Baan Rim Pa

Kalim, West Phuket

Highly recommended when travelling to Phuket, famous for its Thai food and fresh seafood. Located in Kalim, just north of Patong (opposite Novotel Resort) situated on a rocky out-crop overlooking the Andaman Sea with an ambiance second to none. Phuket’s Ultimate in Dining

Baan Rim Pa prides itself on superb authentic Royal Thai Cuisine, an ambience like no other and the most spectacular views on the island. Winner of the prestigious Wine Spectator Award of Excellence every year since 2002 and Phuket No. 1 restaurant – Thailand Tatler Best Restaurant 2014.

  1. Widely regarded as one of the premier restaurants on the island, Baan Rim Pa has been delighting diners with its authentic Royal Thai Cuisine for many years. To ensure that the recipes were genuinely the same as those used to prepare dishes in the royal palace, founder Tom McNamara tracked down the descendants of former chefs who worked in the Grand Palace. The restaurant is housed in a beautiful two-storey teak house perched on a cliff at the northern end of Patong as you cross over into Kalim. With the sound of the waves crashing into the rocks below mixed with the sounds of jazz, blues and Broadway from the piano bar, Baan Rim Pa occupies a simply stunning oceanfront location with gorgeous sea views and romantic sunsets across Patong Bay.


  2. Without a doubt one of the best restaurants on Phuket with superb food and simply amazing views.

    This is one of the places to come to for the sunsets and great dining at the same time

    The atmosphere is second to none and I love the gentle live piano music in the background

  3. Great location and ambience. One of my favourite restaurants on the island. I bring all my guests here if they have never been to Phuket before. Food is excellent although definitely not cheap.

  8. If you haven’t heard of this place by now youre probably dead. Perhaps the most heavily advertised restaurant in Phuket – so we had to try it at least once.
    Right away you notice it is professionally managed and the staff is well trained. The setting is a beauty – right on the water’s edge.
    An extensive menu and well…. it ain’t cheap! The food (mostly Thai) was very good.
    Will we be back… yes.

  10. Had a super evening dinner with my wife here. There is no doubt the ambiance and views are wonderful, sitting at a crisp white table cloth covered table, over looking the sea and hearing the sound of of the waves hitting the rocks. The Thai food we had, Tom Yaan Goong, fried pork and a yellow curry, mixed veg was a little toned down, and not too spicy, which suited us. Menu prices are on the high end but overall worth it as we had a most enjoyable holiday dinning experience.

  11. I heard about this restaurant for a while but I just came to try it last few months. The food there is exactly the best as the hearsay. More than the taste of food is scenery and the location of the restaurant so that made me and my family got both the deliciousness of Thai food and the eye food. Love it !!!

  12. We loved their amazing location on a rocky outcrop overlooking the ocean. Various dishes we ordered like seafood, beef, chicken, rice and noodles were not disappointing. Eating while taking cool sea breeze and listening to waves that continuously crash the rocks below is marvellous! Thai food lovers like us will fall in love with this place I think.
