Low Budget Food Koh Kood

You are planning a trip to Koh Kood and are wondering what kind of budget you should bring?

Although restaurants and accommodation cost a little more than on other Thai islands, 

we managed to get along with a daily budget of around 20-25 Euros per person.

Here you can find the best restaurants and cafés for low budget.

Best restaurants on Koh Kood for low budget


Best Tom Yum 

JK Restaurant has the best tom yum on the whole island! Really nice and spicy, with lots of chilies. You can order any dish with tofu.

Cost: approx. 150 Bht / 3.80€ per curry.

Corner Koh Kood

Yummy Curries

The Corner serves really tasty curries that are both spicy and refreshing thanks to the kaffir lime leaves and lots of fresh vegetables. You can order all dishes with tofu. Cost: approx. 150 Bht / 3.80€ per curry.


Authentic Thai Food

The Thai Kitchen (also found under Table Local) is by far the cheapest restaurant on the island. It always tastes really authentic here.

The restaurant is typically Thai and all in one: supermarket, gas station, street food and restaurant.

We liked the Mango Sticky Rice, the Vegetable Stir Fries with Curry Paste and the Thai Omelette. Although it's not officially on the menu, they can cook all dishes with tofu on request.

Cost: approx. 40 Bht - 50 Bht (1 € - 1.30 €) per dish.


Vegan Restaurant

Mandala is a purely vegan and vegetarian restaurant. There is a large selection of curries, soups, stir fries and even vegan ice cream! You can also choose between different side dishes, such as mixed vegetables, vegan meat or tofu. Our favorite dish was the Holy basil stir fry with vegan chicken! 10/10.

Costs: from 70 - 90 Bht (2€). 


Good View Café

View on White Sand Beach

Here you have the perfect view of the beautiful White Sand Beach. Despite the brilliant view, you don't pay much.

We particularly liked the papaya salad here. But beware, it's spicy!

There is also coffee, smoothies and many other Thai dishes.

Cost: Cappuccino approx. 50 Bht (1.30€), papaya salad approx. 70 Bht (2€). 

Affordable cafés with a view on Koh Kood

View Point Cafe Koh Kood

Coffee with sea view

While you enjoy coffee and cake here, you can watch the fish below you and the sea in front of you. The café is also the perfect place for sunset. There are even cocktails and a few main dishes on the menu.

Cost: Cappuccino approx. 80 Bht (2€), cake approx. 70 Bht (1.80€). Deal with Vietnamese drip coffee & cake approx. 120 Bht (3€).

Gathi Cafe Koh Kood

relaxation and tranquility

If you fancy a quiet and peaceful atmosphere with a sea view, the Gathi Café is the place for you. Everything here is perfection. Especially good is the matcha. They also have delicious cakes, coffee, tea and lots of other dishes. It's a little more expensive than other cafés, but it's worth it for the view!

Cost: Cappuccino approx. 100 Bht / 2,50€.

Thai Tea & Smoothies

This small stall right next to the Chill Out Restaurant serves by far the best Thai tea on the entire island. The Thai tea lady prepares all the drinks with lots of love. The smoothies are also great.

Cost: Thai tea costs 70 Bht (1,80€).


Mangrove Cafè

Here you can sit directly in the mangroves with a view onto the blue water.

The restaurant is really cozy and serves good coffee, Thai tea and a few dishes.

Cost: approx. 70 Bht (1,80€) per drink.
