Where to eat in Kata Beach?

Kata Beach has many restaurants and places to eat, from modest street food to the most high-end dining experience in Phuket. You will be surprised by the level of cuisine and setting you can find in Kata Beach. Beach dining is great for lunch or even breakfast, and a sunset dinner at one of the panoramic restaurants above kata Noi is a great way to end the day. For a fine dining experience with a fantastic sea view, Kata Rocks is one of a kind, and Villa Royale is one of the best Thai restaurants on the Island.

Beach Dining

A beach restaurant in north Kata Beach

You will find a line of restaurants at the extreme south of Kata Beach for an affordable local lunch right on the sand. None are sophisticated: wooden shacks with thatched roofs, plastic chairs around basic tables, and good affordable Thai food with your feet in the sand. It’s hard to beat this!
