Someone we met told us we had to take a look in the Dolphon restaurant. We had walked down to the end of the beach a couple times but never really noticed....when we went in through the apron of leaves and trees there was a little uptopian restaurant, lounge, and bungalow resort....very small really, but the sitting areas were unique and well kept....say 5 or 6 different little areas you could sit, chill, eat and drink....the place in run by a european lady...scanidinavian maybe...thai husband....cute little son running here and there. Menu had a good mix of healthy hearty items including antipast, pasta, sandwiches and stir frys....we had a couple shakes for flavour which were very good as well....we wanted to go back another time but never got the chance....Nice for a mid day snack....food service closes at 2 or 3pm I think.
Favorite Dish: A mint energy shake...refreshing!
Crushed mint leaves too!
Each bugalow resrot has a restaurant...on different evenings at different places you can have seafood caught that day (so they say).....pick what you want and they grill it right there...we didnt do this evey night but it was good as a treat...and if the fish looked fresh.
Great food! Dreamland had a decent evening BBQ....simply select the fish, seafood or meat...add corn or baked potato as well....real good. We would order 15 or 20 minutes before sitting down at the restaurant and then go over when ready....add on menu items as well...all in all pretty inexpensive...well more than an order of pad thai but cheap none the less.....ate the BBQ almost every night.
Favorite Dish: The Chicken (if you can believe it) was a fav...the white snapper good to, and of course the prawns....80-100 baht ea.
Enjoy with a Singha or a SPY cooler (Amy choice)
If you are staying on Than Nai Pan Yai, You GOTTA have one of this guys banana pancakes. they are sooo tastey and Cheap. If you don't like bananas, he has a few other options to satisfy your desires. Enjoy!!!
Favorite Dish: Banana pancake with chocolate syrup
Service has always been less than average but the food makes up for it. As cliche as it is to go to Thailand and eat pizza, sometimes you just need something your stomach is familiar with....the pizza here was awesome...thin crust and many different varieties. You can catch the tube or people watch on the lane way.
Favorite Dish: Pizza ...decent shakes and lemon juice.
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!
Its one of the best restaurant in tongsala, even in ko phangan, Just few blocks from 7-eleven and they serve Thai Food and Western Food, both you can get in this restaurant and Tasty!! It opens from 10 AM till 2 AM. T and Bim, the owner, they are really friendly people.
the decoration is really unique, i bet you won't find any place like that in ko phangan.... so.... be there and try it.
30 baht...better yet...a sign above the chefs cart "welcome tourist"....fresh made, dough, bananas and chocolate sauce...eaten with a tooth pick...
A great little snack during the day....other varieties as well! Say Hi!
Where the boats come in you can get a free boat out to a restaurant/bar thats in the middle of the sea, Thats just floating out there. It was great. The boat to it is goes from the main pint you enter the island, haad rin i think.
Very chilled and the food was very tasty. They have a hole in the floor that they showed us which had a net in the water to catch food so if you liked some seafood you can pick one from the hole and theres your dinner.
Brilliant and very peaceful.
You can kind of see it in the picture.
Favorite Dish: my thai favourite chilli and basil chicken
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.
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.
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!!
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
Just off the main street in Thong-sala they have every night a square where all the food vendors set up there various food carts and stalls.
Each vendor has thier own section of outdoor chairs and tables for thier own customers.
You can buy your food fresh and they cook it for you right there while you wait ..or in my case drink.
You can get everything at this food square from spicey Thai food to fried chicken and of coarse fresh seafood.
One particular vendor stood out to me as better,fresher ,and cleaner than all the rest and that was "Prapai Seafood"
Favorite Dish: You can choose here from a variety of fresh fish.
They have Red and white snapper as well as a fish they call "Kampong' and another they call "Saba" which I'm not sure what thier English name is.
There is also Mussels and Prawns and a variety of fresh vegtables as well.
Very fresh very tasty and quite cheap.
I had BBQ snapper several times from here (both Red and White) and it was always very tasty.
This restaurant/bar is great.
It has a variety of bean bags, thai roll out beds hamak chairs etc, to lazy about on.
Owned by an English guy.who lets people choose the dvd's to watch. Food good. Spents hours lying around in there. Great
Favorite Dish: I remember the burgers being good
