This restaurant has a great selection of food from Thai to Western. Our meals were fresh, well prepared and well presented. Great atmosphere and nice location on the south of the island. The only disappointing thing was the service. This may have been due to the language barrier so I'd suggest to them, having at least one person around that... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal at FAI - the in-house restaurant at Elements Boutique & Spa resort. Fusion menu with emphasis on fresh fish and vegetable. Service was friendly without being overpowering. Good range of New World wines at reasonable prices. We enjoyed the cocktails especially good value during the happy (2) hr period !

Serves good selection of breakfast. Can order multiple times until you are satisfied! Western choices are better than local Thai dishes though.

Located on the side road to Tesco's rear car park in Koh Samui Thailand. We went with 10 friends and had a great night. The atmosphere was open, airy and clean with helpful friendly staff who tried their best to provide good service as many meals ordered at same time. The quality of the food however is the best feature... More

Service was poor with one older male waiter ignoring us most of the time. English was a barrier and I found it nearly impossible to make a booking over the phone. There was a cat walking around like it owned the restaurant even jumping on tables where the cutlery was. The food however I cannot fault. The chef is obviously... More

We were celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary. I always have dreamed of having a beachfront candlelight dinner. Thanks Fai Restaurant for making my dream come true. The food prepared by Chef Miroslav Stycinskij were superb and yummy. The table was very nicely decorated with roses petals, white roses and candles. Absolutely perfect dinner ^_^

Eat the best Fusion food in the south of Samui and go along on Mironas's market and cooking class. Very informal ad friendly.

Had the best lunch and 2 x dinners at this restaurant. The food was very fresh and well presented. In Thailand you pay for what you get - a bit pricey but we'll worth the spend if you want quality tasty food. We'll worth the visit & don't forget to check the specials board for daily specials.

I stayed at the resort where this restaurant is based. Their breakfast is probably the best ive experienced in Aisa. And their dinner was also of very high quality. This is not a place ot be rushed and though not very busy the food took 20-25 minutes to serve, but it was well worth the wait. The steak is costly... More

This restaurat has excellent food and pretty good service(unlike a lot of the island).But finding it is very difficult(based in Elemens) and if we hadn't discovered it quite by chance we would have missed a treat. This could expain why there were only 4 tables on the night. I personally loved my monkfish which was cooked to perfection and presented... More
