Went here as it was near our hotel and seemed to have good reviews. We both had noodle dishes and found the noodles to be slimy and congealed, as if they had been cooked hours earlier or come from a pre-cooked packet. The food was also completely tasteless, which is pretty hard to achieve with Thai food! The staff didn't... More

The food is not bad but not real Thai. It is on the beach and good for a late night walk after dinner. I think that service and staff must definitely be improved. Having many tourists as customers doesn't mean you have to apply higher prices and forget that most probably we are all just looking forward to receiving good... More

Stumbled upon Roi Thoi as almost all restaurants seem to be closed in July in Ko Lanta. It was one of very few near our hotel that were opened. It was very quiet and the food was fine. The Rad Nha was a nice alternative to curry which I had been living off for the past few days and the... More

As this restaurant seemed to be popular with reviewers we thought we would try it as it was next to our hotel. Due to the fact they offer cooking classes we assumed the food would be good. In fairness, my wife's seafood curry was good but I asked for BBQ snapper fish and when I saw it looking pasty and... More

Apart from the nice atmosphere on the beach, there is nothing outstanding at this restaurant. Foods tasted bland and portions small given the prices. They didn't even know how to cook delicious food. How could they have a cooking school then? Foods here are not authentic but meant for foreign tourists.

We came here twice in 1 week and we loved it! Such a great setting along the beach to watch the sun go down. They do an amazing "hot pan" I think its called?Which is basically a sizzling plate! Amazing! Their service is exexcellent as they even picked us up and dropped us back at our hotel! Would definitely recommend... More

A favourite of ours three years ago and just as good as ever today. Delicious food and friendly service. However, they do get busy at times and the service can get a little bit touch and go. That said, we've never had a bad experience ourselves and had many wonderful evenings here.

After reading other reviews, I had high hopes. Very average and disappointing. My husband and I had a pad sayu and a whole fish. Really meh and not on par with expectations. Sorry, fellow Trip Advisors, you let us down.

We decided to try Roi Thai purely because it's also a cooking school. The fact is also seems popular seemed to also indicate they're doing something right. We had massuman curry and seafood Penang curry, both were delicious. Service is a little hit and miss, probably because it's so popular - sometimes it was hard to attract a servers' attention,...
