Kata Beach Cheap/ Authentic Thai Food

Hi,

We are heading to Kata Beach for our Honeymoon in February, staying at Metadee Resort. Can anyone recommend cheap, authentic Thai restaurants in the area? Last time we visited Patong and found the restaurants down back alleys and out of the way had the most amazing food and so cheap! We don't care about decor, just great food! anyone want to share your secrets for Kata? :)

Just ask the Thai people at your hotel or around your area where they eat.

You'll find the gems.

I've found some amazing restaurants this way. (not fancy, just good food, and cheap)

There are some great little, Thai restaurants around the Post Office area. Mama Daeng's and Corazon are our favourites but there are lots there. Just avoid anywhere that looks even remotely flash and you'll do OK.

We're staying at Metadee at the moment and it's amazing!!! a short stroll down the driveway and turn to your left, head up a few blocks and down a little lane you will find SUGAR AND SPICE. Fantastic cheap Thai food with friendly staff. Highly recommended. Hope to see you there :-)

We are staing in kata right now and there are too many to choose from! Even the £2 pad thai from the beach is better than anything I've had at home.
