Lovely food but inattentive service.

We are here twice and the food was really good. The best curries we had tasted on Koh lanta. The manager was very friendly and approachable. The service was slow and they don't come back to your table to check if everything is ok or if you need another drink therefore losing potential extra money... read more

30 minutes to have the smallest omelets ever.... There are 5 people in the restaurant, ourselves included. Instead of giving cooking lessons they should reduce their prices ( more expensive than krabi, phangan, tao, samui ) put the foot down, and respect their clients. Ps: both waitresses are stuffing their faces next to us while we are still waiting for... More

This is the worst restaurant experience that we both had in our life worldwide! Do not go unless you are willing to pay £25 for 4 prawns! We foolishly trusted the waiter with our order, despite there being no prices on the menu. The food was not the best, but good. When the bill came to £50 for 4 prawns,... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to comment on your experience here with us at Roi Thai. Although we are sorry for the bad experience, we feel that your comments are inaccurate and one-sided. In regard to your Tiger Prawn order, it appears that you had asked our service associate to add 4 Tiger Prawns to your... More

Roi Thai doesn't disappoint, as we have dined many times the last 4 years. Their food has always been really good, and used to be a reasonable value. This year we found a revamped menu, and the prices escalated, making them marginally more expensive than similar quality restaurants nearby. We have found all the dishes we have sampled to be...

I enjoyed my meal at Roi Thai, the mixed of spices was perfect, though could be too much for some. The place was packed yet the service was very good and the view of the beach and sea was very pleasant. I recommend it 100%.

Walked in when we couldn't find the restaurant we were looking for. Good friendly service and the food had lots of flavour. The barbequed fish was particularly good.

Heavily spruiked in front of restaurant to enter - I should have known better than to go in! Meal was very average, but the 'House Specialty' chicken dish was terrible! Very plain, no special spices, no taste at all, just tasteless chicken pieces, very expensive dish. When we complained it was very bland, they did not offer anything else or... More

This was our first experience of Pad Thai and Pad See Ew. There was a slight mix up with our meals, which were sorted very promptly, human error - nobody's perfect. Don't mind mistakes when they're rectified. The food was tasty and staff were friendly. Will return again when we go back to Lanta.

We had a cooking class at Roi Thai with Toy. He was the best teacher ever :D Our courses were Spring rolls, Red Curry sauce with chicken and TomYam-Soup. So pretty good set of the traditional thai foods. And they did get you from the hotel. ...And also get us back as well ;) 5/5 - no doubt.
