If you are looking for traditional Italian cuisine and delicious pizzas in the area of Phuket Hospital, then look no further and head down to Crust! The venue has been providing fantastic lunches and dinners to hungry Phuketians for over five years now and has an excellent reputation.
You can easily spot the restaurant if you look for a series of building with Sino-Portuguese architecture, on the left-hand side right after passing in front of Index Living Mall in Phuket Town. There are a few parking spots available right in front of the venue, and some more located within Soi Bangyai, which connects with the back of the Phuket Hospital building.
The atmosphere is very clean and conveys a sense of relaxation from the minute you step in. Freshly made desserts are displayed over the counter so you can get a preview of how you will end the dining experience. Over the years, they received a lot of praise for their pizzas, which are made fresh using only the finest Italian ingredients. From the selection of mozzarella to the assortment of cold cuts, everything has been thought of for you to enjoy every bite of their delicious creations.
Crust also offers a selection of pasta with different sauces, from the classic Bolognese to the more elaborate Chorizo Carbonara and Truffle Alfredo. They also cater to vegetarians with a variety of fresh salads, such as the Caprese or the Citrus Arugula. The garlic bread was very “crusty”, too! Your lunch would not be completed without a pairing of your favorite wine, which is sold by the glass or by the bottle.
Bear in mind that the restaurant has limited seating capacity and therefore it is best to arrive a little bit earlier, especially if you are dining with a group of four people or more. The service is also worth mentioning, as all waiters/waitresses go above and beyond to ensure that you will have a pleasant time during your visit. The restaurant closes every Wednesday.
Crust is located opposite Index Living Mall, in Phuket Town, and is open from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm, closed on Wednesdays. For more information and bookings, please call +66 93 763 0318 or visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/crustphuket.
