Food & Drink

About Food, Drinks and Nightlife in Nan. Food varies from breakfast to dinner, although for lunch Nan town is a bit weird place. There are many noodle shops but there are actually not much proper restaurants that serve lunch. And places for Food & Drink are spread over Nan town, hidden in small streets. As of Western food Nan is also a bit difficult as there are not much restaurants serving Western food. But luckily times are changing and there are starting to come more restaurants, pubs and coffee shops.
  • As Nan is not (yet) a tourist destination for foreigners you might experience that staff at restaurants or coffee shops are not or limited able to speak English.
  • We strive to make an comprehensive review with photos and contact information about all places for Food & Drink. 
  • Almost all places for Food & Drink with a link have been visited & checked by us.

Where to eat & drink in Nan province, North Thailand


As with all things in Nan town also restaurants, pubs and coffee shops are a bit spread over Nan town. But there are a few areas that are recommended as local Thai style areas to have a look for dinner :
  • Night Market / Noodle Street (Phakong road) 
  • Riverside Boulevard (east-side along the Nan River, directly north of the main bridge ).
Most restaurants are cheap in the price range of a simple Thai food for 50 - 80 Thai baht per person excl. drinks. Some restaurants that serve western food might be a bit less cheap. And a good beefsteak is about the same price as in a good restaurant in Bangkok.
