“Don't be put off by the looks... the food is AMAZING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Ok, granted this restaurant is nothing to look at... HOWEVER... after being recommended by several reviews, we thought we would give it a try.
Amazing, quick service, not the mention THE BEST thai food we have ever had.
Sweet and sour is great, as is the fried rice.
We ordered 8 mains and 4 cokes, it came to a total of $19AUD !!! INSANE! If only we could get food this amazing in Australia, let alone at such a great price.
This is a MUST eat in koh samui!

“Great little place for a feed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

We got referred to this place by a manager of a pub down the road. He said that if u want genuine cheap and good Thai food go here... He was correct in saying it was good food...
There were 6 of us and the total bill with drinks came to 200 baht per person. Most dishes 50 - 100 baht.. Definitely be back here.

“Fantastic food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We ate at Green Bird more than anywhere else during our recent holiday in Samui. The whole deep fried fish with lemongrass, the rice paper rolls, Chicken Pad Gra Pow were highlights. Green Bird catered for our young kids, who loved the tempura fish with fries and the non-spicy Chicken Pad Gra Pow. The staff are efficient and friendly, and....the beer was extra cold! Love this place.

“Great food, value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The resturant has reviews from previous customers on the wall, make sure you read it before you order food. Must try - green curry, spring rolls, beef in oyster sauce!

“The most authentic/genuine Thai in chaweng aside from the street carts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This cafe nestled in to the market area in chaweng was a great find! Very reasonably priced and great tasting food without a touristy feel. So pleased we found it. Definitely visit!
