Not an easy restaurant to find situated at the end of a little Soi and across a car park before a dumpy little confined elevator ride to the 9th floor.
A different world on entry to the Restaurant with beautiful table settings and uninterrupted views of Patong by night. A brigade of lovely hostesses waiting to make your night enjoyable.
We had Beef Cheek, Sea Bass, Parpadella and Lamb chops all of which were nicely presented with taste to match. A nice Sav. Blanc accompanied our meal and we followed up with desert.
Certainly worth a visit and I would recommend.

We wanted to splurge a little and get a nice treat. It is certainly pricey and not in a cheap range. Food was tasty and view was great. Service solid, no issues but with no wow factor, which is why only 4 stars for the price we paid. In anyway, we would recommend to visit if you want a special experience.

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. Even our taxi driver had a little trouble finding it but it was worth finding.
View through the opened stack window was great, looking over Patong rooftops and watching cranes still working at 9pm!
Service was exemplary with an abundance of (very pretty) staff. Despite some previous TA reviews questioning the food, our three course meal (6 separate dishes) was excellent and we couldn't really fault any of the courses. The menu is extensive which for me was a little off putting, as great restaurants seem to specialise in a particular style of cuisine. Food choices were mostly European and Thai. For mains I had a Bouillabaisse in an excellent stock, whilst hubby had breaded chicken escalopes, presented as a stack of 3-quite unusual. They boasted an extensive wine list with price ranges from reasonable to "What the..."
We booked ahead and had a great window seat, the only downside was a group of 8 rowdy men at a nearby table.
The restaurant style is not suitable for children.

Dear Jenny,

First of all thank you very much for your nice review about The 9th Floor.

I am very happy to read that you enjoyed both service and food. Our waitresses are well and frequently trained to provide you the best service possible, and our kitchen brigade is composed of passionated workers executing under Chef Anthony's hand.
Indeed, our location is not easy to find but as you mentioned, "it worth it". We want to be the "Hidden Gem" staying a side of the boiling streets of Patong.

Once again thanks very much for your time to write a review about us, and we are looking forward to welcome you back at The 9th Floor during your next stay in town !

Culinary yours,

TOMASINI Benjamin

On top of building just outside of busy road.
International food,great views,great for romantic dinner.
Not expensive for What deliverys.
I'm Italian myself of course I didn't get pasta in a fusion place.
Staff were nice and polite.
Good wine and liquor list.

Dear Miciopi,

Grazie mile for your very nice review about The 9th Floor !

I really do understand what you mean talking about the idea of entering an "in ruin" building to reach a fancy location, I love it too ! The gap between the outside of the building and The 9th Floor itself is so big that you ever wonder if the elevator didn't went to another building when you was going up to the 9th' ! Unfortunately not everybody share the same amusement as us and fortunately for the majority of our guests, the building is now getting totally refreshed. Within a couple a days it will look much better and will finally match with The 9th Floor quality decor standards.
As you underlined, our restaurant is a great place to raise yourself on the top of Patong's bay for a romantic and relaxing fine dinning experience, pushing apart the craziness of the surrounding suburbs.
Our average meal is around 25USD - which I agree is more expensive than the rest of the city and the country - but you get a wide choice of very good quality products, cooked to perfection, in on of the highest and finest open space overlooking Patong's bay and the all served by a talented front of house team.
Also as you wrote, we are proud of our wine cellar (300+ references form all around the world) and our bar offering a large and fine selection of spirits.

Once again, thanks very much for your very good comment, all the team is working hard to please you and making your experience unforgetable.
We are looking forward to welcome you back at The 9th Floor during your next stay in town !

I had first visited 9th floor 4 years ago on my first trip to Phuket and wanted to make a trip back there this year as I had great memories of the dinner experience there. Once again, my expectations were surpassed. Made a reservation for myself and a friend through their website and had a great window side seat waiting for us upon arrival. The service is absolutely second to none and the food was nothing short of amazing.

I am not by any means a 'fancy' restaurant regular, but the 9th Floor restaurant would rank up there with the best restaurants I have visited all over the world. The view is amazing (it is on the 9th floor as you have probably already figured out) and is open air, with a wonderful breeze and comfortable temperatures in the evenings. The glass railings make for an unobstructed view.

The cold cut appetizer was absolutely melt in your mouth delicious and the tenderloin steak main course was cooked to perfection and amazing. My friend had the pork cordon bleu and also loved it. All of this for the cost of an average meal back home. It would be considered expensive by Thai standards, but for two of us to eat including an appetizer, 2 main courses and four drinks, all for under $120 Canadian, it is a bargain!

I would highly recommend trying the 9th Floor restaurant if you find yourself in Phuket
