“Best place to eat in Lanta Old Town”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We visited this restaurant in 2012 for the first time and have just returned when we went back to Ko Lanta this year. We hoped the food would be just as good as the first time round and we were not disappointed. Their green curry is one of the best I've ever had and if you ask for your food `Thai spicy' you get it Thai spicy (so many other Thai restaurants are afraid to give tourists spicy even when you ask for it). Lots of choose from, we had a selection of dishes and they were all fantastic. We have always found the staff to be very welcoming and the kitchen staff are happy to give you a wave on the way in/out (you pass through alongside the big bustling kichen which is open plan). We were not staying in Lanta Old Town but we did go twice in our 2 week holiday - the second time we went to Ko Lanta just to eat lunch at Fresh. We can't wait to go back again.....!

“Good food but medium qualified staff and slightly overprized”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

We have been twice at the Fresh and both experiences have been similiar. The food is good and tasty but be aware of the dangerously spicy style!
The staff is partially very annoying by besieging you until you finally order your food. Standing next to you or walking around your table while you try to choose can be quiet bugging and is not much fun. Some have been nice other waiters have been a bit rude or unfriendly. All in all an OK result in our point of view.

“our favourite venue in lanta old town”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

WOW. We loved Fresh, when we entered the first time we expected the bill to be high but Fresh is cheaper or same price than other restaurants that serve equal or less value food without the magnificant view Fresh has We tried different dishes and all were excellent, try the fried rice southern style or squid in tempura! Menu is huge , large choice of thai and western, though we only had thai. Staff are lovely , so are the cooks and yes they do speak very little english but who cares and ... they are not pushy in any way . What a view! Spacious, very calm and relaxing. Fresh was so good that we returned without hesitation and will do if we go back to lanta old town
