Genuine Thai hospitality and cooking. A no frills restaurant that serves great home cooked Thai food at great prices. Very friendly owners and excellent service. Good cocktails and cheap beer and wine. This is the sort of restaurant that everyone should visit to get the true experience of Thai hospitality and cooking.

What a little gem. We stumbled across this place in Choeng Mon this month during our stay in Ko Samui. Was definitely the best food we found in Ko Samui and was on par with the best we found in Bangkok! Kai and Oh were so accommodating and friendly and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed...
