The food here tastes very good. Very good quality steak here also. If you ever visit the shack, the shack ribs are a must try. BBQ Ribs come with homemade BBQ sauce which really enhances the taste of the ribs to a whole new level. Sometimes, on there specials menu, they will have beef stroganoff which includes onions, pickles, mushrooms and a few other things. I went there with family yesterday night and had there Beef Stroganoff which tastes very good and the sauce was excellent. The price at this restaurant is quite high, depending on what you order but I think in my
opinion, the most expensive dishes would be either the sea scallops or the lobsters which are imported from Maine, USA. The value for what you're paying for is worth it. Scallops here are also a must try considering that they are very fresh and they cook it perfectly. I recommend ordering the scallops with pernod sauce on the menu. Service and waiters are very attentive for there customers. The biggest eye catcher is the person grilling the meat in front of the restaurant. Overall, A must try if you want great quality BBQ ribs and great tasting steaks which they import from New Zealand.

Thank you for visiting with us Aaron and very happy you enjoyed your experience!

As you recommend, our steaks are top quality and imported from the U.S. and Australia, and our ribs are as good as you are going to find anywhere, very popular. As we offer a very broad menu, come back more than once and try our different starters and mains, there is always something for everyone.

We wish you a great stay on Koh Samui and hope to see you again soon!

Thanks for visiting The Shack and very happy you enjoyed your meal.

Our burgers are gathering quite a bit of attention as they are home-made on premise from our top quality cuts of tenderloin, striploin and ribeye. As such, we offer a limited number each night so best to get there early!

We hope to see you again soon and we wish you safe travels.

Simply the best steak house on the island by a country mile !

I have been coming to Koh Samui for many years with family & friends. My nephew still talks about the Shack as his all time favourite place and he is 11 years old and visited 3 years ago !

On this trip I was with 4 mates from Australia so all pretty used to having good steak & wine.

We ordered a few different types of steaks, all cooked differently from "blue" through to "medium well". The steaks were all cooked perfectly, the service was spot on and we washed it down with a nice bottle if Aussie red.

Mick the manager was very friendly, gave us plenty of recommendations not only for the menu but where to go on the island.

All in all, if you are visiting Koh Samui and love a decent steak you can't go wrong visiting the Shack

PS - they do accept credit cards which was really helpful for me but pass on the 3% the local banks charge them. So if this is the type of thing which upsets you then grab some cash before you go

Thanks for visiting with us again and most happy you and your friends enjoyed your meal!

We think we have the top steaks on the island and glad you feel the same way. Our service is friendly, the food top quality and our wine list is quite varied. Our grill master has been with us many years and knows how to grill any steak just right.

We thank you for coming back to visit us and we hope to see you again soon!
