The location is not ideal. The restaurant is situated out to the main road. However, the food is top notch. I do not think I have ever got so tasty Thai food! Their red curry with chicken is to die for. Idem for their green curry soup with sea food. Served piping hot and with quite some chili bite equal... More

Just great Thai food. No Western food on the menu. Bigger portions than you normally get. Very genuine friendly staff. Very convenient: all dishes with a nice picture.

Ate here twice whilst visiting Koh Lanta and both times we had lovely food with good service and it's for a really good price. If you're in the area it's definitely worth a visit

We were a group of seven, four adults and three kids. When we arrived without a reservation it was very busy, and the waiter told us it would take about an hour to get food. We asked if we could have one of the dishes quickly as one of the kids was very hungry, and that was ok. We got... More

It was recommended by my lovely sister who stayed in Lanta for a few years. As she said "it's the best Thai restaurant in Koh Lanta. If you'd love to have the real Thai food, it's the first one that you must try." Actually, I am a kind of person who write a positive review. If I like, I will... More

We ate here twice. It's a simple place next to the main road in Klong Dao, so you don't come here for the view although "the garden" is pleasant enough. But what you do get is incredibly fresh, tasty Thai cooking produced from a tiny kitchen at the back and friendly service. It does get busy, so go early to... More

From our 3 weeks in Thailand, this was our favourite restaurant. On my two visits, I ate more than my fair share of the menu! The curries are excellent and good value. The owners (?) are very nice, even by Thai standards and recommended two great nearby bars that we wouldn't have found for late night drinks.

Friendly, family run Thai only restaurant with reasonable prices. Nice and somewhat unique interior. Paid 140 for a great Panaeng Curry with Rice. The Mai Tai Cocktail was also delicious.

We have eaten in many restaurants on Koh Lanta during our four week stay and have to say that this place is one of the best. Love the cocktails especially the Pina Coladas ! The food is very fresh and tasty. Most of the time I think you have to book as it does get very busy. The staff are... More

We visited this restaurant in Jan 2016. We were very happy to see that nothing has changed. Friendly service, excellent good and good prices. Propably the best massaman curry of Koh Lanta!
