A great restaurant with lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. But the best thing of all is the steak!! For steaks of good quality like these you would have to pay a fortune in the UK, they simply melted in your mouth.

My two kids and I had our first dinner here on our one week stay in Ko Samui. It was a short walk from our hotel which was a bonus. The kids took one look at the food sizzling away on the street front grill and said, "Mom we are eating here!" The service was good and the owner paid... More

The food here tastes very good. Very good quality steak here also. If you ever visit the shack, the shack ribs are a must try. BBQ Ribs come with homemade BBQ sauce which really enhances the taste of the ribs to a whole new level. Sometimes, on there specials menu, they will have beef stroganoff which includes onions, pickles, mushrooms... More

One of the best restaurants you can eat at on Samui. Steaks are cooked perfectly and the burgers are amazing. If someone is looking for a nice meal, this is one of my top recommendations.

Thanks for visiting The Shack and very happy you enjoyed your meal. Our burgers are gathering quite a bit of attention as they are home-made on premise from our top quality cuts of tenderloin, striploin and ribeye. As such, we offer a limited number each night so best to get there early! We hope to see you again soon and... More

Tonight we had dinner at The Shack. We have been here before on previous visits, tonight I was disappointed. I ordered the special burger (Chilli cheese burger) and my partner ordered the steak. We had garlic bread as an entree which was lovely. Whilst my partner said her steak "was ok", I was less happy with my burger. The chips... More

Thank you for coming to The Shack and sorry you had a disappointing experience. We take great pride in the quality of our food and the burgers are one of our most popular items as we grind all of our meat on premise ourselves. I don't think we have ever had a complaint of bone or gristle in the meat,... More

After a while in Thailand you realise that really good meat and steaks are hard to find. We spend at least 1 month every year in Samui, and we are returning guests in this restaurant. Lots of times you end up disappointed when ordering meat in restaurants in Thailand. But, not at the Shack! They always delivers high quality meat.This... More

We found ourselves in the fisherman's village last Friday, and we both fancied a steak. We found the shack cooking good meat on coals near the restaurant front and decided to give it a shot. We ordered oysters to start, I ordered rib eye steak, wife ordered rump, and we had a bottle of malbec. The steaks were absolutely fantastic,... More
