My husband and I along with our best friends traveled to Koh Lanta and stayed at Lanta Castaway resort. During our stay we decided to eat at the Beachcomber along with mingling at their Madbull beach bar. We found the best Thai food right at the resort hands down! We decided to try a few other restaurants while on Koh... More

The Beachcomber Restaurant at Lanta Castaway offered incredible food. Both Thai food and other options, the restaurant offered the best food of any restaurant we experienced on the island...and my expectations are very high. Also very convenient, given my wife and I stayed at the resort (Lanta Castaway) there and didn't necessarily need to leave the resort/island to find great... More

Food- The menu at the Beachcomber was very diverse and this resort offered a lot of different options which was great since we ate there everyday for two weeks. Everything is made from scratch and real Thai food. They also offer Tex Mex food which was great in Thailand to have. They also have spaghetti and hamburgers and tuna sandwiches... More

After a week of Thai food, I fancied something different and had the urge for Mexican. This, together with Chili's in Saladan, seems to be the only Mexican on the island. Foodwise it's not bad - not the best Tex Mex in the world but pretty tasty. I shared a chilichanga, some enchiladas and a quesadilla. They put a fair... More

We have been to Koh Lanta five years in a row and The Beachcomber restaurant feels like our living room! We love to sit outside by the bar whenever possible. There we can read, play cards and just relax when waiting for lunch or dinner. This is a great spot for watching the sun go down. The food is great... More

Came here for lunch and there were flies all over the place. I had to spend majority of my time chasing flies away from my food. I ordered nachos which were very average.

We went here last week due to recommendation from fellow travellers. The food was great, but the view is what really made it! Lovely relaxing place to sit to watch the sun set. Would highly recommend a visit here if you are in Koh Lanta.
