Cuisine in Koh Phangan – The Best Eateries in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan is one of the most famous islands that Thailand has to offer, and has been mentioned in stories such as The Beach by Alex Garland and songs like Vision in Blue by Ace of Base.


Handsome Sandwiches

If you'd like to kickstart your Koh Phangan foodie adventure with some incredible incarnations of familiar indulgences, then this is an ideal place to start. Do not be fooled by the simplistic demeanour of the establishment since it contains what many claim to be the finest burgers in Koh Phangan. The patties are cooked to perfection, the salads are made from freshly cut vegetables and the buns are warm and crisp. The entire eatery is run by two very hard-working ladies who are known for their warm hospitality and helpfulness when it comes to anything you might need in Koh Phangan from transportation to laundry.


The Bistro @ The Beach

Now to begin your gentle passage into the realm of true Thai cuisine. This is one of the more exclusive ¬¬Koh Phangan restaurants and is located at Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas. The cuisine available here is fairly diverse, offering both Thai delicacies as well as international options. One of the most popular dishes of the restaurant is a red lobster curry fused with lime, thai herbs and coconut cream and is called 'Chu Chi Goong Mong Korn'. The name alone makes the dish worthy of sampling.


Ying Ying's Kitchen

For an absolutely unbridled Thai food experience, one of the best choices is Ying Ying's Kitchen. Everything about this restaurant is traditional, including the decor which consists of tables and chairs built out of bamboo. All of the restaurant's cuisine is meticulously prepared by Ying Ying with care and attention to ensure the flavours are at their best. The quality of the food, as well as the hospitality of the owner has earned this restaurant a great deal of fame in Koh Phangan.


House People

This is one of the newest additions to the Koh Phangan restaurant scene, having opened its doors only in the beginning of 2015. The decor of the restaurant is striking with wooden decor, enveloped by plants and situated under a tall straw canopy. Visitors enjoy the natural and cool vibe of the establishment and consistently rank the staff as being friendly and attentive. The food is also consistently met with critical acclaim, along with the prices since the rates are very affordable. The same goes for the drinks as well where guests can enjoy a two for 1 deal on cocktails during happy hour.


Fisherman's Restaurant

Despite the humble name this restaurant serves some absolutely breathtaking cuisine, including incredible takes on western dishes. Along with some Thai specialties, the restaurant serves up Fish 'n' Chips, Thai-Western fish cakes, barbequed ribs and freshly prepared fish pie. The Fisherman's Restaurant is a veteran in the restaurant scene of Koh Phangan and has been around since 1997. It was established by Chef Lek, who was born into a humble fishing family. The cuisine is prepared with the freshest of ingredients and offers a great selection of wines and cocktails to accompany your food.
