Restoran Wan Thai, Kuah Town, Pulau Langkawi

The table deco
Restoran Wan Thai, a Thai restaurant located in Kuah town is apparently very popular among the local folks and tourists in Langkawi. We only got to eat there the third time we went! Imagine that!  It could also due to the long holidays when we were there.  It was closed for Hari Raya the second night we were there, so we had our dinner at Wonderland Food Store instead. The next day we went, it was a quarter to three in the afternoon. The waitress politely rejected us explaining that they were closing at 3pm. The restaurant was brimmed with customers even it was near closing time.   
 Table setting
On our last night in Langkawi, we procastinated if it would be worthwhile to drive 20 minutes or was it 30 minutes there from Pantai Cenang to Kuah town just to have dinner.  The sky started to drizzle on our second day there and started to pour later of the day until the day we left. :(  We decided to go after much procastination and it was almost 8.30pm when we left Pantai Cenang.  The road to the town was dark and winding and I was praying silently that the car would not break down along the way.  We paid a jacked up price for the rented car and yet its condition was less than desirable.  Fortunately it somehow pulled through albeit annoying glitches here and there. Hahaha..  A lesson learnt for not booking a car in advance. Oh well...
It was slightly over 9pm when we reached there and there was already a crowd forming at the restaurant entrance.  As expected, we were asked to come back again the next day! I told the staff off politely that we would be flying back tomorrow!  She then took all the trouble trying to accomodate us and voila.. we finally got to eat there. Phew!  Thumbs up to the staff there who appeared so polite and professional.  We were ushered to the supervisor, a very elegant looking lady who spoke Thai to her staff.  She took our order and at the same time recommended their specialty dishes.  She explained that she could not open the 1st floor to customers as they were understaff at that time.  By then, they had a table for us.  Food wise, very good, authentic Thai dishes, the seafood otak-otak in particular (no idea what it is called in Thai) that came with a whole coconut filled with prawns, fish fillets and squids.  Highly recommended though I must advise those who are eager to dine there, try to go there at least one hour before their closing time or chances of getting rejected is super high!  
The busy restaurant.. the empty table in the foreground was filled up with customers (who called in for reservation beforehand) soon after this picture was taken.
Mango kerabu fish
Seafood tom yum
Rice served with a sprinkle of brown rice
Again, eggs for the boy as he can't take the spiciness of Thai food.
Prawn fritters
Seafood otak-otak...
Don't know what exactly this is called but the supervisor highly recommended this dish... something seafood otak-otak.  No regret ordering this.  In fact, it's a must have!  We even scooped the coconut flesh out.. tasted so heavenly having absorbed all the goodness of the dish!
The bill of food and 3 drinks came to slightly over RM90.  We will surely pay this restaurant a visit on our next visit to Langkawi.  Food wise, very good and food presentation too, superb I must say.
