Taste Bar & Grill

Fusion in Ao Bang Thao & Cherngtalay

Minimalist modern lines, a sophisticated but chilled-out vibe and a deliciously inventive fusion menu inspired by Thai and Mediterranean flavours make Taste a favourite Bang Thao address. The steaks, topped flatbreads and Nepalese-style vegetable curry are excellent, as are the enormous crispy-fresh salads and original starters (from fried Camembert to spicy coconut-grilled squid), and there's a good wine list.

Service can be hit and miss. A second branch operates in Kamala.
