Kata Beach Restaurants

Where to Eat in Kata Beach

The long white stretch of sand that is Kata Beach has attracted more than its share of visitors over the years and hotels, resorts and restaurants have sprung up to serve their needs. You'll find cuisine from all over the world represented here and options run the gamut from mid-range Thai seafood outlets to some of the finest dining anywhere on the island. Steak and seafood seem to be the most common offerings of Kata's many restaurants.

Most roadside restaurants display their iced selection of lobsters, tiger prawns and plump fish right in front of their shop for all to see - and for diners to handpick. There's no shortage of Thai restaurants, with Scandinavian, Tex-Mex, Indian and Italian places to choose from, just to name a few.

There are so many restaurants in the general Kata Beach area that we have drawn a line between northern and southern Kata and displayed the restaurants on two separate pages. On this page you will find northern and central Kata restaurants. Click on Southern Kata Beach restaurants to read about them.
