Very nice dinner 2 courses with sides and mid range wine ran to 4500bhat so not the cheapest dinner, bit a nice change for a hunk of red meat ... and well cooked. We asked them to pace the main course so dinner lasted over an hour ... which is a record in Thailand as you are normally in and... More

This is not a large restaurant, and it's not on the beach side of the street - so definitely no views! It was rather hot inside and the fumes from the outside cooking area occasionally wafted back inside which was not pleasant. They were busy but service was pretty quick. Our steaks were first class. Not cheap, but we are... More

Coming from a meat eating farming community, I know about beef. You don't expect this quality on a little tropical island and grilled to perfection! Rare and medium/ rare are usually over done, but not here. The sides and the service to match. Highly recommend

The Shack imports the finest cuts of meat from Australia and slathers them in a rainbow of tasty sauces from red wine to blue cheese. Booth seating and jazz over the speakers give the joint a distinctly Western vibe, though you’ll find all types of diners coming here to splurge.

My family and I recently went to Koh Samui for a family holiday. Out of the 12 days we were there we ate at this place 4 times! The food was outstanding, service was great and the atmosphere was perfect for the family. The music was not too loud and the booths were perfect for the 5 of us. It's... More

We ate here in 2011 when the guy from New York owned it. He was a real character and ran a good restaurant. We were sad to hear that he had died some time ago. The new management is not as attentive and the food is not as good. When I ordered my steak, I was quite clear how I... More

Sorry to hear you did not fully enjoy your experience at the Shack. Nobody is perfect and sometimes we don't get it right, but we always offer to fix it and prepare it the way you like. But I have to disagree with your assessment of the quality of our restaurant. The vast majority of reviews are very positive, and... More

Amazing food and best host always consistent. Recommend the Alaskan king crab legs and scallops in garlic butter with fresh bread to start.

One of the top steak restaurants on Koh Samui, and beyond, serving high quality cuts of tenderloin, ribeye and striploin, plus seafood, specials and many appetizers. Also, the best burger on the island along with an extensive wine list. If you love top quality grilled food, this is the place.
