My partner just reviewed this and said that you need to look for a pic of a fat Buddha. You don't. It's a pic of a fat monkey with 'fat monkey' written underneath. We both had burgers which were exceptional. Drinks were chilled, food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. Jazz/reggae music, attentive staff and a great evening! Make... More

Fat Monkey, almost missed the sign! Picture of fat Buddha on the right hand side coming from Saldan. Thoughtful lighting, jazz music, waterfalls and the friendliest cat. Lovely food and service was great- we both had western food as missing home a bit after a month! Standard pricing for koh Lanta. Free wifi and deals on cocktails through the evening... More

It was a really nice time. The atmosphere is so nice, the music couldn't be better. And the food is amazing. We tried past, burger appetizer and the main course... Strongly recommend the duck and the rigatoni Augusta. And cannot forget the staff, they were nice too!

Great chilled atmosphere, I've been coming to Lanta for the last 4 years, sitting at the bar most nights doing a bit of work. Made my way through the menu and my favourite dish is the Chicken Cashew Nut Pizza, try it if you like something different. Also tried the Aussie burger. Staff are friendly, music is a bit of...

Following recommendations from other reviews on here, I decided to have a burger and I wasn't disappointed. It was great - one of the best burgers I have had. The cocktails were also nice and the service was good. It is fairly pricey but probably worth it for the quality of food. They do cater well to large groups as... More

Being a regular visitor to Lanta I go to Ling Uan frequently and have never been disappointed. Location, music, food, staff and ambiance all perfect. Best cocktails on the island. Thoroughly recommend.
