I've been 17 times ( once or twice a year) in Langkawi, I found this lovely restaurant many years ago with a help of my local friends. Good food and wonderful staff. And friendly and beatiful restaurant manager.

If you are looking for outstanding local food, you should try out Maya's restaurant. Maya is the perfect host and she operates her own restaurant with friendly local staff. The menu offers a range of Malay and Thai dishes as well as a range of Western options. The beef rendang is my favourite but all the local dishes have great... More

Maya is a great character! Beautiful and kind and really looks after her guests. You will get a great welcome and Maya's is popular and can be very busy during the main season. No alcohol is served but you can BYO at no extra charge and glasses and ice are provided. Extensive local/Thai menu and great value. Langkawi curries are... More

We decided to eat here as Cactus was closed ...shouldn't have bothered. Starters ok but main meal my spicy chicken wasn't spicy and had three pieces of chicken, my husband had duck but what arrived appeared to be a sliced sausage - probably reconstituted duck - not happy ! Will be back at Cactus when next open!

Good local food (especially local curries, chicken was slightly better than beef), amazing juices (try the orange juice!), friendly waitress and not expensive.

2 friends and I waited ~30min for a simple meal which came out cold, we then had to wait another 20min for the bill. The food itself was tasty enough and very cheap but the whole experience was a waste of time. Fast and free wifi.

The food is very tasty, the portions are big enough, so that for some dishes you should order one portion for 2 persons. The prices are quite reasonable. We lived at Holiday Villa and been here few times, every visiting was a good experience. Highly recommended if you don't want to pay for any blows and whistles in other restaurants.

Ordered a Thai and Malay curry. We are a pure vegetarian couple and the chef followed our instructions perfectly. You have to wait a bit for the food but that's an indicator of its freshness. Simply delicious. !

Maya is an excellent host and enjoys talking to her customers. She serves Thai and traditional Malay dishes. The smoked duck in curry sauce is especially good. The prices are very reasonable and the staff are friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Langkawi especially at Pentai Cenang

Thank William H
