Eat and meet

Nai Harn Beach

With an ever increasing expat population, there are many diverse options for eating in Nai Harn Town.

Nai Harn Bars

Right beside the Reggae Bar lies Yoonique — a newish bar popular with the local art community, with jam sessions during the week and a free barbecue on the weekend. The bamboo-and-thatch Rum Jungle Cafe is an atmospheric place for a drink and the music is as diverse at its usual expat crowd.... Read our full review of Nai Harn Bars .

Los Amigos
Next to Nai Harn Lake
T: (089) 472 9128

Located at the northeast corner of the lake, Los Amigos serves standard Mexican and Thai dishes. Out of the four Western restaurants in proximity, this one had the number of customers — it’s no wonder, as it has some of the best fresh guacamole around. Mexican dishes start at 140B....

Spoonful of Sugar
30/10 M.1 Wiset Road, Nai Harn Town

T: (076) 289 823

The small restaurant is busy at all hours of the day, serving some of the most delicious food in town — try the sandwiches. The all-day big breakfast special may seem a bit steep at 170B, but after surveying what is included, it could be your only meal of the day. The Breakfast Hut is long-running and is showing no signs of slowing down.... Read our full review of The Breakfast Hut .

Cheap Ass
28/28 Viset Road, Nai Harn Town

As the name suggests, this is the best cheap local food in the area so make the effort to stop by. The menu has standard Thai fare and all dishes can be prepared vegetarian. The family who runs the place proudly cooks their meals without MSG and each dish tastes extremely fresh. The portions are by no means large, but with dishes starting at 40B, you can probably afford to splurge on a second... Read our full review of Cheap Ass.
