After reading the reviews we were excited to try this place but unfortunately it didn’t quite live up to expectations. We had a range of dishes from the Mango salad to curry and noodles and it was ok but for what we paid we have...had better.More

The food is very good, definitely authentic Thai and the spice scale they offer is very helpful for tourists. It's pretty pricey compared to other restaurants on Samui, and the food no better than at most others. If you're after superb Thai food at fair...prices we highly recommend Khun Yak in Cheongmon.More

The small hidden gem is a must-try in Koh Samui, severing authentic Thai cuisine! We had the Larb Moo which packed a whole lot of flavour punch! One of the best we have tried. The Red Curry with chicken was the right amount of coconut...& spicy. Overall an excellent meal & would highly recommend a stop here!More

We came here for 2 out of 3 nights during our stay in Koh Samui! The food here is SO GOOD! Really cannot fault it, so delicious & favoursome. It stops orders at 9.30pm and as expected is very popular so make sure you come...early or book in advance! So worth it.More

We researched trip advisor before leaving the hotel and found this little gem just off the busy Chaweng Road. Waited for a table down stairs as up stairs was a little sterile. We ordered pad Thai and green curry. Amazing taste and texture. So worth...the research. A must to check out on holiday in Koh Samui.More

We discovered this amazing restaurant placed in central Samui and it was very surprising how lovely it was. The restaurant serves many local food delights, made with a balanced use of spices and the finest natural raw materials which gives freshness and excellence to the...dishes. Last but not least the owner and the staff are the kindest people ever! Really suggested Cristina & MichelaMore

It was good but not as great as trip advisor led me to believe. Food was good but not enough spice despite us ordering it “Thai spicy.” Location was good to kick off heading to Chaewang for some bar hopping. Service was great as well....There was a bit of a wait but we didn’t mind.More

The food was the best meal my family and I have had since we have been in Thailand. It was fresh, delicious, authentic and the portion size was perfect. Service was absolutely lovely - our servers checked if we were okay/needed anything regularly and were...super friendly and accommodating. They also gave us some lovely coconut ice cream on the house because there was a slight delay in the food coming out which we didn’t even notice! Absolutely recommend this place for delicious classic and authentic Thai cuisine and amazing service.More

Excellent Thai restaurant on a side street just before the strip in Chaweng. Be prepared to wait for a table as it's very popular, but it's worth it. Food and service was excellent, and they even provided some complimentary coconut ice cream for having to...wait for a table! Highly recommended.More
