The name is the game

Exactly what we hoped for at the end of our holidays: a taste of home. The chicken breast is delicious and we liked the chocolat mousse with homemade baileys for dessert. Not that many options for vegetarians. But my girlfriend liked the Birmese salad very much.

We ate here a couple of nights ago, and were hoping for some belly-filling western food as our options were running thin after 3 weeks on the island. The staff were welcoming, the atmosphere quiet and relaxed. We both had the schnitzel, served with mash and salad. It was accompanied by a garlic sauce, which was absolutely delicious! The portion...

This place is a little hidden gem! It's away from the main street up the hill a bit but definitely worth a walk up. We loved Thai food, but we wanted a break from it so we decided to stop in here. It was delicious! The food was great (European), the place itself was lovely and chilled and the owner... More

Felt like a break from Thai food and this unassuming little place hit the nail on the head. Friendly and welcoming with a small menu but good choice. Good portion sizes all round and delicious! Just wish there was dessert, didn't want to stop eating there.

What a wonderful surprise! GREAT food. VERY laid back. LOVELY owner. HUGE portions. Try the famous schnitzel and the SUPERB Burmese salad. Ushi, the owner, is candid with her advice and very easygoing. As we don't eat pork, she replaced it with chicken for the schnitzel. The drinks do need some improvement. We really enjoyed it and are definitely going... More

Taste of Home is one of my favourite restaurants on Koh Tao! Ushi (the owner) makes every dish with love!!! The food is fresh, unbelievably tasty and served in massive portions. If you're craving a home-cooked meal then this is the place for you!
