We were a bit disappointed after all the reviews.
We came for lunch so it may be different in the evenings but it was pretty much average all round- food was ok, price wasn't cheap nor expensive, service was the usual beach Thai type. It's on a road so you don't get the 'people watching' benefit you do on the beach.

Wasn't as good as the street food and not nearly as good atmosphere

Of all the places i have eaten in Thailand this has to be the best!

It was reccomended by one of the locals, which is usally a good place sign. It didn't look like much when we first saw it, just another road side eatery but we were blown away with the quality of the food. Portions were a decent size, prices were great as was the service.

We ate green curry, tom yam, a prawn special but best of all morning glory - i didn't think vegetables could be so unbelievably tasty. We didn't actually order the morning glory either, it just came complimentary of the chef. Subsequently, i ordered morning glory nearly every other restaurant i went, but sadly it never as tasty as it was here :(

This is a very friendly roadside restaurant in the middle of the Klong Nin beach road. We enjoyed from their menu many "green" meals among seafood. But already in the spring, when we visited this place for the first time we fell in love with morning glory. This type of family restaurants are always friendly.

We ate at Cook Kai almost every night during our stay on Lanta. So delicious. Generous portions. The fried noodles with soy sauce were some of the best we've had in thailand - not dried out at all and a great deal considering Lanta prices. I also tried a few of their thai salads, which were all delicious (cashew salad and steak salad both so good). Prices are more expensive than other places in Thailand, but a really good value for Lanta we thought. The family that runs it is awesome too. Highly recommended!
