Located in an area with plenty of resorts, this was one of the few places serving authentic and tasty Malaysian and some Thai food that was also very reasonable priced. So much better than all the many generic restaurants nearby with the bland meat X/sauce Y offerings.

We only came here after being repeatedly disappointed by all the generic restaurants in the area.

The lobster tail was a stand out.

Would definitely come back.

Had dinner there three times! Cheap restaurant and friendly service. You may have to wait the food for a while. Since we didn't have wifi in our hotel it was nice to surf there while waiting. We really enjoyed their curries and satay-sticks! They don't serve alcohol but will bring you a glass if you have your own beers. I truly recommend this place!

First off I think that some people here may be reviewing a different restaurant as the Maya I visited last night was not at the location as shown on the map. It did not serve alcohol as mentioned elsewhere in the reviews but they were happy for you to visit the Happy Market over the road for any you may want.
The meal I had here was tasty, well prepared and very good value. It has a mix of Thai and Malaysia dishes as well as some more European items which looked OK from the other diners tables.
I shall be returning!

Service was late. Had to wait almost an hour. Mozzies everywhere. Corny photos and phony statements on the walls which does not represent the quality of the service. And they forgot our rice order!

Our eating out philosophy in Langkawi has been just head out and try a few different restaurants,we do take note of the reviews but often they can count for nothing as everyone's interpretation of a good dining experience is varied.
We headed towards this quieter end of Pentai Tengah one evening and have returned two times since to this charming 'family style feel' run place and have eaten some really nice Thai and Malay cuisine,which gave us the impression that the person in the kitchen had a fair idea what he or she knew what they were doing,it's also cheap unlike some of the more so called recognised eating establishments on the glitzy end of the area.
So,conclusion if your on a bit more of a budget but want to eat some great food, then give this place a go I really liked it.
