Apsara & Tamnak Thai Restaurant

Dover | (246) 435-5446

Apsara & Tamnak Thai Restaurant is located within Dover, near the heart of St. Lawrence Gap. If the thought of Indian food combined with Thai makes your mouth water, consider this restaurant on your Barbados getaway.

The two restaurants are located within Morcambe House, a 200 year old historic home. Tamnak Thai is located on the first floor and offers a formal dining room as well as a space that is much more relaxed, open and breezy. One level down on the ground floor is Aspara, which is set in the house's original dining room and looks out over the lushly manicured garden. Each restaurant features the decor of their respective country of food origin.


Diamond Valley | (246) 423-6220

Zen, a part of The Crane Residential Resort, is located in Diamond Valley, a town in St. Philip Parish; 8.6 miles to the east-northeast of St. Lawrence Gap. Pay a visit or two to Diamond Valley if you're a fan of Indian cuisine, but particularly sushi.

The appetizer menu features delicious prawn tempura or traditional miso soup. The sushi list is extensive and includes hand rolls or six piece sushi selections.

Fusion Restaurant and Lounge

St. Michael Parish | (246) 436-1538

Positioned in St. Michael Parish, fairly close to Bridgetown, Fusion Restaurant and Lounge is on the premises of South Beach Resort & Vacation Club, and is a logical choice for people thinking about exploring this part of Barbados. St. Lawrence Gap is approximately a mile and a half (approximately two and a half kilometers) to the east-southeast. Travelers that desire sushi will particularly like stopping here during a visit to St. Michael Parish.

The exotic, modern decor makes Fusion unique. The stone walls are decorated in unusual art work, and the furniture is elegant and comfortable with clean lines, and the dim lighting sets the tone for a magical evening.

Juma's Restaurant

Speightstown | (246) 432-0232

Juma's Restaurant is located near the middle of Speightstown. The fresh taste of fish and Thai flair make a nice pair at this fun eatery.

The main part of the restaurant is located on the first floor overlooking Speightstown Beach. It has an African theme and is perfect relaxed and comfortable. They are not at all about formality and stuffiness here. On the ground floor, there is a deli with a few tables out on the terrace right by the beach. Seating is split up with 15 tables in the restaurant, eight tables in the deli, and 11 tables on the outside terrace.
