Was walking by and my mom stopped to check out the menu. I already had a bad feeling because the name wasn't very authentic. There were a few people in the place - all white older people (another red flag). No chili or sauce on the table either - just salt and pepper. Weird but hey lets give it a... More

Spent 2 nights here as so impressed with the service and very close to our hotel. Attentive staff and vast menu both Thai and European. Tempura prawns were huge and delicious-decorated with pretty cut vegetables. Nice touch. I enjoyed the Red curry, could have done with a few more chillies but very tasty. Lovely setting even though near main road... More

Waited over 40minutes for what was just fish and steamed rice. The food was ok (not amazing) but ok. Though can't imagine what took so long. The owner walked around the restaurant during this time and a one point said (yours is coming in a minute), which was in fact about another 15minutes. No apology offered, so assume this is... More

I tried this restaurant after seeing it had plenty of customers the previous night. It is across the road (and about100 metres along) from the Ibis Hotel Bo Phut. Overall, the food was good, my massaman curry was better than that though, it was possibly the best I have had while living in Thailand. The service was good without being... More

This restaurant is opposite Samui Palm Beach Resort, Bo Phutf and provides both a Thai and Western food. The shrimp starter is superb. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Prices are reasonable and much better value than the resorts. Very enjoyable.
