A very typical restaurant experience in Koh Samui. Food is ok (lack of flawor) and the service is somewhat lacking in terms of service and common sense. Worth a visit if you're not looking for anything fancy.

We ate here one lunch time, the food was bland and unexciting. compared with other Thai meals that we had during our stay this was definitely the least good. Prices were reasonable, but the Thai food from the nearby Irish bar was better.

Based on the reviews we had been really looking forward to this but it was very disappointing. We had the (New Year's Eve) five course taster menu which was reasonably priced at 1,100 baht - not including drinks (their normal taster menus are around the...More
