First time we came there by accident, second time we came back as friends. Excellent food from the helpful and charming hosts. They gave a lot of reasonable advice for what to visit on Langkawi and even gave us a cheap ride home, so that we did not have to go and look for a taxi in the dark.

First visited May Yi just last week as I was craving for some affordable Chinese food in a local Chinese setting. Had a generous portion of char koay teow which was simple, hearty and tasty, exactly what I needed for that Sunday evening supper. Asked for add-on quantity, so it came up to RM8.

First we got there by accident, only to drink beer, but this place soon became our favourite restaurant. Especially chinese chicken and duck were delicious indeed. Leon and his wife try their best for every client. A good place to enjoy local atmosphere.

My husband, daughter and myself are regular visitors to Langkawi and our holiday would never be complete without at least one trip to this restaurant. The restaurant is situated roadside on the outskirts of Kuah and is the perfect place to sit and watch the locals whilst enjoying one of the best chicken curries we have ever tasted. You will...

As for the chicken curry I can honestly say the best I've tasted x The only fault is Leon the owner will not give... More
