Even though we were staying nearby, we chose to eat here most nights and whilst they served Italian food our preference is always local and the chef, whom I assume was Thai, cooked amazing food, the Chicken and Cashews was the best I have ever eaten. Even though we were a captive audience the price was very reasonable. And if you were fortunate enough to be Italian you would have had the owner come over and talk to you but if you were Brits like us you would have been ignored! Hey Ho we only came for the food which was brilliant.

Very nice restaurant with good food. You can tell the owner takes pride and care for how he caters to the food, ambience and more. The italian food looked delicious but we stuck with Thai as we wanted to enjoy as much thai food as possible on our trip. Would just recommend that the staff be more friendly and engaging. Overall, a nice restaurant which we recommend.

Overall this is some of the best food we have had in our 4 trips to Thailand. We stayed 4 nights and ate most of our meals here. We ventured out twice to other places (once to the Italiano and once to Kradan Resort) and both were a huge disappointment.byou can order anything off the menu and it's bound to be delicious. Yes the prices are a bit on the high side but they have to source ingredients from the mainland. You are paying island tax essentially... Just get used to it. The food is amazing, it's worth it. Now the service can be a bit slow. We noticed the staff seem to work long hours and the place can get quite busy so I suggest just relaxing and waiting it out. The pizzas are absolutely phenomenal. I highly suggest a little olive oil and balsamic to dip your pizza crusts in. The crust was really too knotch. Penang and green curry were delicious. The vegetables on the sweet and sour pork were so crisp and fresh. My husband also had a Thai dish that was a soy sauce and basil base but I can remember the name off hand. It was very tasty. The pad Thai was decent. Nothing to write home about but certainly good. The American breakfast was also very filling. My husband and I found it was big enough for us to split every morning. Do yourself a favor skip the other restaurants on the island and just eat here. You won't regret it.

Food is good and a lot of it is homemade which is nice. It’s such a shame the staff aren’t more friendly or engaging as that would really top off the view and the effort they put into the food. Also please be aware that this restaurant is part of a child free hotel - this wasn’t clear to us so may not be to others - we came here for breakfast with our (admittedly noisy!) kids and were told that my 3 year old “needed to learn” 🤦🏻‍♀️ and they don’t normally allow kids for breakfast.

Our recent visit to Kalume Restaurant left much to be desired. From the moment we stepped in, it was evident that the staff lacked any semblance of service mind; their attitude bordered on arrogance. Taking orders and serving seemed like an arduous task for them, and their disinterest in attending to us was palpable. As for the food, while the pizza earned a respectable 8 out of 10, the carbonara was a far cry from authentic. It was bland and congealed, a disappointing rendition of a classic dish. Other pasta dishes also fell short, lacking flavor and depth. When we voiced our concerns to the staff, they displayed a blatant disregard for our feedback. Despite being the only Italian option on the island, Kalume Restaurant simply isn't worth the effort. Save yourself the disappointment and stick to the flavorful local Thai options instead.

We returned to this restaurant after three years. We were staying at the resort for 11 nights and had dinner at their restaurant all the time. Impossible to give up such a high quality. A truly wide menu, in which various types of homemade pasta and ravioli and exquisite pizzas play a leading role. Usually I never eat Italian abroad, but here you really eat like at home. Everything is fresh, made with the highest quality ingredients, handmade. In addition to the food, the atmosphere created by the owners certainly makes this the best restaurant on the island.

Ko Kradan should be on everyone’s list in visiting Thailand. Kalume is so special, that it’s almost hard for me to share it. This gorgeous Resort is on the best beach in Ko Kraden. Picture white, powdery soft sand surrounded my beautiful turquoise water, that is Ko Kradan. Definitely my favorite Island in Thailand. Kalume is a beautiful collection of wood bungalows, most overlooking the gorgeous beach. Each one, impeccably designed with such detail, down to the beautiful tiles in the bathroom. The concept of Eco impact, no water bottles, is a trend that other resorts in Thailand should follow. The restaurant! The best on the island. I ate there every night. The food is incredible, all fresh I ingredients, the menu created by the owner herself. Believe me, you will not miss Thai food for a few days. Fresh made pasta, pizza! And the best tiramisu I’ve ever had. ( And Ive had a lot of tiramisu in my life! 3 nights weren’t enough here. The owners were kind, gracious, and treated myself and the guests like you were staying in their home. I miss it already. Hands down, my favorite place I’ve stayed in my trip to Thailand.

LOVED eating here. After eating Thai food for 9 days - we were ready for something other and ate here at recommendation of another family. It was DELICIOUS, we ate here 2 nights out of 5 on the island. The Creme Brulle is one of the best I've ever had. Yum.

On a very small Island in Thailand you will find restaurant Kalume who serves Homemade Italian food with your feets in the sand an the want Thailand air in your face. The food is with a very High quality and they serve some decent wine. There is only a few restaurants here and This one is defently the best. We are on a 4 weeks family journey, so once in a while it’s good to have something Else than Thai food which I love.

It is a jewel in paradise! We ate there every day, the food was unbeatable, all homemade, incredibly delicious. Stefano and his team are warm and welcoming. They made our days unforgettable. Thank you all, we will be back! Thank you so much, Antonella & Maurizio

Stefano is an expert at food but he has trimmed the menu removing several favorites. Almost all seafood related . Mali next door has lasagna bolognese. Not as good as Kalume's but Stefano says he cant get the ingredients. I dont buy the excuse. VERY few meat options. but the parma pizza is superb no doubt. Wish he would offer like Carpaccio or saltimbocca or other pastas with meat options.

Food is quite good, but not a five stars. The restaurant is cozy. Unnfortunately the service was cold, no smiles, especially the owner man was very arrogant. Overpriced (We are in Thailand). Our first but last visit in this restaurant!

Without Kalume our 6 night stay on Koh Kradan would of been a big bust. Our hotel on Koh Kradan had a restaurant...but...we ate at Kalume every day. The quality of their food was way above expectations for such a remote location...on par with good restaurants in Italy.

We popped in here for a drink early evening and the staff were helpful... But not many smiles going on... So we had our drink and moved on. Sadly when my husband paid out bill at the desk... The man possibly the owner didn't even look or thank him. We wouldn't go back.

We tried the restaurant of the Kalume resort and we had one of the best surprise ever. A real Italian restaurant with Italian ingredients and a excellent choice of taste and quantity. We tried the tortelloni and pasta all'arrabbiata and both were really perfect. We drank mango shake that we loved! The service was attentive and kind. Beautiful dinner!
