This a must do. Try the duck dumplings and chicken pie. UNBELIEVABLE. We have been here a week and already eaten there twice. Just amazing.

We have been there with some friends, choose the restaurant by tripadvisor. We came at 9,20, the restaurant was quite full. Tried mussaman curry, green curry and some others dishes- it was good enough, but quite expensive. Staff is nice, but doesn't speak English well.

This is a locally owned and run restaurant. The owner is Amazing and a very talented chef. It is small so reservations are recommended for evenings. We always go early with no problem. You will enjoy it so much you will be back time and time again.

We wandered over here hoping all the 5 star reviews to be true. Ambiance is tacky - but hey never judge a book by its cover. We ordered two starters, the Duck dumplings with Yellow Curry Sauce and the Chicken Green Curry Pie. The Dumplings were crispy and delicious. The pie - I am not sure what all the fuss... More

We ate here two years ago whilst staying here in Koh Samuel with friends. We loved it so much we had dinner twice in a week and couldn't wait to revisit this time. Vivian, the owner, really cares about his customers. The food is delicious, menu is innovative and I would thoroughly recommend a visit. We loved the chicken pie... More

This is an absolute gem of a restaurant. Not something you would immediately see and think I must go there, in fact it is very discreet and modest and located on the busy ring road. Don't let that put you off though. This little restaurant which is owned and run by Vivian is absolutely brilliant. Not fine dining, not cheap... More

On our recent visit to Bophut we managed to eat here three times. Vivian is so welcoming and makes you feel like a best friend within minutes. We had been here three years ago and in most instances I wouldn't venture back but Cafe 69 is the exception... I'd go every night if I could. The chicken curry pot pie... More

Whoever is cooking here is very talented - the food is delicious and the cocktails are very nice. Great decor, on the main road so not much of a view but a great place to visit.
