Best restaurant on the island so far! The food is so delicious! Fresh fruits and vegetables are used. Moreover the food is super cheap. Even though one can wait up to an hour for the food I give 5 stars because the food is so tasty and the chef does everything alone. All in all one can only say: visit it! And leave some tip she deserves it

It is true that the food is good and that the owner is a superhero managing to hold a full evening service alone.
But this is not enough. The food is not that good that it worth waiting literally 2 hours for food.
We arrived for dinner early enough in the evening and was thankful to get the last available table. It was our second attempt to eat there after it was full on our first attempt.
Reading the reviews here we were expecting to eat one of the best meals in Ko Phangan so we felt lucky.
The owner was completely alone that evening. (She did have help the first night we arrived and it was full). So she was taking reservations alone, cooking alone, serving alone. She had no chance to do that all in any reasonable time. No one could blame her.
We tried to order fruit shakes with our meal. She explained there is no time for her to make shakes when she is alone. So we didn't have shakes as we did in any other meal on the island.
We ordered the main course. We asked to have a special one for my wife who is allergic to soy sauce and fish sauce. I know. A problem in Thailand. But we managed to find great food anywhere with this limitation. Especially where they cook the food fresh for you as in this place. The owner who was impatient and stressed because she was alone, got quite angry at us that we are complicating her life on a busy evening. We felt uncomfortable. We gave up on asking about starters not to make her more angry.
And then we waited. And waited. 2 hours. Seeing the dishes cooked and served one by one to each of the other tables. We were the last to order and last to get our food.
We were starving. When it arrived we ate it so quickly that we did not enjoy. It was good food. But we had better. We left the place hungry. We did not have starters. We did not have deserts. It was our worse dining experience in Thailand.
I understand it was impossible for her to make every one happy. It was best if she would not accept so many people when she is all alone. It was not worth it.

The first time we tried to go here - on the recommendation of a friend - the owner sent us away as the restaurant was too busy and it's just her doing all the cooking and service. Which only made us want to come back! When we tried again it was totally worth the wait! The owner is just lovely, cooks everything herself, and the place feels like an extension of her home as a result. Go - and be pattient. It's totally worth it.

We read all the reviews and were totally ready to wait for our food. We ordered right away as we knew it would take a while. After about half an hour people who arrived before us started leaving as they didn't have food yet. Some people waited 30 minutes just to order... After our order was taken the servers never spoke to us again... I had to walk up to the kitchen to order another drink. After 2 hours our food arrived. They brought everything except our rice and cutlery which is crazy because we ordered curry which needs rice. I waited 10 minutes thinking it's coming...nope. Up to the kitchen again where I was made to feel bad for interrupting them. I had to walk over to another table I to get napkins myself. The food was OK.. probably 6/10. After that wait, the food had to be out of this world to make it worth while. Honestly if you walk by and see more than 2 tables without food, just keep walking.
