Although it is a bit off the normal route and not listed in the free map brochures handed out at the airport, we knew about this place from our previous trip, a couple of years. It is located directly opposite Holiday Villa resort. I am happy to say that it is just as good as before. The only sad part... More

On our second-last night in Langkawi we enjoyed dinner and (cheap!) drinks here. The seafood was as fresh as you can get and cooked beautifully, the home-made claypot tofu was incredibly more-ish, and the char koay teow rivalled the most famous hawker stalls in Penang. In fact, we so enjoyed our meal we had to come back on the last... More

The small restaurant is located opposite Holiday Villa in Cenang. This is the second seafood restaurant we have been during our Langkawi trip. The food is fresh with cheaper price than those along the main street. Tasty and unique home-cook-alike food. We tried their homemade beancurd, morning glory, clay port seafood, steam prawn and crab for 4. Love it all... More

We have been several times now to Langkawi and each time we can't wait to go back and eat at this place! The Lady running this restaurant is very nice, kind & funny. She looked after our little one each time we came and even had a bday present and icecream cake for him! Best Tom Yum Soup!!

Read a few average good review from Trip Advisor, so we decided to give it a try. If you want a quick dinner, this is not the place. But I had a special experience where I wrote our food order ourselves, check out the price of crab and fish from the cashier. Everything by yourselves if you want to have... More

Boat is one of those cheap, tasty local restaurants that are worth finding in Langkawi. The curries were very tasty and we enjoyed the service. And at less than 25myr/person (including beer) it was great value.

We had food here 4 times and loved it every time. Their cool melonjuice is a very good non-alcoholic alternative in the heat.

On the face of it, you might decide to miss this place and walk down the road to some more fancy looking establishments. Mistake. They have very good food and I would be happu to go back dine here again.
