This is an absolutely brilliant restaurant, please don't be fooled by its somewhat shabby exterior. We ate there last night and the food was amazing. We had morning glory to start, followed by a chicken red curry, a chicken with chilli and ginger, two jasmine rices and three bottles of Chang, all for 500 baht!

Now to be honest had I not read the review of this restaurant on TA we would have never eaten here. My Wife and I usually like an appealing looking restaurant as well as good food, but as previous reviewers have noted, there is a shortage of good Thai restaurants in Chaweng, so much so that the previous night we ate in Pregos (so called best Italian on the island), this was woeful and definitely style over function with well presented but incredibly bland food served in a lovely setting.
Khaw Glong is the complete opposite, modest premises definitely, but good clean authentic Thai food served with a smile that tasted amazing that was great value for money.
We will definitely be coming here again, loved it.

A great Tripadvisor recommendation. Was worth the walk to get there. Have found Koh Samui very hit and miss when it comes to Thai food. This was good food at a good price and the service was perfect. I would definitely recommend to others.

My wife and I found the food here to be very good. $5AUD each for a red curry and green curry with an ample serve of rice. It was busy, clean and decent value for money.

Cracking little family restaurant, looks more like a fish and chip shop. But my god is the food good. The chicken chilli ginger was to die for. We found this place through the reviews on here, and were more than impressed,pleasant hosts fast very tasty and cheap. Whilst we were there a larger group arrived and they wanted to sit outside the family were more than accommodating and set up a table for them. The English isn't great, but hey, how good is your Thai? :)
So good we're going back tonight.

The most amazing food. We are staying in a near by 5 star hotel but have been coming to khan glong to eat 5 star food ! This resteraunt serves flavor some honest food with quality cuts of meat (no chicken feet/sinue/bone) and fresh caught fish. We ordered the whole fish $10AU and it was so tasty and extremely fresh just amazing and visually beautiful! Anyone staying in chaweng give the fancy front resteraunts a miss with average food give this simple decor place a go 100 x better food!! From Brisbane, Australia
