If you are after fine dining then maybe visit Pimalai, but if you want delicious local food with extremely friendly staff and locales, then this is your place. Not the most salubrious destination, but tasty and cheap.

We had dinner at this very low key restaurant. Food is decent (grilled fish was fine but chicken was rather bland). Inexpensive for Koh Lanta.
