Well i have say to read Krua Kritsana is No.75 from 239 was most surprising.

Admittedly it was not on the list of potentials but by chance we stopped here and were pleasantly surprised.

There are 2 water bottles on each table and your immediately served with a glass full of ice. Naturally you open the bottle to suit the ice. 10bht be careful. Only free ice!!

Food was cooked in an open environment so you can see what's happening.

Food was good. We only ordered Thai food. Each dish was tasty and had a great kick and were each lovely.

One large Chang beer is ONLY 100bht. Cheapest ive seen.

At last we have found a place that goes against the majority in our opinion.

We discovered this restaurant yesterday evening and we can tell you that tonight we will be there again !
They prepare the best chicken panang I ever ate !
Service is smily and professional.
From the restaurant room you have a direct view on the kitchen, which could be a disadvantage in some other places ! But here it is the living proof of its professionalism.
Prices are more than reasonable.
05 minutes walking from the lanta sand resort, for us, definitely the best !

Went there twice and on each occasion there were ups and downs. We visited in low season (June) so it was almost empty- quick and good service. The staff were friendly and helpful. I have mixed feelings about the food. Fresh green papaya salad is very good, well seasoned and the portions were very generous on both occasions- thumbs up here. Pad Thai was also very good- not too oily, full of flavor and again a big portion. Red curry with seafood was good with plenty of shrimps and squid- again a very generous portion. Bad ones we had were green curry with tofu- oily and pretty much tasteless- one of the worst green curries we had so far. Panang curry was equally bad. It literally was 6 tiger prawns and some greens drowned in oil mixed with red curry paste- I would not call this thing a curry. Would go back for papaya salad and Pad Thai. I guess curries are not their signature dishes. Prices are reasonable.

We visited this restaurant almost every day whilst staying at the nearby Layana Resort. Out if the Layana to the main road and turn left, then walk for 500m.
Always the busiest restaurant with brilliant food and frequented by Thais and tourists.
This place has a great easy vibe, lots of smiles and food quality to die for.
