We were driving along Klong Noi beach from Rawi Warin Resort towards Pimalai Resort. There were lots of restaurants, spa's, resorts etc along the beachfront. However we noticed one restaurant (Kook Kai Restaurant) that looked very elegant and warmingly attractive. We also noticed that there are lots of people at this restaurant compared to the rest. So on our way back from Pimalai, we decided to have our dinner there.
We were in for a surprise and we ended up having our dinner there for all 3 nights. The restaurant is run by a family of four brothers and Kai is the name of the cook and thus the name Kook Kai Restaurant.
So if you happen to be in Ko Lanta Yai and need a decent place to dine & wine, Kook Kai Restaurant is the place you cannot miss. You will not regret your decision.
