“Worst restaurant in Koh Samui!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

If I could give 0 stars, I would. When we first arrived to the restaurant, the place looked nice. It has a great sea view.

But then... Firstly, there was no one to guide us to the tables, and we got only one menu for a group of 4 people. In the end, we got the menus after waiting about 10min. However, we didnt have time to look at them since the staff came to ask us our choices at least 5 times during 5min.

We ordered peppersteaks(2pcs), calzone pizza and deep fried squids. Squids were ordered with vegetable rice(recommended). The rice came first and they also brought the "deep fried squids". However, they were something completely different. At this point we had waited at least half hour. Meanwhile the peppersteaks arrived, looking like a dish from gas station. The meat was overcooked and totally uneatable. The pizza was a joke. The dough tasted like breaddough with yeast. There was only cheese and ham inside what shouldnt be in pizza calzone. Lastly, the dishes came at different times so we couldnt really eat together.

The service was worst possible. We had 10 waiters and none of them knew what to do nor spoke English. They werent interested of their customers and didnt apologize for anything we had mentioned. There was one "head" waitress who tried to translate everything for the other waiters and tried to clean up the other waiters' mess. She didnt do a good job though. She was very bossy and tried to choose the dishes for us.

Ultimately the service and food was horrible, but the views and the surroundings were quite nice.

“Great fried fresh fish and prawns”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Great meal. Picked own fish off the ice tray as well as prawns. Pay by weight price of the day. Cooked BBQ or fried. The fish was done in typical deep fried style as a whole fish and ate down to the last bone!! Great service. Some tables right on beach. Prawns BBQ with lovely mild garlic chili sauce as we asked to have it not too spicy. Fresh food and reasonably priced.

“Definitely top local restaurant in Koh Samui.”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

My last time there was just as great as any previous trips. The food was scrumptious and the atmosphere was great. They serve very nice local food and fresh seafood. I always order a fish dish and it never fail me - well none of their dishes fail me. Just have to visit them every time I'm in Koh Samui. Dinner at Jun Hom always leave me feeling overloaded with happy stomach :) Be there around 4 or 5 so you can enjoy the nice sea view with white sandy beach and catch a glimpse of sunset.

“Fantastic local food!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

I like the food there...I had several of the recommended dishes and they were very good especially Thai local food such as "Namprik Koong-Sod (Thai chilli and shrimp paste) and Kang Som Poo-Ma (Spicy soup with crab)". The staff are friendly and attentive. The price is reasonable and the restaurant is next to the beach.

“Great food, good people...”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Located just next to The Sea Villa and Resort, Jun Hom offers a fantastic array of Thai food in a Thai environment. Fresh sea food, spicy, delicious and fresh. Try the White or Red Snapper. They really make it well. The food was so good that our group of 14 went back again and ate a real great meal along with great fun... Hearty meal with drinks very reasonably priced, around USD 15 per person... Highly recommended for good Thai food...
