“Best meal in Langkawi!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

We read the reviews and decided to try and find Pia's the Padi for dinner. While it is a short drive (20 mins from our hotel) we were so glad we did. Great host (Jimmy) suggested some dishes to try from his extensive menu while we watched the sun set over the Padi fields and distant mountains. This was a standout meal after living in Malaysia for four years. We will definitely try and get back again!

Thank Dornash

“Brilliant food and relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Definitely worth finding, we had a fantastic meal and drinks overlooking the rice padi's. Saw the sign on the road while travelling around the island and thought we would stop. Extremely happy we did, best Beef Rendang and curries we've had. When we were thinking about a spinach curry and then decided against it as we had tried a couple recently already, Jimmy took it as a challenge and made us his version. It was beautiful and by far the best. Great place, highly recommended.

“A relaxing lunch amidst lush padi fields”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We almost missed the turning into the tiny lane leading to Pia's the Padi but saw the signpost just in time. Driving down from Tanjong Rhu to Ulu Melaka about 5-10 min after the Gunung Raya turning, the turning to the restaurant is on the right side of the road.

On this weekday during the off-peak season, we were the only guests in the restaurant and Jimmy simply decided what dishes to cook for us after checking with us whether we had any dietary preferences (no... not really...) and how much spice the adults would like (we indicated a spice rating of 3 out of a 10 point scale). The next 20 minutes or so was spent soaking in the surroundings while waiting for the food which turned out to be: beef rendang, fish curry (a creamy kind of masala), butter chicken and vegetables, all accompanied by a generous serving of rice and crackers which my two girls (6 and 8) devoured. The food was well-done and reminded me of the curries I had in the UK. We rounded up the meal with a mango Lassi and the home-made chocolate cake and ice-cream (total cost approx. RM180). Overall, a most memorable and enjoyable meal. Those with children may want to bring insect repellent considering the location.
