Kantiang Restaurant has moved to opposite The Sea, by the Petrol Station, on the bend, before you arrive in Kantiang Bay. Kantiang Restaurant is the best! Owned and run by the lovely Pi-On and his family, this is a real Thai restaurant that all the locals eat at. Offering a range of authentically prepared Thai dishes
