Looking for the best restaurants in Koh Larn? We visited a large number of restaurants on Koh Larn to make an ultimate list of must-visit places. Koh Larn is home to several amazing restaurants that serve great seafood, as well as Instagrammable cafes with beautiful decorations, great foods and nice drinks. The majority of the great restaurants in Koh Larn can be found on the east side of the island near Na Baan Pier, where you can find the village of the island. There are a few decent local options available at the beautiful beaches on the south and west side of Koh Larn, but we highly recommend to take a five-minute bike ride or tuk-tuk ride to the main road if you want some amazing food. With that being said, let’s jump into the ten best cafes and restaurant on Koh Larn.
 

The 10 best restaurants in Koh Larn are:


 

Chalianglom Kitchen


Chalianglom Kitchen is a popular restaurant located north of the Na Baan Pier and serves a wide variety of Thai seafood dishes. Like several other restaurants listed in this article, the restaurant has a cool atmosphere in the evening with a beautiful ocean view, cosy lighting and lounge chairs: a perfect combination to spend the evening on a small island like Koh Larn. But what’s more important, the food at Chalianglom Kitchen is among the best you can find in Koh Larn. Their signature Deep-Fried Sea Bass with Herbs (450 THB) is probably the tastiest dish we tried on the island and we highly recommend you to order this as well. The slightly spicy, sweet and sour sauce in which the deep-fried snapper is covered in is simply delightful.

ร้านอาหารป้าสร้อย เกาะล้าน


This restaurant is one of the few best restaurants in Koh Larn that does not have a great ambience and an ocean view, but instead, it does one thing very well and that is serving impressive, authentic Thai food, which is reasonably priced too. The restaurant is located on the main road (Moo 7) and does not immediately look inviting to be honest. Don’t get me wrong, the restaurant is not bad-looking, but Koh Larn has many cosy restaurants with great ambience to offer. But once you try one of their bestsellers, the Omelette with Squid (120 THB), you forget all the looks and enjoy a wonderful meal.

Soul Sweet Koh Larn


Soul Sweet Koh Larn is a nice restaurant with a large varying menu that consists of Thai, International and fusion dishes. All these dishes have a beautiful presentation and you can see immediately that the food is prepared with a lot of care. One of the tastiest dishes we tried was the U.S. Beef Burger (219 THB), which is made with their homemade buns and a patty that is handcrafted. Honestly, we did not expect to find a decent burger on a small island like Koh Larn, so if you are craving for a burger in Koh Larn, head over to Soul Sweet.

Other recommended dishes are the Tomyum Fried Rice (189 THB), which is served with a nice spicy dressing and large prawns. As well as the Spaghetti Spicy Salmon (239 THB). Soul Sweet also has a large variety of Ice Cream Toasts, which vary between 139 THB and 239 THB, for those who want to eat something sweet.

Nong Riaw Restaurant


Nong Riaw Restaurant is a popular local seafood restaurant that is located at the far end of the main road (Moo 7) but mostly attracts Thai. This is in our opinion a shame, as Nong Riaw Restaurant serves a variety of really good Thai seafood options which are cheaper than the other seafood restaurants. No, Nong Riaw Restaurant does not have that cosy atmosphere than restaurants like Chalianglom Kitchen, but the seafood is really good here. Highlights of the menu are the Deep-Fried Sea Bass with Herbs (380 THB), Deep-Fried Shrimp with Garlic & Pepper (150 THB), Roasted Scallops (150 THB) and the Fried Crab with Curry Powder (200 THB).

Yok Yor Koh Larn


Yok Yor Koh Larn is a modern, Isaan-food orientated restaurant in the middle of the main road. The menu is quite small, but due to its simplicity, a great spot to grab a delicious quick-bite. During lunchtime, this place is among the busiest restaurants on the island for that exact reason. Popular dishes are the Grilled Chicken (80 THB), which goes perfectly together with a Papaya Salad (140 THB), as well as Fried Rice with Crab (100 THB) and Noodle Soup (50 THB). What we liked about Yok Yor Koh Larn is that it’s one of the few restaurants on the island that serves affordable, highly flavoured food of excellent quality where you simply can walk in and be out within half an hour.

Ra Bieng Ruk Seafood


Ra Bieng Ruk Seafood is one of the most popular seafood restaurants in Koh Larn, especially in the evening, the restaurant is a great entertaining place with live music and many locals enjoying the evening. Ra Bieng Ruk Seafood is located north of the Na Baan Pier close to Chalianglom Kitchen. The staff does not speak English that well, and you don’t find many foreigners here, however, if you are looking for great Thai seafood, this place is definitely worth visiting. One of the highlights is their signature Deep-Fried Fish with Vegetables and Herbs (0): chunks of crispy fried fish covered in a herby dressing with the right amount of spice. This is absolutely a must-order. Other great options are the Tom Yum Seafood (180 THB), which is large enough to share it with at least two people, as well as Fried Squid with Seafood Sauce.

Madam Oh Seafood


Madam Oh Seafood is the only restaurant in this article that is not located near Na Baan Pier in the village but is located at Samae Beach, a beach on the west side of Koh Larn. The beach is quite remote and incredibly beautiful and at Madam Oh Seafood, you can enjoy great seafood while enjoying the view on that beautiful beach. The menu of Madam Oh Seafood is large, which each type of seafood categorized per page with a small and large version of each dish. Besides Thai seafood, there are a handful of international options too as well as some Thai classic dishes. We recommend you trying the Deep Fired Fish with Chilli Sauce (400 THB) and the Fried Squid with Basil (200 THB). Both of these dishes are of a decent size and are really well flavoured. We would also recommend the Fried Shrimp with Garlic & Pepper (200 THB), but we do believe the portion is a bit small. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the food here very much, as well the palm trees with white beach sand view. More information about this restaurant in Koh Larn, such as the opening times, location, menu, recommended dishes and other TopTravelFoods users’ opinions, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Madam Oh Seafood.

The following places are cafes, however, serve some amazing dishes too.
 

Fat Submarine Cafe


As mentioned at the beginning of this article, Koh Larn has a few unique, Instagrammable cafes that are hugely popular among Thai that luckily also serves amazing foods. One of them, and this is my personal favourite, is the Fat Submarine Cafe. The reason why it’s my favourite is that the amazing view you get, as well as the finger food that can be ordered here. Fat Submarine Cafe is a bit difficult to find as it’s tucked away in a corner where you usually find the evening market. But once you enter the small cafe and especially the patio, you know exactly why this is my personal favourite cafe.

The menu of Fat Submarine Cafe mainly consists of sweet drinks but does have a handful of ala carte (seafood) dishes and spaghettis. The Dried Chilli & Bacon Spaghetti (159 THB) is the most popular one. I would recommend you to order something more exciting though: the Shrimp & Seafood Combo In Cajun Style (350 THB), which is a seafood bucket covered in a slightly spicy sauce. For the smaller appetite, check out their delicious Onion Rings (119 THB).

Sea You Again Cafe House


Sea You Again Cafe House is the most popular cafe in Koh Larn due to its unique atmosphere. The cafe, which is located right behind the main road, has an interior that looks like it’s from a cartoon. The majority of the visitors come here to enjoy one of the many cakes in combination with coffee or their signature mocktails or smoothies and of course shoot pictures of their Instagram accounts.

But Sea You Again Cafe House has more to offer than only cakes and drinks. The menu has three pages full of good Thai food options such as a Pad Thai with Prawns in Omelette (145 THB) and a Spaghetti Fried Squid with Salted Egg (195 THB), which all are beautifully presented and well-flavoured. Keep in mind that during lunchtime, this place is often completely packed. It’s advisable to avoid these rush hours.

Sea Space


Sea Space is another popular cafe in Koh Larn that attracts many Thai. As this place has direct access to the beach, it’s a perfect place to spend some time enjoying drinks, sweets or complete meals with your feet in the sand. Especially during the evening, when the outdoor area is beautifully lit, it’s a great place to socialize with your friends. The menu is, like typical cafes, small with classic dishes such as Fried Chicken with Cashew Nuts, Tom Yum Soup and Pad Thai. Our favourite was the Pineapple Fried Rice (220 THB). If you’re looking for something sweet, the Honey Toast (175 THB) is a great choice.
