Wan Thai Restaurant Langkawi

Wan Thai Restaurant in Langkawi was highly recommended by friends and the world wide web, so there I was 2 days ago checking out the place. Upon reaching the restaurant, I was pretty impressed with the crowd that was already building. It was a Thai restaurant, and majority of the patrons there were families with at least 5 in a table. I like the fact they ushered us to a comfortable and strategically located table, and not give us some lousy small side table, even though it was only 2 of us.

Open daily 11.00am - 3.00pm, 6.30pm - 10.00pm

The waitress serving us were very polite and pleasant. Even though the place was packed, we were still given our due attention to order and served. I guess they're already used to big crowds, hence are effective in handling the crowd.

I really liked the open concept for the kitchen, as we are able to catch a glimpse of our food being prepared. The cooks were multiracial which reflected nicely on the overall impression of the restaurant. Let's move on to the food we ordered.

#3 Gai Phad Med Ma Muang (Chicken with cashew nuts) - RM 12
fragrant rice
#4 Fragrant rice
What can I say, I loved the taste of Thai food, especially Tomyams. We did not order many dishes as there were only 2 of us. In fact, with this 3 dishes ordered, our stomachs were bursting by the end of the meal.

#1 Tomyam Kung Pia (Seafood Tomyam) - RM 10

The tomyam tasted good with a generous amount of prawns thrown in. The soup wasn't too sour with the exact amount of spiciness we would expect from an authentic Thai Tomyam.

#2 Phal Phak Ruam Mid (Mixed Vegetables) - RM 8

Mixed vegetables, nothing much to comment there. It doesn't taste bad. We ordered this dish for the sake of having more vegetables in our meals which is good for you and me. The portion wasn't big enough as both my partner and I love vegetables.
#3 Gai Phad Med Ma Muang (Chicken with cashew nuts) - RM 12

Everytime I'm at a Thai restaurant, I usually end up with this dish. The taste of cashew nuts tossed together with some great tasting chicken is just fantastic for the taste buds. I love the fact Wan Thai was generous with the nuts. Lots of nutty action there!

Overall this is a great Thai restaurant, and should you happen to drop by Langkawi for the holidays, or just over the weekend, don't miss out visiting this restaurant. Now I understand why there's so many rave reviews out there on Wan Thai Restaurant.

 Thristhan, hi there! Thanks for dropping by my humble blog. It's not by the river. it's in the town of Kuah actually, but since Kuah is by the seaside, so I guess you can smell the sea water air.

Heading over to your blog now! XD
