Great place - cheap food

This restaurant was one of our favourites whilst staying here and we came back at least four times for lunch or dinner. Prices are reasonable (beer is 70bt - cafe del sol opposite charges 130bt for some reason?!) and the food is delicious. The curries are very nice and filling - the tofu red... read more

This thai food restaurant in mae Haad right near the pier and the beach is a great find. The menu is huge and has all the thai favourites you could want and more. In the evening they also play movies, so you can sit and chill watching a movie after dinner and having a few drinks. Great value for money... More

Excellent thai food and very cheap. We have taken one dinner and one breakfast at this restaurant. The dinner (thai food) was delicious. The breakfast instead not at the same level. We would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant for the traditional food.

This resturant is near the pier outside our hotel. The food is delicious and very cheap. 80 bahts (£1.50ish) for Thai curry and rice that is so tasty and nicely cooked. The restaurant is clean and the staff are friendly but do not speak much English. The fruit shakes are to die for! Pay the extra 10 baht for the... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants on Koh Tao, the perfect place for a delicious shake, green curry chicken & a movie. (Although i'm sure the tv got smaller since I was there 3 years ago) 😂 Relaxed, tasty & well priced. A "must visit"

I have never felt the need to review on trip advisor but thought I might speak up so others could avoid my mistake. I went here for dinner and ordered sticky rice with a spicy pork salad. Food was ok but I'm sure that the rice was reheated and gave me three days worth of food poisioning- Ruining my diving... More

The food is okay but nothing that will make you say wow. It is one of the cheaper places to eat but for the same money you can get better food elsewhere.

Came here two years ago and loved the mu kratiem (pork with garlic). Came back again today after two years and it was the same delicious food in a lovely setting. Also had a tasty spicy papaya salad. They play movies each night in the neighbouring room which is a nice touch.

We tried mango shake here and it was so-so. So much ice, almost only ice. Shakes are not recomended. Good point is that you can sit on pillows and use free wifi.

Loved pranees food so good, everything we had was delicious and we ate here at least 10 times during our stay, if not for lunch, for dinner, cheap but that doesn't affect the quality of the food or serice, beer cheap, wine okay, traditional Thai food and western food, but thai is best! Good carbonara too.
