Best Food/Bars in Kata?

Hi Everyone,

I'll be in Kata in March '11 to do a couple of liveaboards and I have two evenings in Kata to eat and drink on Sunday 20th March & Monday 21st and I'm looking for recommendations please.

I'll be getting a lot of Thai food on the boats so I'd like to get some Lobster while on land. Can anyone suggest where and how much would it be? I'm on a bit of a budget! Also, can you suggest some must-try Thai starters while I'm there? I like a bit of spice but nothing that will blow my head off!

I love a nice pizza too, I've heard good things about Sorrento opposite 2chefs..is it any good?

I've read good things about Ska, Bounty & the Tube. Any other great bars to try? I like a bit a pool, lively music, friendly people to meet (as I'm alone), nice views, not really interested in watching sport on tv.

If anyone is interested in meeting up for dinner or just drinks, let me know!

Thanks for taking the time to reply

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris Arrive in Kata for a week on 19th March also on my own if you want to meet up for drinks- also on a budget and keeping my money for dive trips. Staying south end at a guest house near Kata Beach Hotel and Ska Bar. Ska Bar is a must and the family own a restauarant next door which serves really good food recommend the deep fried prawns and the chicken Satay both under 100 bhat. Bounty Bar is also nice next door to Phuket Dive Club to meet people. If you are looking for pizza you have to try Capannina and at teh end of the ext soi a really nice english pub with pool, soccer on the TV and apple pie - I'm not kidding . Send me a PM if you are keen and I'll try to arrange a meet up at Ska Bar with a few others.

Hi,

After reading a couple of posts about the lobster I think i'll give it a miss.

So instead, I'm looking for a cheap Thai restaurant with great choice. I've heard good things about Kwong's? Any other suggestions?

As for pizza, I'll try either Sorrento or Capannina. Which is best?

Thanks for your help

@Kata_noi

Er, which family restaurant serves shark fin? Are you talking about Kwong's? I'm not going to support any restaurant that serves shark fin.

Cheers!

I believe Kwong's is opposite Two Chefs (their main restaurant in Kata not the smaller one). "Kwong Shop Seafood" is listed on this site as number 15 Restaurant's in Kata.
