Seafood by Pawn (formerly Laem Klong) Restaurant is a familiar restaurant located in Mae Haad Village on the island of Koh Tao. We have recently relocated to Green Mango Food Court in a brand new restaurant to meet the needs of our growing customer list. Our chef "MAMA" cooks traditional and original best Thai food and also Western food like "Spanish Omelette". At Seafood by Pawn you can enjoy the best fresh fish BBQ. We also rent kayaks for people who want something more than just food, the price for the kayak is only 200 bths per full day. We are located at the top of the 'up' road in Mae Haad and across the road behind Green Mango food court where there is off street parking. Please call us for further information or to make a booking.
