“Excellent is not a good enough description”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

We absolutly loved Panlaan. From the apatisers to our meal, if db there was anything negative to say, is that we got too full too fast. The food was delicious, the atmosphere is trendy, the staff and owner, very pleasant.
This was a memorable dinner for my wife and I.
This is a must of you plan to visit St Maarten!!!

“Excellent Food and Amazing Views”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

This is some of the best Thai food I've had outside Bangkok. Fresh, plentiful and delicious. The Thai chef is the wife of the owner so the food and experience are authentic. The big bonus is the location. A large veranda right on the bay. Great way to spend an afternoon or evening.

“Thai Food - St. Maarten”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

This is a MUST go! Thai was amazing. When vacationing on the island I was in search for something different. This was top of the line Thai food. The appetizers and meals were excellent. If you like spicy this is the place to go. Had a nice outside location on the water. This place can be tough to find but it is there! I would definitely recommend and return to this restaurant.

“Go! One of the best dinners we had on the island.”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

We are big Thai food fans and we will most likely repeat this restaurant during our one week stay. The duck was the tastiest meal. Chicken Satay for the appetizer was the best I've ever had. EVER. The Panlaan Mojito again, best Mojito EVER! Waterfront dining can't be beat. The service was personalized and all the recommendations he made were top notch.
