This is a small family run restaurant across from The Wharf. The menu is not as extensive as other restaurants in the area, but far more interesting. The daily specials are an excellent fusion of all Thai flavors and put together beautifully. Thoroughly enjoyable. Make sure to book!

We absolutely LOVED this restaurant, rivalled some our favourites in Melbourne! The only problem was not discovering it sooner so we couldn't go more, to try more of the amazing menu! Loved the green curry snapper, calamari cakes and duck wontons. Definitely order from the specials board. The chef is amazing and the flavours in all of the food are... More

A wonderful experience of Thai fusion fare. The place is all about the quality of the food and very friendly service. Though the space is cramped and simple, Vivian and his team more than compensate for this by meticulous attention to their customers, quite a few of whom appear regulars. Be sure to book in advance. We were lucky to... More

Had the most incredible culinary experience this evening. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly and the food is out of this world! I'd definitely recommend the red duck dumplings and the tuna tartare! And such reasonable prices too! Book in advance because this gem is very popular - and for good reason!

This is probably one of the most quirky, places we have been to for a long time. You would probably never decide to go in if you just stumbled across it - on a busy main road, crazy name and really small. But you can see from the reviews the food is simply so different, so creative and so clever.... More

Although the cafe is small and the patio is a little noisy, the service and food is sooooo great! I will recommend it to others if they come to visit Samui.

Great little restaurant which doesn't look much from the road and it is right in a busy main road but we sat inside the restaurant and were not disturbed by the noise from the road. However the staff are fantastically attentive and give excellent advice about what the best quantity to order is etc. Food was excellent. We had duck... More

We had heard such great things about this little cafe so we were expecting something quite exciting. The surroundings are nothing special and it's very close to the road so noisy in the outside area especially...we thought then that the food would no doubt make up for this. Actually the food was only average and the portions pretty small, so... More

Been there dozens of time but the food never ceases to amaze me.. Vivian is a great host as always and he is all the time taking care of his guests and what is served in their plates; So many good things to chose from but i often order the same 3-4 dishes such as green curry pie, duck dumplings,...
