“First time in its new location ”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

We visited restaurant 56 many times last year and often went to its early bird deal of 99 baht for a Thai curry, we heard it had moved from the village due to rent increases and it's now on the main road (behind the beach hotels, more or less opposite cafe 69)
They still do the same deal and the good was delicious .. Wasn't that fussed on the Vietnamese spring rolls but only because I thought they came hot, bit maybe that was my fault for not asking .. Portions were Large and service was good .. They didn't have high hairs like they did last year .. Which with a wriggling 2 year old can be a big deal, but we managed.
The only criticism I would say is that after the early bird (7pm) the menu is expensive for the location, it's like they have just moved from the village with the same menus etc but in that location they need to be more competitive .. Offer the 99 baht deal longer and I think they will survive .. I certainly think they will give cafe 69(which I thought was very overrated) a run for its money ..

“A Great place to eat but they have moved!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We stopped to look at this restaurant to read as they had some special offer on for a number of courses at a good price, but for western dishes which we found unusual as these are usually more expensive. We did not opt for the special, but went for the Thai food a red and a green curry with satay starter for each of us - huge! We wasted so much food hardly making a dent in the portion served. We are not big eaters, that said, I think the portions would have tested those with a big appetite. The service was great, the girls really lovely. We enjoyed our visit and went back for a return visit. We were told the day after was their last night as the "Lease" had come to an end and they would not pay the increased rent which had been doubled and were moving to a new venue up on the main road and not in Fishermans Village. Although it would not affect us, it is a shame for other holiday makers and the owners I guess, as the Village is buzzing. Their name may have return visitors seeking them out and I truly hope this is the case as they have something good to offer.

“Super good, super big portions, super price!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We were here for dinner. As we encountered in most Restaurants in Koh Samui rather small portions we mostly ordered 3 dishes for 2 persons. In this restaurant that was by far too much!
The portions were huge! The food was really really tasty and the atmosphere is nice! The Price is amazing!

“Very Nice Food”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We chose to eat here one night as the reviews were good and I was considering the cooking class there.
It was pretty busy and we got the last table, it was near the front so was a great stop for people watching while the Friday night markets were on. Both main courses were good, service was OK and the prices reasonable.

“Very good Thai food”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

It is a very nice and busy restaurant in Fisherman's village. We were lucky to get a table during Fisherman´s village market, because it is usually very busy on these days, so I would recommend to make a booking in advance. The Thai food we had there was very tasty and one of the best Thai food in Thailand so far. The portions are big compared to other restaurants. The service was fast and the staff friendly. You also have the possibility to book cooking classes at the restaurant. We had a great evening with good Thai food.
