Food & Drink in Koh Tao Thailand
Koh Tao has evolved to possess the perfect mix of spectacular island scenery, beautiful beaches and incredible marine life, joined with comfortable dive resorts, great restaurants and bars to eat and socialize.
Unlike other touristy areas of Thailand, Koh Tao still maintains a rustic island charm. But that doesn't mean the only thing on the menu is Thai Fried rice!
We're spoilt for choice with a massive selection of Thai and international cuisine at very reasonable prices. Especially around Sairee Beach and village, which has become the main focal point for Koh Tao, and the best area to stay.
Within close walking distance of Simple Life Dive Resort there are many bars and restaurants so whatever you're after you can find it nearby. Here's a selection of our favorite Koh Tao nightlife spots and places to eat:
Koh Tao Sairee Beach Nightlife
The Brother Bar & Grill: All live Premiership games and F1, Regular live Rugby, Live Music, And a great place to start your night!
