Other reviews are absolutely right. This restaurant is absolutely amazing. Stir fried vegetable with Thai herbs and Ko Yum soup were unbelievable. Chocolate pancakes with bananas were like from IHOP... Six stars from five.

Very good food, fresh fish, good price and a very nice restaurant owner. We ordered the barracuda and were not disappointed. If you are in the area looking for good food at a reasonable price, come here!

Very accommodating for children and non-spicy eaters. Delicious! Service could not have been nicer! Cashew chicken was great, and fresh fruit at start and end of meal was a super touch.

The best Thai food we had and the friendliest staff we met during our stay (visited ca 15 different restaurants in Ko Lanta). I took a glass of house white wine and I was really suprised because the wine was tasty and seemingly of a good quality. However, had no idea the label of the wine. As starters took deep... More

Honestly amazing- the best food we had in Thailand. We ordered several dishes in a tapas style manner and loved each one. In particular the duck in tamarind sauce and the prawn spring rolls, with nice dipping sauces. The owners were incredibly friendly, the prices reasonable and drinks great. There are a lot of restaurants on the road but would... More

If you visit Ko Lanta, you need to eat fresh bbq fish in that restaurant. We had the best fish of all time and a couple of great lassies and payed only 7$ per person. It is unbelieveble! When we visit Ko Lanta again, we will definitly come back.

We are here last evening based on other Tripadvisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed. The owner as super (but not over) friendly, the restaurant was spotless, and the menu choices were enormous. My husband had the duck in tamarind sauce and I had the hot pan shrimp in sweet and sour sauce, served in a piping hot skillet. Both dishes... More

We ordered the hot plate vegetarian stir fry which was full of incredibly fresh variety of vegetables and also the Pineapple fried rice which was served in a pineapple. The waiter was so kind and caring and explained all the ingredients in each meal to us. He was very knowledgeable about all the meals and even asked if my girlfriend... More
