Black Ginger: The enchantment of true tastes of Phuket

The Slate's restaurant Phuket

Hailed by culinary specialists and lifestyle experts from around the globe as one of the best Thai food restaurant in the kingdom, Black Ginger enchants your senses not only by its magical Thai fusion cuisine concocted around authentic flavours of Phuket, but also by its amazing fairy-tale setting features from the furniture right up into your plate.

Black Ginger is indeed a modern masterpiece of ancient Thai decoration. Nested in the Slate hotel, formerly known as Indigo Pearl, the restaurant is set in a beautiful wooden mansion which features cutting edge contemporary design blended with enchanting old-world charm hovering over a luminescent lagoon.

Lead by critically acclaimed Chef Anongrat Meklai, or Chef Piak, who has cooked for the Thai Royal family, Black Ginger astonishes diners with an unforgettable experience of oriental spices, exquisite flavours delicately balanced and prepared with the freshest local ingredients, celebrating the authenticity of the island’s heritage.

Among the must-try, the Poh Pia Sod Phuket (Black Ginger’s special recipe): you roll your own fresh spring rolls and experiment with the flavors of garlic, bright coriander, crisp lettuce, bean sprouts and luxurious chili puree to surprise your palate, served with juicy crab, tender pork, traditional Thai pancakes and tamarind sauce.

We may also suggest the Gaeng Pou Bai Cha-Plu, southern style curry with lump crab meat, pungent cha-plu leaves and crushed garlic accompanied with traditional rice noodles and fresh local vegetables. And also the Pad Pak Mieng Goong Sieb, local mieng leaves stir-fried with smoked crispy shrimps, or the Pla Gao Thod, deep fried grouper served with garlic-pepper sauce or tangy chili sauce. But don’t miss the Goong Mangorn Yang, a grilled Canadian lobster (500 grams) served with tamarind and chilli-lime sauce.
