We've been in Samui for 5 days and we ate almost everyday here is perfect service and really good food. We always finish our meal in Shake point just opposite to Imchai.

What a find!we were staying at the Buddy Oriental hotel and this place was within staggering distance. Best thai green curry of the whole holiday and with 2main meals,rice and a couple of beers for around £5 you cannot got wrong. It's true as written in a couple of reviews that your meals don't always come out at the same time but I found that in most restaurants we visited...your food just tends to come out when it's ready, rather that than sat around under a hot plate as happens in England!Definitely worth a visit

What a charming little restaurant. The menu is excellently set out in both English and Thai with photographs of each dish and the option to have it mild or spicy. As a lover of spicy food I had been disappointed at some restaurants in Samui and throughout Thailand, having specifically asking for spicy food yet receiving bland dishes. Imchai, however, does not disappoint. We ended up eating here on 3 days out of our 5 day stay. I particularly recommend the Shrimp in Chilli Paste, BBQ chicken salad which is warm with lovely fresh flavours, and the Fish Cakes are also delicious. The shakes are very reasonably priced at 30Baht and there's lots of fruit in them, the banana shake was my favourite. Also the coffee shake (not on the menu) was refreshing. Overall, I highly recommend. Great service and great food - cheap!

For the last week we have eaten here more than 3 times. We normally don't go twice to the same place because we love trying new spots. Nevertheless we came back here. The chili paste and BBQ chicken is our favorite!
Don't expect fancy service or meals at the same time, but the taste is amazing.


Cheers from lamai beach and a family from holland

Yes it's chaotic and busy, but you are served precisely in order, you have to keep on top of things....but ..when your food arrives it is simply gorgeous. Myself and my wife have eaten here the last 3 days. Tonight my wife asked if she could have the Green Curry with just veggies..no problem, the most amazing curry, packed full of vegetables we haven't even heard of ..awesome and so cheap!The Massaman is great, Phad Thai too, beer cheap ,toilets spotless..need I go on!!!?
