Dinner with a view at Tunk Ka Cafe

Tunk Ka Cafe is one of our favourite restaurants in Phuket Town, a long-established hillside place beautifully built on top of Khao Rang Hill, with striking panoramic views of Phuket city. Tunk Ka Cafe is a romantic place, with three separate terraces framed with large trees, and a nice breeze flowing through always keeps the place cool.

A shaded wooden walkway leads from the top of the hill to the restaurant through bushes of bamboo. It was renovated and improved several times in the past years, and obviously, they know how to make the best use of the surrounding natural elements and lights.

Tunk Ka offers almost a 180 degrees view, so everyone can enjoy a good panorama all the way to Cape Panwa and Chalong over Phuket Town. You can even see the Big Buddha if you know where to look. But the main reason to come is dinner of course, or lunch if you prefer. Their Thai food is really nice, the menu extensive and original and all written in English. It’s not really cheap but still affordable. Service is very good, fast and polite.

What to Eat at Tunk Ka

What we ordered… That was not an easy decision since the menu is so tempting:

  • Tom Yam Goong Maphrao (the well-known spicy sour soup with prawns, but this version has coconut in it)
  • Kaeng Som (some very local smelly dish)
  • Pla Sumlee Tod (fried cotton Fish with Mango salad)
  • Pak Liang (fried leaves that look like the tree next to our table, mixed with dried shrimp.)

The Panorama

There is a popular panoramic deck above the restaurant, but Tunk Ka Cafe has built a set of terraces for guests to have drinks before dinner, but today these have mostly become selfie playgrounds.

Useful Tip

It’s a bit obvious but go there around 6 pm to get a table near the edge, Tunk Ka Cafe is popular and all the front tables and wooden terraces are where everyone wants to sit. If you want to try another angle, there is another restaurant with a different view nearby, called ‘Khao Rang Breeze‘ but the food at Tunk Ka Restaurant is clearly better.
