    2 weeks in Koh Lanta, this was the best Massaman I had. Really low prices, lovely service and a really chilled atmosphere. Highly recommend eating a chilling here.

    Soft Shell Crab Curry was mindblowing! Traditional Thai food has an interesting twist here - be it Pad Thai, Khao Soi or Spring Rolls. Very chilled also during the ordinary beach day. Much recommended
  • Lennart A.
    After two weeks of eating at various restaurants (many top ranked here at Foursquare) this is one of my absolute favorites. Fresh, tasty, a few unique dishes. I recommend the soft crab yellow curry.

    Padthai was amazing. Khaosoi is not authentic (was in Chiang Mai for a month)

    Don't be fooled by its modest appearance; Kwan's offers by far the finest Thai food on the island.

    Well, we tried the curry, the mackarels and green papaya salad and were delighted. Surprisingly the pad thai was a bit of a mixed bag. The margaritas from next door (Fin) were good though.

    Well, being honest, food rather okay than tasty. Big plates though. But music and atmosphere is very relaxed and smbd's smoking weed next to us.

    Very good Khao Soi even vegetarian. Ask for salt 😋. Go for Thai Spicy, medium was not spicy at all.

    Back again, two nights in a row because this place is crack! Red curry is a little too heavy on the fish sauce or shrimp paste for my taste but still really good

    Wow! This place blows it out of the water. A few times a week they make gaeng hang lay, a pork curry from the north/Myanmar. Order it! You won't be disappointed.

    Get the Khao Soi- it's the best! Really great Thai dishes here. The cooking classes are fairly cheap too!

    Chicken spring rolls for starter, best springroll ever. Chicken red curry for main course, good but please beware - they have a spicy scale from 1-5 and I choose 3 and like spicy food but Oh My!!

    Fantastic food, super friendly service. The Swiss/German Marcus runs the cookery with his wife Mrs Kwan, who along with their daughter cook nothern Thai cuisine. The theme is "Chiang Mai street food".

    Excellent value for extremely well prepared dishes from across Thailand. The Kao Soi noodles and mango sticky rice are highlights.

    Great place! We were there at 7pm and already no place (good sign). We just wait 10min to a table. Food: delicious. And they have 5 grades of spicy (One is spicy enought!)

    Best Thai place in town. Big dishes, flawless service. Fresh ingredients. Owners came from Chiang Mai, so menu also features dishes from Northern Thailand. Don't miss it! Try softshell crab.

    Fresh ingredients, super fast even when all tables full. Kwan is super nice and likes to say hi to her customers while cooking away on the woks. Get the basil fried rice with a fried egg, yum!

    Best thai food I ever had so far! The owners are the kindest people, Kwan cooks like a Goddess and it is not expensive at all! Try the Tiger Prawns, they are absolutely fantastic! Biggest ones I saw!

    Wir haben Kwans Coockery mehrere Chancen gegeben zu zeigen warum sie so gut bewertet ist. Leider hat sie immer wieder versagt.
