Visited twice during our stay in Lanta. Both times good thai- food, for reasonable price. It's nice that you can basically see the cooking as the kitchen is in the middle of the tables. Would recommend this place.

The first time we went for dinner we had green curry and pad thai, and it was flavoursome. But the second time we had yellow curry and bbq chicken, and it wasn’t nice. Looks like some items will be good.

We read some exciting reviews about the place and went there with hight expectations, however we only evidenced relatively high prices (considering the lowest end), tiny portions, poorly english speaking staff and spiritless surroundings. I appreciate the fact that general standards are lower in Lanta,...More

Always love to come back to May's Kitchen. Food is great, freshly prepared, authentic and great value for money. Definitely check out the daily Barbecue offers of whole fish, ribs, and more. Service is very friendly. The evenings are always quite busy, but it's always...More
