Loved the food. Was pricey (but what would you expect at the Datai?) but the food was excellent and the service was great. Lovely location, surrounded by treetops.

We dined here one night while staying at The Andaman and the staff completely revived our sense of service in Langkawi. Right from our arrival everyone was so friendly and welcoming. At least two members of the team engaged us in conversation and gave us tips for out next days activities. As it was raining when we left one gentleman even came out from the kitchen to especially show us the way back to the lobby through the corridor under the building so we didnt get wet.

The food was almost faultless, we had pad thai and a soup for entree, the stir fried lamb and beef massaman for mains and my partner finished with sticky rice & mango for dessert. The massaman curry was a stand-out and I happily finished it off even though I was incredibly full. We didn't enjoy the lamb as much as the other meals, but that could be just our personal taste as we dont eat it regularly.

I admit it was the most expensive meal we had in Langkawi (the bill came to 410MYR including 2 drinks), but I think the price was fair for resort dining. In comparison to The Andaman the meal sizes were significantly bigger for a similar price and the service was about a 100 times better. We would definitely return, and if you're looking at staying in the area we would suggest The Datai over The Andaman (review to follow shortly after our disappointing stay at the latter).

It is amongst the best thai food we've ever had. The head chef has been taught how to cook by his mum; this is traditional thai food at its best.
Try the wagyu beef massaman, and the soft shell crab.

We have just returned from Langkawi where we stayed for about a week. We stayed at the Andaman (as we always do) but we eat at the Datai - Thai Pavillion.

The food cannot be faulted. The chef does Michelin Star quality food. The ingredients that he uses are so fresh and full of flavour - it leaves you wanting to eat there all the time. That is exactly what we did!
We have had most of the things on the menu and some off the menu. As we had our dinner there all the time on one night chef prepared for us a special homemade chicken curry with noodles – it was incredible.
His recipes were passed to him from his mother (I believe) and that makes it even more interesting as you are eating old fashion Thai food with a modern twist to it. It can be spicy but the staff are wonderful to warn you and adapt the spiciness to your taste.
The service was great too and very attentive. They really care about your experience and they try to make your culinary experience the best you will ever have.
We were there with a child – the children’s menu is great and flexible.
We loved it so much and are looking forward to returning there sometime soon.
