You need to walk 5 minutes from Sairee, but it's totally worth it! Awesome food, kind staff, cheap price... what else? :)

Remember that "not all Pad Thais are created equal," well that's because this one is exceptional. Get it. don't be expecting a great atmosphere, it is a simple restaurant.

Tasty and cheap here... and there are so many good looking dishes on the menu - look forward to coming back. Ask for thai-style if you like it spicy.

Mint Kitchen has built up a reputation as serving the 'best' traditional Thai dishes on Koh Tao. Located a short walk from Sairee Beach (just up the road from Monsson Gym), Mint Kitchen is surrounded by beautiful flowers. Come and meet P'Mia, the chef and owner, and one of the friendliest people on the island!
