Great food

Great tasting food, nice atmosphere. Higher price than I expected. Most expensive drinks we've had all the times we have visited Samui. Most main courses cost around 1000 and up. If u are on a tight budget, don't stop here. ☺

Thanks for visiting The Shack and glad you enjoyed the food and atmosphere! Our food costs do run high, particularly the beef as we buy very high quality and it reflects in our pricing. We are not inexpensive but we also have quite a few mains well below 1,000 baht, from burgers, ribs, chicken, combo platters, seafood, etc. We also... More

Saw this one on TripAdvisor and thought we would give it ago. It really was mediocre and touristy. The food was over priced and not great. The servers were bored and the bloke in charge just seems to think he is fabulous. There is so much choice in Fisherman's Village. Believe me you can get much better 100 yards in... More

Another must when in Samui! The steaks here are DIVINE! Perfectly cooked and seasoned, you don't need any sauce with this steak. The sides are very generous and super yummy too. I had the 200g Australian tenderloin with a side of fries (also comes with coleslaw). Juicy steak and crispy fries, I enjoyed every last bite! The deep chocolate cake... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by my father in law and my wife as they have been to Samui many times before and this was my first time. I was told that the steaks are the best and they were absolutely right. I ordered the 300g Australian tenderloin which was cooked to perfection. We had also ordered what we thought... More

The service and the place were great. The food was very nice and simple but the prices were quite high for what it was. We ended up paying as much as in a 5 stars hotel for two main dishes, two glasses of wine and one water bottle. But still service and food are good so worth a try :)

Thank you for visiting the Shack and glad you enjoyed our service and food :-). High quality beef comes at a price and our food costs run quite high, far more than most restaurants. We do our best to balance quality and price, and although we are not the cheapest we certainly are not the most expensive. Having been to... More

I was walking in the fisherman's village on the friday night and found this place. The place is neatly done and wat attracted me to the restaurant was the smell of the barbeque. Went inside and ordered a rib eye, along with chicken wings and a burger. Everything was great but the steak was heaven!! Will be back soon.
