The Beachcomber restaurant at Lanta Castaway is a must eat place when visiting Koh Lanta. The breakfast had well rounded options from Thai, Western/American and Tex-Mex. My favorite breakfast dishes were the Thai Breakfast and the breakfast tacos. Lunch and dinner had a large selection that we wanted to try everything on the menu. The crew offered us to order...

This bar and restaurant is amazing. Great food, great staff! The food comes out as soon as it's made and the drinks are made right infront of you. The menu is diverse, offering homemade Thai dishes, Tex/Mex, and American food. We never left the resort because the food and drinks were so amazing.

This restaurant has amazing Thai and Western food. They specialize in Tex-Mex and the owner, Joe, brings it all back with him from Texas. I honestly haven't wanted to leave the restaurant or resort much because everything is so good and there's so much to choose from. The location on the beach is spectacular too and has a great view...

Location could not be better on the southern end of Long Beach. We walked along the beach through the surf there and back - some 1.5km each way. Wonderful. The food was superb. The pork and mango skewers was one of those meals that will stay in the memory for a long time. The staff are enthusiastic, energetic, and efficient... More
