Great steaks but a tad pricey

Excellent steaks, one of the best I have had in Thailand. Service was good with a great selection on the menu and chalk boards. It a little pricey though for Thailand

Thank you very much for visiting The Shack and writing such a nice review. We aim to deliver on product and service and I think you saw that. Our prices are certainly not the cheapest but also certainly not the most expensive. Most of your 4 and 5 star hotels are near our price or considerably more. We simply buy... More

We always treat ourselves to dinner at the Shack when we are in Samui. The steaks are not the cheapest but they are always so tender and the burgers are literally the best we have ever eaten. Highly recommended when you want a break from thai food.

Second time we have been. Never ever had steak like it - simply sublime. So tender. The homemade coleslaw & fries on the side are wonderful. Huge meal!! Staff are all fabulous as is the owner, John.

We went on a busy Friday night and even though the place seemed pretty full, we did not have to wait for a table. Service was friendly, actually the owner himself took some time to explain the menu to us. Their steak was amazing and cooked exactly how we ordered it, also the sides were excellent.

Does what it says on the tin pretty well. Burgers and steaks were cooked just as we asked them and came with a choice of sauce and potato. My husband had the tuna, however, which was pretty tasteless as was my Tom Collins cocktail. Seemed expensive - the most expensive meal we've had in Thailand, although as the meat comes... More

Thank you for visiting The Shack and glad you enjoyed our steaks and burgers. We import our beef from the top cuts of Australia and the U.S., hence our food cost runs high. But we would not have it any other way as we feel strongly about serving top quality. Although we are not cheap, we certainly are not the... More

Had the Australian tenderloin and it was superb. Have tried many of the islands upscale/better restaurants but this is by far the best. Excellent service, great atmosphere together with the food makes this my top choice 👍

We visited twice during our Koh Samui vacation in July. We made the exact same orders on both occasions - cocktails, fillet steak with side orders (jacket potato, spinach) and lots of red wine. Service a little on the slow side the first time as they were so busy, but they told us about this before we were seated so... More

We wanted a break from Thaï food, and the Shack delivered handsomely! Delicious, juicy burgers and ribs that tasted like we were in Texas. Staff was very kind and welcoming, the atmosphere is great, and the prices are in line with the quality of the food. Would go again for sure!
