Location is good, food is poor. Old oil, for the fries. Service was nice and friendly. We had to go after that to another restaurant.

Dined here with three families on a large table. A wide variety of adult and children's meals were ordered. I ordered lemon chicken, mixed veg, boiled rice and scallops in X O sauce. The lemon chicken was possibly the best I have ever eaten. The scallop dish had just four scallops in it and was a small serving but tasted... More

We should have become wary when they advised us that they had no rice left ( ever heard of a chinese restaurant without rice?!? ) but we perservered and were very disappointed. All of the food was soy sauce oversalty with no other flavours, quality of meat was dubious ( especially perfectly square cubes of chicken ), cocktails undrinkable (... More

In all our trips to Pulau Langkawi we stayed at Cenang Beach. A "must" see and try is Putumayo Restaurant located directly at the main street. The food experience is awesome and the service one of the best we faced in Malaysia. From the menu I want to point out the Garlic Tiger Prawns. For the service I want to... More

We ate at the Putumayo and the food was quite good and reasonably priced. The staff were very attentive and very friendly.

Having had some doubtful experiences in restaurants in this area it was great to find this restaurant with great variety and even better service. Our waiter Awe was one of the best we came across during our holiday in Lankawi. He even shared with us some Australian sayings he had and we added some more for him. He was delightful,... More

This restaurant looks great from the road :) like one of the best, but I'm sure there are better places for food. It was all very basic - there was nothing special with the food or on the menu. Good service and nice staff made it an enjoyable meal nonetheless!

This is our third visits and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The first time was great, second time was a miss but this time around definitely a 'hit'!!! We had mango chicken, tom yum king prawns and tofu with broccoli and steamed rice. The dishes are all delicious and full of flavors! The service is prompt and staff are very... More
