“Best meal of the vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We came here after reading some reviews for restaurants in Chaweng, and we were not disappointed.
This was the best restaurant we had been to during the entire vacation. The food was well priced and delicious, and the staff is very friendly.

“Best Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

We ate at Phensiri twice and also did a cooking class during our stay at Samui.
The food is amazing quality, using fresh ingredients. It's a really good price too. My husband said the yellow curry is the best he has ever eaten.
The cooking class was great. We visited the local food market which was interesting. All of the staff helped us in the kitchen and we're so friendly.
Highly recommend this place for yum food in a quaint setting.

“excellent food, nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Very nice atmophere with cute tables and chairs. The food was excellent and somehow special. After having dinner there, we took part in a cooking class. First we went to a market to get to know lots about domestic spices, fruit and vegetables and afterwards we prepared a three-course meal. We were only two participants which was really great in order to fulfill our personal wishes. The owner speak English and German and were really helpful and kind and gave us lots of good advises for cooking Thai food. They wrote down all recipes for us, so we could take something home. A really nice place to go in Chaweng!!

“outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

extraordinary delicious and high qulity! The best Thai-Curry (nuty curry) I've ever had. I never got such tender chicken somewhere else iin Thailand or abroad. In all the dishes you feel passion and love of the person behind (Khun Neng) to prepare authentic Thai food. But even Khun Nengs italian pasta means an alternative in case you need a break from Asian food. I really regret that I didn't arrange a Thai Cooking Class in Phensiri. Next time I will!
