Good food, great atmosphere. Although limited options for vegetarian/vegan and menu is difficult to alter with staff.

Excellent food, freshly prepared. Staff extremely friendly, although at first glance there are only a few vegetarian options on the menu, when I asked they were happy to convert meals. A wide choice of traditional and English food. Very convenient if you're diving/staying at simple life.

I wouldn't recommend it, the servitrices doesn't no English, and there was plastic, hair, and tin foil in 1 of our 8 dishes, 1 dish took over an hour to make, and they didn't understand it should be without any sort of dressing. They did give some money off and and let us not pay for the dish with all... More

Came here for a couple of drinks... found the staff to be very helpful and honest... Our waiter told me to wait 10 minutes to advantage of the happy hour prices on cocktails. The prices were very reasonable anyway!!! Didn't have food, but it looked delicious and plenty of people seemed to finish off their plates!!

We visited this restaurant twice for dinner during our short stay in Koh Tao, because we enjoyed their Thai cuisine and seafood dish. It's close to several big dive shops, so the location was very convenient for us to walk to after a day of diving. The fish we ordered (red snapper or black snapper) was fresh and cheap, and...

Definitely worth going here for happy hour (with a view) and then staying on if you are looking for pizza or pasta. Prices are ok, portions acceptable. Staff is relatively friendly (though it tends to forget customers who are sitting further away).

We came here for all you can eat pizza buffet for 220 bhat a person. It was good as lots of sport on and a good atmosphere, but the pizza does come very slowly. One slice every 15 minutes, so just be prepared for a long meal.

The staff in Simple Life are very kind. Joking and playing around with the kids. Their Thai food was very tasty and cheap - foreign dishes a little more expensive and less tasty. Biggest drawback was the semi-loud music. We had dinner there three times during our 6 days visit nearby. (group of 11 - 6 adults, 5 children)
