Hi. We will be staying at the Chaweng Regent Beach Resort mid September & would like to know where the best cheap places to eat are near there.

Thanks

Hi

Chaweng regent you will be in the middle of everything. There are plenty of restaurants both along the beach and on beach road to suit all the budget and all cuisines. Just walk along the restaurants both on beach and main road all will have menu out the front which is make it very easy to decide. If you like the menu and the look just go in if not go to the next one.

Happy holiday :-)

too many, walk along and see what appeals. Most have a menu out front! Go with a crowded place!

Green Bird is a popular cheap eat near you. We actually go to the one just a few more steps from it but either are fine. If my memory is correct.. walk out of chaweng regent and turn left and go accross the road until you find a alley between world taylor and a tee shirt shop turn right down there. It is up the back on the right. Closed at the moment for renovations but should be open when you are there.

One that we love is not far from you but a 5-10 min walk is....

Mitra Restaurant. See TA reviews also.

Go to the T intesection close to the Regent that leads off to the lake road.( ie the same road Ice bar is on) And head towards the lake. It is on the left just at the beginning of many open air market type places but before you get to the intersection of the lake and police/rescue hangout.

Also not quite as cheap but fantastic food and great hosts down the same road as Mitra but on the right is Gaeng Phet. They have a big yellow sign with red writing and a chilli on it. Pat the lady that runs it is very social and serves great food. You can play pool there if you wish and a bit more comfortable than the other two. She is a wealth of knowledge about trips, hire and everything you need to know. A crowd is a good rule but we have found places like Mitra are quite until all the Thais have finished work for the night and turn up. Mitra is open until 1 or 2am so a popular late night place if you cannot find what you are after.

I should also ask for some recommendations on what Thai meals to try as I haven't eaten a lot of Thai food. I have had Pad Thai which I loved but don't like dishes that are too spicy. I asked for a green curry once thinking it was the milder one & couldn't eat it as it was so hot!

Hi

If you think green curry is still too spicy for you then perhaps try Tom Kha Kai or Koong ( coconut soup with chicken or prawn . Chicken with cashew nut, Tom Yam Koong or Kai ( Tom Yam with chicken or prawn ), sweet and sour chicken, prawn, steams fish etc.
