This place is a little out the way but if you are staying on or near Pantai Tengah it's certainly the best breakfast selection going. The food was cheap, tasty and the service quick. We tried both the Malay and western breakfasts on offer and liked them both.

I wasn't sure that this place would live up to the hype of its reviews, but we ended up going there about five times during our week in Langkawi. It's a simple, friendly places that serves up good food morning, afternoon, and night. The prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly. The place was consistently crowded with people...

Wish we had found this wonderful place much sooner. Satay sauce was perfect as was the mix of beef and chicken rather than one or t'other. Main meal included a crispy sea bass fillet as well as cactus style fish with fried rice. We were not disappointed and both fishes were delicious. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived...

Found the Cactus on first night and ate there every night afterwards, along with many other regulars. Great atmosphere, good music and always made welcome by staff. Excellent Asian food dishes cooked to order at great value. Wide choice on menu with western food available if required. Red and white wine served at a very reasonable cost. You will not... More

We came here after we heard people mention it on a boat trip we were on so decided to come along. We certainly weren't disappointed. They have an eclectic menu with something for everyone. We tried the fried barracuda in pepper sauce and beef in black bean sauce; both delicious. Although there wasn't any choice, the wine they had was... More

I decided to dine here with my wife, and both of us were happy that we did so. The place is nothing out of the ordinary but the warmth of the owner and the family it operates makes it amazing. The food is fine. Must try their Satay, fried squid, and fried fish in oyster sauce. Drinks are reasonable priced... More

The cabonara source with very strong milk powder smell which I felt a bit over. The fried rice fail too, we can still see many white rice stick... More
