Nice quicj and easy local restaurant - no fuss good service good food and quick service. Try their Papaya salad and Kway teow - loved it. 2 beers papaya salad and Kway teow was only 30 MYR. Be warned toilet standards on the island are very bad so tread carefully.

Well, saw the reviews here and decided that we should just drop by and give it a try since we're staying so close. My partner says that it should be a 2* Ordered 3 dishes for 2. Price wise was kinda similar to what we have back at home but the taste was just average. Ordered the beer chicken and... More

Having read some good reviews about this restaurant my family decided to go there for dinner last night. We were very happy with the delicious food, and quick and good service. We ordered stir fried sambal water convolulus (kangkung), Guiness chicken and sizzling egg tofu to go with plain rice, and 2 fresh coconut. We practically licked our plates clean!... More

We have eaten here for last seven years when we visit Langkawi. Food is always good, but maybe they tone down the chili's for the Europeans. Chicken and fish always good choice, also the vegetables are very fresh. The owner amazingly remembers us every year. Prices very reasonable.

We have very recently returned from Langkawi. We stayed at the Langkawi Holiday Villa. We ate at Boat Restaurant quite a few times & had drinks there in the evenings too. It's a great place & great value for money. The lady owner made us feel very welcome. She was always on the go, making sure that everyone was ok... More

This place is a gem. We have dined here several times and each time the food was great and the price was very reasonable. We were particularly impressed with the Guinness Chicken

We have eaten here twice in our 4 day stay. The staff have the biggest smiles and are really friendly. Really on the ball with pricing as it's no frills. Definitely worth a visit or 2. Eaten at a few places around and for local food with an excellent vibe this place can't be beaten.

All seafoods were freshly prepared and I really enjoyed it very much! Fish and chicken are the must. And the location is quite strategic too :) Keep goin!
