Wilai Restaurant

Local style eating

What we say: 3.5 stars

While Phuket Town is filled with local spots just like this, Wilai is unique because it has been holding its own among the Chinese shophouses that are turning into chic cafes and restaurants.

Totally no frills, fan-cooled Wilai Restaurant is decked out with plastic chairs and metal tables and makes up for the lack of trimmings by offering good, cheap Thai food. Owner Wilai was an English teacher in the past and speaks excellent English — her husband runs Kopitiam next door.

Popular with locals and visitors longing for curries, which are proudly displayed at the front of the restaurant, also on the menu are Thai soups, Hokkien noodles and some Western breakfast items. All up a good spot for a budget meal.
