My wife and I come down to Koh Lanta every few months as members of KoHub. May's is located just slightly to the south of KoHub, which makes it a very convenient place to eat dinner. My favorite meal at May's is the BBQ chicken, which is a large serving of smoked chicken with sides. My wife likes the Som... More

All the food here is prepared in an open kitchen on the middle of the restaurant. Our food was ready very quickly and everything was delicious, the chicken massaman in particular. However the service was slow despite there being a very large number of staff and only a few tables. None of the staff seemed to actually be working. There... More

I had a Paenang chicken curry, and my wife had a vegetarian pad Thai (they can make most dishes vegetarian, it seems). Both were delicious, and very reasonably priced. Service was very quick. We'll be back tomorrow.

We went to Mays Kitchen on the last night of our stay. The menu is extensive and they also do BBQ. I choose the chicken and my girlfriend had the prawns and sweetcorn to share. All tasted fantastic if you're in the area I'd definitely check it out!

My husband had been a little disappointed with the heat of curries up until we visited Mays.....he asked for it to be very hot and had the biggest smile when he tasted Mays offering 😊I has a lovely sweet and sour chicken which tasted nothing like the orange glupe we get back in UK....all very cheap too! Definitely visit again... More

I had the BBQ prawns and they were excellent! I loved the open kitchen and the chilled out ambiance. Would come again.

The food was ok. I had the Massaman, the taste was good but very greasy. The Papaya salad was very small and not the best we had. There are better and cheaper places to eat, but if you're hungry it will do.

We had two pizza's (massaman and green curry) and they were delicious. Service was surprisingly fast for a local thai restaurant and the staff was nice. Would definitely recommend.
