Baithong Thai & Seafood Restaurant is a new restaurant at Kamala Beach. Authentic Thai cuisine and fresh seafood from the Andaman Sea.
A new dining establishment just a stone’s throw away from the northern end of Kamala Beach, Baithong Thai & Seafood Restaurant serves up tasty, authentic Thai cuisine and the freshest seafood choices in a quaint bistro setting. Located at the entrance to the Swissotel Resort, Baithong Thai & Seafood Restaurant is set to become a popular dining venue in the seaside village of Kamala.
Minimalist in decoration, the restaurant is cozy and charming. The friendly wait staff are eager to please. We quickly choose a table and are treated to a Shirley Temple with a lemony twist. The food is brought out almost immediately, and even before sampling any of the dishes, my dining partner and I are impressed by the presentation: simple, classy and making full use of a variety of Thai flowers.
Six luscious courses of tasty Thai favourites and fresh seafood dishes are served to the table. The Thai beef salad is zesty and bursts with flavour. It is fresh and spicy, which for me is always a bonus. The Poo Pad Pong Garee, stir-fried crab curry, was delicious with its distinct unique taste. A heaping plate of Pork Penang Curry is presented, and the aromas are fantastic. The peanut flavour of the curry comes through extremely rich and nutty. This is one of my favourite Thai curries, and Baithong Thai & Seafood Restaurant really does it well.
Other dishes we sampled include Spring rolls with fresh prawns, Coconut soup with prawns, and a wonderfully tender Steamed fish with garlic and chili. For dessert, we are given a local Thai sweet snack of Sticky rice with egg custard – a simple, local treat and the perfect way to end such a wonderful Thai meal.
Baithong Thai & Seafood Restaurant offers up a varied menu of authentic Thai cuisine, seafood specialities and locally inspired Thai desserts. Both the cocktail list and wine menu are extensive, and the bartender is also happy to create interesting mocktails for those looking for a refreshing drink.
New to the Kamala Beach area, Baithong Thai & Seafood Restaurant is a must-try. Great, authentic dishes combined with friendly, efficient service speaks for itself! You may want to book as we expect this restaurant to get busy.
