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.

Probably not the cheapest thai food on the island but probaly the best thai food on the island. Great kitchen, big portions, friendly service, relaxing ambiance and music to watch the sunset. Red curry with pork neck was outstanding.

Indoor seating for more of a restaurant experience or casual outdoor beach tables with the water lapping at your feet for more of a casual vibe. The food was great and considering the setting, well priced

The place to come for Kao Soi chicken. Agree entirely. Super tasty and 220 baht a plate. Also had fried chicken with cashews a couple of cocktails and 3 beers. Seating on the sand. Excellent service. Only comment/criticism is that there were small tables so...a squeeze for 3 it would be hell for 4.More

Rip off! Food was good, view is amazing, but watch out! I ordered a Tanqueray Gin Tonic (280 Baht) The guy who took my order either didn't speak English well enough or wasn't listening. When the check came I saw that they had charged me...for a Hendricks gin tonic (400 baht) since I had three gin tonic over the whole night I had to pay 360 baht extra. When I told them that I ordered Tanqueray and not Hendricks, the lady was just 'oh, we so sorry. Our mistake!' I said: 'yeah very expensive mistake at my end here' she said: 'we so sorry' and that was it. No offer for a compensation for next or offering me to take down at least one of the drinks from the bill. NEVER AGAIN!More

Nice view. Excellent food and drinks. Mojito and the seafood was amazing. Be prepared though the service is absolutely abysmal. You wont get a table or have your order taken unless you claw for it (yes, even if there is only 3 others in the...restaurant). I would have spent more but it takes 30 minutes trying to flag a waiter and another 30+ minutes to get your item.More

We came here on our last night and booked a sea view table and we were so happy we did! We actually went here for the Khoa Soi as we were craving it on our last night. It was delish!! The drinks / wine menu...was also really extensive and the service was excellent. An excellent choice for last meal as a couple in Thailand.More

You must visit this restaurant! The food is just superb! On the pricey end but worth every Baht! You have to try the salmon, curries and the Ceviche! The atmosphere is awesome and customer service !

We ate here twice while we were staying in Koh Tao and really enjoyed our meal both times. Great location on Sairee Beach with a gentle breeze to cool us down as we were eating. The prawns in tamarind were so delicious and my partner...loved the chicken roti which was full of flavour. The second time we went we had the pork neck curry and a beef Thai salad. Both were quite spicy and so tasty. The staff were really nice and helpful. We will definitely eat here again when we come back to Koh Tao.More

Great views, nice food and a nice laidback atmosphere! The restaurant is located right in the heart of Sairee Beach where all the fun happens. Great place to have a relaxed dinner before heading out to your next affairs.

Located right on the beach, this place serves great Thai and western food. The Tom Yum Goong was one of the best I had since quite some time, its taste perfectly balanced, very spicy but not overwhelmingly so, not sugary and with just the right...amount of lime juice, so that its presence was almost unnoticeable. The seafood plate for two was great: fresh seafood (prawns, shrimps, tuna, squid and some veggies) served with a tasty Thai sauce and honey mustard mayo. The menu includes and interesting wine list and desserts ranging from cheese cakes to the Thai evergreen "mango and sticky rice". The staff is very friendly and prices very reasonable.More

How many ways can a venue be spectacular? Atmosphere? Fitout? Food? Drink? Service? Playlist? Views? Whitening hits it out of the park with all of them. Atmosphere: From the outside and the inside, this venue would be as welcome on the beaches of Miami, Ibiza,...Santorini or Goa. Clean, white lines, breezy flow in floorplan and air, it exudes style and comfort. It was great to be in. Fitout: As soon as we sat down, the first thing my wife said was "These are the most comfortable chairs I've been in in a restaurant. And they stayed that way for the next 2 hours. The tables, lighting, tableware, all of it - massaged the senses. The food: Exceeded our expectations, and we had high expectations. Generous serves of fantastic quality. It is common for places like this to have you leaving hungry because they are more into style than substance. Not here. One suggestion to management - we walked past Whitening a number of times and didn't come in because of the photos of the food on the menu outside the restaurant. The photos look like they're styled for a gourmet magazine - giant plates with tiny portions and dots of flavoured oils - and do not do justice the real experience. PLEASE replace them with photos of the actual food you serve, and no-one will be walking past. As for price, it's not your 100baht cheapy roadside diner. Mains are 300+baht, and still worth every one. Drinks: Creative and don't skimp on the booze like many places on the island. Service: We have been disappointed with the service at every place on Koh Tao that isn't your basic family Thai restaurant, and were hoping there would be good service here. There is. The staff are well trained, attentive (they notice when your drink is empty and pay attention to your plates). Other places on the island trying to serve this level could get some pointers from here. Playlist: The music was so awesome - like Chemical Brothers are the DJ. I asked what the playlist was on Spotify or Apple so I could play it at home. I was told the owner selected the music. It shows the level of detail hat has been put into the concept. I think you get it. If you want an amazing experience - go. My only regret is we paid attention to the photos on the menu and didn't come here every week for the month we were on Koh Tao.More

Great food in walking street in koh Tao. If you are looking for Thai Food go for the curries, specially the S.T. Sour Curry which is a souther fish curry speciality, be aware it is very spicy. Brownie is nothing special. The staff, specially the...Burma waiters are very nice.More

Staff were very accommodating, food was fab & drinks were great. We ate on the beach and whilst the sun was clouded over it was still lovely. We had the flaming bbq seafood platter (which was very fresh) and a few glasses of wine. It...is probably a bit on the more expensive side but it was worth it. Would highly recommended checking it out if you want to see a sunset.More

They advertise gluten free options, but had no idea what gluten free meant. They all consulted and we finally agreed for a chicken breast with asparagus. The food was good. The service didn’t match this. They advertise credit card on their menu but charge 7%...‘vat’ and then also add a service charge on top.More
