Fantastic food on a tiny island. Beautiful locations, could easily spend a few hours there. The massaman curry was delicious, and as requested, really mild.

Very delicious food! We had various meals there. Especially the Curry’s and salads were delicious like hell. Tell them you want original spicy :) For breakfast the muesli was great. And the German dishes felt like being home :) we can totally recommend going there!

At Mama Leuah you will find a delicious selection of asian and western food. Lutz and the rest of his stuff are very kind and friendly. We stayed there for 4 days and enjoyed there every meal on Don Det. Highly recommended!

Stopped here when we were cycling the island. Had the massaman curry which was pretty big in size. Beautiful view of the river and a very laidback feeling. Perfect for a chill afternoon.
