In my opinion, this location is one of the best restaurants in Saladan. Tried different dishes there, all were very tasty (especially the green duck curry) and fish was very fresh. In addition, very friendly staff. I can definitely recommend this place.

I thought the food was very good. The beer was ice cold and all was served fast. I'm not so sure about fish. I went to most of these places and looked at fish. Not sure how quick the turn over is. They brought us fresh fruit after dinner comp. I also thought that was nice.

Our visit to this well reviewed restaurant would've been much nicer had the waiting staff concentrated more on service than on being friendly. Our main courses arrived before our starters and we constantly needed to remind them to provide new cutlery. The food wasn't bad, the service simply awful.

We had grilled sea bass, chilli basil mussels and chicken spring rolls. Chicken spring rolls tasted really fresh and was delicious. Mussels were our least favourite- could be a bit spicier. Grilled sea bass and the sauce - absolutely amazing! Service was very attentive and complimentary fruits plate at the end of the dinner was a really nice touch.:)

Located in the port area at the north of the island Kung is probably the best restaurant on koh Lanta. Fantastic choice and the food is exceptional.
