Reviewed 1 February 2017

Who would expect to find outstanding Greek food just a short walk from our beach paradise at the Lanta Island Resort on the main beach at Ko Lanta? After our visit to Greece this summer, I was prepared for less than stellar food in this corner of sourthern Thailand, but I was pleasantly surprised. The chef is warm, talented, and a genuine Greek. The menu has many classic Greek dishes, and what we tasted was terrific. They had a special plate available of slow-cooked lamb (roasted over 4 hours) that was the best lamb I can ever recall eating. Succulent, flavored with marjoram and other good spices, and the potatoes that were cooked with it had soaked up wonderful rich flavor. So perfect!

We also ordered the mezze vegetarian dish which included truly delicious egg plant balls and a variety of other delights.

We shared those two large dishes with four people. The cost was about 900 baht - less than US$30. More expensive than local Thai food, but a great deal nevertheless and so delightful. Definitely wish to go back. Warm, friendly chef, good service, great food. Such a surprise, right on the main road just a few yards south of our resort.

Food was lovely. Service excellent. Free drinking water!
The souvlaki (chicken) was delish!
Massive portions so come hungry!

Needing a break from noodles and rice, and as we're both big fans of Greek food, we picked the Greek Taverna as our venue for Christmas dinner on Ko Lanta...and we loved every bite!
It's a little more expensive that our usual budget, but it was Christmas and the menu is so impressive we went ahead and ordered a spinach pie each, and the sharing platter...so much food! So much delicious food (...plus the portions are worth the money!).
The vegetarian section of the menu is great, offering lots of choice...if we weren't penny watching we'd definitely have gone back again and again!
