Reviewed February 4, 2013

The food and the staff were just perfect. And It is a wonderful experience to eat fresh fish the feet in the sand looking and listening to the ocean's sound.

“Not that great”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We tried thai cat after reading reviews. Nothing flash. We were sat just above beach cooking area and saw first hand what went on. Both chefs smoking whilst cooking. They were throwing the jacket potatoes onto the serving area. Our order was taken by a disinterested member of staff who wasnt taking a blind bit of notice of what we ordered thats probably why we got onion rings instead of calamari. Curry and rice ok, run of the mill. Its to big and impersonal, far better choices on Long Beach.

“Best place in longbeach.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Great food. The best I had in my two weeks inThailand! They are dedicated to serving great quality food and fast! Don't stay next to the passage because it can get stressful with the employees running up and forth with the trays. We went there almost every night! Definitely a must go in Longbeach.

“A real treat to dine here”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Our table of seven thoroughly enjoyed the evening meal at Thai Cat. The level of service and quality of food was far batter than anything else we experienced on Lanta Island.
Thai Cat is a very large restaurant located right on Long Beach. Even though it's a big place, service is very fast due to the number of staff who are efficient and run around all night - really, they actually run!
There is a varied menu and a fresh seafood counter, and all our dishes were spot on. This was some of the best Thai food and seafood we've had on our holiday. To top it off, the prices are very reasonable.
If we visit Lanta again, we'll be sure to go back.

“Favorite place on the beach”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We spent a week at the Lanta Resort over New Years. The Thai Cat was our favorite place for breakfast, lunch and supper. Great food (fresh grilled fish of your choice), great drinks, and great folks.
