The food here is some of the best we've eaten in my boyfriend and I's month of travel in Thailand! The dishes are so flavorful and there are many vegetarian options. The staff were so friendly and the service was excellent. We will definitely be returning!

The food we had was incredibly tasty, in the top 5 meals I've had in Thailand. The prices were very competitive in the lower end market. As a result in the low season it's the only restaurant I've seen in Thailand with people waiting to be seated. 10/10

The staff were very friendly and accomodating. Mango smoothie was tasty and food delicious and reasonably priced. Good vibe too. Definitely would recommend.

Visited this week, it's on the main road near the Mosque if you are looking for it. Food was ok. Just average, nothing outstanding. I can only think that it gets rated highly as it's a little cheaper than beachfront places. I have eaten in better places with much nicer surroundings for and extra 20 bht. Don't get its high...

We were disappointed. There was an hour backup since only the mom cooks (which the daughter nicely warned us about upfront before we ordered), but the food don't live up to the hype...or wait. The fried shrimp appetizer was hands down the best part of the meal. Followed by the fried noodle with "kale" (aka Chinese broccoli). The green curry... More

We had dinner at The Kitchen yesterday. We shared chicken satay as appetizer and both took a curry as main course. What can I say?! The peanut sauce of the chicken satay was absolutely delicious, I cannot remember having had a better sauce in my life before!!! Also the Currys were both incredible yummy. We both finished our dishes completely.... More

Me and my boyfriend saw the reviews of this place and decided to give it a try. We arrived at 7.30pm and placed our order straight away. We ordered chicken satay to start and 2 main meals. At 8.25pm we still hadn't received our starter, so we asked how long the food would be and waitress said they only had... More

we had dinner and it was one of the best we had in Thailand. We found it to be not too spicy. Food was authentic and delicious and we also liked he cocktails (e.g. freshly queezed orange juice in my tequila sunrise!)

The kitchen was amazing. Right on the main road and close the the pier on the north east side. As long as you don't mind the local cats(they everywhere on the island) must stop for anyone traveling to the area.

In my opinion, the best food we had in Lanta. Flee from the pricy food of the hotels, there you have far better quality for a lower price. Plus, the service is really good. You have to be a cat lover though, as some of the restaurants' ones will surely pay you a visit during your meal. Only downside: doesn't... More
