Maenam Restaurants and Dining

Where and What to Eat in Maenam Beach

It's easy to think of Maenam as a simple place to drive through on the way to Chaweng or perhaps Nathon, but there are a few world-class restaurants in and around the resorts that line the beach as well as in the village by the pier.

The types of cuisine available in Maenam are in line with the most famous resort towns in Koh Samui: Maenam’s dining scene counts a long-established bakery, a decent chippie (fish & chip shop), an excellent Japanese restaurant, several Thai restaurants catering to the needs of local expats and visitors to the island, a renowned pancake stall, and a great choice of international cuisine venues.

Sala Thai

Sala Thai is set in a tropical garden at Santiburi Beach Resort. The restaurant serves fine Royal Thai cuisine with delicate European flavours. Dishes such as fuk thong geng kati (pumpkin with coconut curry) and geang som malakor kab pla insee (rich orange curry of green papaya and kingfish) are difficult to find elsewhere and are well worth sampling here. Immaculate service and presentation, subtle lighting, and Thai music all add to the sophisticated dining experience.

The Kitchen Table

The Kitchen Table at W Koh Samui is a great place for exquisite international cuisine and crafted cocktails in Koh Phangan. The restaurant has a very elegant dining space and an outdoor terrace that overlooks the Gulf of Thailand. 

The all-day menu includes classic pizzas and pasta,  as well as Thai classics like green papaya salad and tom yam soup. Like everything else associated with this five-star hotel, The Kitchen Table is very swanky.
