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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a wonderful dining experience! The staff were incredibly friendly and attentive, making us feel right at home. The service was impeccable, and the food was outstanding. We opted for Thai dishes, and the spice levels were perfectly tailored to our individual tastes. The...restaurant was very clean, and the drinks were excellent, with safe water and ice. Overall, it was great value for money. Highly recommended!More

Had a lovely night here. Good staff, good service, good food. Four of us ate and all had Thai food which was delicious. The menu is extensive with Thai, Asian and European etc. Something for all tastes. Certainly worth going for a night. We will...definitely go back while here on holiday.More

What a fabulous meal we had at The Mother in Chong Mon. Tasty Thai cuisine with fresh ingredients. Well priced and we even had a complimentary dessert which was the icing on the proverbial cake. Would definitely recommend

An absolute Thai classic In cheong Mon, Koh Samui, great selection of Thai and western dishes and have tried a fair selection over the years. Friendly staff that make you feel welcome and very time that keeps you coming back time and time again.

Wonderful food. Great service and very affordable. The staff could not have been nicer. Try the chicken cashew 10/10. I’ll be back.

I had a lovely lobster here and my wife fell in love with the Tom num soup, all the food was so tasty and we ate 3/4 times. The staff are lovely and always engage as much as they can with their limited English, but...there English is a lot better than my Thai 😀 . Can’t recommend it highly enoughMore

After eating out in multiple Thai restaurants in the last week, this was the most disappointing. The Red Thai curry had little to no flavour and the Massaman curry tasted more like chicken Satay. Service was quick but not attentive and it was reasonably priced....Unfortunately we would not go back.More

This restaurant is worth visiting. All of the personnel paid a lot of attention to every customer. I visited it with my family and all dishes were served simultaneously. If you don't want spicy food you can gently ask and food will be not spicy....The owner works as a servant himself when a lot of customers come to visit this place. He and his wife show great appreciation to every customer. Food is tasty and not expensive, although a lot of customers come every evening to visit "The Mother" food gets served very fast.More

The best prawns in the world. Order from the back of the menu and order loads because it’s great. We stayed in Koh Samui for a week and went back here twice because it’s amazing. The service is amazing, the beers cold as ice, the...food is unreal and Chai is the absolute best. I’m so sorry I didn’t come to watch the Arsenal vs Liverpool game with you, please forgive me, I’ll see you next yearMore

Fantastic restaurant with friendly pleasant staff. We ate here twice whilst on holiday and the Thai food was amazing. The food was really tasty, flavoursome and very well priced. I'd recommend the Thai food more than the western food.

We were recommended this restaurant by our Hotel Driver (Krod from Meliã Koh Samui) and it became a firm staple for our evening dinners. There is enough on the menu to vary your meals throughout the week. Service is attentive, loyalty and returning customers remembered...to add a personal welcome. The food is delicious, served quickly and is great value. They are wary of the spice levels and will always ask so you are not caught off guard. We ate here most nights and should we return to Koh Samui and the Choeng Mon area, we will definitely be returning to The Mother.More
