We love 'Will Wait'! We have been coming to Ko Samui for the last four years and we always make sure we eat here on our trips. The Thai food is always fantastic and the staff are always polite. It is very reasonably priced. We recommend having the Morning Glory add Chilli and garlic as well as the Panang Curry.... More

We found this great little restaurant on our second last day and wish we had found it earlier. Authentic Thai was on offer as well as more 'western' food if you need a break from the spice. While the food wasn't flash, it was yummy and there was plenty of it. If you can find this place, get a spot... More

We enjoyed a great American Breakfast. Unrushed and relaxed. Been here 3 times in 5days. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Can't comment on the other meals.

We were in a real rush with a bus to catch and sat down for a quick bite to eat. The menu was extensive but we prefer to eat the main Thai foods rather than copies of western food. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. We had chicken sate to start followed by a beef with basil leaves and... More

They made a mistake with my friend's order as well, she ordered chicken and they brought her prawn, and insisted that that was what she ordered... More

I wish I had read reviews on this place before going because it seems that I am not the only person to have experienced horrendous food poisoning after eating their food. You only have to scroll through the last two months of reviews and I have found two other people that have been violently sick after eating their food (ironically... More

We stopped here for a light supper - ordered a selection of Thai food (that all 4 of us could share). Food was great, service was great, and because the restaurant is literally just across the road from the Central Festival shopping centre, which had open air music at night, a great place to sit and listen.

After a 3 week holiday in Koh Samui and Bangkok, I can honestly say that this was the worst meal we had. We're still trying to figure out whether the cook Westernised our "Thai" meals or what went wrong, as all of the dishes we ordered were completely free of any spices. The worst offending dish was probably my Tom... More

If you are looking for good value good at a good central venue then you can't go past Will Wait Restaurant, directly opposite Central Festival shopping centre. The range of good food will cater for everyones taste. Even the normally spicy thai food is mild but can be spiced up if required. It's s restaurant you can go wrong choosing.... More
