We ate at the Box and thought the food was good but very overpriced for where it is, on the walking street in Koh Lipe. Having previously eaten fresh fish at traditional Thai restaurants on the sea front of the island, we could not understand why we paid a lot more to have tapas in this noisy and hot restaurant!...

We stayed at Koh Lipe for 8 days, and visited The Box often because they had a great happy-hour offer from 5pm to 7pm. We fell in love with their mojitos, and we also tried the food and it was great. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was amazing.

Only recently joined trip advisor so this is one of my first reviews, even tho we stayed months ago. I can only think that the 4 stars are for the food in the restaurant, which looked very nice and was always busy. The accommodation side of things is very different though. The water works for this place is very 'fragile'.... More

I stayed here recently for 6 nights and was very happy the choice. The location on Walking Street is good. Rooms are quite basic but comfortable. An issue with the lock on the first night was fixed within minutes. Breakfast was among the better B&B breakfasts we had in Thailand, good selection, with decent coffee included. We ate dinner here... More

This is by far one of my favorite restaurants on Koh Lipe. I have now enjoyed many different meals there and have always been pleasantly surprised by the quality and combination of ingredients. I find the ambiance in the dining room to be very pleasant, clean and inviting. The waiters and kitchen staff are very friendly. I always look forward... More

The mojito's here were fantastic, a few of these and the night is just beginning. A free tapas sampler was an added bonus. There was a good selection of beers as well and the cocktails looked great. The food looked great and was fantastic, the Vegi burger was my favourite and yes, I know it's a tapas bar. Now as... More

As we arrived on the island, we had no clue how to navigate in this little island but Javier (the owner) was already there waiting to pick us up with the little passenger bike. So it was pretty awesome! The location! It was is perfect in my opinion, smacked right in the middle of The Walking Street of the island.... More

The Box is located in the middle of walking street Koh Lipe, a very convenience resort to stay if u don't wish to walk too much. I and my hubby stayed there for 2 nights, no complain for the room and etc, but a bit disappointing for their breakfast, super simple and we need to add on order from the... More
