Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

We had green curry dumplings, pad Thai spring rolls, Penang curry steak and mango curry fish. The chef / owner was a nice as can be and we can't recommend this place highly enough. We met some Italians snorkeling today who recommended this restaurant. What a find! Please go if your in ko Samui! You won't be disappointed!!

“Try this place out!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We visited Cafe 69 during one of the regular power cuts on the island - the food was great and served by the light of multiple candles! Vivian brought us our food and was so determined to ensure we were happy with the food despite the lack of lighting!

We both had starters and mains, which were really yummy. We had a beer and a cocktail (which came in a small jug!!!) The food was classic thai, with a modern twist.

Definitely worth a visit if you are staying in Bo Phut, part of the joy of the place is Vivian himself who absolutely embodied the spirit of all the Thai people we met

“Lives up to and exceeds reputation”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

An amazing experience the eclectic taste in decor. Great drinks and some of the most innovative takes on Thai food I have ever had. An amazing food experience. Will be back again and again to compile my list of favourite dishes.

“A real treat”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Had dinner here with friends. What a special find. The menu is not huge but everything on the menu appealed to us. Vivian greeted us on arrival, everyone is like a long lost friend to him. The restaurant decor is something else.
The food was tasy, innovative and beautifully presented. The passion fruit drink was great.
I highly recommend that anyone visiting Koh Samui eats here.

“One of the best in Bophut!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here one night as we were too tired to venture out to chaweng (our usual haunt) and wanted to try cafe 69 out. The service and food were both excellent! Definitely tasty and fresh and everyone was kind and attentive who served us. If you prefer dining in bophut and don't care about a beach view or temperature (it can get warm inside despite their efforts to cool it down with fans) then cafe69 is your place! A cute, quirky delight in bophut. Definitely try the curry dumplings and fried rice with prawns -yum yum!
