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.

The BBQ chicken is by far the best item on the menu. It's like Nando's - so tasty. The prawn BBQ was not as good but still okay. I also had a pork stir fry with chilli and garlic and was also delicious. Prices are good. Staff very friendly and one of the waitresses spoke excellent English.

The green curry and massaman dishes were delicious. It was fast, friendly, tasty. It's a convenient location if staying on long beach. Highly recommend.

This place is great, a little gem! Staff are lovely, it's a chilled vibe with an open kitchen where you can see all the cooking. As a big fan of mango sticky rice, this is the best I've had in Thailand. Fair prices too!

If you're staying near or on long beach May's Kitchen is worth a visit. It's a little restaurant with bamboo tables and chairs out the front and the kitchen in the middle of the room with lovely welcoming staff at the door. We ordered a green and red curry, which both came with rice, the service was very quick and... More

Visited this restaurant several times during our stay on Long Beach Ko Lanta. Food cooked fresh when ordered and served hot. Kitchen on view to restaurant patrons. Serves excellent Thai and western foods. A BBQ available in the evenings serving chicken seafood and meats. Great friendly service and a nice bar.

Not that hard to find since it's so popular. I can only agree with all other positive that's been said. Great food, both bbq and Thai at very reasonable prices. Drinks are excellent as well. Highly recommended!! Staff very friendly and fun and they really seem to take pride in a great experience for the customer. Will come back soon... More

We visited Mays kitchen for the first time this year and went back on 3 occasions. It's a popular place to eat with both young and older people. The food is cooked in open view of everyone with all fresh ingredients. May herself is always there to greet you whilst tending to the BBQ. This has become our favourite place... More
