Seriously, I ate here three times during my three-week stay, and I had exactly the same dish every time: the glass noodle salad with chicken. And boy, it was fire. Not only packed with chili, but also with a lot of flavour. Asked for "phed...phed" and that's exactly what I got, not that bland touristy kind of spicy. Big up.More

We discovered this place just by mistake a couple of days ago and have now been back 3 times in 2 days! Food is spot on and the service was great. Dan is very welcoming and helpful. Laid back atmosphere and very clean.

We visited the newly located ' Malinas ' for a girls night recently. It's now in a super, easy to find location near the Post Office and all freshly painted and tastefully decorated ready for customers ! Super duper thai food, lots of choice, great...prices, nice friendly staff and parking right outside. We will be back and I am very happy to recommend 'Malinas', glad it's open and they are very keen to please in these hard times.More

Visited Malina's for dinner whilst on a brief trip to Koh Lanta. The food was really good quality and very reasonably priced. The British manager was also very friendly and welcoming, engaging with guests. I'd certainly recommend this resto if you are in Koh Lanta.More

Malina's is so good we had to come back the next day with friends. The menu offers a wide selection of dishes. Every choice we had was superbly prepared, nicely spiced (flavored), and to the level of spiciness (heat) that we had requested. Absolutely delicious....The atmosphere is relaxed, very friendly, and results in a great experience. Watch for their new location in July or August. It'll be much easier to access, super convenient when arriving by tuktuk.More
