Our Favorite

Maybe our best meal on Langkawi. A beautifully done restaurant on the main street. Everyone loved what they ordered, particularly the mango chicken. Highly recommended!

Visited on 2-jan-15 for a dinner date with my wife. Got our seats shortly and the food was served within 20 minutes as informed while we ordered. Service by staff was good. The food was warm when served and tasted well. We had the Thai fried rice, tiger prawn and jumbo prawns. Overall a good experience.

Just eaten here at Putumayo. Awe was our waiter. Not only was he interested in U.S. and where we were from, he provided great recommendations on the food and wine. The food was absolutely delicious, with fantastic spices and mouthwatering flavours. We will be back here again.

Tried their signature bbq lobster. One of the worst i hv tried. meat is so tough that you might need some time to peel off the meat from the shell. Questioned the server, their reply was its supposedly to be in this manner and ensure me the lobster is fresh which i highly doubt so. Can always try the restaurant... More

We had garlic prawns which were as big as a more ton bay bug, some noodles and a green vegetable they bring in from Thailand which was sensational.
