Koh Lanta Restaurants: Time for Lime

It’s hard to know where to begin when describing the offerings of Time For Lime. With so many culinary adventures going on at Time for Lime, this is way more than just a restaurant. With a different tempting Thai “tapas” plate rotating daily, diners can enjoy the delicious flavours and textures of marinated or caramelized kingfish, deep fried papaya salad, various curries, or possibly some mango salsa rolls. Each plate comes with three items, along with sticky rice and a devotion to allergy awareness. As the menu is set, it’s a good idea to check online what’s on offer that day, but chances are you’ll like how it sounds. Vegan and vegetarian-friendly, extras like crispy, veggie spring rolls or desserts like the brownie with lemon sorbet and peanut brittle can be added to your order.

What to drink?

There are plenty of options of what to drink at Time for Lime. Starting with a long list of fresh and tasty cocktails such as the lemongrass or chili margaritas. Both options are ideal to keep you lubricated as you gaze out over the oceanfront tables. But that’s not all – because you might have been wondering how you can learn to create some of these delicious flavors at home right? (You might have been wondering this as soon as you’ve landed in Thailand for that matter). Time For Lime happens to also be a top-notch cooking school, with enough pristine cooking stations for the whole family. Packages for singles, couples and families will have you learning how to cook up some of the tastes that make this place so popular. Couples and groups can participate in signature cocktail-making classes, and they also offer a separate wine and cocktail pairing class. The owner, Junie Kovacs, has been cooking and teaching the secrets of Thai food for over 26 years, and also recently released her first cookbook, so you know this is the real deal! As if that weren’t enough, Junie is also the mastermind behind Lanta Animal Welfare, a non-profit organization devoted to giving injured and stray animals on the island the help they need. Profits from Time For Lime go towards supporting Lanta Animal Welfare. So you’re not only going to enjoy an informative and fun cooking class, refreshing cocktail and great Thai food with a view, you’re also helping to support animals in need. Now you can see why we couldn’t recommend Time For Lime more!
