We never ate at Simple Life, we just went in most nights for drinks. The staff were very sweet and attentive. Advertised closing time is 11pm, but most nights they would close earlier. The staff would always come over and ask if we wanted a last drink before they closed up. The White Russians... read more

The staff would always come over and ask if we wanted a last drink before they closed up. The White Russians and daiquiri's are recommended here!

The food is OK, not the best but reasonably priced. The pizzas are nice. The staff are not so helpful and make a few mistake with our orders. A huge con is the flies. There are no traps and the just sit everywhere.

This restaurant was attached to the Simple Life Hotel in which i stayed in Koh Tao for a week. The staff here were super friendly and fast service. The food wasn't exactly gourmet, but there was a good choice and it tasted great. They had special deals throughout the week e.g. all you can eat pizza for 199Baht. The cocktails... More

We stayed at the Simple Life resort and we ate here almost every night of our stay; the one night we didn't was because it was full up! The food here is incredible and has so much variety, from Thai, English, Italian, curries etc! They have an all you can eat pizza night as well. So reasonably priced as well.... More

Food was good and the kitchen opened at 06:30 so you can always grab some food before you go diving and order to take away.

The food is more for western tastes, as there is pizza, fish and chips, etc. as there is less detail to local food. The food tasted ok, and maybe a little over priced for the quality of taste as it did not wow myself. Our particular server was not really in a good mood, not very welcoming compared to the... More

Their "All-You-Can-Eat Pizza" on M-W-F nights is a rip-off. They bring "random" slices of pizza to your table one at a time. You have no choice in what kind of pizza you are to receive, plus you wait forever for them to bring you a slice. Also, I ordered a bottle of Carlsberg beer and it was warm......not a good... More

Tom Yum Goong is very fresh, with very good shrimps, squids and tomatoes. Salad is above average as well. After the meal, it is just 10 minutes walk to the beach where you can enjoy the sunshine or take a taxi boat to Nam Yuan island.

Absolute bargain at 200baht! The pizza was very random so if you are picky with food, don't bother. I however, welcomed the tuna or spinach and bacon delights. The pizzas were always hot, the waters literally brought them straight from the oven! It wasn't a self serve which has its pros and cons... The pros were that I didn't need... More
