the chef & owner of the restaurant is mostly working on her own. if there are 3 to 4 tables waiting for food, its gonna take a while. Neverthelss the taste of the food is really authentic Thai.

We had walked past this restaurant at least 3 times before we Googled 'best places to eat in Maenum'. Glad we did - Sue cooks the most fantastic, authentic Thai food. It was so good, we sent our 3 children to her cooking class! The restaurant is small (on main road, very near the cross roads in Maenum) and only... More

We've been here several times before in the last few years and were happy to go again, the three of us the only customers at the time we went there. It's a tiny place on the ring road not far from the Mae Nam traffic lights, well worth seeking out if you want to see what good freshly made Thai... More

Absolutely amazing authentic thai food and amazing hospitality from Sue. If you're scared of thai food you shouldn't be! Sue will cater to your various chilli heat requirements and the food will be so mouth-watering you'll come back for more ! An absolute MUST on your trip to Samui!

Traditional Thai restaurant in Koh Samui. The chef suggests food combinations (i.e. Pad Seafood and Tom Yum Goong) to make your taste experience different. The restaurant provides nice chilled white wine (Chardonnay of Australia) as well. The whole dinner experience is quite comfortable although the chef has strong confidence with the foods and you will feel a little pressure when... More

I visited the place with couple of my friends and we really liked the food, we got served. I had cashews with rice and it was the best, I had in Thailand yet. My mates had green curry and you better eat it like she tells you to do it. Otherwise you will get in Trouble!

Really tasty Thai food (with no MSG) cooked to the heat that you ask for - with added birds-eye chillies if you like it really spicy. The food is full of flavour and the owner is always available for a chat in English.

The owner is very sweet and proud of her cooking skills. She speaks very good english and explains everything about the meal you order. Good prices too :)

No doubt this place got some nice food and the fact it is quiet and relaxing music makes it good for family and couple dinner. Also wine is very good, however the owner's tone makes it very uncomfortable to just sit and chilling out after we finish our food
