We always go to The Shack at least once when were are in Samui and we were not disappointed at all. We had a sirloin steak which was grilled to perfection. The mash and the blue cheese sauce were delicious. The restaurant is very well run and the service is quick and effective with a smile. We love it there... More

Thank you for visiting The Shack and spending time with us. We are not the least expensive but I truly believe you get what you pay for, and are comparable with restaurants serving the same imported, high quality beef. In fact, given our food cost, I would say we are fairly reasonable. I hope you enjoyed your stay on Koh... More

We went to The Shack and had a wonderful meal. Wagyu steaks at a fraction of the price you would pay in the UK plus ribs to die for... what's not to like!!! Very popular so if you are not here early you may need to book...

Very happy you enjoyed your meal and thank you for sharing your experience! Our Wagyu beef is imported and very high quality, and we agree, much less expensive than back home for what you are getting.

My friend had the wagu steak and he said it was worth every penny which was quiet a few ! I had a normal steak and the children were happy having a night off from Thai food. A very small restaurant so if we really wanted to go best to book.

Being an avid meat lover I had to try this spot after seeing great reviews. I was not disappointed. I had the 250g sirloin, mushroom sauce with chips and coleslaw. Had my meat done medium-rare and that's exactly what I got, which was great as usually I'd get it medium to well-done at other places. We saw the chef cut... More

We ordered the Wagyu burgers, which were incredibly tasty and one of the best burgers we've had. However, the menu steak prices are very steep for Thailand, and would even be considered expensive back in the UK, so that would discourage us from returning given there's so much good food for a quarter of the price over here.

Thank you Russ for visiting The Shack! Glad you enjoyed our burgers, we make them fresh on premise and offer a limited supply each night.

We visited the shack on numerous occasions in July and had an amazing experience. The food was to die for and the staff were amazing , particularly the owner. He was friendly, professional and catered to our needs. We would highly recommend visiting the shack, can't wait to return.
