Patong, West Phuket

Phuket, Thailand –The 9th Floor, one of Phuket’s trendiest fine dining establishments has once again been included in the Tatler Best Restaurant Guide recognising it as one of the Thailand’s premier restaurants.
The restaurant, which was founded just five years ago, first won this accolade in 2009 and repeated the success again for 2010, 2011, 2012 and now for 2013 with a very strong score in all four categories of appraisal – food and menu; wine cellar; ambience and setting and service.

“Mr. Thomas Brack the General Manager of the 9th Floor said, “We are delighted to be recognised for our outstanding food, wine and service once again and it is a great honour to be selected as one of Thailand’s top restaurants. This year’s Thailand Tatler award is the result of a superb team effort in which every member of our staff played a great part. From our dedicated professionals in the kitchen, to our elegant and knowledgeable front of house staff, to our management team, every staff member continues to contribute greatly to our success. No one deserves greater praise than our internationally-trained chef Wara Pakdeevirote and her team who have maintain the very highest standards in the kitchen. Situated on the 9th floor of the Sky Inn Condotel off Rat – U –Thid Road in Patong, the 9th Floor Restaurant and Bar serves some of the best award-winning Mediterranean food in Phuket, as well as Alpine specialties and a superb Thai selection of dishes. The décor is ultra-chic and the restaurant is urbane and tasteful. Floor-to-ceiling sliding windows afford unprecedented views across Patong and the Andaman Sea…. particularly beguiling around sunset and the convivial bar is a favorite meeting place.

The welcoming bar serves terrific cocktails, local and international beers and the wine cellar has been expanded to almost 300 labels offering a highly comprehensive range of European classics, established New World favourites and emerging vintners and regions, as well as excellent wine by the glass.
Beautiful, elegantly dressed, attentive and knowledgeable, the staff at The 9th Floor are undoubtedly another reason that the restaurant enjoys so many repeat and local residents amongst its enthusiastic clientele.

  1. Boasting fine dining with a gorgeous view over Patong, the 9th Floor Restaurant & Bar is ideal for that romantic dinner or special occasion. Its name comes from the fact that it is found on the ninth floor of the Sky Inn Condotel. As well as a lovely view, this hip open-air restaurant boasts a stylish interior and beautiful wait staff. Mediterranean cuisine, Alpine specialties and authentic Thai food are offered alongside French and Italian dishes. There is also large selection of quality wines from around the world at reasonable prices. Booking ahead is strongly recommended.

  2. We checked out the 9th Floor before going the review we found we were good. it is in a strange location in a plain condo unit but once we got out of the lift on the 9th floor we were imprssive by the warm welcome, decor and view for the large open windows. We pushed the boat out and had Aus tennserloin which was wrapped in parma ham, it melted in our mouths. Waitress spoke good english and were helpful and charming. We were fairly full after our steak but managed to eat a pear in red wine between us for dessert.

  3. Me and my husband were there to celebrate our anniversary. Staff were attentive, great food and scenery, awesome wine selection. We were also treated to a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. Certainly not cheap but worth a visit. Will definitely come back.

  4. I was there with my customer and my colleague, first time I been there I love atmosphere and the view was great I don’t know which menu I should order because all of them look delicious. Finally, I ordered and love their steaks and wine which were wonderful. Their service was excellent and staff spoke good English. Highly recommended.

  5. The saying “do not judge a book by its cover”, comes to mind with regard this restaurant. From the outside it is not inviting as it is in a bland apartment block building, however once the lift doors open on the 9th floor things look so different. The waitresses were attentive, food superior, wine menu good but have to check the prices, view nice and relaxing but not super wow. Well worth a visit, for a special night out.

  6. Had a great time with friend here. We were not sure when we looked at the building from outside, but very surprise when we reached there on the 9th floor, everything different! Very nice and romantic place. The staff are well trained, attentive and know how to take care of the customer. Food was great. Price is expensive, but I think acceptable. Strongly recommend for a special occasion.

  7. Lovely place for a romantic dinner with a scenic view of Patong town. We found they have a good wine list and many food options on the menu, a little pricier but great for that special occasion.

  8. Waitresses were smiling and smarty, attractively dressed. Made a nice change eating here and getting away for the noise of Patong and have that real feeling that we were dining out having an occasion, not just eating out, so many restaurants in Patong are ok but not that inviting or professional. Thought the baked salmon with cheese and spinch was delicious. We had a most lovely night.

  9. Fairly expensive, but there is always a premium price to pay for restaurants in Patong that have good views and service. The food was of superior quality and to their credit they have a different more varied menu than most. We were happy with our main course lamb shank, the highlight of our meal was dessert, dipping fruit into the chocolate fondue was fun. A pity they allow smoking, and wine was a fairly hefty price.

  10. Located in the Sky Inn Condo building which is not impressive looking from the outside, but has a car park. Once leaving the lift on the 9th floor we felt we were in a different world. We stepped out to a small lobby and was greeted by a waitress that lead us to our table. The restaurant has a good outlook over patong via the large floor to ceiling, open windows. The menu is varied and as we like to share our meals we ordered mixed cold cuts for starters and for main had a beef, pork and chicken fondue which was fun to eat. Dessert we had red wine pear, the pear was lovely and soft. We are not wine tasting experts so we had a good value bottle of Sauvignon Blanc cost i think was around 2,200 baht but they had many more wine that were more expensive. Service and food was good, cost reasonable considering the high standard of food. Just strange being in a condo and a shame we could not get a table right by one of the windows.

  11. Amazing place, amazing views. A real treat we had here. Service was friendly and authentic. The food was excellent.

  12. If you love wines this is the place. A huge selection of hard to find vintages and cellared properly. The food is excellent too.

  13. When you arrive it’s a bit weird as the car park area and then lift area is pretty below par and a bit concerning.

    However, once at the restaurant, wow…..great atmosphere and view.

    Staff very attractive and efficient.

    Wine list comprehensive but not cheap.

    Food was excellent and beautifully presents.

    A ‘treat’ sort of place but worth it.

  14. Top class. We went there for a celebration dinner and was blown away by the excellent service from the girls who all spoke great english. I highly recommend the steaks. The building is a bit rundown but once inside the decor and view is great. just overall an excellent restaurant.

  15. I would rate it 5 stars if the location was set in a different building. The food was great, the views also. Once you get out of the elevator its another world. The prices are on the high end.

  16. I ate here for my birthday this month and had a great time. The cheese fondue, which is hard to find in Phuket, was just great as was the chocolate fondue for dessert.

    Would recommend this restaurant as a must visit location as the views over Patong at night time are superb especially when the floor to ceiling windows are opened allowing for a pleasant breeze
