We dined for a dear friends 60 th birthday. A Sunday afternoon 2.30 pm booking for 4. We have all been here for the past 15 years for significant occasions and I believe this was our best dining experience ever. In fact we were the last to leave as the kitchen and staff were closing up but good wine ,... More

We were looking forward to visiting this traditional venue, but were told by our holiday rep that it had closed due mainly to their high prices

Typical menu, no surprises, very old fashioned Thai. Well cooked food but not worth the money. Service immaculate. Salads good, but over sweet balance not right. All needed a good hit of chilli even though waitress said very spicy. Duck curry... A bit mean. Been there, done that . Probably won't go back

spirithouse_12, Owner at Spirit House Restaurant, responded to this review

I thank you for your review although I was disappointed with your score given you felt the food was very good and the service was immaculate. Spirit House is in fact originally from Ayudyha the former capital of Thailand and therefore both the building and the old fashioned food are representative of the original Thai architecture, food and culture which...

Having read the reviews we were expecting my more. There was a terrible smell of cooking fat coming From the kitchen which was below the side of the restaurant where we were sitting. The food was also so disapointing all deep fried and tasted of nothing but oil. Nothing authentic about this food would never go back. One to miss.

spirithouse_12, Owner at Spirit House Restaurant, responded to this review

I was extremely disappointed to read your review just as you were obviously disappointed with your visit. Spirit House primarily specializes in Thai salads,curries,fish and beef dishes and in fact very few of our dishes are fried in oil unlike most of the Thai dishes in many restaurants and we do this for a reason. However unfortunately for you and... More

This place is so pretty. Can't believe it is a street back from all the chaos that is Chaweng. We were basically the only ones in the restaurant and it therefore lacked a bit of atmosphere or I guess it was romantic depending on how you look at it! We ordered the banana flower salad and coconut battered prawns for... More

I thank you for choosing Spirit House for your dining and I appreciate and take on board your valued comments and sincerely apologize that your experience wasn't as you had hoped. Unfortunately Thai staff are generally conservative where a diner requests spicy as many visitors base degrees of spiciness from their experience back home which is quite different to Thailand....

All the other reviews were right... This place is great. Fresh, tasty ingredients and beautiful vegetables. Ask to make anything vegetarian. Everyone speaks English very well. Higher prices than the restaurants on the main street, but well worth it. Don't skip past this one!

Tucked away, but a beautiful building and worth seeking out. Excellent food in a real Thai restaurant.

I am coming to Koh Samui for my 50th Birthday this year and I am looking for a restaurant to host my Birthday Dinner on Monday 27th July for 16 people.

Could you host this for me? I thought the upstairs private dining may be suitable where the Thai Dancing is?

We would like to order share plates/banquet of your best Thai dishes. Could you give me some sort of idea on pricing for 16 people?

Can we order jugs of beer and jugs of cocktails as I believe wine is really expensive in Thailand?

Thank you,

Marie Shimmins
