My favorite new restaurant in Lanta 2019. I found this new place through a recommendation from a friend when we're talking about Khao Soi. Khao Soi, if you don't know it, is fairly unknown in the western world and comes from the northern part of Thailand.
It's a coconut curry with noodles, usually with chicken and served with crispy noodles on top, and some condiments on the side. What can I say, it's one of my absolute favorite Thai dishes.
Anyway, it's available in a few places here in Lanta (Beachcomber, Three sisters, Kwan's cookery) but my friend said The Garden had the best one he'd had here, and he was right! They, in contrast to the ones I had, serve the chicken Chiang Mai style tender on the bone. Sublime.
I also went back, and upon her recommendation tried the Indian Tikka Chicken Masala with Narn bread. I was a bit skeptical I must say, but she explained she'd been to India to learn to cook Indian and that she'd made great effort to procure the right spices. Needless to say, that dish was also excellent, easily the best Indian I've had on the island.
The owner is super nice, who used to run a cooking school, goes the extra mile and it really shows. Super recommended!
Tip: I think we might get 20% off if you say you come from KoHub
