Ok wow! Being rated 1 in all of koh lanta is a standard that usually sets you up for disaster. This was thankfully not the case. We rode in the pouring rain and dark for 20 mins when we could have eaten near our hotel. My friends were hungry, cold, wet and not impressed that there was a 15 min wait for a table. It was almost 8pm when we got there. I was regretting my decision to try this place but when we finally got our food everyone's frowns turned upside down. I had fruit curry which was good but then ruined when I tasted my friends Penang curry. Oh my buddha! Thinking it was better than we thought because we were so hungry, we went back the next night and it was still amazing! In fact every dish that we had was either very good or excellent. I wouldn't say it's thai food for a western palate. Unless you count portion size (big) or being able to choose how spicy you want it or whether you'd like noodles vs rice. For the price 120-200 an entree you can't beat this place. Even if they charged triple it would still be worth it. Best meal in Thailand, yep! Top three meals on our round the world trip, check! And I didn't even mention the warm and inviting service. Great job Kwan and family! See you soon

You simply will not find Nicer people with mouthwatering food on the island of Koh Lanta. Kwan gives her mothering vibes and the team go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home, the taste . The atmosphere is perfect. Lanta Love

This place is excellent, food is superb, very tasty, I recommend the Chicken Satay, amazing. The portions are huge however, so if like me you don't like to waste food go easy on the ordering, we had 2 appetizers and 3 meals between 2 of us, unfortunately we couldn't finish it. Each dish was delicious.

This place is awesome. Besides they are friendly even when it is full with guests, always they find a time to have a chat with you. We were there tuesday 12th Nov.. and tried it once because they're rated 1st on tripadvisor & everything we had was almost perfectly cooked and the taste really unbeliveable. The following days we tried others really good and nice Restaurants, also really worth to share a good meal/dinner, nevertheless kwan's cookery makes the difference in all. We liked mostly the simply, nice, relaxed atmosphere combined with the great food, spiced and prepared so lovingly and in a really so quick time!!
