“WOW!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

I can not even begin to tell you how good these pancakes are. This is an experience you must discover for yourself. Truly the best on Samui. He has turned making pancakes into an art form. Fantastic to watch. In Mae nam pass through the traffic lights heading towards Nathon, and Mr Pancake man is about 1km past the lights on the left side of the road opposite a family mart.

“A Thai must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Siamese crepes. Try one as soon as you see a street cart that says "PANCAKE". Banana + chocolate are the standard fare, very delicious and very cheap.

“It never fail to tempt us going back for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2009

Mr Khun Lek has been making pancakes since the age of 15 and has done so for 35 years. I have tried several pancakes around in Thailand and none can compare to his.

It's a one man stall yet he will try his best to serve water to customers as they waited for their pancake. It's really difficult to manage so many things at the same time, making the pancakre, clear the tables , serve water.

Luckily, many of his regular customers ordered for take away. His stall is a tiny shop which can contains probably around 10 persons at most.

He is a very humble man and takes great pride in making his pancake. He keeps his stall clean and tidy. The stall is open from 4pm to 12 midnight.

It's really
