Came here based on the reviews and my oh my it lived up to expectations! The food was delicious, had the Pan-nang curry which was delicious. Also had the squid which they offered to make half barbecue and half fried (on advice), would have it all fried next time in garlic and chilli. Would recommend the Morning Glory which has a slight barbecue aroma to it which is different to any other restaurant we had it in. The prices are really reasonable and the cocktails are one of the best we had on the island! The service has been amazing, you have to try the fried bananas for desert, best banana desert I have ever had! The owner was very charming and attentive. All in all an excellent night of food and margaritas.

Have been to Samui several times over the last 6 years and have not known about this gem. We got into the habit of frequenting the same old great local eateries but decided to branch out by looking on TripAdvisor. What a brilliant find - great food, great service, friendly staff who are very attentive. Went back more than once in our 10 day stay.

The staff and the food are amazing! We are so glad we came to eat here. We had the traditional Thai food and there were other options. If you are looking for a great restaurant, you need to eat at The Mother Restaurant.

Food is first class. Definitely worth a visit. We were staying at the nearby Melati beach resort and decided to pop in here and we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Very friendly staff.

Stopped by based on other TripAdvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. Despite limited reviews, they are all consistent with the experience. It doesn't look to different from the surrounding restaurants and bars but the food exceeds its peers ten fold. The host is a caring and personable chap who takes the time out to greet and talk with his customers. The staff are attentive and efficient always double checking the order so nothing is lost in translation. We found the food to be excellent for the price and ate and drank like kings for just over 1000 baht. Certainly worth a stop if looking for a huge feast of great food but at a budget price. Definitely recommend
