Koh Phangan restaurants and dining scenes have a venue for every taste. If there is one common denominator that runs throughout the island of Koh Phangan it’s that each of its beaches has colourful and atmospheric restaurants. Beachside dining, whether it is local, Italian, Mexican, or even Halal, is undeniably enhanced by cool breezes, sand between the toes and stars twinkling above.
The Thai love of food is contagious and coupled with smiling hospitality dining out in Phangan is a memorable highpoint of many visitors’ holiday experience, although you should always keep in mind that this is Thailand, not London if you’re fussy about perfect service. Fine dining is most certainly not the order of the day on the island although there are a couple of worthy contenders. Fresh seafood, healthy vegetable dishes and out-and-out fast food are the way most eateries go here, some succeeding and others – well maybe they should stick to Thai cuisine. Speaking of which, Thongsala’s daily food market is hard to beat for genuine Thai food and a great cultural experience while simple chicken & rice food outlets abound.
