The owners are really nice and friendly, we ate here our first day on koh samui and we liked it so much that we visited it almost every day. We traveled thailand for 3 weeks and it is for sure one of the best local food we have eaten during our travels. You get the best for your money and... More

We found imchai whilst driving round Koh Samui Its a great little place and the food was lovely. We found it a little odd that dishes were brought out one at a time but clearly this was as they were cooked meaning they were very fresh. All dishes were very tasty with consideration taken for my wife not really wanting... More

The food here is local and absolutely delicious. And most plates cost only around 60-120 baht. Can't beat that!

The food authentic, friendly host, and really good prices. The only thing I'd say is don't expect your food to come out in the correct order, and if you can live with that you will be fine. Our main came out before our starter but that didn't phase us. Also they forgot one portion of rice but that might have... More

Authentic and rustic Thai restaurant with great service. Always a good sign to see the restaurant busy with locals. Food was outstanding - the best Thai food we have eaten in lamai - green Thai curry was very spicy but not overpowering and the chicken with basil was delicious. Four plates and two large beers cost us around £12!!!! Amazing... More

Local was all we want and not disappointed. A decent small restaurant serving authentic thai food. Low price but food was delicious. An old lady served us who looked to be the owner. Friendly attitude that she would make sure every customer is happy. It is just off the street and do remind to bear with a bit of traffic... More

This is one of the best restaurants to go to for thai food if you are around Lamai. Food and drinks are served at very reasonable prices.

We ate here lunch. I ordered sweet and sour chicken that I find very tasty and better than same dish in another thai restaurant before. Waitress was very friendly and I liked the athmosphere although the restaurant is located on the main road which is quite busy. Prices are low. The food was about 80-100 bahts plus steamed riced (maybe... More
