Fang
A new, good & funky place to eat at is Uncle Jack's Hideaway
434137388_XRQr6-S.jpg

Uncle Jack is a great guy & has a sense of humour - note the hours of business.

Uncle Jack & The SEO Guy
434136303_34sVW-S.jpg

The SEO GUy was highly impressed with UJ's genuine moustache.

Captain Slash, what your missing out. 99 baht for a nice fish / beef / pork / chicken steak..
434136270_V7CgQ-S.jpg


Uncle Jack's Hideaway is new - open only 4 months & is located 170 metres south of the old Ritzy Pub & Restaurant, on the Fang city map of the GT Rider Golden Triangle guide map.

I'd be inclined to check out the brekky at Uncle Jack's Hideaway too, as breakfast in Fang has always been pathetic. Tried a breakfast at the Tangerine Ville hotel this morning & it was ok for 100 baht, but I suspect UJH's is much better.

Apologies for any confusion! This was supposed to show under the piece on Uncle Jack's Hideaway in Fang! Maybe one of these days I'll be able to use computers etc properly. So I'll try again & give him a good report.

An excellent recommendation! Phil & myself thought we'd have a look here just for a change. Food was excellent & very good value. Service was excellent & Uncle Jack is, indeed, a really nice chap. Suggest anyone hungry in Fang should stop here.

Uncle Jacks is excellent! Food good & well priced + always has good videos/cds of 60/70's rockbands! He also has a guesthouse though I have never stayed there. The MC pair are there at least once a fortnight. I was last there on Tuesday with a friend from UK (on hired "Pikey" bike) en route to DoiMaeSalong for the night. My wife (Thai) also enjoys the food & good service there!

Uncle Jack's is temporarily closed, they will be re-opening in a new location "later this month."
Stay tuned for the "grand re-opening".

I'll be over-nighting in Fang with a group of about 12 in early December and looking for a decent eatery hopefully within walking distance from Khunyuw Place.

Looks like it'll be Birds Bar for breakfast before the off!

At last, somewhere decent for breakfast in Fang.
A convenient location, opposite the Chokthani hotel & 400 metres from the Khun Yuw hotel.
Plus plenty of parking.
Bird's has CLOSED. NO more decent brekky in Fang, I think.
The next best place may be Uncle Jacks, out on the bypass road, but maybe a bit too far for most people, myself included.

Galileo - the new upmarket, hiso air-con dining restaurant.

DSC_0292-2B.jpg


IMG_4064.jpg


A large smart spotlessly clean aircon establishment

IMG_4065.jpg


IMG_4066.jpg


Dinner for two - large servings = careful you don't over order!

IMG_4069.jpg


The menus is huge - Thai & Farang - & inexpensive we thought, although the food was only ordinary perhaps. But well worth checking out for a change of pace in Fang city.

Location:

R1089. On the North side of town, right hand (East) side, leaving town, next to the big new Sinthanee complex. 2.5 kms North of the main intersection / traffic lights in downtown Fang, 400 metres before the bypass road.

In the main street the Fang Cafe has closed & moved over to Suan Dok near by the BB Pub.

Closed: Zeed, + Tua Gao pub also looks as if it may be temporarily closed.

The other new night spot worth hitting is the Pool Country Bar in the main street.

IMG_4059.jpg


IMG_4060.jpg


The Cottage is quiet & perhaps is losing is losing business to the Fang Cafe & the Jeab next door + the Pra Nakon Fang, all within 150 metres from BB Pub at the "pub intersection"

Check 'em out Fang is a cool country town well worth visiting & over night-ing.

Some older posts here. Any recent recommendations for western food in Fang, lunch time? Uncle Jacks still open?

Thanks, but no interest in Sunny 555 Restaurant.

Rhino Pub and Bistro Fang.

This is great spot for a beer, tasty food, and a bit of music.

The Rhino Pub and Bistro was previously “The Cottage” which was an old favourite to many, and has been extensively renovated.

Its located directly across the road from Tesco on the main road heading into Fang.

The music is good, and unlike most places it’s not super loud so you can easily talk to one another.
