We stumbled across this place on the beach thinking it looked charming and fun with the lanterns on the beach and decided to give it a try and have a drink at the bar. We were hugely disappointed, the staff were rude and the prices were extremely high, we almost got the feeling we were being taken for a ride!... More

We have been back to Same Same twice now for dinner. Tranquil setting on the beach and food is very fresh and tasty. Highly recommend the Thai Spicy salad, whole red snapper, morning glory and the curries are yummy. Prices are a bit more expensive than some of the other restaurants but the quality of the food is good so... More

We went to Same Same But Different for a lunch while scootering around the island. The service was a bit slow and nothing special. Prices were a bit high compared to some of the better restaurants in Koh Lanta. Food was ok.

Our favorite restaurants on Kantiang Bay. Food is delicious, great choice of cocktails. They have a fantastic BBQ which is some of the best fish we have ever had. Staff are friendly and remembered what we liked. Can't wait to return.
