out of the way up a track, you'll need to ask the loacal residents how to get here. Great food, full of local expats, nothing glamorous and watch out if you want to use the rest room facilities. V basic but get over it and enjoy the food.

Run by a local family who are really nice and make brilliant thai food.

The only drawback is they are not very fast. Waiting for an hour, even if you are the only customer, is not uncommon. But the food is worth waiting for. And when on holidays you're probably not in a hurry anyways.

- for pork lovers: this is one of the few restaurants which serves pork (considering that lanta is a muslim island predominantly). this is a thai Chinese restaurant
- one might note that some villas nearby take food orders from their guests and pass it to this restaurant to cook (for a small fee that is)
- the phad kway teow is nice - very authentic like how it should be done in Thailand and with a wok-taste (this can only be done is food is fried in the Chinese wok at very high temperature)
- the tom yum is also fiery. I like the tom yum goong; lotsa herbs and done perfect
- the kale vegetables is fried just nice: not over-cooked and keeps the veggies with the crunchy feel.

We returned here 3 times in our 5 night stay at Pimalai. I'd always deliberately avoid making repeat visits to the same places, but the food here was absolutely delicious. We even chose to substitute our special 'last night dinner' at the Pimalai's top restaurant to a return visit to Ba Kantiang instead... we liked it that much.

It's a rustic restaurant, so don't expect a polished environment. However you'll always find the locals eating here which says it all. Portions are enormous, everything is cooked fresh to order and it's a family run business with the two sons running front of house. Plus a batch of the cutest kittens playing amongst the tables!

The panang curry and pad thai were both out of this world. I wish this family all the best. They clearly work really hard and the quality of the food deserves them all the business they get. Delicious!
