This little place serves expertly crafted and cooked Thai food. The French owner, his lovely Thai wife and the lady cook are deserving of high praise for the quality of food they serve and the prices they charge. Value, style and true hospitality, right on the main road in Bailan Bay. We ate there most days and loved every meal.... More

The Thai food there was good although in a foreigner tourist area. Which is not always easy. I was very surprised that the tomatoes in the tom yum soup seems very fresh and tasty, although after living in Thailand for 3 years I seldom see such fresh ingredients. The service is quiet good the staff offer you a local "caramel"... More

I have been coming to Koh Chang & Bai Laan for a very long time now and I just cannot say how amazing the food, staff & service is here. This place is always packed, the food keeps on getting better yearly and the staff and the service remains always the same. The Panang Curry (thai style spicy on request)... More

We stayed in Bailan Bay, Koh Chang for 8 nights and ate at Tamarin at least 12 times which speaks volumes for their friendly service, fair prices, big portions, tasty food: all aspects which were consistently excellent. Their Pad Thai is excellent and we find ourselves using Tamarind's Pad Thai as the standard by which all others are judged as... More

This restaurant has a decent menu covering western and Thai tastes with a little Mexican thrown in. I had two meals here that were tasty and a good value.

The food was just awful. I went there with my family because of its good ranking on Tripadvisor but this restaurant offered us a very bad experience of Thai food. My pad thai was the worst I have ever eaten. My parents ordered the chicken with cashew nuts. The chicken was deep fried (it didn't say that on the menu),... More

Visited this place almost daily with my girlfriend when we stayed in Ko Chang for a week. Once we figured out that the portions were way bigger then anywhere else we went to and the food quality was much better we ended up not wasting our time with other places in the area. I would highly recommend! Cashew Chicken was... More
