“Fantastic food and great hospitality”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Visited here for food and drinks after reading recommendations and were not disappointed. It's on the 'main road' but once seated we relaxed and enjoyed the delicious food and drinks that were served to us by the friendly staff. Food was so good we went back again and service was always excellent! Mojitos served here were my favourite, so good. We will definitely return here when we next visit Samui.

“Fantastic spring rolls here”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stopped here for a couple of beers and then got hungry and wanted something light to eat and ordered the spring rolls. They were beautiful. Quite spicy and really tasty. Ordered a second lot. Didn't get to try anything else but I am pretty sure the food would be good based on the spring rolls.

“Super Thai”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

We tried the Orchid based on good TA reviews & were happy we did. This small n relaxed restaurant served us one of the best Thai Curries that we've ever tasted. Over all quality n service is very good. Will be back next year for more tasty Thai.

“No frills good local food”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We went there followinf the good reviews from tripadvisor. The food came really quick, was tasty and nicely decorated. The atmosphere isn't great as it is right next to the main strip with ad trucks rolling by every minute and generally lots of cars. Apart from that all good!

Thankyou for taking the time to write this review. Also thankyou for writing an honest review.

About those advertising trucks, really nothing i can do about them. Although they are not all night every night. Some of our customers like to sit in the front seats and soak up the atmosphere from the street. But i totally understand you if you didn't. It's more relaxing to sit inside the restaurant.
