“The best Thai food in Cheweng!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We found this lovely little restaurant/cafe from great reviews on trip advisor, we had been a bit disappointed with the food on Koh Samui up to then. The food was delicious, it was busy and very good value for money, we returned the next night and probably would have gone back if we had found it earlier. He panang curry and Pad Thai were amazing, the staff are lovely and I would recommend this place if you want authentic and tasty Thai food.

“Very, Very casual restaurant with good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Green Bird is across the street and down a shopping alley from the Chaweng Regent Beach hotel which was very convenient to us. The staff is very friendly and the food was good. We tried different dishes every night and were not disappointed. We ate here 3 nights in a row because of the tasty food and low prices.

“GREEN BIRD NEVER DISAPPOINTS!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

On my fourth visit in Thailand again I went in this restaurant 3-4 times. I really believe has the the best tom yam in pot and generally all Thai food is amAzing!!!!! I'm surprise to see few people not impressed but I believe is the exception. Yes as restaurant looking is not something but has the local touch a lot. Definitely you need to visit it and is for you to decide then if you like or no but I'm sure you will love it!!!
P.S. Other great dishes are pad Thai with chicken, spicy papaya salad and many more!

“Fair but not special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Hidden down the alleys behind stores selling t-shirts and sunglasses this is a fairly nondescript eatery offering basic Thai food and very competitive prices. The quality of food is fair but not exceptional compared to the 2 alternatives 10 paces away. On the night we visited service was very ordinary as the waiters seemed more interested in the movie playing on the overhead tv.

Go there for a quick cheap meal but don't expect a truly memorable outing.
