“Great food. Great setting. Top Notch.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a great meal. Even low season, this place was packed (and with plenty of locals too, always a good sign). A great panang curry (have it spicy) & lots of good side dishes. Good stuff.

“Great Thai Seafood at Thai Prices”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Lanta Seafood is the queen of the seafood restaurants in Baan Saladan. Even the locals choose this restaurant over others.

It's easy to see why. Like many other restaurants in the area, it sits on a pier overlooking the straits between Lanta Noi and Lanta Yai, but the difference is the quality of the food and the prices.

Regardless of the season, the prices at Lanta Seafood are "Thai Prices". That means that tourists aren't gouged, they get good value, and the service is better than average for a Thai seafood restaurant.

With fresh fish, shellfish and traditional Thai dishes, this restaurant is a great Thai experience.

For Westerners (farang) they have added a wine cellar with reasonably priced wines to accompany your meal. Keep in mind that wine isn't a "Thai thing" and while the prices are reasonable in Thailand, they might seem a bit pricey when compared to home. That's due to import taxes, not the restaurant.

In the last five years, we have visited this restaurant no less than 12 times and we are always happy with the consistent quality of the food. My wife is Thai and she considers it one of her favorites. So I know it's authentic.

Whether you are a couple, a family or have a large party, Lanta Seafood is an excellent choice.

“good value”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The food is cooked to a good standard, the lobster is excellent and extremely good value, fresh and they are honest, about when it was caught also you can ask how you would like it cooked. Lots of locals eat there so its a good sign that the food is honest Thai food. There is nothing flash about this place, just a good classic sea food diner. An enjoyable feast. The placement is in the centre of town near Saladan pier. I understand the aroma and colour of a Thai red curry and felt the curry just lacked a little passion in the concocting of it, although saying that I did enjoy it. The price is excellent.

Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Situated in the middle of the town this restaurant has a great Ko Lanta atmosphere. The food we ordered came quickly and we all ejoyed it. Because we where there in the low season the was no fresh seafood available.
