Simple restaurant, charming and clean. The food is delicious served by a friendly staff. The menu is traditional Thai and one of the best on the island. High quality at a good price!

Lovely little restaurant hidden away with friendly staff and food cooked with love. We ordered garlic chilli chicken, pineapple chicken cashew nut stir fry and some tempura prawns and were really happy. Definitely recommend this place to eat whilst in Ko Lanta.
