Great Thai food

Love the food here. Never fail to dine here whenever we are in Langkawi. Our exceptional favourites are the mango salad & the sticky rice with mango

The staff here speaking thai languange and very friendly. Their foods are very very delicious and reasonable price. The most satisfied langkawi restaurant I and family had dine in. Their plain water serve with some pandan leaf taste. You have to request less spicy if U are not really like to eat spicy. And don't be so early to reach... 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

Very original Thai Food. I love the tomyam very much! and the otak-otak alike seafood pack (RM 25 each), worth a try :) Reminder: try to do reservation to avoid waiting. Lucky me that there is still a small vacant table to accommodate 4 of us, most of the tables are reserved. i've waited like 30minutes (not too long though)... More

The food was all pretty good. There wasn't a single dish I did not like. Even the desert of the day (mango glutinous rice) was really good. However there was not a dish I was hooked on either. Perhaps because the food was served earlier for my party, so it was not hot anymore when we started eating. Recommended nevertheless!... More

This is a large malaysianised Thai restaurant in langkawi. There are a lot of restaurants in langkawi kuah area but not many with this wide range of food. Seafood is fresh and reasonably priced. But do watch out for the level of spiciness. We did try a few other places but this is the best by far. The spicy lemon... More
