Signs of s-e-a appeal at Mr Kobi's Bar

Mr Kobi's Bar & Restaurant, Nai Yang

Monday, January 21, 2008
Telephone: 081 8941913

Open: 11am-11pm

Address: About the middle of the beach, Nai Yang

Style: Thai-Western.

Price range: Inexpensive. Scrambled eggs, bacon, ham and toast, 120 baht, and the host added a pineapple juice gratis. Spaghetti with chicken, 140 baht; that tourist favorite, fresh pineapple containing fried rice with prawns and vegetables, 180 baht; Banana shake, 60 baht.

Specialty: Seafood and hospitality. Each menu, brimming with large hand-printed entries, contains snapshots of happy guests and the food. Everywhere are signs. We liked ''Broken English spoken here'' and ''

What Mr Kobi says: I am a local and we have always been popular in the past, especially among Scandinavians. Now there are more Russians coming, and they tend to not speak English or spend so much time on the beachfront, so we close earlier than before. As one of our signs says: ''Very good bar, very good drink, very good food.''

What Phuketwan says: The southern beaches may be packed cheek to cheek with tourists on loungers but at Nai Yang, there's a spaciousness and charm beneath the tall pines, and no jetskis. Eating here at lunchtime is pleasant and especially romantic by night. If you like peace, this is an excellent beach option. The people are friendly but making money doesn't seem quite so important. There's a long, well-equipped bar that leads through to seating on the sand. A lot more places on Phuket were like this 10 years ago.

How to find it: It's possible to land at the airport and be eating breakfast, lunch or dinner on the beach at Nai Yang within about 10 minutes. Amazingly, the southern end of the island has been developed much more rapidly by people who have sped past this great stretch of sand at Nai Yang. Mr Kobi's Bar is in about the middle of the rank of beach restaurants along the shorefront.

Parking: The road narrows but there's usually space under the pines.
