“Below expectations”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Our group of five had dinner here whilst on holiday. We found the service to be friendly and helpful and the drink orders were taken regularly and arrived promptly. The food however was disappointing.

Our group ordered a rack of ribs, sirloin steak, Penang curry and BBQ lobster. It is unusual to not order Thai food in Thailand, however people in the group were craving meat dishes.

After a one hour wait our meals arrived. The ribs were good but the accompaniments were cold and inedible (e.g. coleslaw without dressing). The same can be said of the steak. The lobster was pretty well cooked (but again with cold accompaniments). The curry was fine. If the meals had not have arrived cold, and after an hour wait, we would have scored the restaurant much higher.

It was incredibly disappointing to find (after the lobster was delivered) that it was a female lobster with eggs. It is disheartening to think that these are being fished & kept and I have since made a point to check any lobsters or crabs before ordering.

Overall it would be a great place to go on a night when it's not busy.

I had a chance to try differet taste of sauces, they were really delicious.Staffs' english was not perfect but friendly relation made me satisfied. Actully A Nice Restaurant to try while you were in Koh Samui !!!!!

“We ate here 3 times”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Really good selection of seafood, good price, well cooked food, good service.
Restaurant may need a bit of a lick of paint and clean and toilets need cleaned, but this did not ruin our experience here.
We ate here 3 times, excellent grill

“Amazing and cheap”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I came here just walking past, he ordered about 6 tiger prawns(massive) which then came with potatoes, coleslaw and a corn for about $15 aus, and I had the chicken Penang curry for about $3.50 aus. Amazing food and great prices. Cocktails and beers are under $3 aus. Defentally coming back here again.
Great service and friendly staff- will come back tomorrow:)
