We were the only guests at first but soon the little restaurant filled up. Even though Neng was alone serving tables and cooking the meals everything came out of the kitchen fairly fast. This guy definitely knows how to cook and is very humble and friendly too. His Phad Thai had a nice kick of chilli in and Tom Kha... More

Absolutely the best food and the most wonderful chef - Neng! Running the whole restaurant by himself is a big challenge but he is doing it fabulous! Also a really good cooking teacher as he teached us how to make dishes we ordered. Neng is one of the most passionate chef we've ever met. Unforgattable experience - don't miss it!... More

Neng's place is already one reason for going back to Koh Lanta. What a lovely place. The food is superb. Try some different things from the menu!, I bet you won't find anything that doesn't live up to Neng's outstanding reputation. We had a bit of trouble finding it, because Google Maps showed that it was on the other side... More

We stopped by at Nengs for a late lunch time meal, at first it looked closed as there was no one around. We decided to sit down and we were not disappointed. The food was prepared in an open kitchen and in next to no time we were eating delicious Thai food. While we were waiting a lot of locals... More

We stopped over at Koh Lanta for 4 nights as part of our travels through Thailand, and after a little explore on the moped we discovered Neng's. He welcomed us into his little restaurant, and served some incredible authentic Thai food, and an incredibly small price. We ordered Authentic Northern Thai Style Beef, and it was certainly authentic! That with... More

That Thai food doesn't have to be expensive is a fact. AND THATS WHY I LOVE NENG! Yumm food for a reasonable price! The Neng restaurant has been at different spots on the island eg Klong Kong in the very beginning, Klong Dao afterwards and it is at Phra Ae nowadays! The food is excellent and differs to most of...

Eating at Neng's is always a great pleasure. The chef and owner, Neng is really passionate about food and that shows. Here you can get true, authentical thai food for really affordable price. Try the red curry or pumpkin curry, the absolutely best ones in Ko Lanta!

The title says it all. Have eaten here many times and every time the food is of excellent quality! Order something special off the menu, Neng will make you very happy! Prices are amazingly reasonable and Neng always cooks from his heart!

We have had lunch at Neng's two times; we had several dishes that are all instantly cooked with fresh ingredients by the owner and it tastes great! The best Thai food we had and well affordable!!
