Positives!: Beautiful scenery of the beach. Beautoful presentation. Beautoful waiter who explained in detail the flavours of the food. Beautiful smoothie and we created our own much to their intrigue. Amazing prices. Amazing flavours and different experience then any restaurant. The servings are big. Negatives!: one side plate (veggies) was very small.

We loved dining at Kwan;s Cookery. One of the best restaurants we went to on Ko Lanta. The Khao Soi was delicious and the restaurant is right on the beach.

Great location on the beach. We had a table on the beach. The food was very good and the whole place had a good feel to it. I have one of the chiefs specials, could have been a bit spicier. Really enjoyed it

Breakfast or dinner on the beach wasn't a bad choice at kwan's cookery. Romantic and relaxing environment. Nice service and friendly staff!! Of course the food taste good and I kind love it (I only order thai food which I think this is a must when you are in thailand). The price slightly up (seriously just a little bit little... More

We found this place after realizing the restaurant we were initially planning on going to was closed for the day and I'm so glad. First of all, you can't beat the view...ocean front view of Khong Klong beach with chill island vibes, can't get any better than that...but most importantly the food was great! I ordered the red curry and... More

I was happy to get my favourite soup here, the Chiang Mai soup, which usually can be quite hard to find in the south of Thailand. And the soup tasted really good!

It was unfortunate that the main cook of this restaurant was sick when we visited the place; we wanted to try their specialty dishes but they were not available...Quality cooking of traditional Thai dishes but what was good was the portions-big portions almost similar to Western style servings.

After first getting lost to find this place we eventually stumbled upon it. The staff were very friendly and helpful giving us recommendations. We had two curry dishes with rice, one of them being a speciality dish. Both were very good, maybe a little more expensive than other places however as the food was so good and the view amazing...

Visited her after some mixed food on koh lanta which I didn't think was particularly authentic in parts Kwan's hit the spot perfectly. The restaurant faces the sea with good views and is part of a complacent with a pool,bar and accommodation thus giving a different feel to the normal beachfront eateries up and down the coast. Staff were attentive... More

Kwan's offers very tasty food at very reasonable price. You can select the spiciness of your serving from three levels. Absolutely one of the best choices at rocking Khlong Khong beach!
