Went to this restaurant after seeing it when we ate at Green Bird. Would recommend Green Bird too! Nong Ploy is a bit bigger and probably a bit nicer looking. The food is comparable with regards to price and quality. We went back here a couple of times and enjoyed our meals. This restaurant has background music (which Green Bird... More

A great selection of food at very reasonable prices. Our family of 4 got away with 4 mains (including a whole chilli fish for THB 400) with beers and soft drinks for about THB 780 in total. Service was good and no complaints about this place.

If you find Nong Ploy, you're lucky, because this is how Thai food should be served, quick, simple, fresh and spicy. And it's half the price compared to what you get on the beach road, and it's only sixty meters away!

Visited this place tonight after wandering around the shops in Chaweng.. Worst place we have been in Thailand and we definitely won't return. We ordered noodles with prawns, chicken fried rice, fried pork, vegetable spring rolls (which were recent) & chips. All of the food was overly greasy and tasteless. I sent the chips back as they were almost black... More

This restaurant is located down an alley off the bustling main street and is one of a trio of adjacent competing eateries. An ideal stop for simple wholesome food during a night shopping expedition, but not really suitable for a party or other big occasion.

Food was inexpensive & tasted OK, but was served painfully slowly and not together. Not just meals not arriving together, but seafood arriving & cooling before the accompanying rice made a late appearance. Difficult to attract waiting staff's attention to seek missing items & wrong orders.

Great place for cheap and good tasting local authentic seafood with great smiling service. A pity it's located deep inside the main chaweng street. Based on the fried rice benchmark, the price range between 100-150 Bht on the Main Street but it cost just 40 at Nong ploy. A definite return for me for the next few nights.

Stumbled upon this whilst shopping. Came here a few times! the food was amazing and cheap! The staff were good. Even gave us advice not to order the Salted crab salad as he said tourists don't like that. We thanked him a lot. They also give you fresh coconut and open it up for you! A must go!!

This is their local "zi cha" stall located in this side street off Chaweng Beach Road with other small local Thai eateries like Green Bird. We orderd green curry chicken, vegetables and a whole fried fish in thai chili. The fish was very good while the green curry and veg was ok. The fish was fresh and really worth it... More
