On’s Thai Issan

On’s Thai Issan offers an amazing array of meat-free regional food and a cooking school. It’s possible to choose three dishes from the menu to learn to make. Don’t worry if you’re no Gordon Ramsay, the teacher here is patient, friendly, and a master in the kitchen.

Address: On’s Thai Issan 268/1 Maenamkwai Road, Ban Tai, Mueang Kanchanaburi District, Kanchanaburi, Thailand

Zeb Zeb

Dining in Zeb Zeb is a chance for travelers to immerse themselves in Kanchanaburi’s regional culinary culture. Locals occupy most of the tables here, with tourist faces a relatively rare occurrence beneath the timber pagoda dining hall. Unlike the other tourist restaurants featuring fancy design and fusion dishes, real Thai food is served here in a shabby, rickety wooden hut. Famous dishes like papaya salad, crispy pork and spring rolls are offered at wallet-friendly prices. And in case you find it all a little too spicy, fresh veggies are served for free.

Meat & Cheese

Meat & Cheese offers a change from Thai cusine. If you fancy an Italian pizza or an all-American steak give it a try. From t-bone to fillet, all crispy and caramelised on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside, to cheese-topped pizza and fries, Meat & Cheese has it all. And if you still want to add a dash of the old Siam to your meal, try the steamed bass served piping from the grill.

Address: Meat & Cheese, Mae Nam Khwae Road, Kanchanaburi, Thailand

The Hut

The Hut is a local restaurant that offers Western cuisine like garlic bread, nuggets, spaghetti and steak at great prices. A world apart from upscale chain restaurants, The Hut is a small, welcoming venue with just six tables, providing a relaxed atmosphere for friends and families to chill in while enjoying tasty dishes. While The Hut might be celebrated for its laid-back vibe, the food and friendly staff are sure to leave an impression!
