“Fresh Seafood - great price”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Seafood here was great, it was fresh and beautifully cook, also a reasonable price. There were other yummy items on the menu if you didn't like seafood and the staff were super efficient and very friendly.

“average food terrible service”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

We came across this place one Sunday evening. First lets start on the positives. It is a pleasant restaurant, nicely laid out and plays gentle nice music in the background. It consists of appoximately 18 tables and on this evening 15 of them including ours was occupied. We ordered a shared starter which arrived after about 10 minutes, no complaint so far. This consisted of two spring rolls, two satay sticks and what resembled two chicken nuggets. Sparse but ok. We ordered as our main course duck in a red curry sauce and my wife had chicken noodles. Not a gourmet challenge one would think. Other reviewers have said service is not that quick. Having worked in restaurants I am aware of time constraints but to keep customers waiting for an hour between finishing the starters and getting their main course is unacceptable. Sure this is Thailand, we were not in a hurry, just hungry!!! It was not until I said that I was leaving that the mains appeared. Paying the bill the manager/cook apologised saying it was busy, he should try working in a London restaurant if he considers 15 tables busy. It would also have helped if he had stayed in the kitchen as we saw him serving drinks and food at the tables. After all of this the food was average , certainly Johns Garden, around the corner is vastly superior in quality and professionalism. It costs more but goes to prove you get what you pay for. Suffice to say we will not be returning.

“Best meal I've had in ages!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We we're staying at the Samui Buri and this was just round the corner - tucked away a little so could be hard to find - but my god it was worth finding! We ate there twice during our 6 night stay and would have eaten there more but it was closed one night we tried - News Years Day private party!

The setting it so pretty, with fairy lights and lanterns. The music is nice and one of the waiters takes pride in selecting it and entering his DJ booth set up, which is nice.

The calamari to start was incredible and very reasonable - done fresh on their BBQ at the front of the restaurant.

We both had the Crispy Barracuda in Red(or Penang can't remember!) Curry sauce and I have to say it was absolutely incredible! We both had it again the next time we visited!

The cocktails were very moreish - we had quite a few between us! And reasonably priced - the whole meal was about 1000baht which was ridiculous for the quality of food.

As mentioned in other reviews - service was a little slow but we really didn't care, the setting as so nice and the cocktails helped pass the time nicely!

“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

A lovely restaurant with a nice ambience. I stayed at the coco palm which was just a short walk away. This restaurant was hard to resist with cute fairy lights and other lighting around the outdoor dining area. The fresh fish was on display and it tasted super fresh too! The staff were friendly and the experience was really enjoyable along with all food and drink consumed. Highly recommend.

“Sooo! good!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

This restaurant is a gem. But you should come here during the evening and possibly reserve a table if possible. The food is excllent, cheap. A bit on the slow side on service when the restaurant is full. But it really does not matter - we are in no hurry in Thailand!
