Going back again on Saturday night. Reservation is in and I am taking a friend who has not been here yet. I know she will love it, too. Great atmosphere and service along with incredible fresh dishes - well, you just can't beat it! We have been here for lunch and dinner at least 15 times but you just don't... More

The real deal! If you like thai food you can't missed this place. Its the only genuine (owned by a thai chef) in the Island. The food was out of this world. The satay, the spring rolls, pad thai, the curry chicken, the fried rice and I can keep writing the whole menu here because everything was simply excellent! Our... More

But this time our service was very slow and the waitress was slightly rude. I would return because the food is good and hopefully our service will be better next time

Wonderful real Thai food! I had vegetarian red/green curry. My friends had Pad Thai and another Thai dish. Can't remember the name. Outdoor seating on the water with small sofas to relax before/after or having a drink. Leon was out waiter both times and he was a very courteous and gentle soul. Drinks were terrific as was the food. Very... More

I have been to panlaan a number of times since it's arrival on the island. I have followed all of it's transitions. But now there is a new addition on the floor. I brought my date there on a Wednesday night. We sat at the bar and enjoyed a glass of wine before moving to couch outside. We then moved... More

But I did enjoy the pork.. Day we went, the lagoon was emanating foul effluent odor. It seems close to where the restaurant is located... More

Very sophisticated ambience of grey and orange settings overlooking the Simpson Bay. We went at dinner with well needed reservations and sat outside by the water. Had drinks and enjoyed Pad Thai ;appetizers and had no room for desserts. They have a sofa area if you prefer to drink there. The menu was explained as mild or hot or hotter... More
