“Hot chicken chilly. Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

The owner recommended the home-made chicken in chilly spices. We took it in both a salad and a sandwich, with an added chedder cheese. The chicken was fantastic - hot and spicy and goes great with the cheese (well worth the extra cash).
Good value and nice people.

“I keep coming back!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

These guys know a thing or 2 about food, coffee and service. I have been coming to Lanta for 10yrs, and have been going to Asylum ( aka coffee asylum) for nearly as many. This couple know how to run a business. May the Thai owner is very sweet and accommodating, loves to play games and knows a thing or 2 in the kitchen. Sunset is my favourite time of the day to spend at Asylum. The cocktails are delish, music ambient, relaxing atmosphere. The home made Muesli is incredible, the BBQ's amazing value.
Now on Klong Dao beach.

“Fantastic BBQ and company ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We dropped in to here for a drink while walking along the beach and Michael asked us along to a barbecue later the same evening. Market day (Monday - but there are several) means fresh food and it definitely hit the spot. A large portion of prawns, chicken, squid and a fantastic piece of meaty mackerel... Served with corn on the cob and grilled aubergines. Several beers later and we found ourselves sitting at the bar talking to Michael and his wife, Mae, who were very hospitable hosts. Looking forward to our next visit there.
