This is the first restaurant we tried during our one-week stay in Koh Lanta - our resort is right across the street - and what a find! Absolutely outstanding food by Kwan, who is from Chiang Mai. Her Khao Soi is probably the best my...wife and I have tried, and we have been living in Thailand for four years! Also delicious som tam, phat thai, green curry and so on. Not only that but Kwan was the friendliest and most thoughtful of hosts. She showed our older daughter (5 yr) how to cook, gave both our daughters handmade purses from Chiang Mai, gave us fruits to bring back to our hotel, and lent us a motorbike to use during our stay!!! Kwan just reopened after three months of being out of business because of Covid. She does need your support, and I absolutely guarantee that you will not regret it. We ate lunch or dinner at Kwan’s 5 times in 6 days 😁😁😁More

This little very authentic restaurant was the best restaurant I‘ve visited in Thailand. I went there every single day during my holidays in Koh Lanta and I did‘t regret it once. Actually I‘m thinking to go back to Thailand just to eat there again 😂!...It was really really amazing! I tried several dishes and all were very good. You should also try a watermelon shake 🤤More

Wonderful hospitality. Made to feel really welcome. Khao soi Chiang Mai style? Maybe, but it didn’t seem very special. Big portion, but only with an average taste.

A must visit if you're on Lanta. Kwan and her staff are so lovely and welcoming, and the food is fantastic. We went for supper one evening and ended up signing up for her cooking class the next day -- she lets you pick what...you want to make ahead of times and prepares it with you, and you stop to eat each course before moving on to the next -- and she's an absolute blast! This was one of the hilights of our trip to Thailand, don't miss Kwan's!More

Kwan is, first of all, a wonderfull person. Full of power. Really friendly. A sunny woman. And so is her citchen. We really enjoyed our visit there. We tasted a lot of plates. Starting with the papaya salad. Differents soups. We ate the very best...curry we have ever tried. Finally we had the sticky rice with mango. An excellent finish. Not too sweet. Thank you Kwan for this nice experience. We can only recommend you to try Kwan's citchen.More

We had the pleasure of eating at Kwan’s restaurant 4 nights in a row and each time given such a warm welcome, the absolute best food in thailand, and always left with a smile on our face. The price was fair, especially considering the portion...size of each dish. The Khao Soi is an absolute must try when visiting! But any dish you receive you'll find has been made with A great love. We couldn't recommend this spot more, if you are in the area you have to go! Thanks again Kwan!More

Kwan is a superb teacher and host, she is very informative and has a fun, bubbly personality. All the food she taught us here was by far the best we have had in Thailand so far. If you are considering doing a cooking class or...somewhere to eat this is the place to go!More
