A great local restaurant in Phuket Town

One Chun Restaurant (One Chun means ‘Monday’) is one of the best Thai restaurants in Phuket Town. Serving southern Thai and uniquely Phuket cuisine without compromise. One Chun first succeeded with locals who are not easy to impress when it comes to their food. The young owner Khun Prang found the right formula: great food, reasonable price, fun atmosphere, excellent service and good location. Now you too can enjoy real Thai food the way we love it here.

One Chun received a ‘Bib Gourmand’ rating from the Phuket Michelin Guide. Bib Gourmand means ‘friendly establishments that serve good food at moderate prices.’

One Chun Phuket is fun and cosy with a family and friends atmosphere. A special mention about the creative retro decor with brick walls covered with old clocks, vintage radios, old television sets from the 60s and even an old cinema camera.

Thai food at One Chun Restaurant Phuket

But ultimately, what matters most is still the food! We went to One Chun several times: this is the real deal, Thai food as it should be. When you order, the staff will ask you how spicy you like it but make no mistake, for some dishes are known to be fierce, if you say ‘I like it spicy because I’m no beginner and I’m a real man!’ Get ready for a blast. You have to see how many locals enjoy the place to know this is the right place when it comes to southern food.

What to Eat at One Chun

We ordered all kinds of specialities but if you need help here are some of the ones we enjoyed as you can see in the photos:

Kang Poo

Curry crab served with cold thin rice vermicelli (390 Baht, which is cheaper than its neighbour Raya House)

Hor Mok Poo

a seafood dish featuring a blend of fish and crab cooked in a flavorful curry paste and coconut milk. (180 baht)

Nam Plik Koong Sod

a spicy Thai dipping sauce made with fresh chilli peppers and shrimp paste commonly served with steamed and fresh vegetables. The sauce is made with red chilli peppers, garlic, shallots, shrimp paste, lime juice, and sugar. (180 baht)

Moo Hong Phuket Style

a traditional southern Thai dish featuring braised pork belly cooked in a rich, flavorful sauce. Each home adds its own unique touch, resulting in variations in sweetness, texture, and pork cut sizes. One Chun's version is deliciously balanced, offering a satisfying taste that is not overly sweet and melts in the mouth. (265 baht)

Goong Rad Sauce Makham

Deep fried prawn in tamarind sauce. (320 Baht)

Yum Woon Sen

Yum Woon Sen is a Thai salad made with glass noodles (woon sen) combined with a variety of fresh vegetables, herbs, and shrimp or chicken, in a spicy dressing, made from lime juice, fish sauce, chili peppers, and garlic, resulting in a light and zesty salad.

Hedd Todd

Deep fried mushrooms.

Chao Guay Lam Yai

Chinese black jelly with longans, served on ice, with brown sugar on top.

Tom Khlong Pla Gao

a spicy and sour Thai fish soup made with pla gao (Siamese giant gourami), known for its aromatic broth infused with herbs, spices, tamarind paste, and roasted chili paste, creating a flavorful and balanced dish with added vegetables.

Moo Tod Nam Pla

crispy, deep-fried pork belly marinated in fish sauce. (150 baht)

O-Aew dessert

a traditional Thai dessert made with mung bean flour, agar agar (a type of gelatin), coconut milk, and sugar. The dessert has a jelly-like texture and is typically served with shaved ice and a variety of toppings such as sweet syrup, sweet corn kernels, jackfruit, water chestnuts, and basil seeds

Tuna Foo with Yum Mamuang

Deep-fried crispy Tuna fish with mango spicy salad (120 Baht, recommended)

Pak Miang Koong Siab Pad Khai – Stir-fried local green leaves with dried shrimp and eggs (150 baht)
Pla Tod Nam Pla + Yum Mamuang – Deep-fried red snapper with spicy mango salad (60 baht per 100 grams)
Kam Poo Pad Manao – Stir-Fried Crab with lime sauce, served with brown rice or rice berry (250 baht).

If you need help, the team speaks enough English to help you with ordering and will even suggest some dishes.

There is, of course, a lot more on the menu than what we listed here. The best is just to let your appetite and your eyes decide for you as we always do. Just remember: don’t always pick the things you already know, be daring! It’s more fun to try new things and maybe, just like me, you might discover here your new favourite dish!


One Chun Restaurant Phuket

On Sunday, the location is very convenient as it is precisely where the Phuket Walking Street Market starts at the intersection of Thalang Road and Thepkasattri Road. One Chun restaurant is perfect for a nice dinner before a visit to the Street Market. Also great for a break after a day of exploration of Phuket Town. If you drive a car, be aware that the parking space around the restaurant is minimal on Sundays. You can try to park on the perpendicular street ;).
