I haven't eaten here for a while & everything is as good as I remember. Their shrimp cakes & masamam are a couple of my favorite dishes. The ambience is good, the service is good & the prices are reasonable. This place does not disappoint.

After being disappointed with restaurants that do not understand your order because they do not speak other than Thai language, this place had many who spoke English. Orders were therefore no obstacle, and the food was unparalleled both in terms of presentation and taste. We will come again!

Having been to Samsen Villa for many years with both work and private dining, I can honestly say that I have never been let down with the food or the service. Their extensive menu is backed up with a good selection of soft drinks and beverages. Enjoy.

It was a goodbye dinner date with friends and that is how I discovered Samsen. Had been staying near Samsen Villa for almost 3 months and initially thought that it was some sort of private residence or some riverside resort. After looking online and from some other people realised that it is a restaurant. However, life had been quite busy... More

Not wanting to dig out our rain gear as the rain began we slipped into Samsen Villa, where I was told they had Slurpee Beers. And they sure did, they are great but it was 1:45pn and only got one before the 2pm cutoff. So, we switched to desert and coffee. I know it's odd but we had mocha coffee... More

An excellent restaurant that is very popular with the Thai community. They have an English menu, with a mix of authentic Thai and Western fusion. The staff are attentive and I know some have a bad experience here, due to the language barrier, but a bit of patience, an understanding of the barriers and cooperation will always work. It really...

Back to July 5th, 1978, on Setsiri Road opposite to Wichaiyut Clinic (at present, Southern Wichaiyut Hospital), a small Thai restaurant is situated. At that time, it originates food from our restaurant's original recipe. Later one, it becomes model for various restaurant widely, such as Fried Pork Ribs with Salted Soya Beans Dip, Freeze Beer, Fried Catfish Spicy Salad, etc.

At the present, Samsen Villa Restaurant still serves Thai food and beverage with the same original taste. Moreover, the environment is friendly providing warmth tough to the customers. In addition of the Freeze Beer, or various popular dishes such as Curry Dish of Fresh Water Shell with Acasia and Piper Herb Fried, Twisted Cluster Bean with Prawn, Braised Goat with Chinese herbs, Royal Style Pork Satay's recipes originated by "Jae Kieng" has underlined that the Samsen Villa Restaurant plays only original Thai music, as to remain Thai touch and feel in old classic age. This is considered as our major policy.

Finally, we would like to thank all our customers who have always been giving us your kind support so far.
