Well the first thing I saw at this bar while I walked through the walking street at Koh Lipe,was a smiling dog sitting at the bar chair.
The dog,Maa (which actually means 'a horse' but may be confused with the 'maa' (thai),which also means 'the dog',depends on the tone :-D ) is apparently sitting there every night while their owners/bar owners,Mang and Walter service their guests.It sure is a great tourist attraction!
Then I saw they had this special menu,backpackers menu,100 Baht 2 dishes menu which they change every day.
The day I was there they had green curry with chicken and rice and a rib and potato soup.Yummy!
You feel like you eat a local meal and not like you usual get a meal at a restaurant in Thailand as a foreigner.
The also had red sangria,cool white wine (they fill the glass to the top) and tasty shakes (try the berry shake or the pineapple shake).
The owners are very cool,friendly and always smiling and helpful.
You can enjoy your meal or drink in the small and creative bar (there are many funny and interesting things to watch at the wall or in the ceiling) or upstairs where it is more private and quite.

Bonus:
The bar is meant to be a gallery bar and shop so check all the great and funny paintings (also of the dog,Maa),the clothes,accesories and postcards that they also sell at Rainforest Gallery Bar.You might find a good souvenir here!

We first came to Rainforest to have a couple of deco-beers, as it was just across the street from Ko Lipe Diving. Cold beers accompanied with small free tapas.
During our stay, we had their 100 bath 2 dishes menu twice. Both times they were very tasty. Really good value.
A lovely place, with a nice atmosphere.
