The restaurant is open all day and offers meals from morning till later in the evening. They even have a pool table. The owner takes pride in the coffees they serve. Although it's all quite good, it is a bit more expensive than other restaurants...More

Food is mainly Thai despite some western dishes. Anyhow both of them are really good. The music that night was like Metallica... but soft. Best choice of fruit shake we found so far on the island

We learned a lot from the cooking class. It was very nice to do. You can choose what you want to prepare and you get a recipe book. Also the food is very good.

Happy turtle is located in Bailan bay on Koh Chang. We offer you real Thai food (if you ask for spicy it will be..), we also have a nice mix of western food.In our bar we have nice fresh coffee, cocktail/drinks , ice cream, milkshakes, fruit shakes.We use no MSG in the cooking and everything is prepared from scratch when orderd,,, so with a buzy restaurant you might have to wait a bit for the food. we think it is well worth it
