Amazing.

After spending 6 weeks on the road we stayed in Koh Lanta and came across this amazing little French restaurant recommended to us from a American couple... I would have to say for western food in Thailand and coming from Chiang mai, Surat Thani, Krabi, Ao Nang, Bangkok, Koh Samui and Phuket ending... read more

Breakfast has fast become my favourite meal and travelling for extended periods means finding good breakfast is such a treat! This little gem is worth a visit! No matter where you are on the island, rent a scooter and head to the best breakfast spot on Koh Lanta. Shanti Shanti is a cozy French inspired spot (run by a beautiful... More

The french owner has the most delicious croissants baked fresh every morning. Get here early in the morning, as by around 9:30 they are gone. Crepes are made to order, and although not inherently Thai, are absolutely top notch. The friendly owner also serves up the best cappuccino's and conversation on Klong Nin. A must visit.

My boyfriend and I went here on our moped after reading about it on TA. It's easy to miss so keep your eyes out for it! It's a cute little bamboo restaurant. My boyfriend had the Nutella crepe and I had the Nutella with caramelized bananas which was amazing!!!! We also had mango, orange and lime (I think!) shakes which... More

We went to shanti shanti for breakfast, not a large menu, but a selection of crepes, smoothies, muesli, etc. They close for lunch and reopen at dinner. I didn't see a dinner menu so I cannot comment on that. The smoothies were good and the coffee authentic. Overall however I felt there are better places to go on the island,... More

We ended up here by chance, but had a fantastic evening. The french owner and his staff was very sweet and we had the most amazing burger. Everything was home made, and the beef was perfectly grilled. Definetely a must try if your looking for a break from Thai cuisine.

We enjoyed breakfast here while in Ko Lanta. My husband had a banana Nutella crepe and we shared an amazing muesli, yogurt, fruit bowl. It was huge and filled with tons of different tropical fruits - highly recommend! The lattes and smoothies were also quite tasty.

Really lovely meal here! We were made to feel very welcome in this quirky little place. The selection of food is a real nice break from Thai Cuisine and hits the spot. A little on the pricey side. The owner did stress that certain ingredients were imported which I can appreciate but in order to save on cost why not... More

Stopped here on the way back from dinner for desert which consisted of a lovely piece of cake and fabulous homemade pistachio ice cream and a crepe with Nutella and caramelized banana. It was delicious! The place is quirky with very helpful and friendly hosts, good music and great atmosphere.
