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

“Good food ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We ate here twice and both times the food was good. Pineapple curry was delicious. You can also choose how spicy your dishes are.

Huge freezer full of San Francisco ice cream makes for a happy wife too!

They offer cooking classes too.

“great food and nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

we went to the "Happy Turtle" three times in a row and had just fantastic food and drinks every evening. Not only the different currys but also the different dishes made it a great dinner. Can only recommend it to everyone staying nearby.

“Great food ! Lovely people !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

We ate at happy turtle several times over the last few weeks in Koh Chang, the food is lovingly prepared with fresh ingredients. The best tom yum soup I have ever had and you should try the papaya salad. This family run bar & restaurant also has bungalows for rent and a Thai cookery school on site. Highly recommended !

“One of the best around Lonely Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

They are located after Lonely Beach in between LB and Bang Bao, close to the Mercury Hideway. The food here is a little bit pricey, but worth the price. The salads are not huge, but have plenty of chicken or excellent homemade fried shrimps. They give you an olive oil + balsamic vinegar dressing with Italian seasoning that I like. The burgers are delicious, the bred is warm and crispy, the fries are made on demand and fresh. The only thing I do not like are the Ice Cream (American brand) which are visibly using a lot of chemical to get that pink/orange and candy taste, these will not fit any European taste! But for the most part, the restaurant is well designed and feels warm, the owners are careful about their customers and every time I go there it is a great culinary and relaxing experience. If you are around, do not hesitate, you cannot be disappointed!
