“I am excited to be at Outrigger in Phuket because our concept at the new Feast restaurant is to present modern cuisine with innovative healthy options,” said Czeschka. “We will have an intriguing choice of mouth-watering dishes for diners who want pan-Asian, international and Thai cuisine. We won’t forget signature comfort dishes either.”
