Jadjan (จัดจ้าน), is actually the Thai word for strongly or intensely flavored. And so I already loved the name and philosophy of this restaurant before even going.

At Jadjan Restaurant (ร้านจัดจ้าน) in Phuket, Thailand, you will find a mix of Southern Thai / Central Thai food, and seafood on their menu. It’s a fantastic laid back meal experience, and Chef Dang, the owner and head Chef is skilled and so incredibly friendly.

In this post, I’m just going to quickly share the delicious food I ate.


Jadjan Restaurant (ร้านจัดจ้าน) – Phuket, Thailand

First of all, let’s quickly meet Chef Dang (or Danny as he calls himself) the owner and head Chef of Jadjan Restaurant (ร้านจัดจ้าน).

I got to chat with him a little bit as he was cooking and hear about his background. The first thing you will notice is that Chef Dang is extremely friendly and welcoming. He’s the type of chef that comes to say at every moment, or when he’s extremely busy in the kitchen, he still yells out a “hello” or “welcome,” to anyone coming in.


If you have a few minutes, watch the video above to watch Chef Dang’s cooking skills and all the food!

Chef Dang worked in 5 star hotel restaurants, including the Marriott for over 20 years. He even worked at Benihana in Texas at one point. But over 20 years ago, Chef Decided to open his own small restaurant in Phuket. And from hanging out with him in the kitchen for a little while, I can tell you with certainty that Chef Dang loves what he’s doing, and puts his love and care into everything he cooks.

Jadjan is also included in the Michelin Guide Phuket.


For me, the food was delicious, and I especially loved it as a family restaurant that everyone can enjoy. My wife loved the food, as did my son.

It’s a great family restaurant, delicious food, easy, laid back, and friendly.
