As this is one of our local restaurants we have been visiting since it opened a few months back and it is consistently good. The Thai food is very good and the European food surprisingly good. I say surprisingly as it is a small restaurant and sometimes they don't come up to scratch, but here it does. We took four business colleagues who were staying at the Four Seasons two nights ago and they were very impressed. The setting is fabulous right on the beach, lots of coconut trees, lights everywhere, lots of reggae memorabilia, comfy seats and tables and of course mine host, Carsten, who works extremely hard. The place is beautifully clean and six small bamboo beach huts that can he rented for the night have been recently added. Again beautifully done and very in keeping. Oh and mustn't forget the reggae music of course! If you are driving along the beach road just before you go up the mountain to Nathon, it's on the right hand side with all the reggae flags outside. Recommend it.

If the locals had not recommended, we would have probably never tried, misled but its reggae "ish" appearance. Away from the pluri advertised restaurants of the Fishermen village (which have nothing of what you would remotely define as Thai cousine ,if not the names on the menu), King Busch is one of the best places you will find in Koh Samui:
1. the food is an exquisite example of local cousine ( do try the soups!)
2. the tables are right on an amazing beach - perfect for a romantic dinner as well as a pleasant evening with family/friends
3. the price is very very good
4. the chef and the staff incredibly endearing
5. the place is open from 8 am to 10 pm, if you want to try it at lunch or get one of the sun umbrellas and spend the day enjoying the sun.
Don't miss it!!!

Firstly, it's a rather unassuming impression... a little portal down to the beach and some soft reggea music playing non-stop. But then you get to meet the chef and the staff, and it's getting endearing... and then the food comes and you realise you've found a little gem. International food is on the menu, but go for the thai food which is great and very well priced!

And then... the icing on the cake: return at night, and you'll find the most marvellous setting. Small athmosperic lights everywhere, tables right on the beach where you'll dine excellently while resting tired feet on white sand.

PS: apparently the place is mistakenly registered as in Phuket on TA!
