“We'll be back”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We have stayed on Pantai Tengah five times over the last twelve years have always had breakfast at the Cactus. Don't be put off by the appearance, it's kept very clean, the staff are very friendly and welcoming and the food is really good, excellent value for money and covers both regional and western tastes. An added bonus is the wildlife which can be seen in the bushes across the lane from the restaurant. From the flags and scarves (and other items) which decorate the place it seems primarily a young persons' location but we are now 60+ and have always enjoyed the atmosphere - it's a place for all ages. No hesitation in recommending.

“Delicious food, excellent value”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Doesn't look much from the outside, but the food is great and the service is excellent. All of the large hotels we have been to in Malaysia need to come to Cactus to learn about real customer service!. The prices are also excellent. I ate here at least 7 times on recent visit to Langkawi, and came across from Holiday Villa Resort to have breakfast every day, which was a third of the price. Also had dinner a couple of times as well, which was also very good. Fried noodles was only MR6, and was very filling. Beer was also very cold and cheap!.

“Tasty and filling!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This place is a little out the way but if you are staying on or near Pantai Tengah it's certainly the best breakfast selection going. The food was cheap, tasty and the service quick. We tried both the Malay and western breakfasts on offer and liked them both.

“Very Nice, Friendly Place”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

I wasn't sure that this place would live up to the hype of its reviews, but we ended up going there about five times during our week in Langkawi. It's a simple, friendly places that serves up good food morning, afternoon, and night. The prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly. The place was consistently crowded with people from across the globe, which gave it a cool, international atmosphere. The food won't make you feel like you're tasting for the first time or anything, but it is done very well.
