We had a good meal at Kung's and the service was the best we had received in Thailand. Kung's is along the strip of restaurants that you find in Koh Lanta town. It competes with the ones on the other side which are all facing the water, we had been to a couple of those too but preferred our experience at Kung's. I think it was the owner who served us, possibly Mr Kung! Our food was quickly presented to us and was delicious. After the meal we were given a complementary plate of watermelon and pineapple which was a nice touch and very welcome. I would definitely go back if I went back to Koh Lanta.

Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a dinner here.

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance as it doesn't look special - we needed a wi-fi and a shelter from the rain so we got in for a quick fruit shake before going further. But Thor, the owner, was so welcoming (and mango shake so delicious) that we stayed for lunch as well. After that we were hooked.
Even though all the waitresses are nice, Thor is undoubtedly the star of this place - a communicative, polite man with a big heart, speaking excellent English and answering any question you might have, regarding food, Thai culture, Koh Lanta or anything else. The service he offers is impeccable. All the food we tried there was very, very tasty (hot pan and massaman and panang curries are to die for) and they even prepared for us the fish that my husband caught - that was the most delicious fish I have ever tasted.
We always got complimentary drinks or fresh fruit and we felt very welcomed there.

His service and food are the reason we drove here every other day for almost half an hour in order to eat at this restaurant.

A little tip: if you want to try the traditional Thai sweet sticky rice with mango, check with Thor when is it available - his mother makes it for all the neighbours :)

Ate dinner here and really enjoyed the Thai food. It was very delicious and exactly what you expect from a wonderful Thai meal full of flavour and nice and spicy. Friendly staff as well.
