Need a break from thai food . . . .

Being wheat intolerant, you can only eat rice so many times. The owner of the Twin Bay pointed me in the direction on the Fat Monkey and I was not disappointed. I ordered a bun-less burger and chunky chips and was in food heaven. The owner asked me if everything was alright and it was all I could... read more

Me and my Boyfriend had a snack here yesterday. Good portion of food and very pleasant ambiance, but its a littlebit expensive compare to other restaurants we already tried here in the Island. You should Try their French fries with their special garlic mayo :) the best I had soo far..

Quite possibly the best pizza I've had anywhere in South East Asia. They got it absolutely spot on. The staff were very friendly and the service was quick. Would recommend to anyone looking for good western food in Koh Lanta.

Our hotel Twin Bay recommended this place, we loved the vibe and atmosphere of the restaurant. The menu is rather large - the mojitos great. Chilli beef starter was delicious. Burgers are outstanding. Service efficient and friendly. Not the cheapest place on the island but great evening and would recommend.

Top 10 burgers in the world! Those served here could be easily served in NY, London or Berlin. Great drinks as well. And the place is very good looking.

On the whole the food was very good and well presented. I had read good things about the burgers so thought I should try one, and definitely agree they are very nice (and huge!). However I did notice that there was no mention of how I would like it cooked, and it came pretty much well done, which is a... More

The stuff was unbelievably rude and slow. The serving is big but the quality not too good. I would recommend this place for burgers lovers. Thai food was worser than in the other places we have been to. I am surprised this place has such a high position here. It is not terrible but it is definitely not very good.... More

Dear Valued Guest: I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your time with us, we have been away a few nights in the last weeks so I cannot be sure whether I was one of the rude or slow staff you encountered. I have however interrogated my manager and she is adamant that at no point in the last two... More

My boyfriend and I had eaten thai food for every meal for the last week and decided to treat ourselves to a western meal here. The setting is beautiful, really nicely decorated and the staff friendly. I ordered a veggie burger but wanted one of the pre-set garnishes that included salami. I asked if I could change the salami to... More
