Tonight, I was sitting at the terrace of Red Tomato, possibly the best pasta and pizza place in all Langkawi, trying to enjoy my dinner while being deafened by the noise coming from Red Sky and almost got burned by the sparks from the welding that was taking place next door. Because Red Sky has decided to "improve the image". They don't mind of course that their 'improvement' so happens at the time when the terrace of their next door neighbor is full... As a matter of fact, it would be very difficult to convince me that it was not intentional as the noise was full blast from the moment I arrived at 20:00 to about 21:15 when suddenly, that was it... Amazing that this would be the time when everyone has settled on a restaurant for dinner, don't you think? So I am saying to myself... if your food is so ordinary and tasteless that the only way you can attract customers is by renovating your place or chasing clients from your neighbors, then it's pretty pathetic, don't you think??? Did they care that they totally ruined the experience of the tourists sitting at the Red Tomato terrace? not at all... we were not sitting at the Red Sky terrace, so for them we were nobodies... So, if that's the kind of behavior that you want to encourage in Langkawi, by all means go and have fun at the Red Sky. But if you believe that the owner of that place needs to understand that respect of tourists and neighbors is a value that cannot be put aside, then ban him and eat at Red Tomato. Because people like that understand the talk of wallets... And anyway, you will have a far better eating experience, and I know because I ate once at Red Sky before finding out what an a word commerce it was, and the food was more than ordinary for the price they charge. But Red Tomato is always full, lunch or dinner, so I guess if Red Sky can't find a proper cook, the only other choice they have is effectively to try to chase their customers with noise and sparks... Well, you know what Red Sky? most tourists are a lot more intelligent than you think ... you will need to learn... And let the ban continue until you see on Trip Advisor an apology and compensation from Red Sky to Red Tomato, and a reply from Red Tomato acknowledging that this apology was genuine...

We ate twice at Red Sky and really enjoyed it both times. Ana, the Manager, is a great lady and we enjoyed talking to her. The food was very good and well presented. There is inside and outside seating and the bar/restaurant is really superbly fitted out compared with the average Cenang plastic table and chairs furniture!

We also sat in the upstairs bar room. What a lovely room, with TV and a book shelf for customer use.

The Red Sky is very near the Underwater World complex and has a lot of competition but they seem to have a healthy customer base

Waited over 30 mins for 2 drinks outside and after we ended up getting spongy calamari with no plates decided to abandon this dive and go next door to the red tomato.
What a great decision. Avoid!!!
