The waitress was pushy, took 2 hours+ for a meal that doesn't even taste good and even made a scene in the kitchen when we complained about the food tasting weird, not to mention how overpriced it is. Definitely won't go ever again.

I can safely say any trip to Langkawi will not be complete without dining at this wonderful place. Tbh we actually left this out on our itinerary as we were covering Kuah, Cenang and Pantai Kok for a major part of our trip. On the final day we were driving towards Makam masuri and then noticed this en route and... More

This is a fabulous restaurant which you must, must visit if you are in Langkawi. We arrived for lunch and what a great setting it was among the padi fields. Our arrival was greeted by the incredibly warm and friendly staff who talked us through all the options on the menu. It all sounded delicious and was suitable for everyone,... More

My wife and I booked a cooking class with Jimmy because we saw a 4.5/5 rating on Tripadvisor. I STRONGLY ADVISE anyone to first read the “poor” and “terrible” reviews before going there. 1st: The kitchen is a GERM paradise. It is probably the filthiest kitchen I have ever entered (Trust me, I have travelled a lot and done cooking... More

I have meant to post a review about this beautiful restaurant over a year ago and as I will be returning to Langkawi next week I realised I should have given credit to the small family business a lot sooner... I asked a shop assistant in Cendang where was the best restaurant in Cendang and she suggested Pia's and informed... More

We planned an outdoor activity for our team building but it rained :-( Jimmy from Pia's The Padi rescued us arranging the cooking lesson with a very short notice. Very organized, friendly, and the food was awesome, the entire team loved the experience!! Thanks to Jimmy & Pia!!

I was there for a dinner and I truly loved the place! The food is amazingly delicious especially the Chicken Butter Masala and Beef Rendang. The owner cum chef, Jimmy and Pia is equally friendly and makes me feels so at home! Finally the view is perfect for dinner! Go around sunset time and you will have a nice view... More

It took some arm twisting to get my husband to agree to check out this place. And I'm happy to say that, after the first mouth full of that delicious seafood butter masala, hubby dear was forever grateful. It was an amazing dining experience. The food were freshly prepared with flavours bursting in your mouth. Big portions too! Friendly and... More

Went to Pia's last week with my wife. It is off the beaten track (literally) set in the middle of a Padi field. The restaurant is rustic but in a very charming way. We sat for lunch of Beef Rendang and Chicken Butter Masala. The warm langkawi breeze blew through the restaurant and I honestly wanted to stay for hours... More

With food it's often the little things that count, and these guys have got it right. From the interior to the spices to the setting - it all feels authentic and like a lot of thought and care went into it. Wish we could've come here a few more times, keep it up.

Thank ThomasDeSchryver
