Rimtang @Chalong

Chalong, South Phuket

The pleasant ambience eatery , Rimtang @Chalong is set in a pretty garden and located beside a lake , opposite the rear entrance of the well-known Chalong Temple. It has 3 zones including indoor space decorated with art objects , an outdoor coffee bar/cafe and large balcony facing the lagoon and lush tropical garden. Delectable , well presented Thai and Western foods can be ordered and eaten here. Also they have an onsite gift souvenir shop where Phuket local food and souvenirs can be purchased. There is 2nd Rimtang Restaurant , located in Phuket Town , on Thung Kha Road , 5 minutes walk from the Phuket Merlin Hotel.

  1. Rimtang @Chalong is the second branch of Rimtang Restaurant, which has its original premises in Phuket Town. It is positioned beside a peaceful lake along Soi Ta Aied near the well known Chalong Temple. Apart from a myriad of foods, Rimtang is very famous for its signature local dessert: Chao Kuey, also known as “black jelly”. Diners can choose to either sit indoors or on the outdoor terrace to enjoy the scenic lake views.


  2. Fine lake and garden view. Highly recommended to try local dessert. Chao Kuey or black jelly is so famous here. Also sticky rice with mango very tasty and available some season, should try in summer season. One of a famous local food souvenir that is Nam Prik Kung Seap yummy as well as Chao Kuey. Can choose either open air or air condition. Easy to find here since it is behind Chalong Temple on Luang Pho Chaem Road.

  3. This is a 2nd branch. I think the food price is a bit higher than the first one in town. Anyway, the famous drink with the black jelly still as good as usual. It will never let you down.

  4. Chao Kuay or Black jelly here is the best one, my mom and my friend from BKK said. But for me I like Khao Tang Nga Tang (crispy rice with Thai style dip) and sticky rice with mango. They also have many local food which you also can buy as souvenir. Price is reasonable. It has a very nice atmosphere, besides the lake, has both open air and air conditioning zone. Recommended!

  5. I personally like the grass jelly (black jelly) very much and this place can always give me what I want. Their grass jelly or Chao Kuay in syrup is my favourite… very yummy! The lakeside setting and garden surroundings make its atmosphere very relaxing and airy. Great food at a very good place!

  6. Has a nice setting beside the lake. We tried some local dishes which were ok. The outside seating overlooking the lake was quite nice. But I think they should make the inside area nicer. Its a bit like a canteen.

  7. Songkran Festival this year is my 2nd time to Phuket.
    After visited “Wat Chalong” we had lunch at “Rimtang Restaurant” It is in superb location (opposite back door of the temple) with garden and lake views. Guests can choose indoor or open air sitting. My friend recommend “Nam Prik Kung Seap” which is famous local food. I like “Chao Kuay Cha Kiaw Tunyaphut and Khao Niaw Mamuang (sticky rice with mango) Good in hot day.
