“Great taste and the best Thai food I have ever eaten.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Visited the restaurant any times, the taste of the food and variety we ordered was memorable.
The restaurant is decent with good seating and always crowded.
The food is very reasonable and worth the money.
Have always enjoyed the experience in Wan Thai.
Highly recommended as there are not really many good food restaurants in Langkawi.

“Cheap, fresh, and right by the road”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had a craving for Thai food and this came recommended by the folks over at Temple Tree. And a good recommendation it was! The food was generally of good standard. We had green curry, fish, omelette, kangkong, and a really mouthwateringly good tomyam. Prices were pretty reasonable - I've always found it hard to find cheap food in Langkawi as they tend to charge "tourist prices" in most restaurants. Good food, good price, good location in the heart of the main town, Kuah (just search for Wan Thai Restaurant on Google Maps) - no wonder it was packed when we got there.

Just to clarify, this is more of a Malay-Thai style of cooking, which isn't exactly the same as what you'd find in Bangkok. But it is authentic as it is good.

The wait staff who seated us and took our orders were reasonably pleasant, though one helper who brought us the dishes was so sour in his face and attitude, he could have curdled our curry with just one look. So maybe he had a bad day, but I don't appreciate such attitude, and it marred an otherwise wonderful experience for me.

All in all, yes, I definitely would recommend this place to anyone. And given the chance, I'd be happy to go along!

“Affordable rustic style food”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Made the first stop on the island to this place for lunch. Good food, affordable prices are the reasons this place is patronised by tourists and locals. Once tasted, will return for more.

The food is really good. Very good service and friendly staff. Value for money. Would advise to make reservation as the place is always crowded. Kitchen closes at 10pm.
