We were at the Same Same but Different restaurant a couple of times during our stay at Kantiang Bay and liked it very much. We were a group of four adults and three kids. We liked the large table and the sand below the table. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food came quick, drinks as well. The... More

We stayed on koh lanta for 5 days and ate here twice. The menu isn't that extensive but I kinda think that is safer for a chef! Vegetables all fresh and cooked really well. My husband had prawns and also the white snapper all of which is caught on the day & you can pick to order from the wooden... More

Great location, right on the beach. Crazy staff system that involves menu pushing and very little else. Prices are sky high and was shocked. 18 bhts is what you can pay at a market for buying coconuts prepared by the 10. 20 bahts for one with a straw rural going to 50 bahts in centres of population, maybe 60-80 in...

It was a relaxed place, nice access to the beautiful beach, but I found the various different waiters/waitresses confusing and when I ordered our drinks from the bar, I still had a menu pushed on me, even though I didn't want food.

We enjoyed the very relaxed atmosphere right next to the beach under a roof of palm leafs and the good Thai food. It is a nice option to the resaurants at the Pimalai resort.

Being located on the beach, this restaurant has a relaxed vibe, but also delicious food. We had three different courses of prawns and they were all wonderfully cooked and tasty. The staff are very friendly. And it was reasonably priced, as we payed around 900 baht, which is less than 25€. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Ko Lanta.

Uau, what a dish! We had the prawns with pepper and garlic sauce and this was great, the best we had in Thailand. It is a nice beach environment in a wonderful beach.

The location is perfect, situated on the beautiful beach of kantiang. The service was the worst we had in our life....there was no service!!! The staff didn't even show up at our table, we called them several times and were waiting for about one hour. The we left to the " Noon Sunset Point" and this restaurant was just amazing!!!!
