“OK .....nothing special”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Ate here once and was not overly impressed with the food or the service or ambience. The green curry was tempered for western palates not what i look for but perfectly edible, pad thai noodle was slightly better but there are better places to dine.

“Very good!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

We went for lunch to Krua Bophut. The restaurant was at that moment empty, only a red cat was lying in the window ( the cat was not anoying, he was only sleeping). The red curry and the chicken coconut soup are delicious and the service good!! Not all the ladies can spea english, but some of them.

A good restaurant with very good food for lunch of dinner!

“Best curry on the Island”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Best curry that I sampled in Koh Samui.

Not a bad start but more later on the curry. It was time for dinner and Krua Bophut is a large wooden restaurant with outdoor seating on the beach. It was very warm that night and the mosquito’s enjoying making my wife suffer so we chose a window seat inside that allowed us to pretend we were outside while in the safety of the air conditioning.

The staff are very friendly and very efficient. We chose the mixed starters to begin with:

These were great and had a nice mixture of fish, meat and veg to choose from. From main I had chosen a Massaman Curry and my wife a red curry.

Im not going to lie or exaggerate here, my Massaman curry has set my new benchmark for currys of any region in the world. It was terrific. Full of beef and potatoes and managed to be thick, sweet, sour, spicey and creamy all in one go. I ended up having Massaman curry in every Thai restaurant for the rest of our holiday to make sure I hadnt got a little giddy and not one of them could compare to this. Fantastic.

The bill was criminally cheap. I had to check it twice to make sure we had been charged correctly (we had) for this level of taste and experience Krua Bophut has to be top of your list in Bo Phut.

“A beautiful restaurant on Bophut beach”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We were there really late (after 10pm), so we only had soups there (the famous coconut milk Thai soup!). Even though the portions were on the small(er) side, the soup was delicious. The ocean views, though, are breathtaking. Both the inside and outside seating areas are simply beautiful and romantic. The service was excellent.

“Delicious Thai food in Bo Phut!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We went here twice, very nice Thai food, good banquets available! The first time I went we got hassled by someone for money (free beer if you donate money to them... ??) which was a bit annoying, but didn't dull the flavours of the food at all. Highly recommend for anyone staying in the Bo Phut region.
