Great thai food, great service!

We had a lovely dinner at The Chef. Their massaman curry is delicious! I liked the idea of open kitchen. The staff was very polite and the experience was nice overall. Not so cheap but affordable.

Fresh tasty Thai and international food, lovingly prepared by the staff at The Chef. Nice quiet spot for a relaxing meal, off the main Chaweng strip.

We visited in April. Perfect food, Perfect service, lovely staff and a great setting. Really worth walking to as it is at the quieter end. We stayed at Samui Resotel and it was very close, we went more than once as it was so great... Must visit!

We found this resturant on Valentine's day! We had been heading somewhere else but plans backfired, we didn't fancy a massive hunt for a resturant, drove past this place, it looked nice, busy but not too much so decided to give it a go! If we had read the reviews first we may not have, so I am glad we... More
