If you notice, most of the top - ranked restaurants in Langkawi do not offer breakfast. I presume this is because most of the tourists have their breakfast at the resorts that they are staying and these particular restaurants would probably cost a bomb to outsiders. It is therefore wonderful that a restaurant like Cactus restaurant exists. They provide a... More

Simple restaurant. I ordered Thai chicken cashew. It was simple but delicious for very good price. Don't expect a fancy place....go for the food.

7 days we were in Holiday Villa, we had our dinner at Cactus. The food is so delicious. Our favorite were all the duck dishes. But there all good. So as one of the reviews said, don't judge the modest facade look of this resturant, go in!!! Services is great too.

Food was average; we really thought it'd be better judging from all the reviews. But we only ate the Thai fried duck, omelette and seafood tomyam. Might give it another shot and try the seafood next time.

The food was good but so small portions. Would not go again because the food is not good enough to make up for the small portions.

Gorgeous roast duck salad they serve here. The duck is pink and succulent. Salad with lemongrass, chilli, lemon. No fish sauce. Thank to that. Don't like fishy. Specialty toufu and local morning glory were great too. Beef rendang do come with rice. Every spoonful with a kick. Not too sweet. Don't put too much hope on hokkien noodles. Nothing like... More

Great food......DON'T miss it. It was just outside our Hotel (Holiday Villa) Lots of choice, lovely atmosphere and very friendly people. It's not a 5 star Michelin joint....it's just a very good place to eat.

What a great place the Cactus is. Its easy to consider walking passed on first appearances, but notice it is the one busy restaurant in Tengah! Once you sit down, and calibrate yourself to the surroundings, you will start to appreciate the informal charm of the place, the friendly service and the fantastic food. Great Chinese and local dishes, plus... More
