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.

The exception is Saffron on the Sea which must feature on any food lover’s menu at some point during their stay. Here, a Thai chef, formerly on Aussie TV, dishes up food of the highest calibre in a lovely setting by the water.

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

Located by the sea at the end of one of little streets that run downs from near the post office, this is up there with the best the island has to offer – an interesting menu, fresh ingredients, proper flavours, attentive service and a wonderful laid back spot by the sea. Seek it out, but it does get busy.

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 and decent breakfasts.
