Big portions of great Thai food for cheap and very good service :) we went twice in the end Including Tom yam soup, Koh soi and spring rolls, really recommend this place if you're looking for somewhere to try first in Pai with good Thai food.

I had the green papaya pad Thai and it was delicious. Not much chili added so catering to inexperienced Thai foodies. With added fresh chili oil it was delicious. Lovely service. Had a ginger tea with lime and honey to finish - yum.

I was hesitant to try the banana flower salad but I am so glad I did because it was devine! I highly recommend this place as... More

On my many visits to Pai, i have eaten here several times........I have always found the food to be good fresh, and the next level up from the usual traveler's fare served at many restaurants in Pai. If you want to get away from the usual backpackers food,more towards real Thai (only towards)...this is worth a visit

My partner and myself frequainted Charlie and Lek as the food was delicious, especially the massamen curry, which we both enjoyed.

The smoothies were the best we... More

We chose this restaurant based on the amazing reviews on here. What we got was a poor imitation of that. We've seen it many times in Thailand: "cooking schools" feeling the need to add ingredients into meals that blatantly DO NOT need them. We ordered the massaman and the Penang. Two of the most simple dishes. Penang is basically sauce... More

I ordered one veg Pad Thai, one deep fried pork and one green curry chicken plus one dragon fruit shake, I finished all on my own... More

We asked our host for a good shan food in pai because with our experience, shan food has greater variety, more sophisticated flavour and more veges. We weren't dissapointed with c&l. Top dish was soya bean paste salad. Ohhh my sooo good. Though everything we tried on the menu was amazing. A definite go to when in pai.
