So I see that I'm in the minority for having this experience, but it's the one I had, nonetheless. My fiancé and I were looking for a place to have some drinks during our first night on Koh Lanta. We stumbled upon May's, sat at the bar, and ordered Jameson on the rocks. It didn't taste like Jameson at all... More

Nice friendly staff. Good quality fresh food cooked in front of you. Lovely cocktails (they don't scrimp on the alcohol!). We visited 4 times during our stay in koh lanta! Would recommend to anyone staying nearby. Also affordable. The chicken satay is delicious!

Mays is a small restaurant with great food and friendly hosts! We stopped randomly for lunch on our way back to the bay! It can be hard to spot but try not to miss! The food was very tasty and big portions! They serve a mix of Thai and western dishes!

May and her staff cooks you great thai food. You will experience big smiles, great tastes, low prices, happy people at the other tables (the restaurant is very popular) and you will hardly have to wait for you food for more than 5 or 10 minutes. Try the Panaeng Curry (chicken or shrimps), a soup or whatever you fancy. I... More

We spent Songkram here on advice from another Aussie we met a few days earlier. We had a great time. Food and drinks were great. Everyone was in such a good mood. We met so many nice people. Will hold very good memories of our day at Mays

Within walking distance of Long Beach and highly recommended by many. It did not disappoint and a lot of locals and expats from all over go there. They even served us dinner late when we just fooled around with cocktails on the beach too long.

During our staying on Lanta we went to May's often, because we could find so many things on the menu. The food is delicious, and the prices are good, but the portions were shrinking a bit. Every time when we went there, even, if we ordered the same dish, the quantity was less and less. But still, very nice food.

To be clear.....the view is not great if you're wanting romantic scenery.....its on the road with cars and bikes scooting past....but this place is real and down to earth with the family of mum and her daughters vooking in front of you in the out door kitchen. Good fresh food...perfectly cooked, great price.....what more do you need for a simple... More
