Stewart, the owner, invited us to his inaugural ex-pat(and locals) party, and we were a bit reluctant at first, but man, we had a great time and met tons of great people! The food Stewart makes himself for his guests is a Thai influenced menu, and out of this world good! It is also reasonably priced. The restaurant is slightly off the beaten tourist track, but seek it out, you won't be disappointed! Stewart is a great human, so it's worth it just to meet him, if nothing else! Shout out to you Stewart! Keep the beers cold for us!

Funky chicken is one of the best Thai food restaurants I have eaten at in a while. The Chef, Stewart, lived in Thailand for many years -- he is the waiter, the chef, and sits with you to discuss any topic you can imagine. On Wednesdays, he invites everyone to a pot lot event to hear jazz-- so, you not only have a great meal other days, but you also get to meet people visiting the island and locas under a great jazzy atmosphere. Worth visiting.

When a few friends and I decided we wanted to have a "ladies night" here on Utila, we started to think about where to go. We had heard great things about Funky Chicken Inn but most of us had never been. We contacted Stewart, the owner, and asked if he would be willing to accommodate somewhere between 10-15 of us for dinner one evening. He gladly accepted and more than exceeded our expectations. He brought out a number of courses including appetizers, main courses (yes that's multiple), and even a couple deserts for each of us! The food was fantastic! We started off with a delicious papaya salad and a homemade dim sum. He also brought out thai bread rolls. We had a few different types of curries, all of which were fantastic. And he finished it off with a lovely frozen banana with chocolate as well as a fruit sorbet. Every last bite of the meal was incredible. He was extremely accommodating to our big group, even serving more food than we could eat almost (but trust me, we ate it all. It was too good not to!). Definitely recommend his restaurant. It's a perfect quiet setting for an intimate gathering like ours, or even a lovely date night. I will definitely be taking my partner back for our own intimate date night one of these days. Enjoy Utila's very own little bit of Thai food :)
