A short walk from high end resort on beach we tried this out and had best local food experience here so far. Massoman with beef was rich and tender, good size portions and service with not just a smile but a sense of humour! A glass ofwine for 100 baht makes adifference from the 500 up the road. Loved everything... More

Just a short walk from loh pared beach and the santhiya resort this restaurant is a must. The food is superb, very fresh, clean and bursting with flavour. We, a family of four, all loved it. The service was very friendly and helpful. They made all our dishes vegetarian, red curry, green curry, fried rice....all delicious. It is a fraction... More

We stayed at at a nearby resort but once we discovered the wonderful food and service at helmet's restaurant we had to go back for dinner another five times. The food is very fresh, the flavours delicious with style and presentation gourmet standard. The prices are of course far lower than resort prices. The staff are lovely, attentive without being...

The owner is lovely. She really tries her best to please you. She speaks fluent German and her English is also very good. All the veg is organic and home grown. She has own fish farm too. We eat there most days. We are staying at the Santhiya but that hotel is more than twice the price of this restaurant.... More

We didn't stay here but stumbled on this place while exploring the island. The atmosphere was lovely - unforced with banana plants swaying in the light tropical breeze. There were plenty of Thais there - always a good sign. The food was fresh and delicious and, unlike many other restaurants on this most halal island there was alcohol on the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Heimat gardens. Ko Yao Yai has only a few places and most of them are expensive. Heimat Gardens is a guesthouse with 9 rooms and a restaurant. Yamalia, the owner, speaks good English and German, she is also a very good cook. The prices are not cheap but the food is fresh and good.... More

I spent 2 nights at Heimat Gardens on the island of Koh Yao Yai. I travelled by myself and had an absolutely peaceful and super relaxed time. I very much enjoyed my stay at Heimat Gardens: The hotel was close to the beach, my room was extremely clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Everyone who is looking for... More

We stayed here for just one night. The nearby beach is nice and great views but the accommodation is overpriced for what it essentially a concrete box with no views. There is an outdoor terrace with some sofas, the rooms are very spacious and clean, aircon availble. But nowhere else in Thailand did we pay 800bht for a tiled concrete... More

We particularly enjoyed the food here - the breakfasts were fantastic! We hired a scooter from the owner and enjoyed touring the island which is quiet and picturesque. The rooms, as mentioned by the previous reviewer, were clean, funcional and business like but we thought they lacked a certain amount of character. As, other than the restaurant, there wasn't a...
