Not wanting to dig out our rain gear as the rain began we slipped into Samsen Villa, where I was told they had Slurpee Beers. And they sure did, they are great but it was 1:45pn and only got one before the 2pm cutoff. So, we switched to desert and coffee. I know it's odd but we had mocha coffee... More

Good food, massive menu and very popular on the bank of the Ping River. Mid range pricing, very popular. In short highly recommended.

An excellent restaurant that is very popular with the Thai community. They have an English menu, with a mix of authentic Thai and Western fusion. The staff are attentive and I know some have a bad experience here, due to the language barrier, but a bit of patience, an understanding of the barriers and cooperation will always work. It really...

We had some guests visiting and decided to take them to Samsen Villa, having had some decent meals in pretty surroundings in the past (hit and miss, but mostly hit.) However, this time was a disaster, and we won't be going back. In spite of informing the waiter that one of our guests had a severe nut allergy (and showing... More

We had a nice enough lunch at this restaurant. A bit overpriced, but you do get a lovely spot on the river to sit and relax and watch the world go by.There is a thai and western menu presented very strangely in a magazine format. Lots of western kids choices so could be a good place to go it the... More

We left it until the last minute to book a table for NYE and the manager of our hotel recommended this place. After reading a few mixed reviews we decided to order from the Asian menu... Curries were ok, nothing more, and the savoury roast duck was gristle and fat covered in a cornflour sauce. Picked fish salad was awful.... More

I am currently staying above this restaurant in the Rimping Condominium. I have eaten their food quite a few times and have been really impressed. They have a huge menu and it is all delicious and reasonably priced. The fact that they deliver upstairs is a huge bonus.

This is one of those restaurants you save for a special occasion. It has an extensive menu, and all the food ordered by our party of seven was well presented and appetizing. Their signature dishes are particularly so. Here they are also famous for their presentation of beer in frozen glass pitchers which have ice in the bottom. It makes... More

Back to July 5th, 1978, on Setsiri Road opposite to Wichaiyut Clinic (at present, Southern Wichaiyut Hospital), a small Thai restaurant is situated. At that time, it originates food from our restaurant's original recipe. Later one, it becomes model for various restaurant widely, such as Fried Pork Ribs with Salted Soya Beans Dip, Freeze Beer, Fried Catfish Spicy Salad, etc.

At the present, Samsen Villa Restaurant still serves Thai food and beverage with the same original taste. Moreover, the environment is friendly providing warmth tough to the customers. In addition of the Freeze Beer, or various popular dishes such as Curry Dish of Fresh Water Shell with Acasia and Piper Herb Fried, Twisted Cluster Bean with Prawn, Braised Goat with Chinese herbs, Royal Style Pork Satay's recipes originated by "Jae Kieng" has underlined that the Samsen Villa Restaurant plays only original Thai music, as to remain Thai touch and feel in old classic age. This is considered as our major policy.

Finally, we would like to thank all our customers who have always been giving us your kind support so far.
