“Always a must”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

This is a must to all who comes to Langkawi. Please make a booking in advance. I would recommend the Fish - in sweensour, the Pandan Chicken, the telur bungkus, Tom Yam and Son Tam. I love the fact that there is a prayer room as well. You must come early otherwise it is fully booked.

“On the bus”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

The food was enjoyable, but service was poor. More of a canteen with the hopes that more tour buses will arrives than the day before.

“Hospitaly staff and good food”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

Spicy food in thai-style. No alcohol is served. Prices are reasonable. If you want to have a table without prereservation you should be there at last 20.00.

“Difficult to find, but delicious”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

We went searching for Wan Thai on our motorbikes, having read reviews on the internet. We found it difficult to find because streets aren't marked very well in the area, but when we finally made it there the food was excellent! It was some of the best food we had in Langkawi - wonderfully spicy. The service was also very pleasant and efficient. Definitely recommended.

“Inconsistent Quality & Taste”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

Operating Hours: Daily: Lunch 11:00 am -3.00 pm & Dinner 6.30 pm -10:00 pm

Was here with colleagues for lunch for 8 pax. The restaurant is usually 3/4 full as they cater for large group brought over by the tour buses. Service was a little slow especially order-taking.

We ordered a number of dishes beginning with Thai Young Mango Salad which was not very good as it lacked taste. Sauteed asparagus with garlic, another disappointment as the asparagus was not even peeled/skinned and totally tasteless. Deep-fried Squid in Batter with Thai Chilli Sauce - squid was over fried and hard. Steamed Seabass in Sour Plum Sauce was the only dish that was good but it came after we had finished eating.

All in all a disappointing overall meal & service. Have eaten when it was better, go after the large groups have finished dining as then the service is faster & food tastes better
