Whether you want to admit it or not, food is half of the reason we all travel anywhere, isn’t it? So let’s take a look at the top restaurants near Khao Sam Roi Yot that makes the destination even more worthy of a visit.
Jim Daeng Seafood
Come for the name, stay for the amazing seafood. We won’t translate what this restaurant’s name means in Thai but let’s just say it’s enough to make Thai speakers stop to take a second look. But first impressions aside, this place actually serves delicious, fresh seafood. Expect to find all your Thai beach-side favourites, whether it be crab, shrimp, squid or fish dishes.

Tum Karng Jim
Located right next door to the restaurant above and with a name probably even more hilarious, it’s hard to resist giving this place a try. Get all the Isaan staples here: laab, nam tok, chicken wings, sticky rice and so much more. But one thing you don’t want to miss is their signature dish: the crab som tum (som tum poo ma) that unites seafood and Isaan together.

Pa Aung Pa Aing
If you’re looking for a delicious seafood restaurant with affordable prices, this is a great pick. Although the menu is somewhat limited, you can’t go wrong with any of the options. Try their crab green curry, a seafood spin on the famous Thai green curry that you won’t find easily elsewhere.

Chicken and Bee: Good Food and Organic Farm
For those who want a break from seafood, check out this restaurant that focuses only on organic food, served in an outdoor breezy setting. With an onsite farm, you can be sure that everything you’re eating is fresh whether its the salad, pasta or anything in between. They also serve delicious fruit smoothies like apple, pineapple and lime.

Krua Khun Noi
Another seafood pick, but this one sits right on the beachfront, so get ready to dip your feet in the sand. Although not a big store, this restaurant has gotten great reviews from people in the area, thanks to its very fresh seafood and affordable prices. Their squid stirfried in garlic (pla muk tod gra tiem) is one of the most recommended dishes, best enjoyed with some steaming hot rice and an ice cold beer.
