After seeing reviews on trip advisor my husband and I took a 5 minute ride in a taxi from the Westin hotel. Ordered spicy seafood salad & mango salad for entree which was enjoyable. Was totally disappointed when they told us 30 minutes after ordering, that they were out of green curry. Bugger! So I ordered the tomyam soup with... More

Best food we have had whilst in Langkawi and the service and overall price was also extremely good. We went without a table booking which was a gamble based upon how quiet it had been all week in the restaurants. When the taxi driver got us there he asked if we had a booking! Luckily they had a free table... More

We were in Langkawi for 3 days - the place was closed on the first day. Managed to taste the food on our last day. The food was good - not too spicy/hot, price reasonable. Some advised - make a reservation and be prepared to wait.

My favourite Thai restaurant in Kuah, Langkawi for years is Wan Thai. I always order their signature otak-otak served in a coconut - it is not easy to such food with similar quality elsewhere. The fish kerabu/salad was also good. Their's was a whole deepfried fish with lots of shredded mango. Another good offering there is the sotong kerabu/salad which... More

We visited the restaurant twice during our stay in Langkawi. First time was on 30 December and planned to have our dinner there. After waited for half an hour outside the restaurant, we were told that they are already fully booked and we should make reservation earlier next time. Immediately on the spot we make our reservation for lunch on... More
