This was such an unexpected find! This was recommended by our resort and we had no idea what to expect. The restaurant is located at the top of a hill (I was concerned that our taxi wouldn't make it!) and once you get up to the top, it takes your breath away. We went right at 6 so we could... More

If you enjoy the art of dinning you will agree that this is a world class experience in gastronomy! Owners Peter and Lek have brought together a fusion of lighting, music, architecture, and service to create an environment for you to enjoy their creative selection of dishes. Don't miss the Crying Tiger appetizer and / or any of their Risotto... More

We learnt about it through an internet site that states that it's one of the best places in town. Although the view is awesome and the staff is well-trained, the food is not that good and it is really not worth the price. We paid 2500 Baht per person for an appetizer and a main course. We were really disappointed... More

This was one of the few disappointment of our trip in Koh Samui. The place is very nice, with a very nice view and quite good service. However, the food is not THAT good and is VERY expensive. Approximately 2500 baht if you want a starter and a main dish which should be enough. If you want to add a... More

Booked the place for NY and were super excited to be the for the celebrations. The set menu was very nice and plentiful but this is where it all ended! The traditional Thai show was nice but think it was cut short. The DJ couldn't get his equipment to work and when he finally managed to get it working, he... More

While the host was gracious and the view great, the food was a great let down. Especially the gnocchi. The cocktails were poorly made. Lastly, the place was empty! Saving grace was the manager / host who was polite and apologetic

9 Gems is a well advertised restaurant and bar but is little of the beaten path, you could not walk there just only by car, taxi or motorbike 9 (a steep climb to get there) The staff are very helpful and friendly like most places in Thailand and the view is quite nice. Outdoor seating is comfotable and the mix... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a superb dinner experience at 9Gems last night. We were impressed with the venue which was located on top of a steep hill with an amazing view. We were given a tour around the venue followed by signature drinks at the sky bar overlooking Chaweng lake. we were then seated by a small table in... More

My wife and I had dinner at 9Gems the night before our wedding and it was outstanding. The service was impeccable and the food was great. The menu is a little pricey, especially for Thailand, but well worth it if you want a unique dining experience. The risotto and beef curry are both incredible. We ate here twice during our... More

We were 2 Norwegian couples visiting 9Gems 24.07.2013. Quite surprised about the rather remote location and "industrial" looking entrance via the ground floor parking. But what a restaurant - stylish with contemporary decoration and furnitures. The food was top Michellin star in presentation and of high quality. My wife had duck breast traditional French style and it was a little... More
