We are frequent travellers to Langkawi and this time around my husband's niece and her husband came along with us. At the airport, as usual, we were handed maps and places of interest to see and in the midst of all these, was a photostat copy of reviews in Tripadvisor on Pia's The Padi, which we haven't been before. I called and made a reservation for four pax for dinner and we drove there. The signage was quite small and off the main road in Ulu Melaka. My heart sank as we arrived there, it wasn't well maintained and weeds were overgrown in the planter boxes. Jimmy, the owner and chef came to inform us that there was no menu as he has a package that costs RM75, which includes free flow of drinks from his drink menu. We are Malaysians, basically what he serves is Indian curries, to us his curries are nothing to shout about! We have curries that are so much tastier than what he serves and we aren't charged the exorbitant price that he charges and we definitely won't be forced to take a package! We can deduced that he cooks these few items only and the guests are 'advised' to take the package! The only thing I can give credit to this place is the sunset view and the free flow of drinks! We weren't impressed, in fact we felt short changed and we definitely won't be back to this restaurant. Please note that there is a 10% service charge as well and he takes cash only.
