Perched high on a Kamala hillside, with spectacular views across Kamala Bay, Casa Boho is an enchantingly stylish restaurant and entertainment lounge across two floors, combining bohemian ambience with a blend of cool tunes and fascinating dining choices influenced, primarily, by South/Central America.
As the Kamala sunset approaches, chill out on one of the luxurious pool-side daybeds, sipping your choice of beverage from a vast range of options, which could include one of Casa Boho's mocktail specialities. We went for Earl Grey Lychee and Flower & Mint. Both refreshing creations, the aroma and flavour of Earl Grey stood out, with just subtle hints of lychee and lemon in the background. Cool mint was the predominant taste, with just a trace of flower and lemon to give the flavour depth.
Next it was time for the main event. You have the option to dine lounging on a day bed beside the infinity pool or at a more conventional table setting under cover. We chose the latter. I tucked into Casa Boho Ceviche, based on seabass with a vast array of ingredients, producing a delightfully zingy/spicy experience with warm/cold contrasts. For me this was the highlight of the meal and absolutely the best ceviche I’ve tasted outside Peru. My dining partner went for Chicharrón de Pescado from the menu’s Tapas selection. The crispy thin slices of seabass served with salsa and a lime/chili dip provided the perfect counterpoint to the ceviche; sharing appetizers is recommended!
For our main course, my partner opted for Blackened Salmon with Papaya Mojo & Guacamole. Cooked to tender perfection, and bringing a Cajun tang to the table, the salmon was exquisite, the sweet potato purée, salsa and guacamole complementing each other in a truly international mélange. My choice made for another stark contrast. Arroz con Mariscos is a slow-cooked Peruvian seafood dish taking its cue from risotto and paella – both of which I find irresistible. The sumptuous Casa Boho version came with scallops, mussels, prawns and blue crab – slow-cooked in a fragrant fish stock. Luxuriously satisfying.
We finished up with Churros con Chocolate and Arroz con Leche (rice again!) The insanely yummy churros were served up with chocolate sauce and sheep milk gelato while the Mexican rice pudding, infused with vanilla, cinnamon and citrus and served with mango was pure heaven for this rice aficionado.
Casa Boho is a venue and a kitchen created by an imaginative team, led by Columbian Chef Miguel, to delight all your senses. The majestic sea view, the spectacular sunsets, the warm ambiance, the welcoming, friendly and truly efficient service team and, of course, the inspired eclectic menu – the first-of-its-kind in Phuket – all combine to make this restaurant one of that select few: a must-try for Phuket residents and tourists alike.
