2. Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant

Founded in 2006, this restaurant is nestled in a pond surrounded by a lush green forest, and is reminiscent of a Thai floating wet market. They are an organic restaurant as they rear their own free-range chickens, and keep a fish farm as well as a vegetable farm where they grow fresh produce.

As their name implies, this place serves authentic Thai cuisine and delicacies, including spicy tom yam soup, mango slice salad with fried tilapia fish, mango sticky rice, and much more. They mostly serve seafood, and catch the fish straight from the pond beneath you!

What's really cool is that they ride across the pond in small boats to serve your meals directly from the kitchen.
