“The Table Koh Lanta”
Review of The Table

The Table
Ranked #3 of 408 Restaurants in Ko Lanta
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Please note: Pre-bookings only! (Fridays excluded) The Table is a restaurant with a slightly different concept as we have only One Table. This means that you reserve one, or a few chairs. The rest of the chairs will quite possibly be booked by other people, and we will all dine together. We have no menu. The Chef will cook based on the best catch from the local markets. The result will be a surprise for all of us! Dinner starts at 19.30. Pre-bookings only and you will not leave hungry.

What an amazing and fun experience ! Love the the concept of sharing a table, meeting new people and the food is out of this world !! Thanks to all the people I met.

Just great

Very good experience, visited with my wife and we both really enjoyed the night. The food was really good, all courses. Also the selection of beer, wine and other drinks was good. But the main thing was the consept of sharing table with few strangers. We had people from three countries and it was nice way to meet new people and spend the evening. So definitely recommending this to everyone visiting Ko Lanta. Just come with open mind and ready to chat with others to get most out of the evening. Thank you for hosting us!

Thank you Mikko,

Similar to another recent review, you're pointing out the vital part of the concept that the guests themselves bring: their personalities and openness to share a dinner with other travelers. We believe dining together is a great ice breaker and our guests prove that every night!

So thank you for letting us create the back-drop for your social and cullinary experience at The Table.

Just the concept and how this restaurant is located is worthy a detour for anyone interested in genuine foodie culture. We arrived without knowing much about what to expect but still had high expectations. It had been recommended to us as a place that serves the “most interesting Thai cuisine in that part of Thailand”, and a couple of days before arrival we heard how a named Hollywood superstar had let his crew grind the manager of this restaurant for three days in an attempt to get a spot on a busy weekend. It’s a small
place hidden away on the hillside. The Table only offers 14 seats. As we came we were received to a friendly atmosphere at a table with people of different ages and nationalities. And with a blind menu of serious Thai home cooking being served it took us through a dinner containing new friends, some great insights about Thai brews and a feeling of experiencing something unique. It took a while for us to summarize our experience of this place, it’s hard to do it justice. But if I would give anyone a list of the best restaurants of the world, this would be among the top three. Even if “World class” is a well worn judgement in all sorts of reviews, this restaurant actually lives up to it.

Wow... How do one respond to that level of praise? We are proud and grateful to have shared our Table with you and your lovely girlfriend. And if it is not too much to ask, please let us know the other two restaurants on your global top list - we could use a good meal on our day off! ;-)

Until next time.

We had a international table with people from all over the west. The place has a very good atmosphere and the host and his wife (the brilliant cook) are very friendly and relaxed people. The food was unique and very tasty. I would say it was non-traditional deconstructed Thai food. They had a selection of interesting beers and wine. You don't need to worry wether there will be enough food - it most definitely will. The experience is more like a well planned family dinner - except you don't know any of the other guests in advance. The price is a bit steep compared to other thai restaurants in the area, but we found that the price was more than worth it - especially when you keep in mind that you will be served three dishes.

Nice Swedish/Thai couple who's launched an alternative dinner experience: a surprise daily menu based on market finds and the Thai cook's inspiration. It was interesting and good. Sharing the meals with other guests is a good trigger for discussions, and there is a lot to learn from the hosts.
Why not 5 or 4 stars? Our core objective (and the performance we paid for) was the meal: altough her passion is evident, and the experiments interesting, the taste was not particuarly special to us. So it's the combination of taste and value that brings it down, despite the fact that we had a very enjoyable evening overall, which we do not in any way regret and even recommend as a different experience on Lanta.

Thank you for your kind review Pascal. It was a true pleasure having you both here.

As you explain every day at The Table is a new day where the food is created based on our best catches from the local food markets along with our love of cooking. We are glad you enjoyed it, and hope that next time the flavors of the day will be even more to your liking.

Happy travels and welcome back whenever on Lanta.
