“As nice a local restaurant as you can get”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

After discovering this place we became regulars for our remaining days on Koh Samui. It is run by a girl who does the serving and a boy (friend?) who does the cooking.

They seem to have a lot of regulars and you quickly feel like one if you make the effort. Their food is really good, a common favorite for me and my wife was the green curry with chicken - Tastalicious!

Prices are Thai level so no worries there. If you're looking for a small, local restaurant with a pitoresque setting, good food, nice service and often a regular or two to heighten the atmosphere, this is your place!

“Great Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Went to this resturant pretty much by accident for the first time, but came back for every meal after the first time we ate there.

Located on a small street connecting the main street of thong nai pan yai to the beach, just before the bakery.

Ate mainly Thai food which was really tasty, and very cheap, especially in comparison to other resturants on the beach. Ate Papaya Salad (50 Baht), Spring rolls which were good, BBQ Pork, various kinds of stir fry, which were all really good.

It is a thai style resturant, with no spesific decor and int on the beach.

Would Definetly Return!!
