte at the moment and on May 31 it will be 50% off.

Hi, are many restaurants further south in Phuket also closed during rainy season? I have been to Ko Samui in Oct during the rainy season and restaurants there were all open.

It depends which part of Phuket you are referring to. Most of the restaurants in areas like Patong, Karon and Kata will stay open but there are less directly facing the beachfront that are subject to high tides and beach erosion which is the main reason those in Khao Lak near the beach close. Most restaurants away from the beach remain open.

May I ask if anyone knows if the restaurants on the beach near the Sentido also close? We arrive in June and based on our previous visit to Khao Lak, these family run beach restaurants are the highlight of the area :)

Thanks

Almost all of the restaurants in Bang Niang Beach are open year round. The open air market and Tsunami Memorial Park are located here as well. Market days are Monday,Wednesday and Saturday afternoon from 2 till 8pm. Bang Niang Beach Road has more cultural diversity as far as menu options. They have the best Japanese, Mexican, German, Indian and Thai restaurants in the province. Khau Niau should be open in the next day or two.

The restaurants near the Sentido opened last Low Season. Whether all or some do this will depend on customers and the weather.

We had a lovely meal at the orchid cafe tonight, so it is open but the only thing on the menu is spring rolls, pad Thai and fried banana!

Lucky for us we like spring rolls and pad Thai!!!!

The food was cooked in front of us and very tasty and cheap!
