Description: Happy turtle is located in Bailan bay on Koh Chang. We offer you real Thai food (if you ask for spicy it will be..), we also have a nice mix of western food.In our bar we have nice fresh coffee, cocktail/drinks , ice cream, milkshakes, fruit shakes.We use no MSG in the cooking and everything is prepared from scratch when orderd,,, so with a buzy restaurant you might have to wait a bit for the food. we think it is well worth it

“A friendly blend of Thailand and Sweden!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is a gem of a place: a super Thai restaurant (and cooking school!) and a great little bar with TV. We spent many a happy hour there watching the Australian Open Tennis with the Patron, then listening to our favourite music on the internet together. The spring rolls are great and the Patron certainly knows how to mix a mean cocktail - much better than many a fancy hotel bar. There are some characterful Swedish whiskies behind the bar and some fascinating customers to chat to about the forest and the diving. This is a key place to go on Koh Chang.

Awesome food (they have a Thai cooking school as well) and great atmosphere.

During my stay on Koh Chang I ate there every evening and I enjoyed all of the dishes I tried!

“Superior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We dropped in at this little restaurant on Bai Lan and were pleasantly surprised. There happened to be an influx of people at the time we came in and the owner did his best to get everything out. The pad thai was delicious as well as thai iced tea. The owner was incredibly friendly and gave the atmosphere and wonderful feel.

“Delicious food in relaxed style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

We had golden bags, thai green curry and a few Singhas. Genuine spicy taste. Quality produce and proper portions. This place is a cookery school and it really tells.
