Deep thrills: Dine at Andasi, the world’s largest underwater restaurant in Phuket

If you like your view as much as you like your food, then this underwater restaurant is going to be your haven. Andasi restaurant & bar is the world’s largest underwater restaurant and Asia’s first underwater bar. It is built below the surface within the mall’s aquarium Aquaria Phuket that boasts over 51,000 aquatic animals from 300+ species.

Located in Central Phuket, the European-style seafood restaurant is one of its kind that serves delectable bite-sized dishes such as miso-glazed salmon, caviar, oysters, scallops, and Wagyu steak. Diners are entertained by the 300 species gliding everywhere, exhibiting an exquisite underwater display. Helming the kitchen is Chef Atanu Nath, who previously worked in London at Marco Pierre White restaurants; Steakhouse & Grill and Wheeler’s of St. James London. Andasi’s gourmet dining experience is European, but it also features local Thai ingredients.

Andasi is staking claim to the title of world’s largest underwater restaurant, the same tagline used by Under in Norway, which opened earlier this year. While Under’s seating capacity counts to 100, Andasi seats 120.

Visitors who don’t fancy fine-dining can visit the Aquaria Phuket aquarium, which is divided into different zones and explores both land and sea. Mythic Forest takes guests through a land of creatures from Thai folklore; and River Giants is billed as the world’s largest freshwater planted tank – home to Arapaima, Mekong Ray, and Mekong Giant Catfish.
