Nicest surroundings

Nice well cooked meals and we went there for 3 evening meals (including Valentines Day) and lunch on the day we left. The ambience is the best of any local restaurants, service fine, cost reasonable for the overall package. As a non-smoker I think the restaurant could be improved by making one... read more

Yes I know why you're considering it. You've walked along the main road and it certainly stands out with its fancy frontage, garden and Chinese lanterns and you think that the way it looks will reflect in the food. Well it doesn't, it really doesn't. This is poor Chinese/generic asian at its most bland and poorly presented. You'll have to... More

Great good and good atmosphere. $99 for two (very large) tiger prawns in spicy sauce is pretty expensive!! Confirm price when ordering, my mistake..

Food is good. Great tiger prawns and fish, but compared to all the other Chinese fish places quite overpriced. Scenery is nice though.

Putumayo is one of the more impressive-looking restaurants on this stretch of Pantai Cenang. The menu has a bit of Thai, a bit of Chinese, and some Western dishes. Not the most exciting selection but there's something for everyone. We had the green mango salad, the mixed vegetable curry, and the fried udon noodles with seafood. Service was great, the... More

I have eaten here every time i visit Langkawi. I love the little roadside waruings up and down the Pantai Cenang strip but for a really special night this place is the best. A great mixture of Malaysian, Thai and western dishes. The service is spot on and the staff very attentive. We will eb back

I have ordered a Steak. It costed me RM48 (Disclude Tax) and taste so bad. However, the atmosphere there is nice! Love the Love-shaped Christmas Tree. I guess the christmas tree is being recycled as a valentine decor.
