Visited twice on our 10 nights in the area. Delicious food, great service, even better priced. Both times we walked away very happy, only sad we didn't try this place earlier to visit more!

Affable and immensely accommodating service. Food was served really quick even when we arrived with a group of 14! Authentic Tom Yum and truly delectable Phad Thai. We would recommend this place to anyone who wishes to visit Ko Samui 😽
