“Good currys on Koh Tao”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We only tried the currys and some starters and they were all delicious. The portions were a bit smaller and pricier than at other restaurants on the island (one needs two portions of rice for a curry), but worth it. Their delivery service is great, though!

“Friendly Service Nice Thai Food Many Pets”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Thai food here was delicious and the service super friendly (like everyone in Koh Tao). The prices were reasonable and the seating outside. All enjoyed. They have many dogs there as well, but they don't beg for food. So, it adds to the laid back atmosphere. Oh, and you can see the kitchen! Watch them cook!

“Steaks cooked to perfection! ”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

My partner had been travelling for a month and he was craving for a steak...one that felt like home. This was his favourite meal the whole time travelling!!

Service excellent both wait and bar staff, atmosphere was great, plus we got to hang with our awesome dive instructor!

“Tasty”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Got the duck breast curry and it was literally the best duck breast curry I've ever had. It was also the only one iLife ever had. But, based on this experience, I'd get it again. Everyone else's meals were good, too--above average Thai food, especially for the island. Prices were in the $5 range.
