“Lovely garden ambience, food disappointingly mediocre”

Baan Bang-La Restaurant
Ranked #87 of 201 Restaurants in Kata Beach
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 25, 2018

This restaurant takes some effort to find and is set in a charming garden setting. We had high expectations for the food, but it was basically the same selection and quality as all the other restaurants in the area catering to tourists. A mix of standard Thai dishes as well as pizza, pasta and such fare. The Thai food was very mild. The crab didn't seem fresh and was mostly shell. So this is a nice restaurant for the atmosphere, but stick to some basic dishes and don't have high expectations.

We were staying at the Baan Vanida Garden Resort, and having walked past Baan Bang La all week (it’s pretty much next door) we decided on our last night to give it a try.
Well, what a wonderful surprise! It’s like an enchanting hidden garden, tucked right away from the road, so no annoying constant traffic noise, sadly not the case with most restaurants here. Very nice ambience with tables nicely spaced apart. My Thai wife ordered some Thai food which got a big thumbs up for both taste and value, and I had a pizza staggioni which was great. We arrived at about 7.30 and within another half hour or so it was pretty full, which says a lot, as it wouldn’t be easy to see from the road, so news has clearly spread about how good it is. Service was polite and prompt, and the bill for three came in at under 1200 baht.
Baan Bang La was the best we found in our week at Karon. Just a shame we didn’t give it a try earlier.

Not easy to find, but the place is very nice and quiet.

A beautiful garden, a warm feeling, good feod, especially tempura.

Definitely worth to try if you are in this area
