Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

During our travels through Thailand, including Bangkok and Chiang Mai, we found Noi Friendly Restaurant in Koh Samui to offer exceptional value. Unlike many surrounding beach clubs, the prices here are unbeatable for the quality of food and service. We started with the rich Tom...Kha Gai (Chicken Coconut Soup), fresh Papaya Salad, and perfectly grilled Chicken Satay Skewers. For dessert, the Mango Pancake with Coconut Ice Cream and Deep Fried Ice Cream were delightful. The Mojito and Pina Colada cocktails were refreshing. The genuine friendliness and attentiveness of the staff stood out, providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere. In comparison to other beach clubs we visited, which offered nice surroundings but often fell short in value and service, Noi Friendly Restaurant was unmatched. The staff were genuinely nice people, and their attentive service felt authentic, unlike the pseudo-faked service we've experienced elsewhere. Upon our arrival, they even set up a fan for us and were not pushy about serving more than we desired, always ready to help but never intrusive. We had a feast at an incredible value and thoroughly enjoyed the food and surroundings. This restaurant offers amazing food and genuine hospitality, making it a must-visit. We can't wait to return!More

Typical Thai set up for a roadside restaurant. However, the hostess was so welcoming, spoke English well, and took the order without a problem ( we have food intolerances) Food was tasty and very reasonable prices.

Amazing food. Came here 2 nights in a row after trying several other places. This was the freshest and had the most extensive menu. Really rate the Tom Yum soup, papaya salad, chicken tempura, chicken satay and the red curry with duck. Delicious. Wish we...could come againMore

Superb quality food and very good value. Tom yam soup was stunning, along with the minced pork. Spring rolls, chicken tempura, chicken pad thai - all superb. A must visit for anyone staying close to Bangrak Beach. Fully recommended (typed up on our third visit...in two days). Noi is lovely!More

Ate like kings here for less than 75euros for 4 people. The food is amazing. True Thai cuisine and plenty of it! This place gets busy and I'm not at all surprised to see people queuing to get a table. We ordered several appetizers and...a main fish course each and everything was delicious. The staff are welcoming and great fun. There was a real mix of clientele, families, singles, couples, groups from across the globe. Aside from keeping up with the restaurant orders, Noi's has a thriving take out service that was non stop. We'll worth the stop if your looking for great Thai dishes at an unbelievable price.More

Spacious restaurant under cover but allows the breeze to come through. I ordered shrimp cakes and one of their specials being green curry with shrimp and rice as well as a pineapple shake. Nothing to complain about.

I will be back regularly for sure and cant wait to sample other dishes...More
