Pranees Kitchen is a family-owned and managed Thai food restaurant serving traditional cuisine, and has been run by the same family for over 30 years. The restaurant is one of the few remaining old-style Thai buildings this close to the beach, and its wooden floors and combination of table seating and comfortable Thai cushions give diners a feeling of stepping back in time, which adds to the authentic experience. 

The staff are friendly and helpful, and the ambience is welcoming and relaxed. The menu is extensive, the flavours delicious, and the portion sizes are generous. As one of the longest-running restaurants on the island it is often recommended by locals, and for good reason!


Pranees Kitchen specialises in Thai food and seafood, all of which is cooked to order by one of their experienced chefs. All meals are fresh and bursting with flavour, and the staff are happy to accommodate different levels of spice preference when you order. 

With a range of starters, mains, and some sweet treats for dessert too, there is something on the menu for everyone, including a good selection of western food for any picky eaters in your group. When ordering your favourite Thai dish you can choose from chicken, pork, prawn, tofu, vegetables, or seafood as the main ingredient. Pranees has recently introduced a small dedicated vegan menu that includes delicious dishes such as pumpkin and chickpea red curry, chickpea lentil and potato massaman curry, and a spicy fruit salad!


Pranees Kitchen offers a full drinks menu including fresh fruit juices, shakes, smoothies, hydrating fresh coconuts, local beers, house wine, and soft drinks.
