Pearl Beach Restaurants – Our Favourites

pearl-beach-restaurants-koh-changPearl Beach restaurants are few and far between, with you tending to eat either in your resort or the resorts next door.

Saffron on the Sea was arguably the best of the Koh Chang restaurants, but in the last year, it has changed hands and the head chef moved on. It’s unquestionably a very hard act to follow but early feedback does seem positive.

Up on the street, you’ll find a row of stalls by the road between Koh Chang Resortel and Koh Chang Privelege, with all the usual choices of noodle soup, chicken in rice and somtam. There’s also the option of classic one dish over rice dishes like pad kapow muu (minced pork fried with holy basil leaf), delicious with an added fried egg.

Elephant and Castle is famous for its English breakfasts and Sanaes always hits the mark.

If you still can’t decide, the large Tesco Lotus is on your doorstep or its competition at Big C. Both have extensive food sections, with some takeaway options.

Saffron on the Sea

Per Person: BB-BBB

Charming spot by the sea at the end of Khai Mook 1, this has now changed hands. Restyled, terrace extended, shorter menu, Thai and western, cocktails and full bar. Well worth a visit, relaxed.

Sanaes Restaurant

Per Person: B-BB

Long standing western and Thai cafe, serving up simple dishes of a consistently good quality, with home made sausages and pat krapow (fried with holy basil) house specialities. Lots of local knowledge thrown in for good measure.
