We stopped at this restaurant on our way back to Chaweng. You need to pay attention that the restaurant is placed on the other side of the street as it appears on the map! We parked our car just in front of the restaurant and had dinner while our infant was sleeping with the window open in the back child... More

We had dinner/lunch in here several times. Pad Thai is tremendous! And the lady who runs it is just wonderful! Struggled not to give her a big cuddle when we left! Excellent!

This is a great little spot and family owned too. The owner was very pleasant and ensured the food we ordered was vegetarian. She checked in during our meal to make sure everything was ok. The building is nothing fancy but it adds to the overall experience. I highly recommend it- and you can't beat the price.

Affordable thai food, with twist of local taste. Possible to order using english and variety are plentiful if you are looking for thai food.

I saw Imchai listed on here and with all the rave reviews I figured it would be worth the 1.7km walk from our hotel. The walk back was needed after all the amazing food we ate! Ordered: Seafood Fried Rice Glass Noodles with Prawns Mixed Vegetables Green Curry with Chicken I also had a chance to talk with the friendly... More

The food here was so authentic, and by far the best Thai food of the whole trip. The lady that works there was so friendly and grateful every time we came - we loved it so much we ended up going there every day after discovering it!

This was our first meal in Koh Samui and it left a lasting impression. The waitress (she may be the owner, I'm not sure, we didn't see any other staff) was very kind, welcoming and friendly but not in a fake way. The food is very cheap and the quality is excellent. I had the most amazing seafood dish- noodles... More
