Beryl Bar is just a 5 minute walk down the dusty road that the Mai Samui Resort sits on. Greeted by a paper mache Santa Claus and reggae music we were slightly skeptical. Piak (the owner) was just as friendly as the other reviews have implied and came right out and greeted us and chatted... Plastic chairs and table cloths and kind of a hodgepodge of lights, flags and decor, Beryl Bar can definitely be described as casual dining. It overlooks a bay and the sea which affords a fabulous view of the sunset. We sat down, ordered drinks and started exploring the menu, immediately identifying about 12 things we wanted to to try.... the service was quick and friendly and the food was absolutely divine. Tempura Shrimp, coated and cooked to perfection in a coconutty, crisp batter, Penang curry which put all other Thai food I have eaten to shame with its herbaciousness and depth and last but not least, Pad Thai which was basically a flavor explosion of acidity, sweetness, salt and spice. We loved it so much we went back twice during out stay at Mai Samui resort... do yourself a favor and seek it out... you will not regret it!
