this place ROCKS! literally! My lady and I found out about this joint from our bar tender Gai at our hotel in Samui (Pandora lifestyle Hotel). It is owned and operated by his older brother Sak. we ate here twice during our stay in Samui, once just me and the wife and another time with some friends we made on our travels. if you are a fan of Korean BBQ you will love this joint. Moo Ka Ta is the Thai version and I would be lying if I said I didn't prefer it to the Korean Style. the lay out of the dining area has a very homely feel to it. You are, after all, eating in Sak"s front yard. On our second trip to the elephant house that Sak built, we were greeted warmly by our friend and host and offered a few beers at the bar before the main event, the Moo Ka Ta experience is a communal one with all the ingredients for a delicious meal placed on your table. we had marinated pork,beef,chicken, prawns and squid that we cooked to our personal preference on a griddle plate at the table, there are sides of Khao Pad (Thai fried rice) and a delicious dish of noodles and vegetables in broth (the name of which I cant recall) and sauces of varying degrees of heat (I Had the very hot one and it felt like my tongue was melting). after dinner we were invited to relax in the pool with a few more beers and then were treated to a rehearsal of the house rock band that usually only plays for big parties or on the weekends, but seeing as it was a Wednesday night and the full moon party was happening in Koh Phanang our table of four were the only customers there. which made for an even more magical experience as we didn't have to share it with anyone else. A great night out for around 15 bucks a head (including drinks) definitely a must do if you're in Koh Samui.

We were put onto this restaurant through an employee at our hotel. We got picked up from our front door and were taken to Baan Chang for an experience that I don't think you can get in other restaurants on Samui. We had mentioned to the hotel employee that we liked Pad See Ew and Khao Pad and when we arrived it was ready for us. Shortly after we were served up the meat for our Moo Ka Ta (similar to Korean Barbeque but BETTER!) We cooked our own meat on the provided grill plate, it was the most tender and flavorsome meat I have had in a long time! Meats included were chicken, pork, squid, prawns , fish and beef. I felt like we were eating with friends and family at someones house, the service was super friendly and efficient. It may not be in the main area of chaweng but take the time to go here, you won't regret it!
