A small cafe run by a local malay family. Located just next to Aloft Hotel and opposite Holiday Villa Langkawi. Went there for a breakfast, and thier full English breafast was highly recommanded. Value for money for 25MYR you can get a huge plate of...full english breakfast a glass of orange juice and a mug of coffee. Its worth to stop by for a breakfast (they do serve lunch and dinner as well)More

This restaurant was next to our hotel and we didn’t think much of it but locals kept telling us to it there. I really fancied some fried rice one night so we thought why not give it a go. And all I can say is...give it a go you will not be disappointed!! We had an egg fried rice each, which we didn’t need portions were huge! And some Thai sweet chilli chicken which they said was spicy but it was fine and some beef rendang which did have a kick to it and was sort and delicious. We also had a veg curry. We ordered so much food but it was so cheap but wanted to try all the food we had come to love on our trip. And it was amazing and for the cost we couldn’t believe how good it was! Considering locals were saying it wasn’t that busy due to COVID starting to ramp up this place was packed and we luckily got the last table. It was packed but the staff were great! Highly recommend!More

Really delicious great value food in a simple rustic setting. Do not put the look of the restaurant put you off! We ate here twice as the food was fresh and very tasty and very cheap! It does get very busy and you may have...to queue to get a table but we were lucky and went earlyish and didn't have to wait too long. The service is quite fast but to be honest that was fine if you are just looking for a quick dinner of tasty food! Loved it and would recommend it!More

Aside from the lively atmosphere, the food here is very average and the most ordinary we had on our trip. Not sure why everyone else raves about the place but it was reasonable.

My wife & I spent three weeks at Tengah in February 2020. We ate breakfast there everyday and dinner a few times as well. Do not be put off by the "rustic" look of the restaurant the food is excellent and the place is kept...very clean, staff are very friendly. You may need to reserve a table for dinner to avoid disappointment.More

We had dinner here on our last night in Malaysia. The food and ambiance were exceptional and we wish that we had found it earlier. It is so popular you may have to wait or book a table .

Cactus restaurant is a Langkawi classic. Great food at a great price never grows old, and Cactus delivers on both. We've been multiple times and will continue. I've seen reviews that say it's slow, but it's only because it's always full that make it seem...that way; the atmosphere makes a wait well worth it, have a beer or two, listen to the music and look around the walls and ceiling at the memorabilia, Tshirts, flags, photos and wishes from around the world and you'll understand why it's the most popular place on the island. Lip and Liew run a top drawer favorite.More
