“This has to be the place you visit for the perfect Thai meal”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Wow, wow, wow. We arrived in Koh Lanta and were really dissappointed with the service from some other places. Then we found this place purely by chance and boy did it change my opinion. The team in the kitchen have a real passion for both quality of food and service and practically left my wife and I speechless. My only dissapointment was that we found it so late into our trip that we had no time to try the cooking course it provides during the day.

“Textbook example of Thai hospitality”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Ever read about the fact that Thai people are friendly and hospitable? Well, here you can find a hostess that would welcome you any time of day or night.
Together with her cooking skills, this is a must-do in Koh Lanta. We were there when the business just opened and it tasted and felt amazing.

If you have a question, she will always be happy to help. Honestly, one the best experiences we've had visiting Thailand.

“Klong khong gem”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We actually stumbled upon this place looking for somewhere else. Lucky us! Easily the best food we had on koh lanta, I mean it's seriously tasty and looks great when it comes out. Kudos to the chefs. It's quite unassuming on the roadside on the klong khong 'high street' and serves traditional Thai food. Great warm atmosphere and friendly staff (as everywhere in thailand!). Totally recommended. I believe it also does cookery classes, though we didn't do this.
