Mint Kitchen has built up a reputation as serving the 'best' traditional Thai dishes on Koh Tao. Located a short walk from Sairee Beach (just up the road from Monsson Gym), Mint Kitchen is surrounded by beautiful flowers. Come and meet P'Mia, the chef and owner, and one of the friendliest people on the island!

Delicious and convenient!

We were diving with Rocktopus Dive School which is next to Mint Kitchen, and ate there almost every day during our stay. The staff is super nice, they woke up early to make sure we had breakfast before our early dives. And the food was DELICIOUS! The chicken fried rice and the crispy chicken with... read more

The food is not as marvelous as one might think with so many positive comments in tripadvisor...instead of nice and good food, i found a dirty, unfriendly place with food that was similar to a lot of other restaurants in the island and not as cheap as many others (price is around 80 bat per dish+ rice or other side...

As we saw many positive comments we went to try this restaurant. The only explanation i find for so many good comments is because its the only place you can eat if you are making the diving course at Roctopus, and wouldnt be surprise if the restautrant belonged to them as the share the same caban in the midle of...

Food The BEST food I had during my stay on Koh Tao. Mint Kitchen serves simple, but delicious Thai dishes. The portions are asian-sized, so if you're really hungry, you might have to order a starter (or go for two mains!). They have yummy curries, thai-style salads, noodle soups and more. You can choose between vegetarian or different kinds of... More

Tastey food at very good prices. The ambience is nothing special but the food makes up for it. We ate here a few times and the curries were our favourite. Although it said on the menu that the curries are spicy they are not too spicy at all so don't be concerned (and if you want it very hot then... More

Not the best ambiance but don't let appearances for you! Anything off the popular page is delicious. The Massaman curry is insanely good. Prices are inexpensive compare to most places in Sairee. About 70-90bht. Also has free wifi and is next to rockopus diving.

The place does not look very inviting at first but the quality of the food is excellent! The green curry is just delicious!

Great value for money! The portion sizes are huge and it all tastes great! Little walk up the street from the main 7-11 in sairee main road, but well worth it. Rustic great tasting home cooking at excellent prices. Would highly recommend any dish from here.

Over our four day stay we ate a lot of times here because it was next to our hotel/dive school. But we kept coming back because it was good. The food is cheap by island standards and it's all pretty tasty, especially the stuff on the 'popular dishes' menu. Quick and pleasant service, all and all it's a very good... More

I really liked their Tom Yum- it was delicious. Salads and burgers not the best but still tasty. Very calm and nice atmosphere.
