I have dined at the shack many times over the past 5-6 years. Whenever I am in Samui I have to dine at least once at the shack. The food standard has hardly changed.

The restaurant is at fisherman's village for the last 12 years maybe longer and I always make sure I eat at the Shack when on the island. The service and food is to a high standard, some comments on here saying the food is expensive, you’re paying for quality of the food, plenty of cheap restaurants in fisherman village to... More

We came a year ago during a 5 day visit and wished we'd discovered it the first night. Great great food and service. We'd subsequently recommended it to our friends who equally enjoyed it. A year is a long time and today at least fisherman's village seemed a littler quieter, though we noticed lots of new bars and shops/stalls. We... More

We visited after reading raving reviews and are pleased to say that they are 100% true. The owner is friendly and welcoming and the food is brilliant but make sure you go hungry as the portions are huuuge. Its great value for money and very central in Fishermans village so very easy to find.

Came here last year and food was amazing. Came back again last night and again great food. Only down side was we had to come back and hour later as full. Take that as a sign of how good it is. So would recommend booking if you want to eat at specific time. Very busy night so food took a... More

As a resident of Samui, I couldn't recommend this venue more, everything about The Shack is top drawer. Choice of magnificent starters including chicken wings with a kick, scallops that melt in your mouth. The mains are famous and have every right to be, excellent imported steaks cooked to perfection, lots of choices but as it is so food, I... More

I adore this place, the food, the atmosphere, the prices ( fair ). You definitely can't go wrong and there is something for everyone on the menu. I had the grilled lobster (to die for) and carpaccio starter (not what I expected as the meat isn't sliced as thinly as I am use to but SUPER yummy nonetheless). We were... More

So happy you had a great time at the Shack! Our menu is fairly extensive, along with our wine list, and definitely there is something for everyone, whether it's beef, seafood, lobster, king crab legs, burgers, ribs, etc. We hope to see you again and look forward to your next visit!

One of the top steak restaurants on Koh Samui, and beyond, serving high quality cuts of tenderloin, ribeye and striploin, plus seafood, specials and many appetizers. Also, the best burger on the island along with an extensive wine list. If you love top quality grilled food, this is the place.
