There are not many good eating options of a reasonable standard on Don Khone, but The Garden was delicious. We had dinner twice and it was interesting to watch the calm professionalism of the young chef and his assistants in full view. You could see and taste the very fresh ingredients used in the meals which were very good value for money. We had local curries and larb with sticky rice. Very highly recommended!

We came here twice because we enjoyed it so much the first time. We enjoyed the Lao cocktail made with the local liqueur and very fresh with lime. The food is cooked the roadside entrance to the restaurant and everything was extremely fresh. You could see and hear all the chopping and sizzling so our appetites were fired up by the time the food came. Delicious.

We fell in love with this restaurant. It is a culinary highlight of the 4000 islands and should not be missed. This was our favorite restaurant in Southeast Asia due to the food as much as the owner (in 2.5 months of traveling). The food is delicious and the atmosphere is relaxing. The owner is incredibly kind and helpful. We did not use their other services, but they also offer lodging and a massages.

In more detail...
We tried several other places on the island, but nothing compared to this restaurant. We ate here for several meals, and almost stayed longer just to enjoy more of the wonderful food. Every meal we had to eat was prepared to perfection from the flavors to the presentation. Ask the owner about local specialty dishes. The restaurant has amazing ambiance. The area is clean, manicured, comfortable, and relaxing. Furthermore, you can watch the food being prepared in the outdoor kitchen, which makes dinner more entertaining.

The owner, Done, is local to the 4000 islands (from Don Khong). His sister (who worked in the food industry in Thailand for many years) also works at the restaurant. His english is good, he is friendly, and helpful. We had some great conversations with Done about where to go, what to see, and even helped us book the local ferry. He studied massage in Thailand for several years and based on the meticulous attention to detail at the restaurant, I imagine the other services offered here are excellent.
