We stopped in past here on a recommendation from a friend of a friend and were not disappointed. The owner was working and served us personally and came and spoke to us like old friends. The food is delicious. My husband ordered a steak, but wanted bigger than what was on the menu, which they catered to with ease.

Couldn't get over it. 8 countries this year (incl US, MEX, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, UK & Ireland and this is the best grill/food I've had. Cooked in front of you, as you like it done. Owner extremely attentive. Excellent sides, no need to order extra. Price reasonable, service unbelievable. Plate cleared (and fast) though servings are big. Recommended you... More

Our first visit to the Shack since Mick took over after the very unfortunate passing of Larry. Mick continues to do a sterling job as mine host and the food is as amazing as ever. Four meals of different steaks and tastes, all excellently presented and cooked to perfection. Perfection that is not always easy when it comes to Fillet... More

First time at the shack. First glance it's a bit scruffy and dark. But don't let that put you off. The steaks are superb. Cooked well and very juicy and tender. The sides were good too. Prices are good compared to other countries. Service was a little slow but the bottle of red helped with the time. Will be back... More

I'm very fortunate that I get to travel on a fairly regular basis. This means that I tend to dine out on a fairly regular basis, and as such have sampled a fair few hits as well as many glorious misses. I am a fairly fussy eater and am also a fairly poor creature of habit. Therefore no matter where... More

I was seriously craving a burger the other day in Ko Samui. Now, before you all write me off thinking, WHAT? All this great Thai food and this chick wants a burger?!---I agree! Sounds crazy! However--I have been in Ko Samui already for 2 1/2 weeks. I needed something different from the normal fare here yet oh so familiar to... More

This is stated to be the best steak on the island, which it may be. Unfortunately, living in London we are spoilt for choice with good steak restaurants and so unfortunately this steak was average for me - & not great value. Having said that, the staff were very nice and the place had a very good vibe to it... More

We were recommended to The Shack by friends who visit Koh Samui regularly. It didn't disappoint. Michael from Dublin is a genial host and oversees what leaves the kitchen. My husband had an excellent steak, cooked to perfection, whilst I had an American burger. The wine was fine and the staff both courteous & attentive. Definitely worth a look.

A return visit and more likely a few more to come. We love the ribs and wings here and could find no faults. Good service, great cole slaw and a pretty good vibe.
