  • Built in the form of a traditional village house, The Gulai House features alfresco dining sections that overlook the verdant rainforest, candle-lit alcoves, organza drapes, and low tables with comfortable cushions placed on hand-woven mats. Set within the exclusive The Datai Langkawi, the eatery offers authentic Malay and Indian dishes such as rending daging (RM80), ikan bakar berulam (RM83), and sup ketam berserai (RM45). For dessert, we highly recommend the Cendol Pulut (RM28), a traditional Malay dessert that consists of shaved ice, coconut milk, palm sugar, sticky rice, and red kidney beans. The Gulai House also hosts cultural shows every night between 20:00 and 21:00, performed by local dancers dressed in vibrant indigenous costumes. Read More...

    La Sal at Casa Del Mar Pantai Cenang
    La Sal at Casa Del Mar

    Located within Pantai Cenang’s Casa del Mar Resort, La Sal is a fine-dining restaurant where you will find local food inspired by Mediterranean flavours and the local catch. We recommend the tangy, spicy barbecued tandoori chicken skewers paired with buttery naan bread. This hearty dish is certainly comforting and makes a visit here worthwhile. What’s more, the restaurant also deserves high praise for its attentive service. Although they are not too knowledgeable about wine selections, the staff more than make up for it with their efficient service.

    Ikan-Ikan at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi Tanjung Rhu
    Ikan-Ikan at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi

    Ikan-Ikan at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi offers a wide array of Thai, Chinese and Malay-style seafood cuisine. Built in the style of a traditional Malaysian village house, the open-air teakwood deck is the best place to enjoy your meal, thanks to its spectacular view of the ocean and garden. Due to its locale, expect to splurge for a meal at Ikan-Ikan but portions served here are very generous. We love the kangkung tumis belacan (RM42), gulai ketam kuala muda (RM140), and ikan-ikan kukus dua musim (RM138), all of which are best paired with steamed rice (RM9).
