Khao Takiab Restaurants & Dining

Where and What to Eat in Khao Takiab

The number of places to eat in Koh Takiab is rapidly growing. This up-and-coming area not only has resort developments in the pipeline, which inevitably bring restaurants, but an increasing number of expats and locals are choosing to open up here, outside of central Hua Hin. At the time of writing the dining scene was varied enough to please a diverse pool of appetites and as in most eateries in this province, seafood rules supreme.

Other than the array of beachside dining joints there is an Italian, a good few Thai places and all the international dining that comes with upscale resorts. Just 10 Kilometres out of Hua Hin, the only major difference between the dining scenes is Koh Takiab’s lack of fast food chains and street food vendors, otherwise everything you can get in Hua Hin you can get here, in more peaceful surroundings.

La Mer

Probably the most famous restaurant in this small area, La Mer is perched on Koh Takiab Mountain. Just a five-minute walk downhill from the temple, it scores good points for both the food and view.

The seafood is definitely worth a trip up the mountain, lovely and fresh as with most quality seafood restaurants, depending on the dish, is priced by weight
