“Delicious North Thai Food, Million Dollar View, Friendliest Owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We were introduced to this quaint little restaurant by our friends who couldn't get enough of the fantastic sunset views and happy hour priced beer. After coming here the first time we were hooked. The owner/cook is the sweetest lady from Northern Thailand and she makes some of the best Khao Soi we've ever had. We originally came for the sunset views (which are stunning) and beer and kind of stumbled upon the fact that they serve some of the best food on the island. I'd highly recommend this little gem when you are in Ko Lanta.

“Great food with good depth of flavour. A refreshing change from mediocre tourist restaurant food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

We came for the sunset and location on a long beach fairly empty of the usual tourist clutter. We stayed for the food which was personally presented and enjoyed some great northern thai style cooking. They do khao soy, if you've had the pleasure then this alone will probably be enough to draw you here.
The menu is not huge but all the better for it. We had a delicious Burmese style curry which was just ready after having been cooked all afternoon judging by the tenderness of the meat. It had a good chilli heat that had been properly cooked in rather than added at the last minute. Proper home cooking!
Most meals we have had in the restaurants here in koh lanya in particular are just variations on a theme from a very large menu. The quality here is much higher, if it's on the menu then I think it will be good. The quantity of food was good as well - larger portons than street food stalls so actually probably about the same value for money in the end. (meals were about 150 to 200 baht).
The beer was a little cheaper than the average as well which is always a bonus.
Unfortunately we leave koh lanta tomorrow but otherwise we would be back for lunch and more.
The location doesn't seemed to be marked on TripAdvisor as yet but it at the southern end of klong tob beach. When you drive south from long beach you will know it as the road is very close to the beach and there is very little development either side of the road. A few shops and fishermans boat. A long beach and a few trees. The beach is probably a nice place to spend the day but unfortunately we sped past earlier in the day en route to other destinations.
One suggestion - a smaller (cheaper) portion of calamari would be an excellent way to draw in the sundowners like us. After swimming in the sea I always want something crispy, fishy and salty with a sunset beer. Bliss.

“100% great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

THE place to enjoy a beautiful Lanta sunset. The owners are the nicest couple. So welcoming. They even reopened after closing to pffer us a nice cold beer. In pre cooled glasses. Perfect after a day on the beach. The fingerfood is amazing. The calamares were finger licking good. The tamarind sauce they serve with the fried tofu was probably the best sauce I ever had. The combination of the view, the great hosts and the amazing food was the reason to write my first review on tripadvisor. Best of luck to Beach House Restaurant!
