We co-ordinated our dinner with their cocktail happy hour which was great. The restaurant is lovely and right on the beach. Very clean with a Thai feel about it. Food was great and service was excellent. Only one minor complaint, the meat was really chewy and stringy in the Massaman Curry but the taste was fabulous.

Poppies restaurant is set right by the beach overlooking the ocean. It is ideal for families or a quiet romantic evening. The menu has a choice of Thai or International food, both of which are excellent and there are good choices of fish, meat and an extensive vegetarian section. The restaurant staff are fantastic, friendly but professional. This is probably... More

We went here on our last night in Samui for dinner. There was a show with traditional dancing and music, and a nice view of the beach. I ordered the Khao Soi and was surprised to find a Northern Thailand dish on the menu. It was a very big portion (think normal American sized portion) and was delicious and just... More

Restaurant is overlooking the beautiful beach, best chicken satay I have ever had. Curries are to die for as well. Prices are not cheap, similar to Australia in a good restaurant but food is worth it.
