“Great food in a tin shed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

You know it is great food when you have to line up in very hot weather to get a seat and you go back again. The food is terrific Thai food at a very cheap price serviced in a basic tin sheet with very basic furniture with fans for relief from the steamy heat. We were a party of five who had three course for a cost of about $40 AUD. if there is a large line to get in the service is sometime a little slow but that is part of the charm. This is the second time we have been too the restaurant and the quality of the food has been excellent each time. If in Koh Samui for cheap good quality food and the unique charm I would recommend going, but do not judge the service by high end western restaurant.

“Price-Performance Ratio is good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Location is basic, simple and good food, low prices.
Service could be better - really slow at main time.

“Worst service ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

No idea about the food, but we went for lunch one day, and there were only 3 tables of people. We sat down, said hello to a couple of waitresses, and I guy who appeared to be a head guy. 15mins later, still no menu. My guess is that they can drum up business due to their location! Worst service, or lack of, I've ever seen.

“Gem of a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The food at Ninja Crepes was unreal! From the outside it looks like a shack but we were pleasantly suprised by the food. It had to be good with the queues there nightly. The menu is large, with plenty of option, and the staff are also very polite and friendly. There isn't many places would stop you from giving a tip, had some baht put in the tip box and was stopped adding more! Would def recommend this place.

“Just awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I had researched and this was very close walking distance to our resort, we had friends join us & I insisted we go find this place, yes very basic floor/seating but first impressions were a full restaurant is a good sign. we got there just before the crowds, 10 mins later there was a queue. Sensational food, the best fried bananas ever. Sooo cheap, with beers/wine coolers and 3 courses I think it was $25 per couple!

we went back 2 nights later alone and had to queue for 10mins, was awesome again and I tried to leave big tip but 'Mama Bear' as we called her insisted it was too much!

I was craving a last dish of fried bananas so we went back mid arvo on our last day before leaving for airport, she remembered us and insisted on giving it to us on the house...course I threw a few hundred baht on counter and left quickly, she gave us big hugs, just gorgeous. We will be back!
