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.

SERVICE IS OK and friendly. Restaurant situated on a busy street. Typical open Thai kitchen style restaurant. Disappointed with the Massaman Chicken Curry - A LOT We did go because lots of people were raving about the Massaman curry. We both found it very disappointing...😔. ° Chicken breast in one piece - cooked to death/stringy/very dry ° potato 2 halves not cut in small pieces ° FAAR TOO SWEET 🥴 up to a level I found it very unpleasant ° was not cooked fresh as it came from the back where a big pot sat on an electric stove We had many Massaman Curries over the years and I also cooked it myself. I'm afraid - this one is far off of one of our best ones. We won't go back for the Massaman curry. Curry 80 baht add 20 for rice. Only tined beer. We cannot judge the other food which is cooked fresh as we both had the MassamanMore

This place is a MUST go in Koh Tao. Don’t be put off by the minimal look, the food is amazing. The service is great and the staff are lovely. We’ve been travelling in Asia for about a month now, and this is up there...with some of the best food we’ve tasted. Chicken cashew is an amazing dish, and the whole menu is so affordable!More

I ordered the vegetable friend rice and chicken penang curry and both were so flavoursome and the veg really fresh and crunchy. I already want to go back! It was so cheap too at 190baht for all that and a Singha.

Great food at a good price. The Blue Chair was always our go to place when visiting Koh Tao. After a 4yr break we sought it out on our first day only to find it wasn't in it's usual spot. Happy days tho, googled and...located it and happy to say it is still going strong. As per usual, we had great tasty food . 😋 Friendly welcome too from the 2 lovely Ladies who work there. We have tried other places but we are never disappointed when we eat here. Rustic gem of a place.More

After roaming around Sairee shopping ,we decided to find a basic meal...however we found the Blue Chair and anything but basic Thai food.Nice little place very friendly staff,very good menu and great prices.We could have eaten a lot more,all the food was very good and...if you are in town definitely look this place up,you will find more expensive and flash places to eat, but no better food....post sunset dinner at a bargain price.More

Good food, nothing to call home about. Spice level on my red curry wasn't quite up to the standard of Thai flavors. Needed a little more kick. Nice service. The prices were a bit higher than the usual Thai cuisine, and I believe you're paying...for the ambiance more than the food. It is very good, but perhaps not excellent in my eyes.More

The pad kra pao moo had way too much Maggi in it, our fruit shakes were fine, pad Thai average. Very rare to have a Thai restaurant that only serves brown rice.

Blue chair is so fab. Not just a pretty restaurant lit by fairy lights and candles, but with a vast menu filled with delicious dishes to boot. Highly recommend the cashew nut chicken and the massaman curry. Both out of this world. Service was fantastic...also and the we couldn’t believe how cheap it was for the quality. It’s a must when in Tao!More

Incredible prices for typical Thai food. I wouldn’t say there is anything particularly special about the food but Thai food is great on its own. Staff was very friendly!
