Finally get to try this place!
Love everything they did for/during our dinner.
Staff is polite, never rushing, and always smiling.
Delicious food! We ordered BBQ ribs tamarind glazed full rack and a Nepalese-Indian curry. Yummy from the first to the last bite. Western portion. I was super full to the max finishing my dish.
Generous and interesting drink list. We had Paper Plane and Samurai Prince.
Total at 1500 something, well-worth it in my opinion.

Perfect for: fine dining, romantic dinner, dinner with friends

Oh did I mention they have a nice setting in their bar zone too!

Well done Taste! We were completely devastated when we got to Surin to see you weren't on the beach anymore, but delighted to find you in Cherntalay. We had a fabulous dinner at Taste again this year - the food is just delicious, the menu is extensive and overall, fantastic value for money. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great meal, with lovely service in a lovely dining room.

Have visited this restaurant when it was on the beachfront at Surin & they have now relocated to north of Surin on the main road to Bangtao.
The food is sensational & the service is excellent.
I had a Thai beef salad, crispy pork main finished with the mango crumble.
Absolutely delicious & can't wait to call again.
No matter where you are on Phuket, do yourself a favour & make an effort to get to Taste as you will not be disappointed.

I decided to take my family to Taste because of the excellent rating on TripAdvisor. (Number 18 on the entire island of Phuket and number 5 in the Chemgtalay district).
You ll find Taste smack in the middle of the city about 2 or 3 km inland from Surin Beach . Although it is quite convenient, we did not find any particular charm in the location itself.

It is possible to dine outdoor under a covered terrace or porch. We were assigned a large table for 4 inside a spacious restaurant with high ceilings. The place seems to be patronized by residents or expats which is a good hint-for me at least- about the quality of the food and service. The air conditioning was working well. Personally I did not like the volume of the music through the loudspeakers. I asked the waitress to reduce the volume. She did so a bit. But other customers did not seem to bother about the music and it stayed like that.

The kitchen is open and you can watch a busy brigade fixing the meals before your very eyes. Nothing to hide. In the restaurant a very large team of nicely dressed waitresses is efficiently taking care of the diners.

One of us took a “Samourai Prince” cocktail a bit out of curiosity because of the name. It turned out to be an excellent choice.
We ordered main courses and opted for seafood. One of us had grilled salmon prepared in a Japanese way. The two others had white snapper but cooked in two different ways. One recipe from Nothern Thailand, the other more local from Southern Thailand. Supposedly hotter. The three of us were all very happy with our choices.
We ended this nice evening with desserts which were both generous and tasty.

The bill averaged 1100 THB per pax and we think this is a good price for both food and beverages. We strongly recommend Taste for the quality of the food, the originality of the blended recipes and the impeccable service.

My wife and I have just eaten here twice recently.
Formerly on Surin beach, but now demolished by the authorities. Thankfully reopened opposite Tesco in Cherngtalay.
SLightly revised Menu, but all the old favorites are there! Toast Skagen, lamb rack, Tibetan curry(!), deserts. Great selection of wines at reasonable prices.
Always friendly and efficient staff. Jade and Martin.are excellent hosts.
Not to be missed if you need a break from Thai beach food and a great quality meal.good balance of Western, Thai Asian an 'Modern' dishes.
