Beautiful restaurant in a remote location.

The Pavilion is part of the beautiful Datai hotel. The approach to the restaurant through this luxury hotel set in the rainforest canopy is jaw dropping and sets up the dinning experience nicely. The restaurant is like an open walled treehouse on stilts with the sea just visible through the trees... read more

The Thai food is really nice. The staff is really attentive, the place is so romantically quiet. We get to see the monkeys when dining there. The place though, is quite far from town. But will come back again for the food.

We have visited this restaurant many times and it was our first port of call on our first night back in Langkawi. The restaurant has open sides so that you can enjoy the views of the rainforest canopy and the Thai fishing boats in the distance. If you're lucky they may even be an odd flying squirrel gliding close by.... More

Set next to the main hotel foyer and pool is this superb restaurant which is built on stilts and overlooks the jungle surroundings. The staff are very attentive and the open air restaurant very authentic to its surroundings . They have a number of theme nights throughout the week and the menu choices are extensive for the normal a la... More

Our favourite restaurant at The Datai. Great service and staff and the food was fantastic. Big portions and worth every penny.

Really beautiful restaurant and Good Thai food. For Europeans that like spicy food medium spicy is more than enough. The only thing I disliked is the price of the water, 35 ringgits for a bottle of San pellegrino still water?, it seems crazy when the starters price are near 40 ringgits. Waiters really good and ambiance really romantic. Final price... More

We visited the Datai to go to this restaurant. Overall we enjoyed the food, the serves were huge ( beware) and the food a high standard,although it didn't blow my mind. The jungle pavilion is a lovely setting

For those well accustomed to Thai food, then this will be a let down in terms of food offerings. Find it somehow adjusted to the Malaysian palate in terms of taste. Found out that the chef is from Southern Thailand, hence the inclination. Although the ambience, the service standards will make you divert your attention to the food offerings.
