Went there to eat thai food. Portions made from beef didn't make us happy. Beef quality was poor. Easy on the pocket.

If just one of our family members had thrown up later that evening I wouldn't have mentioned it but the food tasted a little funky compared to all the food we'd eaten prior to dining here. Ordered one massaman curry with veggies but ended up...More

Do not. I repeat. DO NOT eat here. Food was absolutely tasteless if you don’t take into consideration the burnt taste. I could not finish my fried noodles for the life of me. Trust me when I say this, it is not worth it however...More

Poor way to cook Thai food: wrong spices, wrong vegetables, wrong flavours. Place seems quite busy though so some people might like it. I rather go to the Old Town on the east coast if I want some yummy food.

Very good food as always! Papaya salad is very tasteful. Hot pans are really good. The family is very friendly and the whole staff. This is our 4th vacation in Koh Lanta and we found the restaurant 3 years ago. We like it very much!

Read about it from many reviews. Went there for dinner with family. Prices are higher than other places and the food is just above average. However, the ambient is quite charming with sea shell chandeliers. Service is all right and the food came quite fast.

Cook Kai is another of our favourite places to go to when we visit Koh Lanta. It is simple fresh home cooked food. The seafood rice is delicious and you can taste the crunchiness of the veg in it and the rice is cooked to...More

Went here after reading excellent reviews, tried the prawn in sweet and sour sizzling plate. The waitress spoke no English whatsoever and couldn't even manage when I pointed to the menu. The food was ok, but nothing to rave about.
