The price in a restaurant on Lanta is expected. This one is also acceptable for the quality and portion. If I need something a bit fancy than Mr.Green nearby I just go to Cook Kai.

Great staff, great food and great value! Had quite a few evening meals here and were never disappointed. As we were staying across the road, it was really convenient to pop over for take away lunch. The hamburgers are amazing and you can get really addicted to them. My other half had tuna salad every day and rated this highly.... More

We ate some breakfasts, lunches and dinners here and were never disappointed. Cuisine is fairly standard Thai but well executed and always served with a smile. The proximity of the road could bother some. Very pretty at night with lots of lanterns hanging from the ceiling.

I have eaten here a few times and only local food, which I found nice. Good portions. You pay a bit more here, I would say mid range compared around the area. The menu has a good selection of local and western food. The restaurant is clean and the staff are nice.

Food was ok, service ok. Nothing too memorable, but worth going if you are staying near by. Fun detail was that you have to take your shoos off when entering the restaurant.
