Listen, would have scored a 5 star rating but it's a little rough around the edges and I'm sure not its everyone's taste. Ok here's the go, been to Malaysia lots of times, KL, Penang, Cochin, Kota Kinabalu but first time to Langkawi. So staying at the Westin and I'll post a review on that later. Today we did a drive around the island to get ones bearings and the lay of the land. Being the typical Aussie always on the look out for a cheap beer and good conversation.
Anyway we was put on to the Pier by a local expat Brit so we wandered over there,look not easy to find but by gee was it worth it. Look its dark and a bit dingy but staff are great, beer is cheap as, but the food is to die for. Owned by a Thai lady the Thai food is just sensational and I'd recommend it to anyone, the company full of European, British & Australian expats all getting on a bit so if your under 40 might not be your seen but if you love Thai food you'll want to try it. Just fab

Ordered the pepper crab and found that it not thoroughly cooked. The sambal sotong lacks the oomph as it not well marinated into the squid. Lettuces was a little salty and did waited more than half and hour for the dishes to arrived. Was disappointed that the crab dish came out first instead of the others. Improvement needed at this restaurant

We went to this restaurant in the search to have some food other than rice. Something western e.g. Burgers and chips. I know you go on holiday to sample things new and exiting which we had done for the first 6 day. The food good and on par with food in the UK.

Authentic Korean food is freshly served.
Had the Korean BBQ. Service was good. But the flavours were not. After Reading such positive reviews, I was surprised that the beef was not very well marinated. It didn't help that it was also over-cooked and tough. In contrast, every one of the little side dishes was too salty: fish cake, omelete, some kind of vege pancake. Even the gochujang sauce. I know the gochujang is usually quite salty - but the other flavours also need to balance the salt too. That didn't happen here. You might be asking: why didn't I just mix the beef (lacking in marinade) with the gochujang and kim chi, or side dishes, to combine the flavours? I did. I had to. But it was like flavours clashing and fighting - rather than working together like an orchestra. This kind of beautiful harmony was what I had experienced at Daorae Korean in Melaka last week. And after Daorae, this experience really let me down.

Had steamed chyepoh fish, fried squid, oyster omelette, sambal ladyfingers, sambal lala (clams), prawns in black and sesame chicken.
Total cost MYR 170. Only a few tables occupied.
The lala were small, ladyfingers seemed overgrown and the squids not fresh. Other than that, service was good.

Celebrated for its enchanting over-water dining concept, the restaurant’s menu of Asian influenced haute cuisine and reinterpretations of regional recipes are complemented by an extensive beverage menu of inventive cocktails and classic tipples.
Had my wedding dinner with my family in Kayuputi and everything was excellent! The food presentation are beautiful, the Local Grouper fish I had was perfectly cooked and the taste was fantastic. Were afraid that the portion might not be satisfying but in fact it was perfectly fulfilling 3-course set menu for the whole family. Not to forget that the most impressive one is the service that is very informative to explain about the food and not being intrusive. Definitely will come back.

We were walking around Langkawi Fair Mall on a rainy afternoon and felt like having a snack.
Ordered rice cakes (Korean name starting with To....) and beancurd skin rice sushi thingy...they were delicious!
Coupled with the sincere service of staff, this place is worth a visit.
Note: subsequently due to the good experience there, I found it had another branch called Haroo+ and decided to go there for dinner another night..

Seriously good home-cooked food, from homemade fresh pasta, bread, pizza to pastry and cakes. We are proud to say Arts Cafe is famous for it's quality with reasonable pricing. Good collection of art pieces, friendly service, good location with many parking. Fresh juices, wines and beers. Arts Cafe is one of the oldest cafe in Kuah established since 2013.
We visited for dinner on our first night in Langkawi. They weren’t too busy. We tried the beef rendang and a salmon dish – both were very nice, and we especially liked the accompanying roti canai. They serve beer, but not other alcoholic drinks. Service was reasonably efficient. Our meal came to a very reasonable RM 100, including a couple of drinks. A pleasant meal on the whole, although I’m not sure if the high ranking on TA (currently #11) is justified.

Only reason why I tried several times to get Weng Fung listed for review on tripadvisor is because the brother restaurant, yes that's two brothers from the Ong family as owners, Wonderland, has the same food, has the crowd but you dine in plastic chair and swirling fans. Here you dine in comfort of air conditioning. The quality of seafood is just as fresh. While they take Reservations, one is not needed because they are not on the list of recommended restaurants in Kuah town. Yet there are really no reason to. In fact, we dined there twice and once at Wonderland and the price per person for steamed fish two new style, crabs two ways, Assam prawns, oyster omelette and Kang Kong ( morning glory veg) came to 28-40 MYR which is 10 USD or less, depending on whether you have beers. We particularly liked the Assam prawns just spicy enough yet juicy and finger licking good. It comes in 3 sizes, SML. At these prices, there is no reason to order anything but the big size.
So the next time we go to Langkawi, we will check Weng Fung out again to see if social justice is served to have this hidden gem shine a little more with your support. I'm by the way a well travelled person with zero economic interest in this or any other restaurant.
