All You Can Eat In Thailand! Mu kata is one of my favourite Thai foods! หมูกระทะ บุฟเฟ่ต์ กันเองหมูกระทะ บุฟเฟ่ต์ กระบี่
This restaurant (Kan Eang Moo Kata) is one of my favourite Thai restaurants and is in Krabi Town, Thailand, there’s a map in the video showing its location at the 8:15 point. The Google Maps coordinates for the restaurant are: 8.083774, 98.900754

Moo kata (aka Mukata) is very popular among Thai people, but many people who travel in Thailand never discover it because the signs are usually only in Thai and not in English. In Thai, “moo kata” means “pork pan” and it is like a cross between Korean barbeque, hot pot and sukiyaki, all at the same time.

On the bottom is a bowl of burning charcoals and on top of that is a sombrero looking barbeque plate, with a dome and a moat around it. A soup is place into the moat and you get a kettle with more soup so you can keep adding more.

A piece of pork lard is placed at the center of the dome, which works as cooking oil. As the lard melts its oil drips from the top of the dome down to the soup area. This oils the dome to so that meat will not stick to the dome and burn and it also drips into the soup making it even tastier.

There is a large buffet area of meats, salads, vegetables and deserts and you can eat as much as you want. There are choices of chicken, pork (there are also Halal restaurants that don’t do pork, but have beef instead), seafood including squid, fish, mussels, prawns, sausages, fish balls, tofu, cabbage, morning glory, mushrooms, some other leafy vegetables and seaweed. You fill up your plate and return to your table where you can fry your food on the top of the dome, or cook it in the soup, sukiyaki style.

When your food is cooked you can eat it as a soup, or off a plate, with the dipping sauces that are provided. Make sure you only take what you can eat because there is usually a fine for not finishing everything on your plate. The price per person varies a bit between restaurants around Thailand, at this restaurant it is 159 Baht plus drinks.

Moo kata is very sociable, big groups of relatives or friends, sit for hours talking and laughing and slowly cooking and eating. It really is a great night out. If you’re visiting Thailand, definitely try mukata, it’s cheap and delicious!

The best Thai food is from Thailand! I think moo kata is definitely one of the best things to do in Thailand! Visit Thailand, you’ll love it!

If you’re looking into Thailand Hotels have a look at hotels and resorts in Krabi. The islands and beaches of Krabi are famous for Thailand holidays, the movie The Beach was filmed on a Krabi’s Koh Phi Phi Island.

Krabi is about 2-3 hours from Phuket by land or sea, and has world class accommodation standards comparable to what you find in Phuket hotels and resorts, but in a more relaxed environment.

some include wide soba type noodles. Oh those come out so tasty after simmering in the broth.

Nelson Kelly says:

I always wondered what do they put in the raw meat to marinate it…

kmg33uk says:

i love a thai BBQ……………. just thinking of those Glass Noodles, with prawns, squid, thai basil and spring onions with the pork and chicken juices dripping off into the gravy. mmmm. every time i go to pattaya i at least visit 3 times if you aint been,you dont know what your missing. but saying that it takes some practice…

Mich Ches says:

An oldie but a goodie looks fun makes getting out of the house all the merrier.

Samidella idella says:

I just bought one of these on Amazon as an impulse buy (along with a shabu shabu pot(Damn you Amazon at 3am!!!)). I've had Korean "BBQ" many times, but never Thai "BBQ". I'm hoping to have some friends over soon to make an evening out of it. Any suggestions on what to serve, particularly sauces, is welcome from anyone who would be so kind enough to share.

Sunee L says:

I've gone back to Thailand many times but haven't tried MhuKrata yet!

ddraguti says:

People like Darren are so precious. Man thanks for all these videos. I have only one question: do you use to tip?

John Robie says:

How long do you need to learn english?

bbface44 says:

Very nice Darren, so tempting..

laurie hamilton says:

How long do you cook the Pork & the Chicken for ?

michael wood says:

Looks very good.
Made me realize how Americans consider eating a quick process. shovel the food down and be done quickly.
This seems like a very long process that would make dinner last a looooong time.

petestrat07 says:

This was one of the more memorable eating experiences for me in Thailand. Ive just bought a Korean bbq for home use. Does anybody know where I can get some good recipes?

Daniel Ng says:

Is this the same as moo kata at Kuala Lumpur Kuchai Lama?

gk10002000 says:

these barbecues really are fantastic. Big C in pattya has a great place indoors. the best bbq sauce. If you can find an outdoor place, all the better, especially at night. get a bucket of beers on ice and share some with the friends and staff

Shaun Smith says:

is this in pattaya if so what's the address as I've googled the name and tried to find it on Google maps but nothing is coming up .

Sam Almen says:

Hi, what kind of fat you use at the begining?

taif rahman says:

Panz Girl says:

Nice, All you can eat Always sounds nice, I really like the map you put up, That was great, many times I wonder where you are……exactly, Lol. Lot of the places I would like to visit. thanks for the video.

Huberdina says:

It looks delicius, but one question, is It not dangerous to put all these raw pork products with the raw chicken on one platen? I have been in Thailand many years ago, so It was a plessure to watch this video, thank you for that!

Dawn Samuel says:

looks delicious .thanks for sharing

Jiao Foster says:

instead of dipping your chopstick after you touch the raw meat with. why not using 2 pair of chopstick to eat, one is for cooking raw meat, the other is for eating cooked meat.


Excellent ! The video is fantastic and informative. Thanks for sharing, mate !

Bogie Larnlua says:

Celine Martin says:
