“Good Food, Super Slow Service”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We ordered two salads for lunch at 1.05pm yesterday and got them at 1.55pm!

Fair enough they were good but the restaurant wasn't over busy and that a ridiculous time to wait for something so simple. Add into it the fact there were loads of flies, the free internet didn't work and the beer wasn't cold, we left disappointed and won't be returning.

That's a shame as the food was authentic Thai and reasonably priced too.

“Great food and enjoyable and comprehensive cooking school”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We have been to Addy's cooking school twice with friends who have visited Koh Samui (we live here at the moment) and were impressed by Addy's knowledge and enthusiasm. We eat at Addy's restaurant on a weekly basis and although sometimes have a bit of a wait for the food, it is always hot, fresh and excellently cooked. Mainly salas for 4 people and good background music. Addy's wife and the other staff are very friendly and this is a great place to enjoy a few beers with friends and some home cooked authentic Thai food.

“Simply amazing”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We popped into Addy's restaurant after walking by and seeing him cooking some amazing stir fry right next to the street.
The restaurant itself is ok for Thai standards, they've obviously been doing a bit of work but still have more to do, but at the end of the day who cares, it doesn't get in the way.
The staff are very friendly and smily, nothing was too much trouble, the menu is extensive and varied with lots of tantalising dishes... Then there is the food - wow is all I can say!
We had crap cakes and prawn spring rolls to start, loads of both and really fresh and vibrant. My partner had a curry and I had prawn wonton soup, we also shared a chicken rice, all were good quality and delicious, the soup was the best I've ever eaten, it was that good.
I can't fault the place, friendly atmosphere and brilliant food - avoid fisherman's market and it's overpriced tourist rubbish and come here to sample real quality thai food!

“If you want to cook great Thai food go here!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

My husband and I were keen for an authentic, reasonably-priced Thai cooking class on our honeymoon, so were excited to discover Addy Siam, with great reviews, quite close to our hotel. We would never have picked this place, which looks like scores of others around it (simple, tidy, bamboo furniture and colourful decorations) as special - but it is. The experience and food was a highlight of our 8 days in Samui!

The class ran at 4pm for two hours, for 1,200 THB. They like bookings the afternoon before, so we phoned to book in, at which time they invited requests for three dishes we'd like to cook (good idea to have a think about your favourites before you call).

We were excited that it was just the two of us doing the class, with our own ingredients, implements and cooking stations. It was personalised, interactive, well-paced and just challenging enough for us (frequent cooks). With incredibly fresh seafood, chicken, local veggies and lots of spices and sauces we made fragrant and mouth-watering Tom Yum soup and two excellent stir-fries. Addy was relaxed and a great instructor, and his assistants took some great photos (emailed through to us quickly afterwards) and kept our cooking stations spotless and well-equipped.

The whole experience was fantastic - great value for money, a fun and relaxing way to spend a few hours and delicious, memorable food! Highly recommend!!

“Proper Thai Food!”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

We tried quite a few of the restaurants in Fisherman's Village and found them expensive and westernised - pad Thai and chips...! But we ended up eating here three times and had really good food.

The giant prawns with garlic were wonderful. Unpretentious home cooking and very reasonable. Do try it!
