Ba Kantiang Restaurant is the best! Owned and run by the lovely Pi-On and his family, this is a real Thai restaurant that all the locals eat at. Offering a range of authentically prepared Thai dishes – don’t be afraid to order off the menu – they are happy to make any dish as long as they have the ingredients. Ba Kantiang Restaurant is one of the best Thai restaurants we’ve every come across, at home or abroad and super-cheap to boot. Don’t leave Kantiang Bay without at least one dinner at Ba Kantiang.
TIP – Start to walk past 7 Eleven, up the hill and out of the village and after 5 minutes you will come to Ba Kantiang Restaurant on your left hand side. Don’t be fooled by the fact it looks like several small bamboo huts and a larger concrete-floored, open-walled structure with a giant television – your taste buds are in for a fantastic Thai treat. To die for is the chicken or shrimp tempura and spicy chicken and mango salad (it says spicy catfish and mango salad on the menu but they often make it with chicken). Order several dishes to share so you can have a try of everything.
