Very cheap, great food and great choice. I have never seen so much fresh seafood in my life, service was quick and efficient even though everything appears chaotic

“Best Thai food in Koh Samui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

By far the best Thai food we had in Samui - we went 3 times in a 10 night stay!

The food is relatively cheap compared to everywhere else in Samui - Our bill came to a average of 480thb.. This included two cocktails, two rice, two main courses (not fish) and spring rolls to share.

The place has a great atmosphere of thai locals, seasoned travellers and people who love thai food!

We went back with friends we met there and they loved it to! Great restaurant!

“Best restaurant in Chaweng & Samui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

My fiance has been coming to this restaurant for about 6 or 7 years however this was my first time eating here even though my third time to Samui - wow i wish i knew it was here before!

Wonderful, fresh, delicious seafood for very good prices, in fact all the food, seafood or not is delicious, fresh and clean. The service is friendly, efficient and warm and they also make the BEST coconut shakes I've had in thailand.

I had really been wondering where all the good places to get great seafood were and Mitra Samui was the answer. On our last trip to Samui in May we ate there everyday for either lunch or dinner and we did not get sick of it. The menu is varied with lots of choice, however you also get the option of browsing the lovely selection of fresh seafood at the front & choosing what you want and how you want it cooked or letting them suggest a delicious way of cooking it for you!

Highly recommend!!!! YUM YUM YUM

Note: the restaurant is open but most of the seating is undercover. The prices vary depending on what you order but its very cheap when you order off the menu. Even the prices for the fresh seafood at the front are very reasonable also.
For example we ordered for 3 of us: Whole large red snapper, large plateful of mussels, half dozen oysters, half dozen king prawns + chicken & rice dish, large plate of fried egg rice, large spicy soup with crab & seafood and numerous cokes & coconut drinks & we paid 2200 baht and we couldn't eat it all! That was our most expensive meal there and we went all out that night on fresh seafood

“Favourite place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

To be honest we were disappointed with food on Samui. I felt sick after most meals and had to resort to McDonalds on more than one occasion (oh the shame).

I wish we had found Mitra earlier in our holiday, we would have eaten there every night. We did manage to squeeze 3 visits in and each time was perfect and we ate wayyy too much.

This place was packed every time we visited. The customers - a mix of locals, expats and people that have returned. No typical tourists here. Mitra is in a bit of quiet spot, there's a food market there and a few other seafood restaurants that were empty.

The owner is a character, loves to chat and seems to know everyone. He will help you order and recommend whats good. The prices are reasonable, squid fried with garlic was about 300 thb, we also picked out a snapper and that was about 500 thb for the whole fish, but depends on the size. The owners special tamarind sauce is a must try.

Please visit this place, you wont be dissapointed!
