Fodor's Expert Review Nam Restaurant

$$$ Langkawi Malaysian
This open-sided restaurant at Bon Ton Resort is located within an old coconut grove beside a freshwater lagoon filled with water lilies. The menu is a bit all over the place—spaghetti bolognese, hummus, and Indian food are all served here—but the kitchen staff are skillful and the setting is gorgeous. The Nyonya laksa—a prawn, chicken, and noodle spicy coconut soup—is fragrant and satisfying. For a little taste of everything, go with the Nonya Tasting Platter; presented on a tray of banana leaves with nine small dishes to sample, components include tamarind fish, beef with peanuts, and ladies' fingers in sambal filled with herbs and spices. The smaller lunch menu includes Nyonya-style fried rice, itself a small feast of chicken satay, chili prawns, beef rendang, acar (spicy pickled vegetables), and egg.
