Dec 2015 Update. Still in the same location and with the same funky, artistic decor. It’s got a very good name for itself and you’re guaranteed a great meal in unique surroundings.
One for anyone finding themselves in Klong Son and looking for a place to eat which isn’t too ‘local’ this is the place for you. There isn’t a big choice of places to eat in Klong Son village and Blues Blues is the one good value, funky little place that is popular with tourists, expats and Thais alike. The main attraction is the decor, all of which is produced by the owner. All available walls are covered in paintings of all sizes and styles. Some abstract, some scenes from daily life, some are caricatures of the type of people found on Koh Chang. All are interesting. In addition the the paintings, the tropical garden is littered with statues made from concrete. Everything is for sale.
The food,a good selection of Thai dishes, is sensibly priced and tasty. Perfectly acceptable but nothing exceptional or unique. All in all a very nice spot for lunch if you happen to be in the area – i.e. heading to Baan Kwan Chang Elephant Camp or the nearby waterfall or staying in the area. But not worth travelling there specifically for the food.
Price: $ – $$
Location: Take the inland road adjacent to the 7-eleven in Klong Son village. Follow this for about 800 metres, Blues Blues is on the right.
These restaurant reviews are just my thoughts on a place at the time I visited. I’ll mention if I know the owner well or get any freebies. But for the most of the time I am happy to play tourist and don’t mention this site at all. Obviously it isn’t possible to sample every dish on the menu and the type of food you have for lunch will differ to evening. In addition, owners and more importantly chefs, can change and your experience may differ from mine. If it does, post a comment below.
