Ao Thong Nai Pan Noi & Yai Restaurants

Where and What to Eat in Ao Thong Nai Pan Noi & Yai

Restaurants on the two Thong Nai Pan beaches tend towards simple, bamboo-and-thatch genre serving grilled seafood or western food with a few serving both. There are even Issan (northeastern Thailand) eateries with barbecued chicken and glutinous rice so, with a bit of looking around, you’re sure to find the right place. Dining on the beach itself is also possible and extremely enjoyable.

Time passes slowly in this part of the world and you’ll sometimes find that this is reflected in the restaurant service, where a noticeably tardy meal is accompanied by a cheery and disarming smile. “Sit back and relax” announces a handwritten sign in one local restaurant and this encapsulates life at Thong Nai Pan Yai and Noi Beaches.

Ao Thong Nai Pan Noi Restaurants

Handsome Sandwiches

Someone around here has a sense of humour: Handsome Sandwiches also sells gasoline “Make you bike go fast” and does laundry, “Make your clothes smell good for ten years” and has a pretty admirable reputation when it comes to burgers and sandwiches. Fairly priced for this area where everything seems to be more expensive, Handsome also stays open late and is therefore a favourite with the munchies crowd.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 10am until late
  • Location: 9 Thong Nai Pan Noi, Baan Tai, Koh Phangan, Surat Thani 84280, Thailand

The Beach Club

The Beach Club has a rustic feel to it and, directly adjacent to the beach, it enjoys refreshing sea breezes. With the usual Thai reclining cushions on raised wooden platforms, it mimics other, more laid-back places in the village and it certainly is cleaner looking but lacks intimacy and charges a lot more than its neighbours. Western and Thai dishes, on-the-beach dining possible.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 8am to midnight
  • Location: 55 Moo 5, Thong Nai Pan Noi, Koh Phangan, Surat Thani 84280, Thailand
