We ate there almost every evening of our Koh Lanta stay. The owner of the restaurant is so friendly and helpful. If you're not sure about a dish just ask him, he will recommend you things or change it like you want to have it. We liked the food a lot. My girlfriend tried a fish and she said it... More

We visit here every time we come to Koh Lanta as the food is consistently good and they make it Thai Spicy if you ask. The fish is always very fresh and delicious and the service reasonably quick. We love it.

They told us that they had Pad Thai, and instead of crunchy peanuts on top, Kung used roasted onions... Anyway, we gave it a try, ordered... More

The staff advised us which fish to choose, depending on whether we would prefer it grilled, steamed or fried! The price is very reasonable, we paid less than 600 THB (12 euros) for 1 seabass for 2 and... More
