We visited this place based on Tripadvisor reviews and found the location to be excellent. It is placed in the midst of paddy fields so you get a countryside ambience. It is very airy and breeze. Jimmy, the owner cum chef is a great guy to talk with. He is very friendly.....Food was good as you can get the taste of home cooked food..He prepared potato Sambhal (recommended by Jimmy) for us which was amazing....The portions are reasonable but it is not cheap...Probably you pay for the settings....Our family enjoyed the place, ambiance and food, however, as a neutral reviewer, I found the place to be expensive equivalent to a 3-4 star hotel...Visit for lunch or early dinner when there is day light

We went to Pai's the Padi for dinner last night & thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a little tricky to find but we had an idea of where to go so found it relatively quickly. Jimmy made the food mild for us & we all enjoyed it. The kids loved the spaghetti bolognaise he made. The setting in the rice fields was stunning. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Highly recommend going there for a meal.

Today we went to Pai's the Padi for a cooking lesson and it was nothing short of sensational. Jimmy was very friendly and you could see he loved what he was doing. His passion for cooking made the lesson so enjoyable. My husband and I learnt many new cooking skills which we look forward to using once we return home. We cooked dishes Jimmy taught us and then got to enjoy the delicious meals over looking the beautiful rice patties. This place and its owners are delightful! Do yourself a favour and go out there for a meal.....better yet - go for a class - it's amazing!!!

We had a bit of a challenge to find Pia's in the Paddy, since our hotel bell boy gave the taxi driver directions into Pentai Cenang - when in fact Jimmy has moved the restaurant from it's previous location. After a phone call from our taxi driver to the restaurant, we were back-tracking our 20 minute journey, and arrived at the Restaurant (located 7 minutes in a different direction from where we originally started). Sophia & Jimmy (and their young daughter - who speaks fantastic English) met us with a warm greeting. We were the only clients at the restaurant, but we did opt for a early dinner (just before 6pm).
The scenery over the padi fields with the water buffalow and cows grazing was fantastic. The sunset was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our sundowner drinks, while discussing the menu with Jimmy. We decided to let Jimmy surprise us, and I must admit - that was the best meal I've had in Malaysia! The Mango desert was brilliant!
Jimmy runs a really professional outfit, and I wish him and his family all the best and know that the new restaurant will be a huge success.
After dinner, Sophia (JImmy's wife) offered to drive us back to our hotel - thanks so much Pia x That's going the extra mile!
Pia's in the Paddy should be cemented in on everyone's itinerary when visiting Langkawi.

Not the easiest restaurant to find but worth the trouble. Jimmy and his lovely family have relocated to new premises.
We arrived mid afternoon and Jimmy cooked us an excellent meal based on local produce. top service provided by his
family. Jimmy's wife even drove us back to our hotel.
