Restaurants walking distance to Ramada in June/July?

After weeks of maddening research and looking at every hotel in Patong, Karon and Kata somebody told me about Ramada Resort Khao Lak, and I fell in love.

We were after a beachfront hotel, and really want to be able to walk to restaurants to eat rather than staying put in the hotel all the time.

I am now worried about ehat dining options will be available in low season. Can anyone let me know?

Thanks

There's a great little Indian restaurant that was open in low season a few years ago...that's about 5 mins walk from the lobby. The Candle stays open as do quite a few others on the main road....10 mins walking from the lobby by road.?

You could also walk onto the beach and turn right and walk another 150 yrds to the main beach entrance...lots of restaurants up there....it didn't seem like "off season" because there's still plenty open and it's getting bigger all the time.

Stayed in Late April/May last year & werent many beach restaurants open at all!!

Theres one right near Ramada that was still open.......think it was called Tonson.

Up toward main highway there were still many open, so you will still have a variety to choose from.

Always plenty of dining options available in Bang Niang and Bang La On in low season. Not so many of the temporary restaurants on the beach, but heaps available in town.

"Low season" is a myth that we have have enjoyed for the past 3 years. Don't tell any one!!

Bang Niang is the most developing and changing area with new restaurants opening, others closing, even in High Season. However, as Tanmar says there will be plenty open within easy walking distance of the Ramada particularly on the beach road down from the 711 on the highway to the beach and on the highway itself. Ones that are most likely to stay open:

* Inders Chullah - Indian restaurant just up from Ramada

* Pinocchio's - Italian Pizzeria as you come to beach road

* Jungle Bar & Restaurant - No 2 just past Chullers, Original No.1 down the Soi next to Smile Bar (turn left at Pinocchio's

* Rusty Pelican - Mexican, down same Soi as Jungle Bar

* Ra Beang - Thai (great fish/seafood) next to Jungle Bar

* Chef Jimme - down past Soi towards beach - cheap and cheerful and often chaotic Thai

* Green Pepper 1, at rear of market, No. 2 on the beach next to Chong Fah Resort

* Bavarian Restaurant - great BBQ chicken, Thai cuisine - turn right at Pinocchio's

* Loma Seafood, Sawsdee Seafood, Candle up past Bavarian House towards highway

* Khao Niau - best Isan food in Khao Lak. To the right of entrance to market on highway

* Takieang - great Thai opposite 711

* Last but not least, Hill Tribes, Chang Mai based cuisine down highway on the right towards Bang La On (where many more will be open.
