Amazing food, best we've had so far in Thailand. Get the green curry pie or the duck dumplings! I had the pad Thai which was huge. Great value for money.

Ate here last night with friends, what a great little cafe! Had the duck red curry dumplings, green curry pie and soft shell crab with green pepper. The food is outstanding, wish we had time to go back and try the whole menu. Highly recommended, make sure you book ahead. Thanks Vivian.

We were fortunate enough to eat lunch and then dinner a few days later at Cafe 69. We loved the food!! Such a unique way to present Thai flavors! While everything we tried was delicious, we especially loved the rolled papaya salad with soft shell crab, tuna tartar, green curry pie, and Korean chicken. The food was flavorful and fresh... More

Food was excellent, the best we had during our stay. I would highly recommend booking as we were very lucky to sneak a table when we turned up. The staff are very hospitable and friendly. You must go here if you are in Samui.

We over ordered as there were so many options that sounded delicious. It was all amazing! Staff and service was fantastic. The food was awesome! Great flavours and excellent choice/variety. We shared three starters and then had the green chicken curry and king prawns and rice for mains. We were completely stuffed! The other excellent aspect is the cocktail menu.... More

Me and two buddies found this restaurant through trip advisor and decided to go. We had no reservations and there was a wait. Luckily we got sat half an hour later. Napa, the owner, was awesome, he is the heart of the store. The food was so good we went back the next night. After two visits, we had tried... More

Found by walking by as restuarant very busy and first night in Koh Samui. Excellent food in contemporary Thai style but with very reasonable prices. Friendly staff and delicious food (and cocktails) made it best night we have had in Thailand so far. We will be returning to sample more.

Thank Stephen T
