Top Eateries in Langkawi
Posh, Mid-Priced and Cheap

Don't worry about finding a good place to eat in Langkawi. There're plenty of them! Luxurious restaurants. Posh eateries. Mid-priced cafes. Affordable coffee shops. Cheap street stalls. Budget beach bars. You choose.

In Kuah town, you can find many food stalls selling cheap & delicious food in front of the City Bayview Hotel. The streets behind the Sime Langkawi Duty Free Complex nearby houses inexpensive Chinese coffee shops, serving local dishes such as Chicken Rice and Char Koay Teow.

There are lots of restaurants at Pantai Cenang that serve all kinds of traditional local cuisine. A popular place for good Chinese and western food at reasonable cost is the Hot Wok Cafe. For Malay and western fare, try the Restoran Pantai at the northern end, a more pricy eatery but with fine ambience. In between, there are The Backofen, a German restaurant and The Champor-Champor, a garden restaurant serving western and Asian cuisine.

Some of the restaurants may look a bit grubby inside with plastic tables and chairs but these restaurants are the places you should go to taste a really delicious meal at an incredibly cheap price. If you want to treat yourself to a really posh meal you can always book in to the 5-stars hotels and really splash out.

Langkawi is a beautiful place and a savory food paradise too. Yummy. Delicious. Irresistible. Don't leave this island without tasting some of the local delights accompanied by a good cup of teh tarik at a street stall. Here are some of the top eateries in Langkawi.
