We ate Thai our whole trip no matter what restaurant we went too (most in the tourist spots have European options.) I kept researching trip advisor to try and find the best Thai food in Kata based on recommendations (Kata seems to have a high share of the restaurants highly rated on trip advisor which is great) and the Red Chair was the best place we found (and as it happens the cheapest). We tried to go there on our last night but for various reasons (one of which was finding it) we didn't get there till after 9pm when it closes, so we went there for lunch on our last day. The least atmosphere of all the places we ate at but definitely the best Thai food, and cheap even with the taxi fare. Would recommend getting a taxi to the restaurant and then you can walk back down to kata beach as an option.
