Having read all the nice reviews of this place on TA, it was once of the first places we went to eat out during our recent visit to Koh Samui.
We arrived around 7 PM and were seated immediately. However, the place filled up quickly and there was a waiting queue by the time we left.
The ambiance of the place is nothing to write about- a large metal hanger, white concrete painted walls, concrete floors and old plastic chairs and tables. The kitchen is open and you can see what is going on inside while you wait for your food to arrive. They have a large menu with pictorial representation of each item, so you know what you are ordering. The price per plate is low but quantity is also quite less. So its not really that cheap as it appears initially!
The person who took our order seemed to be fluent in English, which was not a surprise as this place is very popular with the tourists.
I ordered the pork ribs for starters but it turned out to be quite a joke as the ribs were really tiny. Then I ordered the Butter garlic prawns which I had to first select and get weighed. But at 175 Baht per 100 gms they were not cheap! However, they were well prepared. For the main dish we had Chicken Penang Curry with steamed rice, which was decent. For drinks I had a Pineapple shake while my wife had coconut water.
The best dish in my opinion was the mango in sticky rice which took some time to arrive but was worth the wait.
Our bill came to around 750 Baht but the major expense was the prawn dish.
We could have visited it again to try the other dishes if we were staying in Chaweng. But we had better places to eat closer to where we were staying, so didn't return!
