Service: The place was reasonably crowded for a Tuesday night, but service was still good - ordered 3 dishes and were served within 15 minutes. Wait staff were attentive - our water (infused with pandan!) was frequently being topped up without being asked. Food (2 pax): First time around, for dinner, we ordered garlic kangkung (M), pandan chicken (M) and... More

We have patronised several Thai restaurants in Langkawi and this year added Dee Thai to the list, The day before, as is a habit, we drove direct from the airport to Wan Thai for our all time favourite, otak-otak and some other dishes like fried rice, mango salad, and fish. Of the four Thai restaurants in Kuah town we have... More

The place is often very busy, especially so during peak season, so please be prepared to call up and reserve your table. It is a fairly large place comfortable seating about 150 pax, operating for Lunch and Dinner with a break-split in between. The menu is of course Thai, with some generic Thai stuff such a Tom Yam, Som Tam... More

Stopped in for lunch and was very pleased with the menu, the food and the service. Each dish can be ordered small, medium or large so it's convenient for 2 people to have a meal and choose 3 or 4 dishes to share. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. I really enjoyed the mango salad(it's spicy!),... More

We had lunch at Wan Thai, the food was very good. We had a mango salad, seafood fried rice, cashew chicken and morning glory for vegetable. All the food had good flavor but the cashew chicken was very good. Not a cheap eat in Kuah but not bad for the quality of the food. I will eat here again!!

Called and reserved a table before 8 of us went there. Reached there before 7 pm, only a few tables were occupied. Few tables were reserved and did not sure which one was ours. Waited and waived for waiters but no one seem to care. Although at least 3 waiters and another one sitting at the cashiers saw us. After... More

I had come with very high hopes! I read amazing things about their otak-otak served in a coconut and their authentic Thai milk tea. As it happens, they were sold out of both. Instead, I tried their regular otak-otak which came in a beautiful, lotus shaped package. It was more tumeric-yellow than orange, and came with some seafood and (sadly)... More

This restaurant food is so authentic. The workers and cooks are from Thailand. The Tom Yam was great and the price is quite affordable. Better come early as the place is always full.
