Good service, nice atmosphere over the water but my pad Thai was ok only, a bit bland and sticky. Shakes were good.

Nice place by the sea. Cats lying under the tables, layback feeling.
I ate fried noodle with seafood. Quite Bug portion. Good too. My daughter took a chicken burger with french fries. Liked Oy a lot!
Ice Cream and ice coffee for dessert. 10 points.
The waitresses had no hurry. In Europe I would have stressed about this, but hey, now I'm on vacation!

i first went to Catfish 7 years ago, a friend and i shared several Thai entrees;
i recall it was quite tasty, every item (although don't remember exactly what we ate)-
just recently revisited it at behest of my next door neighbors, who wanted some take-away orders- since one ordered falafel, i was intrigued and also ordered it-
and i must say it was quite tasty; although the hummous was a bit bland, it was improved by a nice squeeze of lime and some black pepper-
the pita was delightful, the salad fresh and the falafel balls were generous in number,
although there was no tahini in sight...
unlike other comments, i found the service was attentive and quick, and the view, on the harbor in Ko Lanta's main town Saladan, was sublime and ever-changing
i would suggest this place to anybody!
not a single cat came near my table, or in the restaurant (maybe it is different at night when it is cooler) but that wouldn't have bothered me, as it is par for the course throughout the country... better cats than dogs, IMO...

Nice touch with the bookstore in front and the restaurant facing towards the sea. But all the cats hanging around in the bookstore and restaurant... Not that charming, really.

The food was OK, the staff was OK, but not a "must-go" place unless you're seriously into cats. Then this is the place for you.
