We came for dinner one day, then again for breakfast and dinner the next day. It was that good. The food is very reasonably priced and everything we ate was delicious. We have lived in Thailand for 3 years and always seek out the best Thai food. The tofu in garlic sauce was great, as well as the Gang Pa,... More

I have just eaten a very average Duck with Paneng Sauce at the Long Beach restsurant which was supposed to be a special and for 350 thb should have been pretty good. Not a lot of Paneng and little flavour. I won't be returning to this restaurant or the one in Klong Nin.

We had several dishes in this restaurant, and they were all very tastefull! From the massan curry to the sweet n sour chicken, we loved them all, and portions are quite big! The place itself is also nice!

Staying in Koh Lanta for 5 weeks this became our favorite restaurant. Top service and food, and after a few meals it's like coming home to a family. My wife loved the press coffee in the morning before the beach. If you are in Koh Lanta you just have to visit this place!

Really friendly staff and good Thai food. Great combination and highly recommended for an evening. The only reason we didn't go back is because we wanted to try somewhere new on our last night but we should have gone back to Cook Kai in Klong Nin.

We went to both restaurants on the island a total of 3 times, tried a variety of dishes and all were lovely, good quality and we were always served in good time.
