we had a wonderful seafood dinner at this simple, down to earth riverside restaurant . we ordered a chilli crab fied with spring onions. the crab roe tasted out of the world. we also ordered a clam dish fried with chilli sambal thai style and thai fried rice. Service was good and the waitress was attentive and friendly.
the next day we ventured to another seafood restaurant called seaside restaurant which was located along the same stretch but nearer to the jetty. Food was similarly wonderful but slightly cheaper than Salatan. We were fortunate to heed the advise of a tour and rental shop owner by the name of Ms Kim located along the jetty opposite this restaurant. we bought our bus tickets and rented a jeep very cheaply from her shop. this makes our stay in Lanta a wonderful experience.
