First of all the staff at the restaurant were truly great. The food we had were all delicious. The restaurant is located amongst the rainforest and you can hear the sound of crickets and frogs while dining which is a change from hearing the traffic instead.

This restaurant, which first belonged to the Andamman Hotel and is now owned by the Datai Hotel is located in the rain forest between the two hotels. Very attentive service, and excellent food. We tried the Indian dishes, which were all superb. They also have Malay dishes and a counter of fresh seafood. Our first order was Pakoras, we ordered two but realized that one plate of this starter would have been sufficient. Then we went on to Tandoori chicken, dahl, matter paneer and naan, all excellent.

Can only recommend this restaurant, even if it is quite far away for those who do not stay at one of the two hotels on Datai beach. Prices not cheap, but adequate for one of our best meals ever.

Its a pricey place but worth it! The food is delicious, the setting beautiful. This place is my favourite among all the restaurants I tried during my stay in Langkawi.

Meh. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't 'wow' either. I was led to believe this was 'the place' for Malaysian cuisine.

The decor is interesting. It's an outdoor open air hut style restaurant - between the Andaman and Datai resorts.

The food all tasted similar, which was disappointing. We were practically ignored mist of the evening. We served our own wine - I don't have a problem with this if the restaurant is busy, but there were only 5 tables occupied (our of 50!).

The Thai restaurant at Datai is better.

This restaurant was amazing! The ambiance, the service, and the food could not have been better. I highly recommend it. We had some of the most amazing curries, fish, veggies, naan, and wonderful wine. We came back again for a 2nd visit because we enjoyed it so much.
The waitstaff was so incredibly attentive, and they called a car for us to return to the Andaman as we paid our bill.
