“nice food, nice place, not so good view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Place looks nice and clean. Diner was great, food was good, service was good. Only downside was view when dining outside. The view consists of a large parking area. We also had a lot of mosquitoes flying around. If you like spicy food, try the local dishes! I would also recommend a visit to the bathroom.

“Great atmosphere, delicious food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We came to the Sun Cafe for late afternoon drinks and snacks. It has a great atmosphere and the food was delicious. If we spent more time on Langkawi, we definitely would have came back for dinner. The service was fantastic and we had a lovely chat with Sasha who runs the cafe. She works very hard and is definitely a main reason why the place is doing so well!

“Fresh Delicious Flavours and Friendly Unobtrusive Service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

This is actually my second time here, having tried it during my previous trip back in December 2012. I loved the inviting open air breezy feeling of this cafe and its quirky decor. Last time I had gone for lunch ordering one of their burgers and it was delicious. This time I went for dinner, and the ambience was no less detracted. It was a fairly busy night but again the service was splendid and prompt with the waiter being friendly but not overly so. I ordered a "white" pizza which was a tomatoless pie. It was really good, hearty and sprinkled generously with italian herbs. I loved it. Price-wise it was decent and good value for money. Will I come back? Definitely. A must do pit stop in Langkawi.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Place has a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. They have a variety of food; mainly western food with some local food. We had the bruschetta and chicken cordon bleu; both were very tasty. Convenient for those who stay along Pantai Tengah.

“Still Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We were delighted to be back in Langkawi and couldn't wait to return to Sun Cafe for its fantastic food and people. Everything was just as good as before and we enjoyed several evenings sampling the wonderful food and chatting to Fousey, Sasha and the rest of the lovely staff.

This year we enjoyed:-

Tempura Veg - the best I have ever had!
Pumpkin Soup
Leek and Potato Soup
Malaysian Vegetable Curry
Mee Goreng
Peppercorn Steak
Teriyaki Steak
Lava Cake and Ice cream
Tropical Fruit and Ice cream

All of the food was first class and very inexpensive. This is a great place for lunch, dinner or drinks all of which are served in stylish surroundings. Give it a try. If you do, Im sure you will be back for more of the wonderful hospitality and brilliant food. We will be!
