“Exceptional food & warm service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We had lunch here as it was arranged as part of our private tour of Koh Samui.

Sensational!

The flavours were full & rich. I'd consider this to be one of the top 2 Thai restaurants that we ate at (we ate at about 10).

Also, the prices are very low. From memory, most dishes were 110 Bhat.

Regarding the tour, the lunch was included as part of the overall cost.
For 2 adults & 2 kids, the lunch offered was... 2 Tom Yums (one spicy, the other not so spicy so it suited the kids), 2 green curries (ditto, one spicy & one mild), 2 chicken with cashew nuts (ditto), 2 chicken with another sauce I cannot recall at present, spring rolls, fried rice, steamed rice & fruit to finish off. We ate as much as we could & still left 1/3 behind.

“Fantastic clean Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We came across this restuarant by walking the street and trying to share the wealt, so to speak. We ended up returning a couple of times and had our last meal there. The food was outstanding and if you like spicy "Thai" food this is one of the best in the area. We had Fish, Prawns, Green Curries, Tom Yum just to name a few they were all great with plenty of flavours. The bannana pancake if you can squeeze it in, is the perfect end to a dinner or as a snack. The staff were very friendly and accomadting. They are currently completing renos and are still openand they should be completed soon.

“Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

3 meals we had here and all three were amazing. Staff are warm and friendly and food comes out really quickly. You must try the Coconut Kiss and Banana Smoothie and the Chicken Green Curry and the banana pancakes. OMG! 2 people, 2 mains and 2 deserts and 5 Cocktails later and it still only cost 500 bart or $16.00 Australian. What more can I say but you must go there.
