We were told by a couple of Brits living there that this was the best food around so we had to try it. It was indeed very good, so much so that we went twice. The wine was also very good, something you have to...careful about as some restaurants serve undrinkable stuff. Always ask to try the wine before ordering anything. The service was good and it had a well ordered feel about the place, more like a restaurant than a few tables scattered about.More

Having tried Thai food in capital cities around the world and on numerous visits to Thailand each year for nearly 20 years I haven't found anywhere as good as here for full flavours and consistency in cooking. Green and red curries are excellent but my...favourite is the tempura prawns followed by the fish in tamarind sauce with Thai herbs. Keep up the excellent work David you and your staff have the best tasting Thai food on Koh Samui.More

The eatery is a converted house with seating in several areas so lacks atmosphere. The service is slow as insufficient staff. However food was delicious and well presented. We had the mango salad starter. A massaman curry and stir fried veg with rice. All very...tasty.More

Probably it used to be a nice place, but in 2020 it’s really not anymore, check the dates of the comments in trip advisor (what we of course didn’t do..). The area is really not nice, you hear the cars all the time, it looks...like a camping restaurant. We ordered a Mojito, they didn’t have Mint. We ordered a Pina Colada instead, which was just awful, we didn’t drink it. I ordered chicken with rice, it had really no flavor, I didn’t eat it either. My boyfriend ordered duck, it was also really not tasty. Even if we wanted a desert because we were still hungry, the choice was so small (ice cream or pie) that we gave up. Just don’t stop here.More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed as the food was so good. It is run by an American and his Thai wife does the cooking. Service is good. There is wine and beer available too. The prawn dishes were particularly nice.

It is really a nice & simple restaurant. You can eat very nice and typical thai food for a reasonable price. Service is very good and the atmosphere is quiet and friendly. It does not look as a very “fancy” restaurant but it is definitely...a nice table.More

I have been many times as it is in the idyllic area of Tong Krut, the best of the island. A decent place to sit with great service and some dishes to die for. I almost always have the same as this is irresistible good!...Fried white snapper in Tamarind sauce....With Baby cabbage and som tam, and you'll certainly soon come back for more.More

We had a lovely Thai meal here on our travels. The service was very friendly and the food tasted fresh and genuine, albeit slightly pricey for the area. Nevertheless very yummy
