Located on the side of Wiset Road, Rawai’s main artery leading to its glorious pier, Colombo Bar & Restaurant is a small, yet welcoming venue, that offers traditional Thai food and Western cuisine to please all palates.
The interior is decorated with red stucco walls around a long bar which extends almost to the kitchen. Along its side and on the terrace, you will find plenty a space to sit and relax around a glass of your favorite beverage.
Chef Nid, in the kitchen, has mastered the craft and delicate use of spices in each of the dishes proposed by the restaurant, which has gained a good deal of reputation for its Massaman curry, which can be ordered with either chicken, pork, or beef.
Another favorite from the patrons is the deep-fried chicken wings, which are prepared Thai style with a dash of fish sauce and homemade batter. While we are at it, the classic Pad Kaprao, also available with different proteins, is a must-try, too!
On the Western side of things, you will enjoy a large selection of comfort food, such as the chicken Cordon Bleu, a pan-fried breaded chicken breast filled with cheese and Paris ham, the traditional pork chop, served with French fries and a small salad, as well as the Merguez, a lamb sausage that pairs wonderfully with Harissa, a spicy paste which finds its origin in Tunisia.
Price-wise, rest assured that dining at Colombo Bar & Restaurant will not break the bank, as most Thai dishes will cost you around THB 100, while Western dishes average THB 200.
Once your stomach is full, feel free to grab a coffee and a digestive before continuing the evening to Rawai; indeed, the location of the restaurant makes it ideal to visit the other popular places in Rawai. The Laguna Plaza and Rawai Pier are located a few meters away only.
