My husband and i went to Koh Samui 2 weeks ago. We love Thai food and tried most of the the Thai restaurants in Koh Samui. We found out one night Kob restaurant, which is not located on the main street but just a little bit apart. And we discovered an amazing thai restaurant. The chef is a grand ma, and she cooks like it was for her children! The restaurant by the way is a family affair and you feel it. We had raw shrimps ( yes! Raw shrimps!) with fresh garlic and mint, unforgettable. Rice noodles with prawns, now that was prawns: huge!! When in others restaurants in Koh Samui.Lamai beach, prawns were just shrimps ( Sala thai restaurant for example). We recommend Kob restaurant 100%, we are still dreaming of their cuisine!!

We rode past this quaint little setting and decided to stop in. The setting was nice, staff and service excellent and the food FANTASTIC. We both had curries and they were faultless. The price was excellent. VALUE FOR MONEY. Better food than some of the fancy restaurants at a fraction of the price. You can even get wine at a very reasonable price. A must do while in Koh Samui.

So nice we went there twice! Location is a bit off the main road so be sure your cab driver knows where it is before you get in the car.
Nice garden setting with "sala" style tables. Also a large pool that can be used for a small fee. There are only 6 or 8 tables so there can be a wait, but be patient...sooooo worth it! Huge menu and everything is prepared fresh to order. Ms. Kob is so friendly and will make sure your evening is perfect. Try the fresh fried whole fish!

We went here with friends. They had made a reservation but when we were taken to our table it hadn`t been laid , not so much as a napkin. 1 of the meals went back as prawns were off another dish was ordered without onions but duly arrived with so that went back too. Waitress was very abrupt and there was no ambience to the place at all. Definitely not on my return list

Thank's for your review about our restaurant.We are very sorry about your complains , as we try to do our best , as the numerous good reviews attest.
For sure , the night you came , we had a weakness with one staff. Two of our regular staff were not there ( one sick, one in temple) and we had to replace staff in one day . The girl that we found was , unfortunately, too rude and abrupt, and we unfortunaltely agree about your comment. This girl was fired 2 days after. She probably forget the non onion dish order. Sorry for that. About the prawns , we desagree ,about your comment , as we buy and check these small prawns everyday. We checked the dish that you refused and we found it ok.I guess that your bad comment about it can be explained by our bad service this night. So , we apologize again. For the napkin , we prefer to keep our wooden table without napkin as , it is more genuine. But we can understand easily that you should prefer to have napkins.So , we regret faithfully your unpleasant night with us, and we will , obviously, offer you something if you accept to come back one day. Best regards from the Kob's managment team.
