Wai Thai No 6:
A friendly place with a large menu of popular Thai dishes, pizza, pasta and burgers. Nothing fancy here with plastic chairs and tablecloths but the portion sizes are big and the sea breeze is refreshing.

Diagonally opposite Bangla Road. With over 200 stores, a cinema and a bowling alley, Jungceylon is a great escape from the heat and rainy days.
