I've had many kinds of burgers - these are for sure at the top! Glad I selected a burger, even though we came to have Thai food.
Next day we came back and took the Thai food: Also great.

The Thai food's cook is Thai, the Swedish Boss takes care of the other food.

Glad we came here (we had fish, Burgers and Thai food) after having had several Thai food in more than ten Thai restaurants.

A place you will return to more than once...
The food is simply amazing!

The burgers are to die for.
The sandwiches I get cravings for.
Did I mention the Swedish food section? Very fresh and tasty!
The Swedes do take food serious.

Ola, the restaurateur, is really putting his guests first. You are greeted with a warm smile and a calm that makes you feel most welcome.
He is very hands on in with preparing the food together with his chefs, serving, pouring wine, clearing tables.
A non-hierarchic Swedish approach gives such good vibes to the whole place.

All of the staff is attentive and and sweet.
I do have to mention Dao, the restaurant manager. She is the most professional and friendly person on Koh Lanta. She knows everything about the food, and explains patiently and entertaining about every little detail that you might wonder about.

A must visit while on Lanta.

We went for dinner with my husband after several days Thai food as we felt like it’s time for western food. We ordered burgers which were tasty and especially the different mayonnaise were nice to try. The owner was very friendly and gave us free drinks as we needed tour wait for our dishes little bit longer. In addition to the burgers they seemed to have some Thai and traditional Swedish dishes. They also had good selection of ciders for all of us non beer drinkers.I would go again if graving burgers!

Thanks for your understanding and review.
All island had a electricity cut for nine hours this day and we didn't have water at the restaurant during our busy hours. For the restaurant this is a nightmare.

Two kitchen staff was also absent this night and the waiting times for the food was of these reasons too long and didn't reach our normal standard this evening.

As you write we tried to compensate the guests who had to wait and I am happy to hear you will visit us again.
Very welcome!

After reading the good reviews we had high expectations on this new place on Lanta. We were not disappointed.

We tried their "Serious burger" which was truly burger perfection! Our daughter had the Swedish meatballs with lingonberries and they were greatly appreciated.

Service was fast and the staff was very friendly.
