About Food & Beverages in Nan

If you are looking for restaurants, coffee shops or pubs like in Bangkok or Chiang Mai then you are at the wrong place in Nan town. Most places are serving local Northern style food or Thai style food, with a few restaurants serving food from the North-East (Isan) or South-Thailand. And in western style food the choice is very limited. But luckily times are changing and there are starting to come more restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. As Nan province is not (yet) a tourist destination for foreigners you might experience that staff at restaurants, pubs and coffee shops are not or limited able to speak English.

As with all things in Nan town also restaurants, pubs and coffee shops are a bit spread over Nan town. But there are a few areas that are recommended as local Thai style areas to have a look for dinner :
  • Night Market / Noodle Street (Phakong road) 
  • Riverside Boulevard (east-side along the Nan River, directly north of the main bridge ).
Most restaurants are cheap in the price range of a simple Thai food for 50 - 80 Thai baht per person exclusive drinks of course. Some restaurants that serve western food might be a bit less cheap. And a good beefsteak is about the same price as in a good restaurant in Bangkok. For restaurants in other places in Nan province click on their name below here.
