“Sit with feet hanging over the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Great experience eating at Buddha View on Bang Bao wharf. The have large glass tables over holes in the wharf, you sit on the floor with your feet hanging down over the water.

Food was very good too :)

“For the View, for a drink or two. Not for eating.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

The Buddha View is worth stepping by. It has a wonderful view, a specially at the sundown. Gliding fishing boats, sound from other restaurants, ocean breeze. It really can be inspiring.

From the other hand the food is really overpriced and average. We had the Barracuda, that wasn't so fresh and we had a hair in it. The good thing that it has no fish smell, but a good fish smell tells that in the restaurant you can eat real fresh fish and seafood.

“Serene spot for a lazy lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Had a late lunch at Buddha View this week and really enjoyed it.

The location is good - its right on the water with a nice view.
The ambiance of the place even better - quiet and relaxed atmosphere with cool / mellow background music.

Have lunch at a glass table with your legs hanging over the water - then take a timeout in one of the lounge chairs...

Should be on your list of "to do's" for Ko Chang.

“Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Stopped here for a drink. A fantastic location & love that you can sit at table and dangle feet over the water. Didn't eat here this time but we did when we visited in 2009 and it was very good.
