Friends told us to visit May's Kitchen. So we were there today and so far I had my best Pad Thai Chicken on Lanta. My boyfriend ordered his classic best Thai food - Thai Basil Chicken with rice. Delicious too!! We highly recommend this place!

Awesome BBQ (cooked over open flame with a thai twist), friendly family, other very tasty thai food too. We also had the beef salad.

Got recommend by my hotel and I'm so glad they did! Great service, big smiles, super fast. Had barely signed into wifi when my meal was in front of me. Although pretty basic it was THE best chicken and cashews I've had in Thailand. Great mix of veggies and color as well as requested not spicy as I has been... More

This place has a nice selection of Thai and international food. The prices are normal for the area (90 to 120 baht dishes). The portions aren't very big, so it's a lighter meal here.

Eat the ribs. Don't debate it. Don't discuss it. Don't look at the menu. Just eat the ribs. (Ok, green curry was amazing, too.)

Just got back from dinner at May's. My dining partner had Tom Yam hot and spicy soup with chicken, and it was gorgeous, I know, I had a spoonful. I chose BBQ (actually cooked on a big BBQ) spare ribs which came with baked potato and coleslaw and the meat was fall off the bone perfect. No air con as... More

We visited with all intentions of eating some Thai curries or noodles but got tempted by the barbecue selection. I ordered the chicken, my guy ordered the fish. Both were good although I was hoping for a half chicken instead of a quarter. The coleslaw was good too and a nice little addition.

Had the chicken and ribs and both were very nice. The jacket potatoes were very nice as were the coleslaw and corn. Only downside was they ran out of bbq food around 8.30 so if that's what your going for I'd say to go early. Didn't affect us though so all good. Next door to the Irish embassy.

Thank Kristian A
