Located right next to the main road, Ao Nang Buffet Restaurant offers flavorful food for a reasonable price. For just 499 THB you will get access to international dishes, Thai BBQ, Japanese sushi, Seafood, seasonal fruits, and much more. One free drink is included in the price.
You’ll also be glad to know that there is no time limit here. So you can chill out, get stuffed, and leave happy without feeling rushed. The restaurant has an open air and an air conditioning area. We would recommend sitting outside while enjoying the live music!
2. E-San Seafood
If you’re craving delicious Thai food, you’ll be glad to know that E-san food over-delivers. This small and cozy restaurant is operated by a lovely Thai couple. Every dish is freshly prepared and made to order. The presentation of food is enticing too.
You can get crab, fish, shrimp, squid, chicken, curry, and many other popular Thai dishes here. The food is delicious and the attentive staff doesn’t hurt either. The prices are decent too, considering this restaurant is on the main road.
3. Cafe 8.98
Cafe 8.98 takes things to the next level. From their name you may think it’s simply a coffee shop, but we can assure you it’s much more than that. This cafe focuses on health foods.
Not only does this place offer a trendy selection of vegan & vegetarian dishes like breakfast bowls and clean smoothies, but also traditional comfort foods like Beer Battered Fish ‘n’ Chips, Chilli Beef Nachos, and Gourmet Hamburgers.
Perfect place to come for a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their menu is massive. You can probably come here every day and try something new. The food is fresh and clean. Coffee is pretty decent too. We love the atmosphere here, it’s very welcoming. There is a reason why this place has over 1,000 review on Google.
4. Carnivore Steak & Grill
Craving some mouth watering steaks? Carnivore Steak & Grill will make you feel less homesick with their incredible dishes. This restaurant offers high quality steak with generous portions and a good selection of sides like potatoes, salads, and bread.
The ambiance here is quite nice and cozy. The road isn’t as busy as the main strip, so you can expect a much more peaceful time here. The presentation of food is something out of a food magazine so you can rest assured your photos will look beautiful. The staff will go out of their way to make sure you have a great experience here. I highly recommend this place.
