Located poolside at Pullman Phuket Panwa Beach Resort, Edge Beach Club is a comfortable and contemporary al fresco restaurant with a relaxed vibe. With the tagline “From the soil to the pan” the restaurant’s focus is to use local Thai ingredients in favorite European and Mediterranean dishes.
The menu at Edge Beach Club is impressive. There’s fusion food, loads of vegan options, pasta & pizza, crisp salads, burgers & sandwiches and simple grills using fresh seafood and premium cuts of meat as well as classic Thai favorites. Feeling adventurous, we decide on Chicken Tikka Masala & Dal Makhini from the dedicated Indian menu, the 4 Cheese pizza and the Panwa Wagyu Burger.
Considering that the restaurant is packed, it doesn’t take long for our food to arrive and we dig in to our late lunch.
The Indian dishes taste 100% authentic and are absolutely divine. The Dal Makhini, which is a curry of slow cooked black lentils and a hint of spice, is incredibly rich and creamy, and the Chicken Tikka Masala is perfectly spiced - the tomato and onion sauce has a tangy flavor. Both dishes pair well with the steamed Basmati rice.
The 4 Cheese pizza is topped with Scamorza, Gorgonzola, Talleggio and Mozzarella. The homemade crust is light and crispy, and of course, the cheese gooey and oozy. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good pizza.
The Panwa Wagyu Beef Burger is so scrumptious! It’s an Australian Wagyu patty piled high with streaky bacon, fresh lettuce, Monterrey Jack cheese, and served with French Fries and a selection of ketchup, Tabasco sauce and aioli. The burger itself is extremely juicy and flavorful, and we devour it while admiring the beautiful views of the beach from the restaurant.
Even though our tummies are full, we order dessert. We choose the Baked Apple Tart & Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream, a puff pastry baked with apple caramel, and the Dark Bitter Vegan Chocolate Layer, a small slice of cake made of 63% Couverture Chocolate, coconut ganache, cocoa powder and raspberry sorbet. Both desserts were decadent, but the Dark Bitter Vegan Homemade Chocolate Layer was my favorite.
Edge Beach Club is definitely worth checking out, especially if you’re in the mood for something new or different. My dining partner and I had a nice time here, and I look forward to visiting again.
