Well located, nice decoration, great quality Thai food and fish. Severs know how to serve and chef knows how to cook quality food. They have nice selection of wines. Price is fair. Next door the same owners have an Italian place. Worth eating there

This was a great find by me and my friends. It’s along the main strip in Chaweng so is easy to find. The food was so flavorful & service was great. Would highly recommend this restaurant if your in Koh Samui!!
