Funky Fish Bar & Restaurant = SOLID
North end of Klong Dao Beach next to Lanta Sand Resort & Spa. The Funky Fish has an exceptional chef from Indonesia that cooks Indian food better than most Indians. Solid Thai and original fusion dishes as well but it won't break the bank. Red curry is fantastic = chicken/beef/duck/seafood. Tikka Masala is best I have tasted in Thailand and comes with rice or naan bread. Pizzas are super thin crust cooked in a real pizza oven. The fish dishes are specialties and supposedly the best on the island according to the German owner who stays onsite in high season. Kitchen is kept tidy and everything is done fresh upon ordering. Lots of tables and chairs on varying levels with nice lights so it's easy to find on the beach at night. Beers are about 70 baht for small Tigers, Singhas, a little more for Heineken a little less for Chang. Service is attentive and background music is always chilled. 10-night Lanta stay October 2010, we ate here every other night. Owner says it's packed in season and they go through 200 cases of beers every night. Favorites are Tikka Masssala, Red Curry and an awesome grilled shrimp appetizer served on skewers. The menu pictures accurately represent what you will get. Next door they also own Funky Fish Massage. "Li" just started Oct 2010 for the high season. Ask for her and you won't be disappointed. She studied in Bangkok and has worked in the business for years. She has a gift for massage and will treat you right. Very different than the "beach ladies" who sell massages but are not qualified. I did a 90 minute massage every day with her before heading out for the evening.
