The Gulai House & The Pavilion @ The Datai Langkawi

The rustic stillness of a spacious Malaysian kampung setting at midday surrenders to a swoon-worthy romantic ambiance amid a 10-million-year-old rainforest once the sun sets, complemented by banquets of traditional Malaysian & Indian fare - sate ayam, sup ketam berserai, rendang daging, ikan goreng sos asam, sayur campur goreng, kuih ketayap & much, much more.

Perched on 30-metre-tall stilts over Langkawi's forest canopy, The Pavilion is all about Thai temptations in a beguiling tropical setting. The greatest hits from The Land of Smiles are represented - papaya salad, prawn spring rolls, pandan chicken, deep-fried fish with pickled young mangoes, stir-fried king prawns with chilli & sweet basil & green curry chicken, concluding with the uplifting tab tim of water chestnut dumplings, shredded jackfruit & coconut syrup. Thanks to The Datai Langkawi for having us.

  1. Oh my!!! The menu on a dried leaf. Bravo! Bravo!!! Such creativity deserves praise. These are two different food outlets at one location, the Datai? I would enjoy both, I'm sure but I think the first one has a clear edge over the other, food, decor and all.

    1. Suituapui: heh, yeah, there are lots of extra touches in the experience here that make it quite memorable and almost magical. yep, the gulai house and the pavilion are two separate restaurants ... both are nice, but if i had to choose, i think i'd pick the gulai house too! :)

  2. Both place looks good, but I think I prefer The Gulai House, hehehe.

    1. CK: heheh, i guess it depends on whether you're looking for malaysian or thai food :D
