Thank you dear valued guest!
We are very proud to receive such a great review, knowing that you are true foodie, food journalist and even conduct your own cooking classes in USA.
Hope in the future that I or Mai that conducted the cooking class that you participated in can learn some of your knowledge in cooking, tips and tricks from you.

PS let me know if you want the recipe of the lemongrass margarita ;o)

Kind regards,
Junie

“Fresh local ingredients lovingly prepared”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

If you're visiting Koh Lanta, Time for lime is a must! Don't miss their scrumptious tasting menu served underneath the sheltering tree of lanterns. The lemongrass margarita is a perfect way to begin your evening at Time for Lime. If you get a chance, be sure to sign up for one of their brilliant cooking classes that will arm you with skills to bring to your home kitchen.

“Disappointing at best....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I am not sure why is there so much hype about this place. Our visit couple of nights ago was disappointing. Before I go ahead with my review- I would like to clarify that the review has nothing to do with the location or the charity it is associated with. Our review is only about the establishment and the services it offers.
Decorum: Average
If dining out with mozzies & wall lizards sitting on swinging lanterns is your thing then you will feel right at home. The steps taking you upstairs are more like "death stairs" then anything else. If you plan on drinking then make sure you have a minder helping you on your way out.
Service: Terrible
On our arrival we were told by staff at the bar to find ourselves a table upstairs which we did, but no sooner we were about to settle when we were approached by this English bloke telling us that the table was not fit for dining or something. Common sense would be to put a sign on the table but in reality common sense is not so common these days. Throughout the evening we noticed the same episode being played out with the arrival of new guests. Felt like "Groundhog day". Our host this English guy seemed quite disinterested most of the time- if this was my establishment I would not have this guy anywhere near my guests. I only saw him move faster and interested when he saw any of the new arrivals making themselves comfortable at the forbidden table in the corner. Maybe harassing customers was more to his liking...
Food: Average
The place only has a set tasting menu- there is no a la carte menu available. Also the size of dishes served lean more towards bite size than anything else. The food served is not breaking new grounds- its your standard Asian food. Nothing to write home about. Considering the price there are lots of better options available in close vaccinity such as Lym's Rice Bowel restaurant, Kwan's cooking kitchen to name the few. These places offer better tasting food and excellent service in comparison...
Overall, our experience at Time for Lime was nothing short of disappointment.

“Fantastic Food, Beautiful Location, Friendliest Staff Around & All for a good cause!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

My partner and I are absolute foodies and fell in love with Time for Lime's as soon as we had our first meal and went several times. We attempted to go for several days, but hadn't checked their opening times (they don't open until around 3pm and were closed on a Sunday) - but good things come to those who wait!

Their 6 course taster menu was a fantastic Asian fusion with the freshest of ingredients (the king mackerel was caught a few hours ago by sea gypsies!). The taster menu introduced me to some new dishes which I may not have tried before but will definitely be looking out for them now! Could not fault the food, ambiance or service!

The cooking teacher (Mai, I think) was such a character and as we were the last ones in the restaurant we had a chat with her for around 20mins. Ridiculously passionate about the food and such a warm person - you couldn't help but enjoy her company.

This was our favourite restaurant on Lanta - not just for the food but for feeling very welcome, great views and lovely ambiance.

Keep doing what you're doing guys (especially as it's all for a good cause!).

We will be back!
