Description: Our Restaurant opened its doors in Chaweng in late December 2011. We are now at over 8 years of operations. Our key feature is original Thai cuisine at its best only using fresh high quality ingredients without MSG and additives. When we started we were a rare thing in Chaweng where most restaurants targeting tourists were offering international fare more than Thai. Our lasting success has generated some offsprings… Tom Yum Kung, Shrimps with Tamarind sauce as well as our curries are definitely our customers favourites. During this new challenging situation of COVID-19 we will do takeaways with discounted prices and deliveries trough the websites Hangover Samui and Foodpanda

I joined tripadvisor just so that I could write this review. Having found Khaw Glong on this website we decided to go because it was close to our hotel on chaweng beach and also had decent reviews too.

We first ordered green and red curries to share and decided on the spiciest option (I think 3?) and without doubt these were the best dishes we have tasted in our 7 week trip across south-east asia (singapore, kl, penang, bangkok, cambodia, vietnam, hong kong). The curries had the right amount of spice - absolute perfection.

Their starters were also full of flavour especially the pork salad. On top of all of this the service was great, and their senior staff were always around, even serving food themselves!

If you are in Koh Samui, you HAVE to, without doubt, try the spicy curry at this place. It's so good we went back the next day! I now judge every curry I have on Khaw Glong's.

We had dinner a few nights ago at Khaw Glong, and the food & service was great!

Really good flavours, although we may have asked for a little too spicy on one of the dishes but still so delicious! (You can request whether you want your meals mild or spicy.)

We went to the restaurant on the recommendation from other Trip Advisor reviews.

The staff were really attentive and wanted to make sure we were happy with our meals. Lovely thai service!

The food at this small convenient restaurant is outstanding. Really beautiful tastes authentic Thai served in a small place with no fuss but a real effort at a warm ambience. Well priced ie v affordable. Owner is a charming lady.
Just around the corner from the bank on Charweng Road. ---so don't be put off finding it .Taxis are so reasonable on Ko Samui not far from anywhere.

After reading the previous tripadvisor reviews, we set out on a search to find this gem in Chaweng. Affordable, delicious, fantastic food and service to match. Because the restaurant is only small, we needed to wait for a table, however we're able to enjoy a beer overlooking the hustle and bustle of the Main Street while waiting for our table. The food was presented well and with a smile, and we loved the ability to select the spicy-ness of the fish (although our tongues regretted picking 'thai' as the level of spice!). Must visit if you're in Koh Samui.
