The 9th Floor Restaurant is located on the top floor of the Sky Inn Condotel off Rat-U-Thit Road in Patong. It’s a hidden treasure dedicated to the enjoyment of fine food with an excellent wine cellar, beautiful and well-trained waitresses as well as a warm and elegant ambiance reminiscent of a sophisticated members club.
For those who know it, The 9th Floor Restaurant is consistently rated as one of Phuket’s very finest dining establishment. The crowd is international and sophisticated with accents and languages from around the globe, contributing to the exciting buzz of conversation and energy that embraces you as the elevator doors open into the restaurant top floor space. The 9th Floor is one of the highest restaurants in Patong and it’s fair to say that the excellence of its food matches the loftiness of its location.
Entering the restaurant, one step from the elevator into an alluring space in which floor to ceiling glass windows overlook the myriad lights of Patong below with the Andaman Sea beyond. The walls are decorated with funky modern art; wine glasses glimmer in the soft lighting; and the beautiful black-clad waitresses slide sensually between the tables looking after the guests every need.
Sunset is a favorite time for the cognoscenti to be at the convivial bar sipping their favorite tipple from the huge range of cocktails, beers and wines while enjoying the international ambience and conversation and anticipating the gustatory pleasures that the evening will unfold.
Of course, creating a great restaurant starts with the food and here The 9th Floor Restaurant excels. The menu features an eclectic award-winning selection of Mediterranean, Alpine and Thai dishes, all of which use the finest local and imported ingredients and are cooked and served to perfection. The wine cellar is comprehensive with a great choice of both European and New World classics, plus plenty of up-and-coming labels from the developing wine regions. Prices for both the food and wines are very reasonable and of course, excellent wines are also available by the glass should one for some bizarre reason not wish to enjoy a full bottle! Rounding off the chubbiness of the 9th Floor’s appeal is the fine selection of cigars.
