Falafel - Edit

Yep. The falafel is good! I came here twice. Both times ordered the falafel wrap and they were soo tasty. They don't wrap them 'correctly' so all the juice falls out the bottom. Just re-wrap them yourself and happy days ?.

Pros: Tasty food

Lovely place, tasty food - Edit

This place has been our favourite for two years. Many vegetarian and vegan dishes, nice location in Saladan pier with a good view. Friendly service and well sized, reasonably priced portions. Falafel with pita or tortillas and humus is very good. Also thai dishes are good. And fruit shakes are tasty. Definitely worth to try ☺

Pros: Good food, Nice surrounding, Friendly service

Cons: --

love it! - Edit

although the falafel is more expensive than the Thai food because it's western, it really really nice. we literally came here everyday to eat falafel. If you're really hungry or with a friend make sure to order the falafel hummus and pita plate for 200 Baht because you get a ton more hummus than just ordering the ready made falafel.

The place is cozy and I'm glad they're open during low season. Unfortunately someone set the pin in the wrong place and I walked all the way to the bridge looking for this restaurant. I added the real location as a photo!

This place has lots of cats and they're all very clean, feel free to pet them.

The owners don't talk much and never really smile but the food is great, especially if you travelled for months without having good humus or falafel.

Pros: Great falafel, Nice location

Cons: Staff is unmotivated

Great falafel plate - Edit

The falafel plate includes ingredients for two pita falafels. I would like there to be more salad (the salad has nice vinaigrette) and the pita falafels need more moisture, some tomato sauce would be great (eg. chopped tomatoes and parsley and spices). Now I sometimes ruined my portion with ketchup because the pitas with falafel, hummus and salad tasted dry.

I once ordered a pita falafel that was too dry (needed more salad and sauce), but otherwise great.

The location is great, the restaurant in on a pier above the sea. There is a bookshop attached and they have lots of cats.

Pros: Best falafel plate in Koh Lanta, Great location

Cons: Needs more sauce

Nice place, dining over the water beyond a great little bookshop - Edit

Some good choices here, tasty falafel made a welcome change after typical Thai dishes and was served with an excellent salad. Good filling portion. Like

Great spot! - Edit

This place is right on the pier where you'll arrive if you get to Koh Lanta by boat (the best option by far btw). I ordered the falafel wrap plate which came with falafels, wraps and a yummy dill infused salad. Super delicious. I wish I'd been able to go back. There are also adorable cats here and the mango juice is delicious.

Pros: Conveniently located, Cats!

Excellent food an place - Edit

Went there for lunch today after an exhausting trip to Koh Lanta. This place was great as the atmosphere was very calm, you can sit outside on the river and enjoy the view while the yummy food is being prepared. They understand "kin jey" and English. Had an amazing vegetable & tofu stir fry for 100 baht. Staff very friendly and after the wifi didn't work they restarted it and it worked fine. There is a big book store in front as well.
