Description: Kantiang Restaurant has moved to opposite The Sea, by the Petrol Station, on the bend, before you arrive in Kantiang Bay. Kantiang Restaurant is the best! Owned and run by the lovely Pi-On and his family, this is a real Thai restaurant that all the locals eat at. Offering a range of authentically prepared Thai dishes

This place was so good we went twice on our 5 days in Ko Lanta. The pad thai was the most flavorful pad thai I've ever had. Completely on a level of its own. Tried 3 other things on the menu and every one of them was outstanding. The restaurant is run by a very friendly family and they even gave us a ride home one night when it was raining. Truly can't say anything wrong with this place.

We ate here on our penultimate night in Koh Lanta and it was far and away the best food we had. Until our meal here, the food had been decidedly average and underwhelming compared to the flavours and colours of the food in Chiang Mai.
The pad Thai was delicious as was the papaya salad, the Red curry was a much drier dish than we had previously had and was delicious, bursting with flavour . The dishes come out, one at a time and are steaming hot. The owner couldn’t have been nicer and gave the children complimentary fruits for dessert. We booked a table for tonight. It’s also worth mentioning it was much cheaper then anywhere else too. What a delight.

This place is a must if you are on Ko Lanta! Great family owned place and very laid back. Great view overlooking the sea. If you want authentic thai food, come here. Also caters to a couple of dive boats everyday if you are lucky to be on them. Anti-gravit Divers and Scubafish Diving!

This restaurant was near Golden Pool Villas before (where we always stay when on Lanta), but has now moved to a new location on the road leading to Kantiang Bay. We could still get the food delivered to our villa, and it was still great as usual. Great food at very good prices.
