If you're staying near or on long beach May's Kitchen is worth a visit. It's a little restaurant with bamboo tables and chairs out the front and the kitchen in the middle of the room with lovely welcoming staff at the door. We ordered a green and red curry, which both came with rice, the service was very quick and... More

Visited this restaurant several times during our stay on Long Beach Ko Lanta. Food cooked fresh when ordered and served hot. Kitchen on view to restaurant patrons. Serves excellent Thai and western foods. A BBQ available in the evenings serving chicken seafood and meats. Great friendly service and a nice bar.

Not that hard to find since it's so popular. I can only agree with all other positive that's been said. Great food, both bbq and Thai at very reasonable prices. Drinks are excellent as well. Highly recommended!! Staff very friendly and fun and they really seem to take pride in a great experience for the customer. Will come back soon... More

We visited Mays kitchen for the first time this year and went back on 3 occasions. It's a popular place to eat with both young and older people. The food is cooked in open view of everyone with all fresh ingredients. May herself is always there to greet you whilst tending to the BBQ. This has become our favourite place... More

Can't say enough about may's if it overlooked the ocean it could be my favourite place to eat on earth! They have western meals which seemed popular but forget that and head straight for the Thai section. I eat a lot of Thai food at home (Sydney, Australia) and let me tell you, this is where it's at! One stand... More

We ate here twice during our recent stay on Koh Lanta. It seems to get quite busy in the later evening, after about 8.30 pm but we got a table easily enough. My wife had the BBQ prawn meal which she was impressed with. I had a green curry which was very tasty but I didn't find particularly spicy despite... More
