What Restaurants are in the Phuket Michelin Guide 2022?

Having Michelin Restaurants in Phuket since 2019 proves that Phuket has reached a new level on the international culinary stage. The island is evolving fast and in many directions. While it might not always please those who loved it 20 years ago, the island offers now a vast range of experiences. We love Thai food, seafood and great food in general. We frequently travel the world, and food sits high on our travel experience.

Michelin Restaurants in Phuket: 1 Star Michelin at Pru at Trisara Phuket

We frequently use the Michelin Guide when in Bangkok or overseas, so we are quite familiar with their concept and selection criteria. We might not always agree because taste and experiences are unique to each of us; however, in the vast majority, Michelin is on target. So since we reviewed and rated many local restaurants in Phuket, we were curious to see how their list would compare to ours, and the result was surprisingly close.



What is the meaning of Stars, Bibs and Plates in the Michelin Guide?

If you don’t yet know about it, Phuket Michelin Guide rates restaurants mainly in 3 ways. The stars are the best known, followed by the BIB Gourmands and the Michelin Plates, which are more confusing.
By now, you all know that only one restaurant (Pru at Trisara) received a star in the Phuket Michelin Guide, and it was a pretty big deal. But in our mind, the BIBs and Plates are more fun because they are more casual and affordable.

What does it take for a restaurant to get Michelin Stars?

Michelin Star – Restaurant Assessment Criteria: Quality of the products, mastery of flavour and cooking techniques, the personality of the chef in his cuisine, value for money, consistency between visits

What is a Bib Gourmand restaurant?

Bib Gourmand means a good quality menu for a modest price.

What is a Michelin plate restaurant?

Michelin Plate is a sign of excellent food (and a chance to move up to get a star in the following years.)
