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.

Wow what a find! My husband and I were staying at the palm leaf almost next door (quiet end of Sairee Beach) and reserved a table on our first evening. The staff were welcoming and attentive, the food was delicious and beautifully presented and the...location had an amazing view. I hope more people find this little gem as there was hardly anyone else there when we went. Please try it - we highly recommend it.More

We enjoyed our meals here at Rim Lae Restaurant in Koh Tao. We enjoyed 2 breakfasts and 1 lunch and all the meals were superb. The menu was extensive and featured Western and Thai cuisine choices. And the service was extremely friendly and polite which...was lovely to witness. But the real star here was the decor and ambiance of the place which was nestled amidst the large rocks and surrounding foliage which resulted in a peaceful and serene meal experience while overlooking the beach. We would not hesitate to return again here in the future.More

We had a couple of lunches at this place during our stay in Koh Tao, the view from this restaurant was amazing and the staff was super friendly! The food was great, especially the sticky rice with mango! Highly recommended!

The menu initially caused some concern as there is just so much on it. But when the food arrived we were utterly pleased. While certainly no experts on Thai cuisine, we liked the preparation, presentation and certainly the taste of all dishes. We found the...sea bass baked in a salt crust particularly enchanting. As Thai food can sometimes be on the very spicy side, we appreciated that different sauces were separate allowing us to gauge the spice level.More

Food was very average. *Terrible Club Sandwich - bacon was all fat and it was smothered with ketchup and mayonnaise on top of the bread. All you can taste is mayo and Ketchup. *Worst Chicken cashew nut stir-fry I found a bug of some sort...in the chicken.More

Elegant restaurant snuggled away in a lovely corner of Sairee. For a more upmarket restaurant with beautiful decor and gorgeous sea views you cannot beat this gem of a place. Great to get away from the hustle and bustle of loud music and fire dancing....Nice selection of foods and drink Very clean and service efficientMore

These people saw my pregnant wife fall into a filthy unlit pool at the entrance and refused to give her a towel to dry off because it was against policy. I could see towels behind the bar but they only gave us small paper napkins....I've never been more angry in my life.More

The view is great. The food is good/solid thai but nothing special. Same thai you get anywhere at the beach. Was a bit dissaponted to be honest but probably had to high expectations.

The restaurant is a dream come true. The setting, view, decor are all impeccable. The food however, could be better. Nothing went wrong, it was all just okay. I guess what I'm saying is that the food given any other location would be great, but...given the setting I had higher expectations. I would not avoid the hotel restaurant, just dont expect the food to blow your taste buds away like the view dies your sight.More

We went here one night during our short stay in Ko Tao and we were blown away.. It's right at the end of the Ko Tao beach if you keep heading right... The staff were very friendly and it's the best looking restaurant we went...to in Ko Tao. 100% would recommend it to anyone. Lovely Thai food & amazing setting!More

We are here twice and the food was sub par at best; though service was friendly which was a nice change from what we experienced on Koh Tao.
