Romantic, good and quiet

It's a little pricier that the usual langkawi restaurant, but the decor and the atmosphere are worth it. Excellent food.

because that is what your mouth will be doing. chomping happily on most anything you order. also try the straits club next door at the temple tree, and if they have homemade ice cream, order it.

We were 6 adults and 5 kids. Food was excellent - local with a touch of fusion. Very inventively presented and delicious. Kids meals also interesting and healthy but pitched just right so fussy children weren't too suspicious. The staff were gorgeous - so kind. We arrived very early and they let us use the pool to entertain the kids... More

I would have stayed here so much longer if we had known earlier how magical this place is . Tranquil , authentic and spiritual together with a great place to eat.

I visited this restaurant over 10 years ago when Langkawi was still quiet but having visited the area of Cenang again to find its full of Chinese and Arabic cuisine, it was a god send to find this venue still there! It's on marsh land with reeds surrounding it and a small lake in front of the restaurant. It has... More

At our recent trip to Langkawi we stayed next door at Temple Tree and were told by some of the other guests there that Nam is a must. We are very glad we followed their advice - the food was fab! We ordered the seafood platter and the local tasting platter which both were great. Nice cocktails and yummy deserts... More

All meals ( and we had several) were great but the Laksa and the deserts are particularly good. Each meal is freshly prepared and the drinks menu compliments the food well. All served with a lovely smile and very much appreciated.

The resturant at Bon Ton was one of the best meals we had in Langkawi. The servers are friendly, the cocktails are tasty and the food is exceptional. Try the tasting platter and the local seafood dishes. Highly recommended! The accommodation is great too.

Christmas dinner was MYR199++ for set dinner. Rip-Off !! Most of the reviews here not very accurate. Maybe for fine dining, yes if you don't mind paying a hefty sum.
