Having read that the restaurant is hard to find we arranged a taxi through our hotel. We asked to be collected in two hours but only needed one! The service as very fast and efficient. We ordered the tasting menu for two. The dishes arrived three at a time with the grand finale of curry crab served singly and last.... More

We are staying in a hotel outside of Lamai and the food is "good" but tailored to a western taste so we were keen to try Kob Thai having read the reviews on Trip Advisor. As mentioned by others the location is not prime and the environment quite basic however it's still pleasant and after sunset quite romantic under the... More

Came here on our first night in Koh Samui, and it was excellent. I had a great green curry, but my boyfriend's shark steak was even better

We (a family of 4) ate there on 23 June having read the reviews here on tripadvisor. What a great find! Kob Thai is about 600m inland from the beach, but worth the trip. The setting (kitsch mixed with tropical jungle) in the individual dining cabanas was fantastic. The staff were great - helpful, patient and advisory. As for the... More

We were skeptical at first when we walked in and we were the only ones there at 7pm, and the restaurant seemed a little odd located on a dark road, but that's samui for you. After looking at the menu and ordering the Shrimp Tempura, their version of a Pad See Eew and Sweet & Sour Chicken, we were blown... More

Down-to-earth prices and a wide selection of Thai dishes (almost impossible to find elsewhere on the island). The portions are very generous so you should rather come hungry ! The food is delicious and the atmosphere very relaxing. A very nice spot in Lamai indeed, and a definitely much better place than the dozens of western-style tasteless and pricy places... More

Getting here takes some doing since it is away from the main town. Once here, you are treated to an expanse on which there are little bamboo huts with tables in them. Like most other reviews, we tried the tasting menu for two along with a host of other little things. The menu is rather expansive so if you want... More
