“Surprising Culinary Experience in Sumai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile


If you enjoy the art of dinning you will agree that this is a world class experience in gastronomy!
Owners Peter and Lek have brought together a fusion of lighting, music, architecture, and service to create an environment for you to enjoy their creative selection of dishes.
Don't miss the Crying Tiger appetizer and / or any of their Risotto dishes.
We had the artichoke salad and Duck Chinese style! 10's!
After dinner we had a decadent chocolate mousse on the Sky Bar which reminded us of St Tropez!
We loved it!

“Tourist trap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We learnt about it through an internet site that states that it's one of the best places in town.
Although the view is awesome and the staff is well-trained, the food is not that good and it is really not worth the price.
We paid 2500 Baht per person for an appetizer and a main course.
We were really disappointed by the quality and quantity of the food.

“Very poor value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

This was one of the few disappointment of our trip in Koh Samui.
The place is very nice, with a very nice view and quite good service.
However, the food is not THAT good and is VERY expensive. Approximately 2500 baht if you want a starter and a main dish which should be enough. If you want to add a bottle of wine you might pay more...

Really it is a waste of money, you might spend it elsewhere or go to 9gems to have one drink at the roof...

“Great Venue with Zero Atmosphere!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Booked the place for NY and were super excited to be the for the celebrations.
The set menu was very nice and plentiful but this is where it all ended!
The traditional Thai show was nice but think it was cut short.
The DJ couldn't get his equipment to work and when he finally managed to get it working, he played awful music
The few people that attended just got up and left.
For the price that was charged, it was a total let down.
We then heard other people went there for dinner after the NY and the same, no atmosphere at all.
It's a shame, because the place can be a real gem!

“Average and empty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

While the host was gracious and the view great, the food was a great let down. Especially the gnocchi. The cocktails were poorly made. Lastly, the place was empty! Saving grace was the manager / host who was polite and apologetic
