If there was a 10 star rating I would give it. Best tiger prawns I've ever had. Husband thoroughly enjoyed the beef as well and he is from an Aussie farm. Well done Boat Restaurant. Your food is memorable! Thank you again!

Nothing special to look at but good food, good value and good people. Asia and western food with many local dishes.The venison hotplate and lamb are top class.

We were looking for a place to get some food and beer on our first day in Langkawi. The staff were fun and conversant given their limited English! We enjoyed the crab soup and tomyam for entrees. My son loved the chicken cashews and I had the fish with ginger and doing onions, both were in a lighter than usual... More

If you want good fresh cheap food then you have hit the jackpot. The owners have been there for years and make you feel welcome. Cold beer in cold glasses. Everything we tried over many days was fresh and tasty. The duck, crabs, fish, soups, stirfrys, prawns were all fantastic and cheap. Do yourself a favour and try everything.

We had the grilled prawns (very good, very fresh, but a little greasy) and pak choi (also good and fresh) with steamed rice. If you want a fairly basic, but good and reasonable place to grab a meal then you can't go far wrong with the Boat

We went to the restaurant in hope of finding a good seafood meal in Langkawi, after reading decent reviews on Tripadvisor. Imagine our utter horror and disappointment when the food was served and we tasted them. We ordered a bowl of seafood tomyum, sambal squid, green curry chicken, and fried prawns. The tomyum was tasteless and didn't taste like tomyum... More
