Palm Square Complex in Kata Town is about 10km from Patong Town, is where we were staying and it's a lovely drive over the mountains, just over a 20 minute drive. Kate Beach and the Town is well known for having lot's of graffiti work along the streets on the beach walls and many complexes around Kata Town are painted out with beautiful professional graffiti artwork like Palm Square that, I will be showing you, but first I will show you the graffiti artwork on the walls leading down and around the Palm Square complex.
The Palm Square complex was at one point a abandoned building till a Thai group bought it out and the builders and graffiti artist got very creative and today one section of this complex has been completed and turned into a very famous restaurant which is called the Palm Square Restaurant, it's known by the local, expats and many foreign tourist and they are still expanding. It is still one of a few places that has been opened all the way through despite this pandemic, it is well known for it's live music, great food, the great atmosphere and it's friendly helpful staff.
The inside bottom floor has been done in beautiful wooden floors the tables and chairs are nicely set all around this huge room giving everyone a good view of the live bands that play at nights and the food they serve, is a great mix of many dishes from Western, European and of course Asian cuisines catering for everyone's taste and likes and it is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner no bands play during the day it's just nice chill out music via stereo while sitting out on the tables and chairs either inside, outside or the top floor decking with a lovely breeze and stunning mountain views with the beach not so far in the distance.
Definitely a great place for coffee and breakfast, great meeting point with friends or girlfriend the top deck either inside under a shady canopy roof or out on the deck grabbing some vitamin D, you can bring your laptop and work comfortably with the chill out music, has great Wifi and the staff don't mind as long as your having coffee and breakfast. On the top floor you feel like your working on a tropical island underwater with the graffiti artwork around you, some of the window opening, in the back of the room have been closed up with bricks because the views were not great they were just looking over people's roofs so they graffiti, it looking like your looking out at the ocean how brilliant giving you that relaxed chilled out feeling.
They really turned this Palm Square Restaurant like nothing, I would ever see back in my part of the world the 3D graffiti was the best cars crashing through brick walls, Fire Dragons coming out at you from every corner, Turtles and Crabs swimming around the room, Tigers coming out of the closets, it was just a adrenaline rush hitting me in every room and on every floor of this building you would never think you were in a restaurant the imagination to have put this together was extraordinary.
It really was like walking through a art gallery, I loved this graffiti showing the old and the existing culture of Thailand, just looking at these paintings tells you the history.
I find all this so inviting when, I see a place like this, it makes you appreciated there culture and makes you feel welcome this was my best experience of graffiti artwork seen in Thailand, so far and my friends were not wrong, I thank them for bringing me to this intriguing restaurant and now, I will know where to come and get a tasty full on American or English breakfast at reasonable prices.
