Came here because the Thai food in our nearby resort was good but too tamed-down for my taste (I guess they have to do that to please the majority of tourists). When we walked in, there were no other guests, and we had to search for anyone there to ask if they were even open. After settling in to our... More

The setting is beautiful, but the indifferent service was disappointing as everywhere else we ate or visited in Ko Lanta excelled in their quality of service. Walk to the other end of the beach for better service, atmosphere and cheaper food with similar views.

the food was solid thai food, but the atmosphere was what made this place. most memorable meal on our trip! It was on the far end of the island, though, so it was a bit hard to get to.

Great Thai food, some with a twist. Their shrimp carpaccio is very tasty! Make sure to book a table and get there in time to view the sunset.

We had a quick stop here just for a fruit lassi which was very nice and very tasty. The restaurant is on the beach and the tables are overlooking it, which is very scenic. The fruit lassi and the food we checked was quite expensive which made us not eat here

On a beautiful beach, this restaurant has a gorgeous setting, stylish but casual, great food & drinks and nice staff. The tables at the front overlooking the bay are best.

A nice beachfront restaurant but expensive. At peak season, difficult to get à table and the personel was not willing to helt out.

Very nice setting on the beach & we had lunch here twice due to the location. Unfortunately poor service and food was average.

Same same but different lives on its charm, wonderful view and location by the beautiful Kantiang Bay. The food is good and even great (Som Tum for example) and portions are big, but the price has gone up too much making it not worthwhile anymore. Too bad.
