We found this restaurant from google map, after our round-the-island of koh samui, the food is tasty, cheap and clean and the view is incredible, we eat while enjoying the sunset and also his Ministry is very remarkable.

The Thai food here is great, and the portions are almost too big. Really nice and quiet place, a hidden pearl. The service is very good, and the whole staff greets you when you come and leaves:)

I have been going to Samui for the last 18 years and quite frequently stay at the intercon baan talingam (formerly the meredien). Right next to it is an absolutely delightful restaurant- the Five Islands. The food is consistently excellent ( my wife and kids ate there half a dozen times) -both the thai (not foreigner thai food but authentic thai food) and western dishes are excellent.

Then the views- to die for both during the day and at sunset. The massages-true thai nassages at reasonable prices-not to be missed- an addiction which is worthwile:)

And the most special aspect of this gem is the owner K,Layala and the staff. Extremely helpful , courteous and just wonderful people (they organised a cake for my son's birthday on their own). K,Layala the owner went out of her way to be helpful (it came naturally to her ) on so many occasions for the family as a whole -a memorable experience.

The restaurant is moving from October 2014 to Ratcha pier- worth the little extra 5 minute drive from the current location.

Do not confuse this gem with its next door neighbour (which we did the first time) the Island view restaurant who have tried to copy the five islands but every single aspect of island view comes a distant last to the five islands

Went over to have drinks just before the sunset and it is the most fantastic view that I encountered.... the drinks can be improved during the happy hours. Food is good and the service team is very friendly and accommodating.... some interesting merchandizing items there as well.... definitely recommended for sunset....

In comparison to the island view they still have some ground to cover.

Staff is nice but food tastes a bit unfinished..
