Spectacularly great Thai food

All the other reviews were right... This place is great. Fresh, tasty ingredients and beautiful vegetables. Ask to make anything vegetarian. Everyone speaks English very well. Higher prices than the restaurants on the main street, but well worth it. Don't skip past this one!

Typical menu, no surprises, very old fashioned Thai. Well cooked food but not worth the money. Service immaculate. Salads good, but over sweet balance not right. All needed a good hit of chilli even though waitress said very spicy. Duck curry... A bit mean. Been there, done that . Probably won't go back

Having read the reviews we were expecting my more. There was a terrible smell of cooking fat coming From the kitchen which was below the side of the restaurant where we were sitting. The food was also so disapointing all deep fried and tasted of nothing but oil. Nothing authentic about this food would never go back. One to miss.

I was extremely disappointed to read your review just as you were obviously disappointed with your visit. Spirit House primarily specializes in Thai salads,curries,fish and beef dishes and in fact very few of our dishes are fried in oil unlike most of the Thai dishes in many restaurants and we do this for a reason. However unfortunately for you and... More

This place is so pretty. Can't believe it is a street back from all the chaos that is Chaweng. We were basically the only ones in the restaurant and it therefore lacked a bit of atmosphere or I guess it was romantic depending on how you look at it! We ordered the banana flower salad and coconut battered prawns for... More

I thank you for choosing Spirit House for your dining and I appreciate and take on board your valued comments and sincerely apologize that your experience wasn't as you had hoped. Unfortunately Thai staff are generally conservative where a diner requests spicy as many visitors base degrees of spiciness from their experience back home which is quite different to Thailand....

Tucked away, but a beautiful building and worth seeking out. Excellent food in a real Thai restaurant.

Lovely setting, very romantic and quiet. The food was excellent (try the seafood noodle balls!), but the wine list needs improving. The service was polite and up to Thai standards. Overall: 9/10

Beautiful setting overlooking the lily pond. We were fortunate to arrive early off peak on a Sunday evening and had the best table. Beef Massaman Curry was fantastic and make with fillet steak. Requested hot and was exactly what we would have expected and just right. The Chu Chee Prawn Curry was the other dish and made with fresh Tiger... More

Sometimes what starts wrong will never get better. This is the case in this restaurant that from the beginning I had a bad experience. From waiters who do not know what the drinks are, to bartender who does not know how to prepare a drink, etc. I got to a point that I never did in my life: decided to... More

With further investigation, as I said I would do, which involved interviewing all my staff I discovered some interesting facts. Yes, our trainee staff, age being sixteen, was not fully aware of the ingredients in the Spirit House special and therefore sought assistance from her fellow staff.This can be a common problem through out Thailand sometimes due to a lack...

The setting of this restaurant is amazing, busy times you need to book, food is great but very hot and spicy, the medium was even to burny so if you don't like hot food make sure you ask for medium heat!

Hi

I am coming to Koh Samui for my 50th Birthday this year and I am looking for a restaurant to host my Birthday Dinner on Monday 27th July for 16 people.

Could you host this for me? I thought the upstairs private dining may be suitable where the Thai Dancing is?

We would like to order share plates/banquet of your best Thai dishes. Could you give me some sort of idea on pricing for 16 people?

Can we order jugs of beer and jugs of cocktails as I believe wine is really expensive in Thailand?

Thank you,

Marie Shimmins
