Smack in the middle of bustling Patong, Home Dining is one of the most popular and inexpensive restaurants for a hearty lunch or dinner. Ravenous after our long drive from the airport, Home dining was a 3 minute walk from our hotel. Run by a Singaporean, the café serves local Thai as well as quite a few vegetarian dishes and fresh juices. The staff is very friendly and we even got a free fruit salad at the end of our meal.

Budget: 10 SGD/ head
