My wife and I were expected by the waiter as I have made the booking. The waiter firstly introduced the restaurant to us. Interestingly, it is the owner's house and we actually dined in... More

First of all i have to say this was one of the best Dinner i ever had. The 9Gems is expensive. And i don´t mean above average. It is a really fine dining restaurant and if you choose a good wine for your dinner you fastly enter the 300 Euro range for dinner for 2. BUT it´s worth every cent!... More

Unparalleled dining experience with extraordinary panoramic view. Delicious dishes prepared with heart by Sathit Muangprom. The attention to detail in the interior design is in perfect harmony with the professionalism. Do not miss 9Gem when you are staying on Koh Samui.

We came here for my friends 30th and each ordered a starter and main. Everyone commented that their dish was AMAZING!! The service was excellent, the Pinot Gris (which we could not find anywhere in Thailand) was so smooth and delicious! They kindly served us complimentary homemade fresh bread with dips, tuna in tamarind sauce and a mango vodka sorbet... More
