We ate here 3 times during our stay in Langkawi, each visit the food was brilliant! Twice as a couple and once with a large group.The staff are very friendly and can explain everything on the menu! They are also open for breakfast! Definitely would go back! Great place!

A good local restaurant, food and service was good and the fit out is quirky. Prices are very reasonable and quantities are good and you get a good mix of nationalities and ages.

Great place for backpackers. It's quite a way from the main strip of Pentai Cenang, but if you're towards the south end around Zakrys hostel it's definitely worth a visit. Really great food and really cheap prices.

Hosts were nice, but the food wasn't good at all. The cactus-style prawns were tiny and the sauce smelt a bit like sewage. The green curry was the worst we've ever tasted - meat was terrible and the sauce was flavorless. The BBQ fish was average at best.. Fresh but no flavor. Would recommend people go to the "Boat restaurant"... More

Had the Nasi Lemak with ayam rendang with added onion omelette, which comes with a free coffee/tea. It would set u back by RM12. But it was simply delicious.... More
