After the recent flooding with many places under repair it looked like Armando was closed. Thankfully we decided to let curiosity get the better of us and found it not only open but very welcoming. We called in for breakfast and did an amazing menu of Thai and Swiss style food, with good coffee... good coffee was not something we... More

From the outside this place doesnt look anything special, but the menu is huge - from traditional Thai curries and stir fries to garlic bread, pasta and burgers. It’s not expensive (about 200 baht for a curry) and the food tastes great, fresh and authentic. They can make your food as spicey as you like, but a British medium is... More

We have been on ko samui for 4 nights and eaten here twice, it was so good the 1st time! The Green chicken curry was incredible, and the pad thai delicious, can't wait to go back!

We come already many times at this Restaurant, and it's still one of the best option at the Bang Por Beach. Very good service and excellent food right on the Beach. The two chefs in the kitchen (twin-sisters) know what they do. Since 4 Years already very constant quality... thank you, we will be back again

This place is owned and run by a Swiss guy and his Thai wife(?). The food was delicious and the place was one of the cleaner looking places along this stretch of beach. The food was freshly cooked when you ordered it. The staff were friendly.
