We were recommended to this restaurant from a staff member at our resort (Le Meridien) down the road. Honestly, if they had not recommended us, we would have never known about this restaurant's existence. It is very small and a bit hidden away but once you realise it's there - WOW! The food is absolutely fantastic. Nice, traditional thai food... More

First of all, Imchai, the owner of the restaurant is one of the sweetest people I've meet in Thailand. The food is really really good, and the portions are huge. And it is also very cheap. It is my go to place here in Thailand. Been here more than 40 times, and I've never been dissapointed.

Not bad, but definitely can't understand the great rantings overall. Solid choice for Thai food, not more and not less.

This place is not fancy but has excellent food and cheap prices. We ate here twice we loved it so much , we paid $20 for dinner for two of us. Also they do take away as well. Very friendly and inviting. I ordered the pepper crab it was excellent.

For local thai food, this was average. I ordered mine spicy (ordered in Thai) and it came out very mild - maybe what they believe is spicy for a farang. I had to add my own chili powder etc to my dish to make it taste better. The size was also small but fit the cost. There were some "big"... More

Really great authentic Thai food, very kind staff and prices to match. Without doubt the best food we had in Koh Samui.
