“Best restaurant in Kantiang Bay”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I am currently writing this review after having just finished my dinner at Alama restaurant; it is that good! Great atmosphere, great food, great staff & real value for money. And also must be the only restaurant or one of the few in Thailand where you do actually get the appetizers you order first before main meal :)

“Exelent food!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

The food was very good, we had been eating at the Pimalis resturants but they are not so good as this one. And it was a very cool and different place:)
highly recommend

“Great food, great value, great space”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Alama is a little tree house of a restaurant serving great Thai food. The owner (we think) was super cool and friendly, and the place has a great vibe. Music was excellent too. There weren't a ton of places near our hotel, so we really lucked out on this one.

I just looked at the most recent review and looks like she said almost exactly the same things!

“Great food, fantastic value”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

We came here for dinner and really enjoyed it. Very laid back and cozy. You feel like you're having dinner in a treehouse. The music was great (we are over the pop music being played everywhere else and loved the Led Zeppelin and Jimmy Hendrix here) . I had the duck curry based on one of the reviews and loved it. We will definitely be back.

“Great food and staff!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

This restaurant has two floors. On the ground floor you can't order alcohol because it's muslims friendly. On the contrary, you can refresh with a Singha upstairs.
The waiters all speak a good english and undestand the clients' needs very well.
I was there twice during my stay at Pimalai. I had both chicken and fish (very fresh) for more than reasonable prices: around 800 baths for a complete menu.
I suggest you try Alama spring rolls. They're excellent!
