This was the best meal we had whilst on holiday in Koh Samui. We were staying nearby which made getting to it relatively easy. However, even if I was staying further away, I'd have still travelled to eat here. Food was excellent and the service was friendly. We ended up spending about 2 hours in the restaurant and every dish... More

We were staying at the Conrad but wanted to find a local inexpensive restaurant and that is just what we found! From the fruity drinks that we started out with to the main course we were not disappointed! We had 5 nights to explore the island and try different places and this was one we would repeat!

I came here in June of 2012 so this review is a little over due, but I feel this restaurant is worth sharing. When I travel, I usually don't eat at the same restaurant more than once, but I made an exception for Nuch's Green Ta'lay here at Koh Samui. Their fried fish with sour and sweet chili sauce...my mouth... More

We made a booking and dined here for dinner on Christmas Day, 2013. After reading numerous feedback, this was definitely a place not to be missed. One would have to allow considerable time (roughly 25-30mins) to travel here as it is almost in the middle of nowhere. One taxi we took did not know of its location! We were warmly... More

Dined here on the recommendation of a fellow guest at our Hotel. We arrived along with several others and not long after the place was full-always a good sign. Ordered Thai food which was excellent and reasonably priced. Service was reasonable considering the Restaurant was busy. The Restaurant is owned by an American.

The Green Ta'lay is a fantastic restaurant. On both occasions that we have visited in the last week the food was delicious and the service from Taan was charming. Ignore Madmannoman, he is clearly, as his name implies, mad. One tip - leave a little room for the homemade coconut ice cream, even if you have to share a scoop.... More

This beautiful restaurant does not disappoint. We were greeted warmly on arrival and service was very friendly and prompt the whole evening. The raw prawns in Thai dressing was the best dish I've had in Thailand so far! Definitely a dish to come back for. The curries were fragrant and full of flavour. The prices were very reasonable for such... More

After reading soo much about the restaurant, traveling so far to get to it, I was completely disappointed. I am sure some of the street shops in Chaweng market have better food. Sorry about this review but that's the truth.

During our stay at the Conrad we asked if there were any close decent restaurants where we could experience home cooked Thai food. This was recommended to us so we booked in and looked forward to the experience. On arrival we were about to be greeted by a waitress/server/supervisor but they she started having a conversation with our driver for... More
