Located on the highest peak of Kata hills in Phuket, Wok Pagoda Kitchen is where finest Thai and Japanese fusion dishes are prepared and offers some breath-taking view of Chalong Bay with its marina filled with yachts.
What’s So Awesome About It
Wok Pagoda Kitchen has a fusion menu made of Thai, Asian and western dishes which are a brainchild of internationally renowned chefs. Most of the cooking is done on a charcoal grill that is traditional to Thai cooking and is known to retain the original flavours of the ingredients. Moreover, the ingredients they use are fresh, locally sourced, and are presented beautifully in traditional woks with quantities that can be shared. The menu relies a lot on seafood and fish, but there are enough options for meat lovers and vegetarians too.
Apart from the cuisine another big reason to visit Wok Pagoda Kitchen is the ambience. It has an indoor and outdoor section with a décor creatively in sync with the cuisine, related to the wok. We recommend the open air pavilion where you can eat a scrumptious meal while overlooking a nearly 180 degree view of the Chalong Bay. Since the restaurant is nestled on a steep slope of the hilly area of Phuket, you can get further and clearer views, even up to Phi Phi Islands. All in all, the setting and cuisine make for a romantic fine dining meal.

What’s The Catch
Since the Wok Pagoda Kitchen is fairly new, the staff and service are not as impeccable and they may have difficulty understanding your requirement.
You will find a lot of the main course dishes to be typically of Thai flavour and available in a lot of restaurants, so if you are looking only for a quick delicious meal, you can give Wok Pagoda Kitchen a miss.
Go there for an early lunch and sit in the outdoors section to relish the views of the entire Chalong Bay.
Wok Pagoda Kitchen is located at a 10-minute drive from Kata Noi beach.
