A Wonderful and Healthy Family Run Resturant!

In order to situate this review I need to explain that Big Mountain is approximately 200 meters from the apartment where my wife Pat and I have been staying, here in Koh Phangan, for the past two months. Big Mountain was also conveniently on the way home after our morning yoga class at AGAMA yoga... read more

My partner and I went there for dinner and it took several minutes before they noticed we wanted the menu....now I know we should have left. We ordered a glass noodle(made of soy)salad with coriander,tofu and vegetables.They served rice noodles with celery and onions.Then it was supposed to be a Thai curry but we got a cheap curry powder instead....

Also one of the restaurants we visited four years ago ad still existing. I would say it is in nice location and they have a good chef but a little bit too small portions. Staff was always friendly and helpful. I reccommend.

Food is slightly more varied and slightly higher quality than the normal standard. Spring rolls are deep fried from frozen unfortunately. Nice curries and noodle soups. Staff are outright hostile to customers.

Lovely location sat on a hill, restaurant built into the trees made out of bamboo. The staff are really friendly. Great fruit shakes and cocktail list. Good selection of meat, seafood and vegetarian food :) visited the restaurant a few times while on the island for a week

I had dinner at Big Mountain with my wife yesterday. Beef with basil and chili tasted funny and resulted in a bad belly. Fruit shakes were good. Prawns were not cleaned properly. I would avoid this place at all costs. The atmosphere is nice but there are way better options to eat.

I couldn't choose between 3 and 4 to rate this restaurant. From one hand, they are different what makes this place unique. Since we stayed right next to the restaurant for a couple of weeks we had food there at least 2 times. First time we came for lunch, had a burger, massaman curry and some garlic bread with cheese....
