I had the American Breakfast and Coffee (can have tea or coffee) today at KL House - see photo.

For 100 baht I have to say it is great value.

I would never rate it for out and out quality but if you fancy a 'light' breakfast, good coffee and value for money this could be for you.

KL House is on the left hand side as you go out of Ao Nang, just before Dr Somboon's clinic.

100 baht for that !!! Looks like not much food on that plate. I can buy similar here in Phuket Town for 50 baht at a place called Arroy Resturant just at the traffic light past the Thai Airlines main office. Sorry - I know this is Krabi Forum, but I had to make a comment on how dismal that food looks.

Apples and oranges mate !!

1. Phuket Town is a long way to go from Kata for breakfast!

Nobody would expect Phuket Town to be the same price as Ao Nang, just as nobody would expect to pay Ao Nang prices in Krabi Town.

2. Do you also get a good cup of coffee included for 50B? If so I will definitely give it a go next time I am over that way.

I do not want to get into a pissing match about this. I just looked at your photo and I thought the food offered was dismal. My point was that in much more expensive Phuket I know a place that offers a similar looking brekkie for much much less. I'm sorry to say that the photo you posted looked very dismal to me for the 100 baht price. If you think that was good value for 100 baht then so be it.

I didn't realise we were getting into a pissing match ......... :D ........... I just didn't think it was a like for like comparison.

For two reasons:

1. Phuket Town is cheaper than the coastal resorts in Phuket, and Ao Nang is a coastal resort. So a fairer comparison would be breakfast prices on Kata, Patong or wherever.

2. I assume, because you don't mention it, that you don't get coffee with the breakfast. I don't know how much a decent coffee is over there, but in Ao Nang you will probably pay 50B up.

I agree, if it was the food only it is expensive at 100 baht. But having a good coffee, ie not nescafe, makes it good value for a 'light' American breakfast.

Are you from the UK? If so, where serves the best Full English breakfast, purely on quality not value for money in Phuket?

Apart from hotels, I have only tried Wine Connection in Patong (pretty good) and Black Canyon (decent bacon and egg sandwich).

Ok, I'll answer. Yes coffee is included in the 50 baht deal. Too be completely honest it's 35 baht for the food and 10 baht for the coffee. I know plenty of places in the beach resort of Patong & Kata offering a full English breakfast from 125 baht (and thats 2 eggs, sausage, bacon, beans, toast, coffee, juice), although the places catering for tourists are more like 150+ baht. Anyway this topic is about Krabi eateries and I'm way too far off topic now.

Best breakfast in Phuket has been well covered in the Phuket Forum

A place not to go is Takola restaurant right next to the CAT building.

First of all it's quite expensive which I don't mind if the food is good. Now at this place, I order a lemon ice tea.... no can do mai mee lemon.... decided to have a nice cold heineken, heineken arrived sadly enough not cold, they had already poured it in a glass then telling me it's not cold and asking me if I want ice in it, no, ice is for liquors and soft drinks not for beer.

Second complaint, one of the main dishes arrived which was beef in red curry...... the beef was tough and unchewable..... would have expected more of this 280 baht dish. Ahh, the rice arrived, cold.... guess they got confused.... is it beer that supposed to be cold and rice hot or the otherway around?

WE had a few other dishes, shrimps..... also a no pass. So the bill was 780 baht, bad culinary experience on this rainy Thursday in krabi. Will stick to the usual ban ton kao and ruen Mai restaruants for good Thai food.

LEt me give some scores out for Takola :

Surroundings 7/10

Service 3/10

Food 1/10

Justy realized that nobody mentioned the ao nang deli yet, the by far best western restaurant in the ao nang area, huge portions for very very fair prices AND top quality.

but than again, for those who dont know where it is, i am not going to tell you, there are only 2 tables and if everbody goes there, there's no seat left for me:)

Mahlzeit.

Looking at the photo it strikes me that I'd eat the toast and enjoy the coffee. Maybe. If it came included in the room price.

Mind you I've seen worse in Bangkok hotels. "Out and out quality" doesn't cover it......"fit for a starving man" might be more appropriate.

They are going to open a new restaurant in Ao Nang Soi 11 by the end of October with sufficient space. No reason to keep the secret any longer.

For inexpensive eating in Ao Nang, check out the food cart/stall type "restaurants" on the sidewalk in front of the MacDonald's-Starbucks plaza.

I had a pad-pak gung (vegetables with shrimp), a nice sized serving at 60thb. The next night I went to a different stall, had a red curry that was so smoking spicy that when I left my hair was wet ! Again, 60thb.

Ao Nang has a few good restaurants but I just find them way overpriced. The Mexican place in the walking arcade offers a two option combination plate for 400thb. Ouch. Even Bernies buffet at 250, after a drink and a tip you can't get away under 350thb, so any of you budget travellers or permanent expats like myself watching your satangs, check out these carts for some pretty decent food at good prices.

For me, by far the best and most competitively priced farang food in Aonang is at a place called the sandwich market. It used to be a small corner place with a big football screen opposite Mcdonald in the "sea of love plaza" but they have relocated and re-opened.

If you go past mcdonalds away from the beach and continue up the hill, past the unfinished mosque it's in a small un-tarred soi on the right hand side. there is a sign for it ( orange ) below a large light blue sign for their sister project "GLUR HOSTEL".

It's about 200m down the soi on the right.

My favourites there: Philly cheese steak........grilled beef, grilled onion and blue cheese mayo on ciabatta, sour cream beef burger.

Theres a lot more to choose from on the menu and the price of a sandwich rages from about 105 - 130 baht.

The couple who own it are Thai, but they spent 7 or 8 years in the states so they know how to make a sandwich. It's easily the best western food I've had in Thailand and I would seriously pay more for it.

I've paid more money in other places for something absolutely sub-standard ( often happens in thailand .....toona baket sir? ) so when i found this place I was really impressed.

They also have an awesome view of The Aonang cliffs.

If you are in the mood for seafood, I would recommend Aree Ba ba. I'm not that sure of the street but the landmark to look for is the McDonald's or Starbucks at Aonang. Cross the road and it is on the walk towards the left ( taking the Mcdonalds as a reference. It's really good and fresh.

My friends and I ( a company of 4) had

>2 coke

>1 red bull

> 2 large Chang beer

>1 coconut

> 1 mango shake

>5 oysters

>green curry with chicken

>spicy seafood with prawns

>Mussels baked with cheese

> fried chicken with basil leave

> steamed fish

> 3 sticky rice

>1 steamed rice

Altogether, it only cost 1600tbh which was quite cheap seeing the quality of the food itself.

This fricken place.

I went in and wasn't too hungry so ordered a Pad Kapao Gai, which is basically a small plate of ground chicken and rice, spicy. Generally runs 40thb or so, o.k. expensive Ao Nang so I was ready to pay double.

They show up with a plate of sliced chicken and vegetables and say, sorry we don't have Pad Kapao (couldn't have told me when I ordered?). My mistake was just saying o.k. no worries without asking how much this is. I get my bill and they hit me with 220thb................................again, my mistake for not asking before consuming.
