Kin-Kub-Ei Restaurant

Kin-Kub-Ei Restaurant Phuket

Kin-Kub-Ei Restaurant is a hidden gem serving delicious southern dishes cooked by Khun Tubtim (the lady in the photos) with her family recipes and served in a beautiful garden hidden from the main road on the way to Bangtao Beach. The place is somewhat unique; it only opens three days a week and only with reservations, which makes it a little challenging to plan. The food served is so good and affordable, that Kin-Kub-Ei received a ‘Michelin Bib Gourmand’ from the Phuket Michelin Guide, which stands for quality food and good value cooking.

The garden is lovely, and while the seats are limited, you can choose to eat outside or under the covered salas. The atmosphere is timeless and very relaxing, and with such delicious food to share with your friends, the way Thai do, it’s an excellent opportunity to experience real Thailand.

What to Order

The menu is limited and changes according to the season and what’s on the market, which means that some dishes are up to what the chef will cook on that day. As it is southern food, some dishes can be spicy, and some local ingredients can be a little intense or unusually looking, but this is all the fun of real travelling! Be adventurous and open-minded; you will discover new culinary horizons.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
