Anyone who knows Chaweng will understand that you can be overwhelmed by the choice of places to eat. This is our third trip to Samui and we always find ourselves returning to The Orchid, for a number of reasons, chiefly the consistently excellent food, but also value, location and atmosphere, enhanced by Andy's quiet, unobtrusive but genuine welcome. Andy, the host, is an authority on Samui and a very willing advocate for other venues and attractions. The new bar addition to the restaurant is a superb spot to wind down and watch the world go by. Superb Thai curries, amazing pork spare ribs and yummy banana pancakes! Very drinkable wine by the glass, carafe or bottle. A little gem, highly recommended.

We ate here 4 times during a 10 night stay in Koh Samui in September 2013. The thai food was amazing (we didn't try the international food from the menu). We tried different dishes each of the 4 times and we never disappointed. The portion sizes were smaller than some of the other restaurants but still more than enough to fill you up. The prices were very reasonable too. Friendly staff who remembered us after we visited the first time.

Really enjoyed the food.
Ate here twice as food was so nice and good value for money. Services was really friendly.
Enjoyed the banter with the co-owner about football - he was a Leicester fan though - not his fault I guess!

This was our most regular eating place. We were here in 2010 and were so pleased that Winnie was still there. It has had a few changes made to make it larger and when it's full obviously you have a longer wait for food but we were never ever disappointed and it's the friendliest place ever. Looking forward to our next visit.
