Tamachart Restaurant in Phuket City has got to be the most unusual, out-of-the-ordinary eatery this side of Bangkok.
The word tamachart translates into English as 'natural’ and many people in Phuket use the English word when discussing this oddly fitted out Thai-Chinese eating place.
Tamachart is a veritable crazy house filled to the rafters with old valve radios, sculpted masks, seashell lamps, hanging plants, fish tanks made out of TVs and computer monitors. Try the steamed sea bass in lemon sauce, which comes especially recommended.
Open: Daily from 10.30 am to 11 pm
