Very much enjoyed the meal. Beautiful setting along the water in Simpson Bay. This food is spicy so do not set by U.S. Standards. At home I usually ask for hot but thankfully followed another review on trip advisor and asked for medium heat. Medium was the perfect choice for an enjoyable spicy level. We will make this a stop...

Took my wife for her birthday and it didn't disappoint. Service was great, food was awesome and you dictate the heat you desire from mild to hot. The view of the lagoon and the fresh air was very romantic. Prices were very affordable. It's amust do on Saint Martin.

This Thai restaurant is excellent. Situated on the water, you can sit right beside the bay. The food is great, the service excellent... we went back twice during our week on the island. With so many wonderful places to eat, that says a lot!!

I found Panlaan by accident. Sometimes accidents are so gratifying!! I was not starving until I started eating, the food was so full of different flavours, so new to me, and so hot that I could not stop my enthusiasm by saying thank you to the waiters. Every one of them had a great attitude: fast, clean, elegant and friendly.... More

Fantastic location by the water. Nice atmosphere, very friendly staff. Variety of choices on the menu but not your usual Thai by European standards. We found the food a little disappointing.
