Description: Fish at Thip's is an authentic Thai seafood restaurant located on the beach, with stunning views of Samui. The dishes on our delicious menu are made only from fresh and local produce. Found along the Ban Tai Road on the Island paradise of Koh Phangan, it is the perfect place for a romantic meal. Treat yourself. We pride ourselves on our relaxed atmosphere and have a volley ball court on the beach.

“Jewel in the crown”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Fish At Thips is a wonderful and authentic little Thai seafood restaurant, serving delicious home cooked Thai staples. We've just eaten there for the second night in a row and are already planning our next visit, which, given that we only have another 3 nights on this island, tells you all you need to know about high highly we rate this place. From the second you step foot in the restaurant you are made to feel very welcome and it is a delight to see the open kitchen busying away. The lovely women who work there (it may be a coincidence but both nights we were there we didn't see a man involved in proceedings) really give it a homely feel and we genuinely felt like we were the guests in someone's home. Food wise, it was all tasty; the first night we had tempura prawns and veg, veggie spring rolls, chicken satay and pad thai. All were beautifully cooked and portion size was spot on. We washed it all down with multiple strawberry daiquiris. This evening's meal followed largely the same format, although we subbed in some calamari, a Tom Yum soup exploding with flavour and a succulent and very generous portion of BBQ sea bass. Again, a delicious meal, this time accompanied by a very reasonable (both in taste and price) bottle of rosé. We can't speak highly enough of this place and, after a rather dubious dining experience in Haad Rin on night 1, this has restored our faith in the island and it's culinary potential. If the message has not come through loud enough or clear enough yet, let me finish by spelling it out: go here, you won't regret it

“Great food!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We had the deep fried seabass and soft shell crab, was incredible! Really good amounts of food for the price, which is definitely not the cheapest on the island but still felt like good value for money. When we were there it was relatively quiet and the service was quick and friendly. One of the best decorated restaurants on the island too. Definitely worth trying out, and will definitely go back!

“Great place, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We went to Fish at Thip's twice and enjoyed both visits. The food is good and served very elegantly. There's a lot to choose from. I loved the interior decoration and the view is great.

“Great fish dishes”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The place is really nice (you have a look to the sea) and unconventional. The food and the shakes were excellent, however we do not recommend the wine.
The service was ok, but not outstanding.
