i did my research before heading out to Langkawi for the weekend- wanting to check out new eateries as Alee is quite adventurous with food. came across a 'not-to-be-missed' Thai restaurant 'Barn Thai' on the island, which is supposed to be right in the middle of a mangrove swamp. The reviews were really good on yahoo travel, tripadvisor etc.
So should check out right? Being the suaku traveller- OF COURSE mah!
So since the place was quite ulu, i downloaded the map from google maps, which had the point to point directions from our hotel to the restaurant. Alee and i set off at about 5pm, completely starved, and drove for a good 20 minutes towards the north-east side of the island (we were in the south-west).
When we got to that point which google map said the restaurant should be, we found nothing but the Langkawi Eco Park. When i asked a makcik if she knew where this restaurant was, she laughed out loud saying, ' Tempat tu dah tutup!'. By this time, i was starved and totally emotional- F*** lah...closed liao!
What to do?
Drive another 15 min to Kuah Town to a seafood rest i visited before. Luckily the food was still good. Saved the day!
Bamboo Beach Restaurant
Turn left right after the Langkawi Fair Shopping Mall (from Kuah Town towards the Jetty Point),
Up the hill, and then lookout for signboards!
