It's a small restaurant located on the main street. The service and the food are amazing. We got some spring rolls and red curry (we got the Thai style/spicy not the western style) we loved it! The prices are reasonable and the staff is really...More

Visited Malinas with great expectations from reading all the reviews. Yes the banana 🍌 shake was good, the banana & cashew even better. However the Pad Thai was the most disappointing dish thus far on our trip. No flavour and soggy noodles, I shall leave...More

Was there on October with my wife. Had a great time! delicious food for a good price, but the best part were the hosts Daniel and Malina. Love from Israel.

We just had a lunch at Malinda’s Kitchen and all I can say it’s EXCELLENT. Food was delicious, portions huge, staff super friendly, cleanness 5*. Fully recommend to anyone visiting Ko Lanta Yai. I’ll be back for dinner tomorrow.

I had the best Tom Yum I’ve had in Thailand at this place. So good and so flavorful. Chock full of veggies and tofu, and it had noodles so it was super filling. The power went out on the island while we were dining here....More

I was in Ko Lanta for 5 days, and ended up eating at this restaurant 3 times. Their spring rolls and Panaeng Curry is delicious. The staff is very polite and friendly, and the owner always makes sure that his customers are happy. Highly recommend!

Hi Iga. Yes we are. Our hours are 11am to 10pm in low season. We do occasionally close if it is quiet and we need to go to the mainland for supplies etc but this happens only rarely (perhaps 1 day every 2 months). If... More
