We experienced the best thai spicy food in Bailan Bay and probably all Koh Chang. Quality cocktails made by host Nick and excellent quality food made by his wife Sou. Nice atmosphere, interesting conversations. It was also great to hear Nick's experience in trailrunning and...More

If you are in Koh Chang, definitely try this little gem. Run by Nick and his wife, this restaurant offers a variety of Thai and Western dishes at reasonable prices.

We learned a lot from the cooking class. It was very nice to do. You can choose what you want to prepare and you get a recipe book. Also the food is very good.

Very close to the Mercure Hotel, 5 min. walk. Rates are much cheaper, food is average, drinks are expensive- like in the 4 star hotel.Staff is friendly and quite quick. After 8 pm you have to wait for free seats

Visited here for lunch and dinner and all the food was exceptionally good. Generous portion sizes, apart from the steamed rice, could do with a little more but it's very cheap so could order 2 portions instead! Western food great for kids and lots of...More

Happy turtle is located in Bailan bay on Koh Chang. We offer you real Thai food (if you ask for spicy it will be..), we also have a nice mix of western food.In our bar we have nice fresh coffee, cocktail/drinks , ice cream, milkshakes, fruit shakes.We use no MSG in the cooking and everything is prepared from scratch when orderd,,, so with a buzy restaurant you might have to wait a bit for the food. we think it is well worth it
