To eat at the special place as in the photo, you have to pre booked it and give some deposit or else on the day you come they wont allowed you to sit there & tell you its already been reserved. U can only sit at the normal dining table. Came here because i wanted to experience some "makan di tepi sawah feel" . For the price of food, its a bit pricey because the portion is not big. Btw photo & reality will not always same. So don't give high expectation. The taste is ok.

The restaurant next to the Laman Paddi attraction is nicely located in The rice paddies directly at the main road but can transport you to the Kampung!
Unfortunately the menu is mostly not available. The service is terrible. Is it because of the long Covid pause? The food is Malaysian Nasi Lemak . Looks good but we did not try it. Could not wait that long. Just getting our drinks was complicated enough.
The staff is friendly but obviously not enough of them.

The museum provides good information on rice production and processing. It is free and air-conditioned. The surrounding area is quite nice. There is also a cafeteria that serves Malaysian cousin. It is worth a visit if you have time

Laman Padi is opposite the Pelangi resort on the edge of town. It's not so easy to find the entrance and you just sort of walk in without realising (entry is free). The museum is quite informative about the production of rice and there are lots of displays of equipment, however a lot of the surrounding buildings and grounds are in somewhat of a dilapidated state. There is so much potential here to make something special. You can wander round the small sections of padi feilds and see rice in various stages of growth. Restoran Kerisik which sits in the grounds and over the padi fields is well worth a visit even if you don't visit the museum and serves delicious local Malay food in beautiful surroundings.

The restaurant name at this Laman Padi is Restoran Kerisik. You can park your car at Laman Padi carpark at walk to the Restaurant. If you do not want to eat at the pondok, you can eat at the main restaurant. We chose to eat at the pondok. The food is nice. Price might be a bit expensive for certain dish. But overall still affordable.

Had mixed feelings when visiting this place. Saw some great reviews on food and Laman Padi. But when we were there, it was something totally different. Not sure if we came at the wrong time. Reason being some Tripadvisor reviewers mention about a restaurant, with nice food. Where you could dine in little sheds in the middle of padi fields. But when we went there the place looked desserted. 

The Laman Padi is a nice idea of spreading information and history of rice. We have been to the Padi Museum in Kedah. Which was rather informative. But the Laman Padi was different. They had they very own padi field along with buffaloes and ducks. However the place ia poorly maintained. But admission is free.

When we went there, Langkawi was going through a rainy spell. Maybe the tourist moving around was lesser. There were nobody to greet us or show us around. We just walked around looking at the different exhibits. Looking at the padi fields, we guess that they did some kind of demonstration on ways of harvesting padi there. But like I mentioned before maybe we came at the wrong time.

There were different exhibits showing the process of planting padi till the production of rice. Which was quite educational. With some pastimes hobbies that the farmers indulge in. Outside there is also a local herb garden, different machinery used. Both traditionally and modern. And a padi field complete with scarecrow.  Great place for taking photos.

My Verdict

A nice informative place to learn about production of rice. But I feel the management should put in more activities to let people feel whats it like to be in a padi field. You can charge a small fee. People like me don't mind paying if the experience is unique.

Recently (a few days ago) visited Laman Padi located nearby Chenang Beach Langkawi together with my wife and our 2 teenage/college kids, with high hope that it will gives me and my family good information about "Sawah Padi" and everything about THE most precious agricultural product in Malaysia ; but sadly there was nobody around to at least greet and welcome us to the Laman Padi , there was no Reception nor Guest book for us to write and affirm that we are one of the visitor(s) that visit the place.

The entrance area leading to the Museum entrance (and a pathetic looking Restaurant) was not well taken care, as there are broken pavement cement blocks and the walk-way is also uneven which will become a dangerous hazard to senior citizen that wish to visit the place.

Once we entered the Museum area , it is with bad smell and to make it even worst - there is no air-conditioning system at all but the place is only equipped with old ceiling fans that BADLY need to be replaced. The items , pictures , old flyer displays all looks very old and very-very dusty , as if nobody bother to wipe it off !

Did I just mentioned that Laman Padi is located near the Chenang Beach area, where all tourists will definitely visit Laman Padi as one of their tourist attraction place ? Well, if all the setbacks that I just mentioned above are not being taken care of , it will tarnish Langkawi Island image as a Tourist destination in Malaysia.

So, I seriously urge all the relevant authorities in Langkawi - such as LADA , Tourism division of Langkawi , Kedah state government and all concerned to immediately do drastic improvement and transform Laman Padi to be worth visiting !

The Laman Padi rice fields were located just out the back of our hotel so we decided to visit one lunch time. We sat in the fields in one of the little wooden huts which was such a beautiful setting to have lunch. We ordered the sharing platter with beef rendang, rice, soup, prawn crackers and a salad. The beef rendang was lovely and the food was served on a banana leaf which felt really authentic. The food was really reasonably priced costing approx 50RM for the sharing platter.

It's not just at Laman Padi Langkawi that we are interested in. The beaches are nice as well.
However, we managed to capture some waterbirds like egrets, herons and even a couple of raptors in that area. However, an umbrella would be an ideal companion there, not so much from rain, but from the sun.
