“Decent food, service bit of a let down”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere is really nice here, greeted at the door a friendly waiter he brought us to our table. Our second waitresses English wasn't the greatest got a bit frustrating saying everything 3 or 4 times.. But eventually got ordered.

Starters came out really quick and was very good chicken satay skewers. Plates were cleared quite quickly but clean cutlery wasn't replaced on our table before our mains out Thai green curry and fried noodles arrived so had to ask for them.

Portions are quite large, but we managed to finish to our surprise. Was waiting about 10 minutes to get the check as there wasn't a waitress or waiter in sight but would eat here again.. Didn't venture into the cocktail part of the restaurant but was empty when we were leaving though it was a Sunday night.

“Great Food and Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I Have only been in KOH at lunchtime during the week but always found the food really really tasty and very reasonably priced considering its location. Staff are alway efficient and the service is friendly and quick.

I must visit more often

“Great location for hen nights (if you're looking for that sort of thing) and wonderful food if you are not”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I was worried that this place was a bit too classy for my sister's hen but they were so attentive and friendly that we never felt we were in the way or ruining other people's nights. The food was great and the cocktail class spectacular. The whole package was great value for money. The staff were really accommodating, even when the numbers kept changing up and down. We offered to tidy up the hen night tat afterwards but they wouldn't let us - telling us to go and enjoy ourselves! I will definitely return to this restaurant and can't wait to have some more of their delicious cocktails.

“Still savouring the taste of an amazing meal!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I was initially drawn to Koh because of their amazing cocktails (really, the Flirtini is a must-try), but then one evening I ventured into the restaurant for some food.

One word - WOW.

I was with a large group and so we decided to order a varied selection to share. I was blown away by every dish and was really impressed with the care and knowledge of the waiter. They had some unusual and quirky dishes and he effortlessly explained in detail why each ingredient had been chosen and the part it played in the overall taste experience.

It was so enjoyable that I made another reservation on the way out!

In summary, everything about this place is original, cool and quite simply, delectable
