Neng really knows how to create special Thai dishes. The service is excellent and the food is not to miss.

We had gone to the Greek place opposite the night before and saw this place so we gave it a go. When we arrived it was already busy and we got the last table, the service was a little slow but we didn't mind. Two thai men rolled up with guitars and started singing western songs, it was great. The... More

Neng's was the best Thai food we had while in Koh Lanta. We ate there three times, once for lunch and twice for dinner. Our lunch was so delicious and Mr. Neng was so friendly, my group and I stayed a while and talked with him. Once we told him how delicious it was he offered to make us what... More

My wife and I went there to eat dinner. There were 6 tables, for a total of less than 20 customers. We ordered and then waited for over one hour, and nothing but drinks came on our table. For Thailand standards, it's not acceptable. There are hundreds of better options in the neighborhood, avoid this place.

During our three week stay in Thailand, this was the best food we had the entire trip. And sooooooo afordable! If you're in Ko Lanta, go to Neng's. And make sure to order the banana pancakes!

We've been twice to Neng's and were 'warned' before - sometimes the food seems to be ecxellent, sometimes not good at all. Not sure if depending on the cook, but we've been twice and ate different things and always like it a lot. Fresh, spicy, authentic. Although I am absolutely not into the usual one-man-band with an electric piano, their... More

Good enough but don't make plans to go out of your way to go there. Food was ok but missed taste. Good prices however and great cheap drinks.

Nengs restaurant is absolutely the best and really value for money! Mr Neng is a dear man and make his cooking from heart and always super fresh. The menu will satisfy everyone though it contains both splendid thai and western dishes. The cosy place that he runs with his wife and good friends, Nengs family, give you the best in... More

We went to Neng on recommendation of our hotel owner and it really is a hidden gem. The first night I had the best and by far most fresh Tom Yam I've ever head. After chatting to the lovely owner of Neng he invited us back the next day for a traditional Thai lunch (his style) and off menu which... More
