Seashore Al Fresco – The Surin Phuket
It’s a long and winding, and ultimately delightfully fulfilling road, that leads to the Beach Restaurant at The Surin in Phuket.
Hidden away at a far edge of the upscale resort, the Beach Restaurant is reached by following a path that meanders along rolling hillsides – with the sound of the sea as your guide – before sloping down to where the restaurant and its tables are set on a manicured lawn, just metres from gently breaking waves on the seashore.
Descending at sunset into this enchanting setting, where west-facing Pansea Beach meets the waves of an endless sea view, and when the beguiling character of the Beach Restaurant comes alive, is an arrival to treasure.
And dining al fresco here amid a velvet twilight, with the soothing splashes of the seashore melded with traditional live Thai gamelan music in a hypnotic soundtrack, is a quintessential Phuket experience.
Of course, the Beach Restaurant’s authentic Thai cuisine completes this classic scenario. And a recently revamped menu has upped the culinary ante to bring a new dimension to the whole captivating beachside experience.
Given its location, there’s no surprise in finding premium seafood well represented on the menu, both in barbeque and authentic Thai options.
But for a charismatic taste of authentic Thai cuisine, skilfully prepared and executed, the Thai Degustation Menu is exceptional and hard to top.
This enticing Thai spread consists of three appetisers, soup, four main course dishes and a dessert, that all take your taste buds on a whirling journey of gastronomic delight.
The Beach Restaurant experience is a delight for all the senses – the sight of colourful sunsets across the sea; lulling sounds of soft waves; and the touch and taste of exceptional cuisine.
