Restaurant details
Reviewed January 25, 2014

We found Kantara in a restaurant brochure! Sounding fantastic we headed in for our last Thai Cuisine before heading home. We arrived and were seated for a few minutes before being escorted to the restaurant........ To our surprise there was No one there, and the chef was texting in the kitchen... Where's the bar man? where's the people? Suddenly there was doubt.

we ordered there samosas which we saw in brochure as recommended.... To our surprised their advertised favourite was not available.

we then ordered our curries........
they came in the wrong sauces .... The chicken dish had duck....or cat? and the duck had chicken? The green curry was red curry and the red curries were green? we were utterly confused. the dishes that were not meant to be spicy were spicy and those that were meant to be spicy weren't.

I suppose it was windy (there answer as to why it was quiet)
Or maby it was Opposite Day...


To say the least our experience at lantana was an adventure, our taste buds were tested...

but there is no greater way to leave then the owner ask in a shocked voice

The venue is quite nice, especially the tables by the water. The prices are not too bad considering the location.

Food and service were both great. We had the Thai dishes, which were well cooked.

Had a great night here with our party of 9. Extensive menu with something to offer all tastes. Was over drinking cocktails by now so was happy to have a few glasses of wine which were very reasonably priced. This is rare in Samui - wine is normally very $$$.
Service was friendly and prompt and the meals were great. they also offer a kids menu but our kids ate off the main menu.
Beautiful beach front location. Would definitely go again and recommend to others.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was great - we had a large group and shared red curry, green curry, chicken satay sticks, pad Thai, massaman curry, fish & vegetables and it was all great. The staff were really good and were very good with understanding a family member's food allergy and explaining which dishes were ok. The setting was lovely.

This was one of our favourite places to eat while we were in Chaweng. It has a good wine list, the service was amazing and the tables were set right on the beach. It was a lovely setting (although beach sellers do still come along in the dark of night but if you ignore them they soon wander off). My partner had the sweet and sour snapper and didn't stop talking about it for the rest of the holiday. The food was flavourful and it was one of the few menus that seemed to include Thai cuisine in the area. The food, sevice and setting was all of a high standard. You do have to walk through the hotel (Blue Lagoon) its attached to if you come from the road side but you can get it from the beach as well, obviously. We wished we'd found it earlier in our holiday so we could have revisited it!
