Gop Pochana Restaurant Phang Nga Thailand (กอบโภชนา)

Gop Pochana is a popular restaurant in Phang Nga and it is middle of nowhere and located next to the PT petrol station. It is either Gop Pochana or Kop Pochana and their Thai name is กอบโภชนา. Going to the restaurant from Khao Lak, we drove thru plantations and estates using shortcuts as recommended by Google Map and it took us around 30 to 40 minutes from Khao Lak.

Gop Pochana restaurant is one of the popular local restaurants that is listed in the Michelin Guide Thailand 2019 for the first time. This restaurant has been around for years and they are recommended by our local friends. Gop Pochana is awarded Michelin Plate by the Michelin Guide Thailand.

Gop Pochana Restaurant is the one of the 15 restaurants and street food we reviewed listed in Michelin Guide Thailand 2019. This is our thirteenth restaurant review and there will be two restaurants review coming soon.

It is a small restaurant next to the PT Petrol Station. The signage of the restaurant is very colourful and the restaurant was busy when we were there for lunch (as we were on our way to Phuket).

We ordered three dishes. Many locals recommend us to order the Stir fried fish maw and we also ordered Stir fried shrimp with herbal coconut curry and Prawn or Shrimp Cake.

Let’s start with the Stir Fried Shrimp with herbal coconut curry. If you look at the picture, the size of the shrimp is large and it is very fresh. The taste of the coconut curry is strong, creamy and spicy with hints of the herbal taste. We enjoyed this very much especially with rice.

The stir fried fish maw is something you must order in Gop Pochana. We usually cook fish maw with seafood in Malaysia or Singapore but they stir fried it with chicken and prawn. You get the texture of the fish maw and the taste is flavourful and fragrant with fish sauce.

Lastly, is the shrimp cake. We tasted many shrimp cakes in Thailand and this is probably the best. It is crispy on the outer layer and you can taste the texture and freshness of the shrimp. Instead of the usual sweet Thai sauce, they offer the spicy chili sauce which intensifies the taste.

The total bill comes to around THB 500 for three dishes which is very reasonable considering we ordered two plates of shrimp dishes. The food here is good and the stir fried fish maw is a must order. They open from 8.30 am to 7.30 pm.

How do we travel around in Phang Nga and Phuket? The best way to travel around Phuket and Phang Nga is by renting a car. There are many car rentals in Phuket International Airport and we usually book Thai Rent A Car as it is one of the largest car rental companies in Thailand. They have over 32 branches with over 8000 cars in their fleet.

Where do we stay in Khao Lak? We stayed in this new resort called La Vela Khao Lak and it is a beautiful boutique hotel by the beach. You can book via Agoda at https://www.agoda.com/la-vela-khao-lak/hotel/khao-lak-th.html?cid=1538606
