Hot Spots on Food Street
A 100m or so down Food Street on your left as you leave Highway 4, Sawasdee gets great reviews for its authentic Thai cuisine and superb duck dishes. There’s hot pots and seafood too, and even lobster by arrangement with the lovely owner Khun ‘O’.
Enzo Japanese Restaurant
‘Zen style,’ subdued décor and ambience and a classic array of Japanese cuisine from sashimi to tempura. A bit pricier than most, but it’s fresh seafood and quality that counts here. Good attention to detail with no great rush in terms of service.
Bavaria House (Jane Isaan)
Serving both Isaan (north-east Thailand) style food and Bavarian food like schnitzel, goulash, and European style salads, Bavaria House is popular with German tourists but all visitors are welcomed by local legend and owner Tom.
Classic Italian fare, well- delivered with a wood-fired pizza oven and good wine selection. Plenty of outdoor seating and a great location by the junction to Ramada resort for people-watching whilst you enjoy a rewarding meal.
Rusty Pelican Mexican Café
Looking for a change from the usual Thai and Western cuisine? The Rusty Pelican serves up wholesome authentic Mexican food such as sizzling fajitas. Filling, hearty, portions for decent prices – plus frozen margaritas to boot!
Opposite Pinocchio’s near the junction half-way to the beach, Siam is rated highly by visitors for a good ambience, attentive ser vice and quality Thai cuisine that includes some European classics. Drinks include ice-cold beers and great cocktails.
