This restaurant is so lovely I can't stop bragging about it. I am vegan and it's really amazing to be able to choose from the restaurants vegetarian menu. Not many places in the area seem to cater to vegetarians who are looking for authentic Thai flavours. I have tried several things so far, and everything has been delicious and beautifully... More

Im sitting right now in this restaurant and the food was good. Not perfect but good. So it's totally worth the money to go here. I don't understand the bad reviews at all. Restaurant is a bit small but the size is charming. :)

We didn't discover this gem until our 2nd to last night, otherwise would have made this our "regular". The food was great and the service even better. Small place, but well worth the visit. Menu has everything and anything you could want. Next time in Samui, we'll definitely be going back!

Lovely “family run” restaurant in central Chaweng. Delicious Thai food cooked by family members and nice interaction with UK/English speaking owner & good service. Found their prices for imported (bottle) wine some of the best while in Chaweng. Good food + good wine = VERY NICE!

The restaurant is part owned by (Andy) an ex-Brit, After finding this place we looked no further and went back every night. Andy was friendly and helpful as were the rest of his staff. The food was of excellent quality, excellent value and 'safe'.If you are there this year try it for a meal you will not be disappointed.

We eat here twice and both times the food was delicious. I would recommend the Thai curries. The staff were very helpfully and can make as spicy as you like!

Stopped by here based on the trip advisor rating. Had the Thai stuffed olmette. Was of miniature size and was stuffed with frozen veg that wasn't even fully cooked and for 150baht excluding VAT and service charge. Not sure how it got such good ratings A 2 is being generous

The portions are small and high-ish price for thai food. The panang curry was ok. The chicken was rubbery so probably frozen before!
