These are the best pancakes around, and the cheapest too! My favorite is the banana with milk sugar (sweetened condensed milk). It only costs 25 baht!

Loved having these after dinner each day. Preferred these to the ones on Koh Tao and they were lovely and great fun to watch them be made too!

The best pancakes I've ever tried. Sometimes I want to go back to Koh Samui just to eat that pancakes. And I loved the pancake men, he was so friendly and polite ! The food was so cheap and he was so nice, that we always felt like paying him extra.

I have visited the pancake man several times now and his pancakes are delicious. Made within minutes and a great treat after your evening meal. He can usually be found outside the 7/11 or on 'Walking street' on a Thursday evening. It's good fun watching this master at work.

We decided to try the pancakes from Pancake Man and it was all worth it! If you ever pass by, take yourself time to try a pancake or two - you won't regret it!

Mr Pancake Man makes delicious pancakes for a cheap price (25 baht for pancake with chocolate and banana). He also offers drinking water free of charge which makes it even more enjoyable. He is located on the opposite side of Family Mart in Mae Nam. Overall it is a must visit if staying at or near Mae Nam Beach.

We did have to wait about 20 minutes due to his popularity, but it was worth the wait. He even packed up our order so we do takeaway. The pancakes,... More

Best pancakes ever are sold by the pancake man in Maenam, our party of 10 loved his pancakes, especially after a few cocktails during the Thursday night walking street!! Great to watch him work! Highly recommended.
