“A delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Only seldom you will encounter such heartfelt hospitality. The simplest of surroundings, paired with the freshest seafood. Go with the advice of the owner. He knows best. Don't expect culinary greatness, but simply prepared very large prawns with a fair bit of chillies and garlic. Great sunset viewing, but come on time, the kitchen closes at dusk.

“Unspoilt Superb Quiet Beach Location with stunning views, food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

I thought twice about reviewing this Restaurent which would have been unfair on the wonderful owners but I like its unspoilt charm and wasn't sure I wanted to share it :-).
If you aren't interested in the busy and girly bar atmosphere of Chaweng and Lamai then the South of the island is well worth renting a car to visit. It's possible still to find your own stretch of beach and find real Authentic gems like this restaurant. The owners are friendly and welcoming and speak excellent English. They run tours from the Restaurent and seem to have there own fishing boats so elected to have freshly caught baked prawns (huge) with glass noodles and soy, my wife had grilled prawns with salad. Both felt this was one of the best meals we've enjoyed. I can't understand why this is only their third review as its our second trip to the Restaurent and there was other people there each time. It's unspoilt setting on the beach with amazing views is in maybe modest but normal surroundings for this area are well overcompensated for by the real authentic and varied menu. I was shocked by the terrible review on trip advisor and my only suggestion to the owners would be to take the burgers and chips off the menu and stick with clientele that came to Thailand looking for real Thai cuisine.
Good luck

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

Beautiful place in an amazing quiet part of the island. We went back for lunch several times during our stay and found the Thai food is cheap and absolutely delicious (why you would go to Thailand and eat hamburgers and chips is beyond me, unless you're a child). The owner took the time to talk about the food and how it was made (I'm very interested in Thai cooking) and it was an all-round excellent, authentic experience. I can't wait to get back there.
