Piang Prai (Krua Piang Prai) is an excellent hidden local restaurant hidden in a green nest just next to Bang Pae waterfall. Mostly unknown from tourists because of its remote location, Piang Prai is one of the two great places to have lunch if you happen to be in the are (the other restaurant being Bang Pae Seafood.) Piang Prai is good; it’s worth travelling a long way to enjoy their excellent Thai food.
Piang Prai is a local favourite spot, and you can tell it also addresses to a young local crowd from their surprising choice of Phuket craft beers that a lot of Thai haven’t even yet heard of, such as Bussaba Ex-Weisse, Chalawan Pale Ale and Chatri IPA.
Piang Prai restaurant consists of two nicely designed spacious wooden houses surrounded by tall trees and gardens. From the upper terraces, you can enjoy a view of a small lake leading to the Bang Pae waterfall. It’s perfect for a delightful lunch escape.
