“Yummy!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled across this place by accident one day whilst on our way back from the beach, what a find! The food here is amazing, service is pretty quick, sometimes with a smile, sometimes without haha. We returned as the food was so good, especially for the money. We can highly recommend the Massman and Penang curries and the pad thai :-D

“Food is solid and cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We had to eat here about 1/2 the time we stayed in Koh Tao, the food is really good, and a great deal. The place doesn't look like much but it's really worth going. I usually get sick at a lot of places where it's 'street food style' but didn't have a problem here at all. The one lady that works there is super hard working doing everything, and so friendly.

“Best and biggest king prawns we've ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

The owner is French and his wife Thai. She is so passionate about her cooking. we started off with vegetable tempura or sometimes called 'no name.'They were shaped like pakoras and not the usual style for Thailand, but they were delicious. They has a slight curry flavour to them, and were the best we had on koh Tao or Koh Samui this year. We picked prawns for our main. 3 massive ones each one bigger than my husbands hand. We were told how they were going to be cooked. Wrapped in foil with garlic and herbs to give them flavour and soften the shells. and boy she was not wrong. The shells just lifted off and revealed succulent tasty prawns under. We had these with steamed rice, pad Thai and cold Chang. So good we went back for more, 2 nights later and also had a sea bass which was again wonderfully cooked. Brilliant.

“All about the fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Typical local place serving the best fish on Ko Tao red & white snapper tuna squid barracuda And giant prawns to name a few. They cook them in a pillow of foil on the barbecue in herbs & spices delicious succulent on your plate a couple of ours after being caught. They have all the other specialitys curries phad Thai stir fries salads etc. They serve beer and wine by the glass or bring your own wine you can drop it in during the day and they'll put it in the fridge for later. They do cooking lessons as well.
