By far the best food we have had at Lankawi after one week! Rich, tasty and well-prepared! The kids also enjoyed the childrens menu including the pasta bolognaise which the 7-years old concluded was THE best she had ever had!

"Pia's the Padi" owner and chef, Jimmy, is a legend. He and his family serve wonderful, always fresh, authentic Indian delights to tickle your taste-buds. The road to the restaurant is one kilometre towards Tanjung Rhu from Ulu Melaka on the left just before a bridge and is located in the middle of rice-padis giving a great view and a... More

Food was tasty, staffed by friendly people. Pretty pricy for the type of food served, but overall we enjoyed it and thats what matters. Maybe the high price is to keep it operational as the location is a bit remote. Overall i would recommend it.

This is the first time I ever tasted a nice, delicious Indian food in Malaysia. We ordered Tomato Soup, Beef Rendang, Fish Butter Masala, Fresh Vegetable Salad, Cheese & Tomato Pizza & Mango Kulfi. All tasted perfect, except the beef rendang, a bit spicy but delicious. The beef was tender, the fish was very meaty, the kulfi : PERFECT, not... More

This is a family run restaurant at the edge of a large expanse of fields. It is great to visit during sunset as the large windows open out to a wonderful view. The menu has a great selection of local and european food with Veggie choices. The owner makes her own chocolate cakes and cheesecakes and they are both delicious.... More

When we arrived there, it's almost 1pm and the restaurant was pretty free. We walked in (we did call in before just in... More

It is a family restaurant with delicious food served! Great food with a good view of the padi field! We love the pineapple lime juice and gulfi! Chicken rendang, butter chicken, and the fish masala were really delicious!

We went to Pia's based on the trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Went as a group of 4. Arrived just after sunset. Ordered the rendang and the butter chicken masala with pakora to start. AMAZING. Plenty of food and a reasonably cheap price. The family (staff) all came and chatted to us. They're passionate about their food. It... More
