We ordered papaya salad and said 5-6 chilis, one plate of yam seafood (seafood salad), and satay chicken. The papaya salad clearly had only one chili in it and you could not taste any spice at all. The yam seafood was basically just squid with 2 pieces of shrimp and again no chilis. After telling them that we didn't need... More

We ordered only 3 meal: grilled fish, steamed prawns and papaya salad. They brought grilled prawns and we asked to make steamed as in our order, then was fish... It was only fish on foil without any sous or herbal inside. Papaya salad wasn't awful but it wasn't tasty it was not interesting. And finally our prawn again - i... More

You just have to get over the waiting time. Go a hour or so before you want to eat (we were under an hour waiting) and have a beer or two whilst they're cooking. The food is worth the wait... Better than anything we found on the beach. Stir fry blue crab with curry powder - amazing. Prawn Penang -... More

We stay on Lanta every year for a couple of months and eat at Kritsana at least three times a week.The Thai food is truly the best quality and value for money on the island. At least 50% of the customers are regulars ( residents/long stays/ language schools/ dive school staff) who know their food and know that the waiting... More

Food here is great value for money and really tasty, but in the evenings you might have to wait for over an hour for your dish. For lunchtime it might be a better option; the service is slightly faster then. Try their green curry! <3

You might have to wait a while for your food, but thats not a bad thing as everything is made on the spot. Very atmospheric restaurant with fantastic local food.

This place was recommended to me by a local and I was told to go early as it gets busy - the tourists soon noticed it was popular with locals and followed by example! The staff were friendly and food was delicious, best Masaman curry I have had, we even went back again the next night

So I decided to eat local instead of going to the very western sea front for a pizza. Unfortunately I picked the wrong spot! Food took over 1 hour for 1 vegetable curry. My drink only came when I asked for the second time, and that was only a diet coke. The food was nice, but I could have had... More

We had the yellow curry and coconut curry seafood soup and they were excellent. Both were flavoured well, and the seafood was fresh. Lots of people were having BBQ food which looked great. It was busy and there was a wait, but you are on holiday, so kick back, order a beer or two and wait for delicious food to... More
