Had a really lovely meal here, very chilled out vibe, family friendly.. Just like more of Samui used to be! Service with a genuine Thai smile without the tourist weariness you see in the eyes of staff in many other restaurants.. Kids delighted with the sesame chicken dish. Takes a little while as everything freshly cooked but was worth waiting... More

We went to Shambala after seeing the reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. Staff was super friendly, cost was very affordable but most of all the food was fantastic. Highly recommend if you want a simple evening and a great local spot.

The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. I had the duck curry and mango smoothie. The ingredients were super fresh and this restaurant does not use MSG. There were a couple of mosquitoes kicking around, but the lady had bug spray at every table for people to use. I stopped here for a quick snack and was pleasantly... More

Currently in Koh Samui and have already visited this restaurant four times! Each meal has been cooked to perfection! Great curries and starters cooked by a great chef who takes the time to discuss the dishes with you. I would recommend the prawn curry served in a coconut - very delicate dish. The Shambala curry is delicious. The 'no name'... More

We were here for dinner and had such a great time. Service and food are great. Besides, the little bamboo restaurant has a lot of charm, which is complete with all the attention and kindness you get from the owner and waiters.
