Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 May 2014

After visiting Big Buddha, doing a little shopping, and then browsing the local (fisherman's) market....we were famished and it looked like rain was moving in.

Just next to the ferry pier, we stumbled upon Yada Bar (right next to Boat Bar...the bar with a big, replica boat built into the front).

Thinking we'd get a beer and a quick bite before heading back to the market, we settled into a table near the waterfront. We didn't expect the food would be so good that we'd order seconds...

Papaya salad? Delicious and spicy, just as requested.

Pad Thai? Yes, it's available anywhere, but this was tasty!

Panang Curry? So good that we licked the plate clean and ordered a second.

The mixed drinks were quite good as well, plus there's WiFi and cold beer. The view is minimally obstructed, but it's worth a stop if you're in the area.
