A beautifully appointed restaurant in a quiet Soi in Kathu. A slightly limited menu but the food is of excellent quality and extremely tasty. The head chef is always available to cater to your specific needs and the staff are very friendly and acomodating. If you are looking for fine dining, tasty well presented dishes without fancy prices you really need to take the effort to put this on your list of eateries. Superb!

The food is delicious and the restaurant has a nice ambience. The staff is the nicest I have ever experienced. They really care about their costumers: ordering cheap taxis, chit chatting with you, and giving you free extras are just some examples. It feels like a family after two visits... try their beef!

Wiktionary describes the simile "chalk and cheese" like this:

different as chalk and cheese ‎(not comparable)

(Britain, New Zealand, simile) Two things that are different, particularly two things that are superficially alike but very different in substance.

My girlfriend and I arrived on the last flight in to Phuket last night and we were met by her Thai sister, Aussie brother in law and their little girl.

I had told them that I was in serious need of a fine dining experience which should include a steak (I've had steak every Friday for most of my adult life..living in cowtown Alberta Canada) a bottle of red wine and a nice atmosphere.
We met at their home and headed about 300 metres up the street to a place aptly name Chaulk and Cheese.

I see why the owners chose the name ....as there are many restaurants in Phuket, however there is none comparable to this.
We were cordially met by the staff and chef Por. We ordered the Chilean Red Wine and a carafe of the house White. The girls drank the white and we devoured the red. It had spicy over tones and flavours of the oak barrel that pleased the pallete and made the taste buds pop.
We enjoyed the bruschetta and spicy sausage with French bread as an appetizer. But nothing could prepare me for the amazing baseball sized Aussie beef tenderloin that was to follow. It was name Tenderloin au povoir I believe. Described on the menu as a tenderloin with a mushroom peppercorn sauce.
It was served with roasted potatoes and mixed veggies. The chef and staff patiently and attentively awaited my order... And it was getting late, yet the staff served with smiles until way after closing.
To call this meal delicious is a huge understatement. The beef was cooked to perfection and the potatoes were succulent and melted in my mouth. I have visited some of the best steakhouses in North America and this restaurant in Phuket put all of them to shame.
The owners have travelled extensively around the world and know the standard, and they have surpassed any and all.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that would like to experience world class dining at its best while in Phuket.
The price was modest.. The food terrific and the service spectacular.
Thanks again Por and staff.
