“Get there early...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

We found this place through Trip Advisor, otherwise you might miss it. It is located at the far end of Fisherman's Village and is literally a hut. There's only a few tables and it gets crowded early. However we got lucky to dine there twice during our 8 night stay in Bophut. The 2nd time we had to wait until someone left but it was worth it. The food is super cheap (2 beers, Paenang Chicken & Massaman Chicken with tip for 340 baht!) and very good. The Paenang was one of the best I've ever had. For our 2nd trip the service was a bit spotty but it's only one real server for each table and sometimes a few kids help run the food out. The 2nd trip we got the fried calamari, shrimp pad thai and shrimp stir fry. Again, all for around 400 baht with tip and all great food. It's very good food for a very good price.

Food really good at very reasonable prices -- can be busy at times so may need to book earlier in day to get a table at night.

“Don't waste your Thai (m) anywhere else!! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

This place should definitely be at the top of your list of real local Thai restaurants to visit in Ko Samui... It is fairly small and is located at the eastern end of fisherman's village and is absolutely delicious and fantastic value for money!! Food was great and fresh with big choice of Thai meals. Service done by owners kids i think but they were very cool and efficient.. Place was packed when we visited on a Tuesday night but still managed to get a table. Will definitely be back..!!

“Excellent Thai food + very cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

We found this restaurant on our third day in Ko Samui and then we spent each dinner there for the rest of our holiday. It is very simple local Thai family restaurant, the food and drinks are delicious and the prices very low. We tried also some fancy restaurants in Ko samui (e.g.Orgasmic) as we love good food and visiting restaurants but the food wasn't better. The Hut is really good choice if you want to enjoy great Thai food and not to spent a lot of money.
