We wanted to visit this restaurant during our holiday in Langkawi as it was highly reviewed by TripAdvisor. It is located in the midst of a paid field, overseeing the field when you dine. It took us about half an hour to locate the place and we were shocked to see the restaurant was closed (lunch time). However there was a note pasted on the entrance..."The restaurant is opened, please call.....", and we called the number. Within 5 mins, we saw a guy riding his motorbike approaching the restaurant and he's Jimmy - the owner/chef of the restaurant (super friendly guy).

We asked for his recommendation as there was no menu available (except for some menus scribbled on the blackboards in the restaurant) and he offered a set lunch package for 2 pax (Samosa for appetiser, Fish Marsala, Beef Rendang, Mixed Vegetables with White Rice for main course and Mango Kulfi for dessert). The fish was so fresh and the beef was super tender, everything just blended in nicely. It was my first time having a very delicious and yummy Fish Marsala and Beef Rendang; and I still miss these dishes when I look at the pictures.

Overall it is a restaurant that one should not miss in Langkawi.....!!

It is the first visit with surprise and wonderful experience.
Although it is located at the urban location but worth it.
I highly recommended you may be there around 6pm to enjoy the sunset view before your lovely dinner.
It is a home base business with great service. There is no menu to choose but the chef daily recommendations, according to him there is around 200 recipes! !
The price is not cheap but it is worthy.

We were 'the family without gadgets'! Great food, amazing views (especially at sunset) and most important a beautiful family serving us. A very special time that will stay with us always. Thank you!

We are frequent travellers to Langkawi and this time around my husband's niece and her husband came along with us. At the airport, as usual, we were handed maps and places of interest to see and in the midst of all these, was a photostat copy of reviews in Tripadvisor on Pia's The Padi, which we haven't been before. I called and made a reservation for four pax for dinner and we drove there. The signage was quite small and off the main road in Ulu Melaka. My heart sank as we arrived there, it wasn't well maintained and weeds were overgrown in the planter boxes. Jimmy, the owner and chef came to inform us that there was no menu as he has a package that costs RM75, which includes free flow of drinks from his drink menu. We are Malaysians, basically what he serves is Indian curries, to us his curries are nothing to shout about! We have curries that are so much tastier than what he serves and we aren't charged the exorbitant price that he charges and we definitely won't be forced to take a package! We can deduced that he cooks these few items only and the guests are 'advised' to take the package! The only thing I can give credit to this place is the sunset view and the free flow of drinks! We weren't impressed, in fact we felt short changed and we definitely won't be back to this restaurant. Please note that there is a 10% service charge as well and he takes cash only.

Wow. We loved this place! Picturesque setting,lovely hosts and a relaxing delicious meal. Jimmy recommended we try a set menu with drinks included and we were not disappointed. The kids played cards while we sipped and watched the sun set. Tasty entrees followed by curries to die for. Fresh , full of flavor and quite simply as good as they get. Tip - take cash as no credit card facilities. Some meals are truly memorable and this was one. Worth the 20 minute taxi from the Westin. Don't miss it.
