Just because tourists go there it doesn't make it bad. The food stands are as good as Bangkok for 30 or 40 cents more for some items. So don't get to righteous on me. There is no place in Asia that doesn't have McDonalds and KFC. This market doesn't have any chains there. Go you'll love it. It doesn't get... More

Yes a bit touristy but not bad for that. Mostly gap year and perennial hippy types plus a few savvy families. The food is generally good and at a fair price. Good place to kick back and while away an hour or so people-watching.

Yep, go find this little restaurant within the Phantip food market, thongsala, way at the back, right hand side, well worth a visit. Have eaten here many times, never been disappointed, all food fresh, cooked to order by courteous and efficient staff, and they will cook your order up as spicy as you like. There are so many food outlets... More

First of all ignore the misty eyed descriptions you get in guide books telling you that this is a genuine Thai night market where you can enjoy a meal with the locals. You will see the occasional Thai buying food here but they'll be off on their scooters before you can get your pad Thai back to the nearest table.... More

if you go to Koh Phangan, you'd be crazy not to eat here, it is really great food and amazing value, staff are nice people too once you get to know them, we ate there every night except once on our recent visit, thats how good it is....

As the title says, it is our favourite food after 3 trips to Thailand. There is alot of great food but this place is always really good, we eat here 75% of the time when we are in Koh Phangan and have not been dissapointed yet. Value for money is rediculously good, try the Pad Thai, Panang Curry or Thai... More
