Where to eat in Kai Bae Beach
Because the road in this area is quite narrow and everything is seemingly squashed together, finding a place to eat has never been easier. Take a stroll along the road and you’ll see a great variety of local restaurants serving everything from common Thai to popular Western dishes.
Pao Pak Noodle
The name in Thai means ‘lip-blowing noodle’. It’s so named because of the mild spicy burn sensation the noodle causes. Pao Pak Noodle serves a variety of noodle with specially marinated pork. Some of the most popular dishes include honey-marinated and crab-flavoured stew pork. One thing to keep in mind is to go easy on the mighty ground chili!
Kai Bae Marina
Best known for its deliciously large steaks, Kai Bae Marina is a well-established restaurant serving a selection of German and European dishes as well as a wide range of pizzas, pastas, spaghettis and an impressive range of Thai specialties. Movies are also screened in the
restaurant on a nightly basis.
