We visited this place last night and had a great time. The owner/chef Jimmy had already thought of recommendations for us based on our previous conversation from we met him at our hotel. I'm vegetarian and went along with the vegetable butter masala whilst my husband ate the beef rendang. Jimmy also whipped up some mint raita with a twist... More

We were told about this restaurant but didn't quite expect such a charming place. Jimmy's curries are some of the tastiest we've eaten and all made with the freshest ingredients. His family served the dishes and were very friendly and attentive. The sunsets are beautiful with views towards the mountains.

We had a great meal here- fantastic food and excellent service in a lovely setting. My only criticism would be that it is more expensive than most other Lankawi restaurants but still cheap by uk standard and it is good.

We just had an amazing dinner at Pia's. We had the set menu and chose the beef rendang and butter chicken. It also came with the cauliflower potato dish, drinks, and dessert. Everything was very tasty! Will definitely come back again.

We had an amazing beef redang! The place is comfortable and relaxing. We stopped here on our way to Tanjung Beach and it was a very nice break with views to the paddy fields :)

We visited Pia's last week on the strength of a fabulous meal five years ago at Jimmy's, when he was located at Pantai Cenang. It was a shame that this time the restaurant was almost empty, but Jimmy was great. Despite his wife not being there and his four year old daughter being unwell, he made the time to chat... More

We were told we would not be disappointed with the food here and the info was absolutely correct. After a busy day jungle trekking, we had a healthy appetite, not for long. Jalfrezi appeared in no time and spiciness prepared to your own taste. Tucked out of the way but well worth the effort to find this gem. Service also... More

I returned to Pia's this year and was disappointed. The quality of the food is still good but the prices are 20-30% higher. Not only that but the beautiful rice paddy view has been ruined by a mesh fence which surrounds the restaurant and by a house that has been built right in the middle of the view. Pity. If... More

Went here by virtue of other positive feedback. There were only two people there so that should have been a warning. Didn't realise it was Malay, so no chance to get a beer or glass of wine with the meal. Prices are much more than average, I'm not sure what for. A normal beef rendang and an awful potato and...

Three weeks in Langkawi, lots of different restaurants and meals and Pia's the Padi stands out from them all. The food here is beautifully prepared and served and is completely delicious. The beef rendang and the butter chicken are to die for! The restaurant is out of the way but well worth the effort. It is very atmospheric, surrounded by... More
