During my stay in Koh Phangan, friends recommended me the Delicate & Sens restaurant in a coconut grove at the Coconut Lane Villas resort.
The restaurant offer food only for lunch. It had just opened and we were one of the first clients.
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and at a very reasonable price. We only paid 180 THB / dish!!
We chose the Asian noodle soup with mixed vegetables and fish
and Koh Phangan squid, Japanese mushrooms and cajanus, white butter with Thaï basilic.
We loved it, it was beautiful.
We met the chef who is a young French and we felt his passion through his fine food that we could describe as original and refined.
We had a great time in this peacefull place. After the lunch we could enjoy in the beautiful pool.
For our next visit to Koh Phangan, the appointment is made!
Favorite Dish: My best advice is don't miss the home baked sweets for the tea time!
The location is beautiful with amazing sunsets. The atmosphere in the lounge / restaurant is really relaxed and romantic. Drinks and food are very cheap but original and high standard. The staff is very helpful and friendly and can give you good tips about parties and things to do on the Island.
After a work out in the Fitness and chill out in the Sauna, go enjoy your breakfast, lunch or diner in the lounge and watch during happy hour the sunset!
Wow, wow and wow
Favorite Dish: Creen curry and Masaman...mmmm The best on the Island and really original..!
This is a great place.
It's so clean and comfortable to sit. The food is canadian/american style. Amazing burgers (they call them SEXY!!!) Really good chicken wings and pork ribs. Real fries and mayos that they make there. The salads are to die for and they also got a small variety of tasty thai food.
I basically had almost everything on the menu.
The ambiance is quite chill. Music goes from loungy to alternative but never too loud.
Free pool table and some games and old magazines. Oh and a big screen tv showing sports, travel channels, movies depending on the mood.
I think they are always closed on tuesdays and they open at 5pm.
Its on Haad Yao beach just opposite the famous 7/11.
Go there and enjoy. The staff and owners are great too.
Food was great here, very high standard for such reasonable prices. Staff was very friendly and welcoming, to my girlfriend and I, and the rope swing was insane. Its free to use, and is sooo scary, but good fun, highly recommend going to this restaurant in the day for all the water activities, although i havent been at night yet.
Favorite Dish: The Pizza was great, they done have set Pizza dishes, but you have to customise yours instead. I had a Bolognaise, Peppers and Onion Pizza, that was absolutely tasty!
Quite a small italian restaurant, only 16 to 20 seats.
I think it's a new restaurant, the thai woman who makes the pizzas will welcome you, propose you drinks, make pizzas for you, chat with you, offer some bruchettas and wine if you come often to her restaurant, and, she's thai and makes pizzas, the world is upside down now it seems, and the pizzas she makes are actually made from fresh ingredients and are well cooked, and for the price she asks, it's good to have some pizzas when you are fed up of 2 weeks of thai cuisine.
The restaurant is clean and i would say half occidental half thai architecture, i say that concerning the building.
She really deserves to be known further more to at least have a constant flow of customers as she's a bit hidden next to the kodak shop in thong sala main street.
I would recommend it to anyone, as i am confident she will take care of them really good.
I hope she will stay the same as she gets known and have success.
Briefly, i recommend it.
The price range i put is for the whole thing, from entry to dessert with 1 to 3 drinks, so count less if youre going to get only the main dish.
Favorite Dish: Bruschettas and pizzas.
She also cooked us a salmon steak which was really good too, and offered some bruchettas quite often, and some wine, real good wine for thailand, and she is a good italian cooker for being thai i can tell !
My Phangan Resort: The bunglow I stayed. They provide VERY GOOD food. This is my favourite dish: Green Curry Chicken Rice. The bunglow owner know me, I must eat once everyday!
Still can smell the taste when I close my eyes. Yummy.............! Guess how much is that? Only 70 Bhat!
a Japanese couple open this restaurant.
You can enjoy real Japanese food.
My friend recommend to me here.
"If you miss Japanese food, must be nice place"....that was right.
Nice ASAHI draft beer with iced big glass.
Sashimi of salmon and tuna with WASABI.
they don't have SUSHI, but if you like SUSHI, they will serve SUSHI BOWL.
Japanese Curry,, TERIYAKI,,, and so on. many real Japanese home cooking.
quite clean, people kind(they can speak English,thai, Japanese)
good for couple, family, only 1 also... can take away.
they open from evening till 21:00. Sunday close.
Favorite Dish: my special is ONIGIRI: rice ball !!
I bring back ONIGIRI to my place then lay down a hammock on beach.
that was perfect!!! I didn't know No.1 food on the beach was ONIGIRI.
of course!! seaweed was from sea! the wind from sea add a little salt more.
anyway Kaito is my best place is koh-phangan. I miss their Onigiri.
We loved luna lounge, it is the perfect restaurant, great thai food, wines, interesting menu and lovely coctails - they are famous for their mojito. Makes a good contrast to resorts and the basic thai food shacks, offering comfort, wonderful service and good food. Also very comfy sofas and nice music and decor.
Favorite Dish: Phi Phi chicken- Chicken breast stuffed with mango salsa, served with delicious mashed potato and stirfry veg. Their lamb massaman curry is also fantastic.
a great little burger bar for those times when you feel like some thing other than thai food.
the mumma opens the bar at about 5am although she was open at 4am after we got back from the full moon party. we also booked our ride to the full moon party here.
look for the great signs here : handsome gas.... make your bike go fast.
handsome clothes wash... make your clothes clean and smell good for 10 years
Favorite Dish: i only had the chicken burger but it was very good
Me and my friends went to Nics Restaurant few days ago. What a difference to the other places in Had Rin. No loud TV! Excellent Food, great Ambience, quick and friendly service. We had the best Mojito in Thailand.
Favorite Dish: Try the XXL-Pizza and the Tapas-Sets, they are deli and not expensive at all!!
Becareful.....if /when you are trying to boost your morrale or some sort of stomach ailment you think needs some good old western food watch out for the pizza or pasta.
Anyone whos been to SEA before knows how this one goes....youre starving but only for something familiar........I dont know....the pizza looks good - theyve got many varieties.....yummmy........
Pizza arrives and its a piece of dough in some state of over cooked, undercooked or even raw.
Worst part is yet to come.....take a bite.....
Wait a minute the sauce tastes funny.....did I put ketchup on this thing???/What did I order?
Low and behold the tomato sauce on the pizza in all its layered glory, is Heinz Ketchup.
Sometimes its a blend and sometimes 100% pure ketchup! Nothing to wolf down on a hungry stomach....enough just to send back and go with the fried noodles or rice.
This also applies to pasta.....nothing like the most expensive meal youve had in days going better as a side for grilled cheese. For some reason they just cant seem to make decent tomato sauces - or even at least tolerable.
NOTE: this isint for or at every place.....if you really need to eat one of these dishes best to ask around to others first.....make sure you inquire about the sauce.
When we returned Jan 08' on the evening of the FMP Casablanca was packed like any other restaurant. We looked across the street and there was another Casablanca restaurant.....same restaurant PT 2. WE were all able to find a seat in group of 6 and had our fav dish. Same type of serve and atmosphere. The menu was a carbon copy of the visits past.
Favorite Dish: The Pizza.....only if you like thin crust.
Cost 180B-200B ea.
The restaurant at Sandy Beach Bungalows is very good .They serve both Thai & Western food and at night you can eat fresh seafood BBQ on the beach or in the chill out area with low tables sitting on the floor.You can just help yourself to drinks and just write it down on your bill.There is also a movie room upstairs with lots of DVDs for guest if your feeling bored.The staff here are very nice and they can arrange transport to the pier when you leave just tell them the night before.
Favorite Dish: big beef/chicken BBQ,Barracuda, fruit shakes.
There is a lot of bad food in Koh Phangan. Most restaurants have very little creativity or just stamp out typical fare that is catering to farang tastes rather than real Thai food. I often stay in Thong Nai Pan Yai and the top picks are:
1) Na Thong restaurant- this is on the main road on the left as you come into Thong Nai Pan Yai. Most locals eat here. Standard (but good) Thai food.
2) Boozy's Deli- run by an israeli couple- very fresh, high quality food prepared right in front of you. Steaks, pastas, middle eastern food, desserts. A little expensive but worth the cost.
3) Chai Ya Restaurant/Bar- great European style dishes like Steak Au Poivre. Also decent Thai food. Friendly staff, ask for Mai who also makes paintings and tattoos.
4) The Isaan shop- in the daytime, back behind the main road. Cheap and good isaan food such as somtam (papaya salad), namtok moo (spicy pork salad), grilled chicken, sticky rice.
5) Memory Restaurant- off the main road. Decent noodle soup and thai dishes.
Nearby in Noi Beach you might also try Ban Pong's for great food, and Que Pasa for Mexican dishes that are surprisingly pretty good. Also recommended is Rasta Baby Restaurant.
It's hard to find halal restaurant on the island.. i could only find 3 places selling halal food.. baik korang bwk maggi or dapur kecik..bole gak makan sadin or telor..kat tongsala ada pasar malam sebelah 7E..sit ada makcik jual ayam pulut.. kat Don Sak ada satu kedai jual nasik.. kat sebelah 7E Don Sak ada minah jual cucuk.. tu jer laa yg ada..tak pun korang makan jer "mushroom" ngan nasik..best woo..
