Baan Rim Nam Koh Yao Yai
When you are out on a 5 Star Marine Tour in Phang Nga Bay, we would highly recommend the amazing Baan Rim Nam, on Koh Yao Yai.
Baan Rim Nam restaurant is a must-visit and not only because the food is very tasty, but also because of the fantastic location. As you sit on the wooden deck you overlook the tranquil bay and right in front
of you, see the floating shacks of the local fishermen, who bring their catch daily to the restaurant.
There are magnificent views from Baan Rim Nam. The awesome staff welcomes people all year round as t is such a popular restaurant. The service is very professional and polite and you really feel like you are at a 5-star restaurant, but still with that local restaurant feel.
There is no surprise there are so many good reviews online for Baan Rim Nam. Immediately as we arrived, we were met with a warm welcome and sat with a stunning view of the bay. The Thai food was to die for. Massive fresh tiger prawns from local fishermen prepared perfectly. Freshly fried fish, crispy and light, and one of my personal favorites is the raw prawn dish called locally – “Kung chae nampla”.
This is a Thai salad made from fresh raw shrimp soaked in Thai fish sauce and served with chunks of gourd, cloves of garlic, chilies, and spicy sauce.
NOTES – The spicy sauce is VERY spicy, and the gourds are VERY bitter
Their signature dessert was a total surprise. You need to watch the video to find out what this is.
Thai food is more than just a meal—it’s a social and cultural experience. In Thailand, meals are often shared, and dining is seen as a communal activity. The warm hospitality, lively atmosphere, and conviviality associated with Thai dining enhance the overall enjoyment of the food. Sharing a variety of dishes with loved ones, engaging in conversation, and experiencing the unique Thai dining culture
add an extra layer of satisfaction to the culinary experience.
Thai food’s irresistible flavors, fresh ingredients, diverse textures, versatility, exquisite presentation, and social aspect all contribute to its exceptional reputation. The balance of flavors, commitment to freshness, and attention to detail make Thai cuisine an absolute delight for the senses.
Whether you’re indulging in a spicy locally caught tiger prawn curry or savoring a tangy salad, the food at Baan Rim Nam, on Koh Yao Yai offers you a culinary journey that is unparalleled, making it truly deserving of its recommendations by the 5 Star Marine Phuket team as the Best Restaurant in Phang Nga Bay.
