The food was good. The place in itself is not that bad either. But.....the owner is not the most welcoming host you’ll ever meet. A Swede who doesn’t seem to think that hospitality is also part of running a restaurant. We tried and went back...More

We came twice for breakfast. The coffee is incredibly good. The bacon is very delicious. They do thick fluffy banana pancakes too. I would come again and again.

The restaurant is open all day and offers meals from morning till later in the evening. They even have a pool table. The owner takes pride in the coffees they serve. Although it's all quite good, it is a bit more expensive than other restaurants...More

Food is mainly Thai despite some western dishes. Anyhow both of them are really good. The music that night was like Metallica... but soft. Best choice of fruit shake we found so far on the island

We experienced the best thai spicy food in Bailan Bay and probably all Koh Chang. Quality cocktails made by host Nick and excellent quality food made by his wife Sou. Nice atmosphere, interesting conversations. It was also great to hear Nick's experience in trailrunning and...More

Happy turtle is located in Bailan bay on Koh Chang. We offer you real Thai food (if you ask for spicy it will be..), we also have a nice mix of western food.In our bar we have nice fresh coffee, cocktail/drinks , ice cream, milkshakes, fruit shakes.We use no MSG in the cooking and everything is prepared from scratch when orderd,,, so with a buzy restaurant you might have to wait a bit for the food. we think it is well worth it
