I had the chicken tomyam -soup. It had like half rainforest of twigs, i guess they were bamboo? Anyway you cant eat the twigs and it had also a ton of coriander. Tomatoes tasted old and chicken was chewy like gum. They were out of most of the ingredients like beef and drinks. Yes, drinks. No water?! Atmosphere was chaotic... More

This restaurant is now under a new management. My husband and I were here twice this week and pretty happy with it. Their foods come in small, medium and large portions. Small is enough for 2-3 people and around RM10-12, depending on what you get. We liked their red and green curry the best. They were really thick and tasty.... More

I forgot to warn my family to give this Thai Restaurant a miss as the charges often does not make sense. We were charged RM92.00 for lunch. After we asked the cashier how does it becomes RM92.00 she simply said "that is how it is". We then asked how much each individual meals cost, like a piece of fried chicken,... More

You probably need a car to get there as its out of the way from the normal tourist strip. Delicious baked seafood with generous portions of fried rice.

We are staying at Langkawi Chantique and spotted this place on the way into town for dinner last night. The food is tasty with large portions and better bake than the main strip. My only gripe would be that there is very little vegetarian choice but as it is primarily a seafood restaurant that is my own problem!

Be carefully when you take your lunch here. They have so many dishes. We ended paying for 2 person for our lunch at RM40. The deep fried fish, cost me RM25 per fish. For me it's very expensive. Ask them first before you choose your side dishes. Their workers almost all Siamese.

Best food we found in Cenang beach. Unlike many other restaurants in Cenang they had Delicious food with a reasonable price. We visited this place several times and left every time with a smile.
