Nang Thong Beach Restaurants & Dining

Where to Eat in La On Village

Nang Thong Beach and La On Village have many restaurants with a wide range of cuisines to choose from, but it is not really a fine-dining destination, apart from the few plush resort dining venues located in the area. This area is popular with Scandinavians, yet Scandinavian cuisine does not dominate the dining scene. You can get your meatballs at the Viking Steakhouse and Pizzeria, though.

Expect many mid-range restaurants serving mixed-nationality cuisine in an effort to keep everybody happy, and a good choice of local restaurants serving a wide choice of Thai specialties from all around the kingdom. Seafood lovers will certainly enjoy their holiday in Nang Thong as fresh crab, fish and lobsters are available every day from the nearby mangrove forests’ rich waters.

All Restaurants in Nang Thong Beach and La On Village

9 Restaurant & Bar

Modern looking and well fitted out, 9 Restaurant & Bar is a bit of a chameleon, serving breakfast lunch and dinner. It’s quiet, classy and large enough to enjoy a cut-above-the-rest dinner.

  • Opening Hours: 12:00 – 23:00
  • Location: Central La On
  • Cuisine: Thai/European

Discovery Café

Is Discovery a restaurant or a bar? That’s for you to discover. Roadside and busy, it’s definitely a restaurant earlier on in the evening but morphs later on into quite a night spot – well at least by rather laid-back, less-than-nuclear Khao Lak standards.

  • Opening Hours: 08:00 – 24:00
  • Location: Central La On

Dragon Restaurant & Bar

Immensely popular with Scandinavian families, this bamboo-and-thatch affair offers cocktails, European and Thai food in a tried-and-trusted formula but one that has to be respected, given the number of clients it attracts.

  • Opening Hours: 12:00 – 23:00
  • Location: Central La On
  • Cuisine: Thai/European

Everyday Lazy House

Everyday Lazy House is a pleasant bar and restaurant located on Phetkasem Road in La On Village, right opposite Sensimar Khaolak Beachfront Resort. Featuring a very friendly atmosphere and excellent service, this restaurant serves a wide range of international and Thai favourites at reasonable rates. Dispensing Thai cooking classes during the day and unobtrusive live music (mostly ‘70s and ‘80s classics) performed by the bartender in the evening, Everyday Lazy House is definitely a recommendable venue.

  • Opening Hours: 09:00-22:00
  • Location: On Phetkasem Road in La On Village
  • Tel: +66 (0)81 397 2802

Jao Seafood and Khao Lak Seafood

Two side-by-side seafood outlets that are as broad as they are wide – in other words there’s not much difference between them when it comes to pricing, service and food quality. They say competition is healthy for business, and in this case it’s very true as both restaurants ensure that standards are kept high.

  • Opening Hours: 12:00 – 23:00
  • Location: Next to The Happy Snapper, Highway 4
  • Cuisine: Thai seafood

Kinnaree Bakery

For good fresh sandwiches, patisseries, cakes or ice cream along with tea, coffee, or even beer, Kinnaree is a prime spot. Set back and raised from the road with a terrace and a well-lit interior, it’s hard not to believe that Kinnaree was purpose-built for people watching.

  • Opening Hours: 09:00 – 22:00
  • Location: Central La On
  • Cuisine: Bakery/patisserie

Kung Seafood

Busy most nights, this 40-cover restaurant offers both Thai and European fare at reasonable prices. Basic, but dependable.

  • Opening Hours: 12:00 – 23:00
  • Location: Central La On
  • Cuisine: Thai/European Seafood

Lamuan Seafood

Up a small flight of stone steps in the centre of La On you’ll find Lamuan seafood restaurant. Featuring a brick-and-tile décor, Lamuan delivers the goods and it is a busy place most nights. You can also eat breakfast and lunch here.

  • Opening Hours: 09:00 – 23:00
  • Location: Central La On
  • Cuisine: International and Thai seafood

La Piccola Maria

This long-established restaurant (it was the first genuine Italian trattoria in Khao Lak) was originally located on Nang Thong Beach Road, but moved in June 2016 to a new location on Phetkasem Road, the main street in La On Village. Under Italian management, La Piccola Maria serves the best pizzas (baked in a wood-fired oven) in the region, as well as an excellent choice of Italian specialities, including gluten-free and kids’ menus. The atmosphere of the venue is pleasant, the service impeccable, the rates reasonable, and the food delicious; what else could we ask for?

  • Opening Hours: 12:00-22:00
  • Location: In La On Village about 50m north of Nang Thong Supermarket on Phetkasem Road
  • Tel: +66 (0)86 948 1010

McDonald’s

For those tired of all that fresher than fresh seafood and bored by healthy salads, Supersize-Me help is near in the form of McDonald’s. This branch is open 24/7, maybe to cater for the many truck drivers passing through.

  • Opening Hours: 24/7/365
  • Location: Central La On
  • Cuisine: None

O’Connor’s Irish Pub

Here’s a conundrum: a German-run Irish Pub in Thailand that serves Korean food. Still, Ralf, the owner and ex-tsunami volunteer, has a stock answer to such improbabilities – “Why not?” Strictly speaking, the Korean food is only served when there’s a barbecue going on and the pub has an admirable range of single malt whiskies and international draught beers as well as Thai and international dishes. O’Connor’s also has occasional live music, a friendly atmosphere, genuine décor and runs “chaotic but fun” Thai cooking classes.

  • Opening Hours: 10:00 – 24:00
  • Location: Northern La On opposite Chusak Clinic
  • Remarks: Cooking classes available
  • Tel: 085 784 9645

Orchid Café

Orchid Café is a little gem of a Thai restaurant, located a few doors south from The Sands hotel’s driveway, on Phetkasem Road near the northern end of La On Village (it is right next to Doctor Chusak’s Clinic). Featuring an unpretentious setting, this family-run restaurant serves most of the Thai favourite dishes such as tamarind prawns, fried chicken with green mango salad, rock lobster, sweet and sour pork, and more, all at very affordable rates. Indoor and outdoor dining areas are available.

  • Opening Hours: 10:00-22:00
  • Location: On Phetkasem Road at the northern end of La On Village, right opposite Sunshine Inn Resort

Ruen Mai

Ruen Mai features lots of polished wood, lovely green foliage, an iced ‘boat’ display out front, and a good, varied seafood-based menu. Discreet lighting helps this eatery along in the ambience department and there’s lots of space.

  • Opening Hours: 18:00 – 23:00
  • Location: By Ruen Mai Plaza, central la On
  • Cuisine: Seafood, Thai/international

Smile Khaolak Restaurant

Located on Phetkasem Road, between Nang Thong and Bang Niang beaches, Smile Khaolak is an unpretentious restaurant featuring indoor and outdoor dining areas. Run by a friendly couple, the restaurant serves a great choice of Thai specialties as well as international dishes. The quality and freshness of the fare is second to none, and one the Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 10:00 – 21:00
  • Location: Between a Siam Commercial Bank branch and Biker Bar on Phetkasem Road on the way out of La On Village toward Bang Niang
  • Tel: +66 (0)83 391 2600

Spinach Restaurant

Spinach is a nicely designed bamboo-and-thatch restaurant located on Phetkasem Road in La On Village. Featuring a lush garden and an open-sided dining area, this family-run restaurant is a really pleasant venue to sample a good range of reasonably-priced local favourites, including an excellent choice of fresh seafood and fish dishes. The atmosphere of Spinach Restaurant is friendly and has a strong local touch.

  • Opening Hours: 10:00-22:00
  • Location: On Phetkasem Road in La On Village, 30m before Khao Lak Grand City Hotel
  • Tel: +66 (0)89 289 9345

Tiffy’s Restaurant

Tiffy’s is a friendly, open-sided wooden restaurant popular with the many scuba divers in the area (and situated next door to a dive shop). Tiffy’s – named after the owner’s son – features Thai, German and English dishes – which is probably why the menu is so hard to read – and does so with panache. It’s no wonder that people keep coming back here; the fish filets are fresh and generous while the meat cuts and sauces are delicious. Daily specials are chalked up for all to see and the staff speaks reasonably good English. Not cheap, but well worth a try.

  • Opening Hours: 08:00 – 23:00
  • Location: North La On, opposite Dr. Chusak Clinic, next to Sea Dragon Dive Centre
  • Cuisine: German/British/Thai

Viking Steakhouse & Pizzeria

Viking has a pretty good reputation in La On. It handles a lot of hungry Scandis daily and has a free salad bar, cosy interior and a large terrace. Maybe not so much a fine-dining experience as a communal tuck-in, occasionally the place gets too crowded to guarantee good service. Still, for a western food experience with large portions, Viking delivers. You may have to reserve in advance or dine earlier to get a table.

  • Opening Hours: 09:00 – 23:00
  • Location: Central La On
  • Tel: 076 420 815
  • Cuisine: Scandinavian/Thai/International

Yuppadee Seafood

A very busy place using an unsurprising combination of Thai seafood and European dishes but diners vote with their wallets and Yuppadee, in spite of its funny-sounding Disneyesque name, is a winner. With large wooden furniture and a menu perusable from the pavement, bright lights and a bustling atmosphere, Yuppadee is one of La On’s busier places.

  • Opening Hours: 12:00 – 23:00
  • Location: Central La On
  • Cuisine: Seafood/European
