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.

One of my favourite meals of my 1 month trip! Came here twice. First of all the service was incredible, everyone was very smiley and kind. The fruit juices were fresh and delicious. We both had the red Thai curry on the first night and...the massaman curry on the second night. Both dishes were absolutely incredible. Wish I could go back and eat them again. We also had some coconut Ice cream which was lovely. Overall, do not miss this restaurant in Ko Samui.More

A fantastic, friendly and family-run Thai restaurant - food arrives quickly and is freshly cooked. This restaurant sits back from the main road behind Chewang Beach, so is a little protected from the traffic noise. Seating is available inside and outside as well as upstairs....I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. I have been there with my family many times and we are always happy to return. Thank you.More

Have been eating our way through the menu both in 2022 & 2024. Have yet to find a dish that is not fresh, flavourful and worth a repeat.

Amazing thai food! We had to visit twice during our holiday because it was so good. Our favourite place to eat in koh samui. Not the biggest restaurant but only had to wait once and was definitely worth it. We tried a few dishes and...it was great value for money. Our favourites were pad Thai & massaman curry! Staff very friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend!More

Small place just at the beginning of Chaweng Road but nothing like the tourist traps in the area. Authentic Thai food at affordable prices! The green curry with chicken is to die for! Service was quick and attentive. Unfortunately we went there in our last...day on Koh Samui but if we were to come back to the island we will dine there again!More

We ate here twice. Food was fresh and good. Service was prompt and professional. You can bring your own wine for a minimal corkage fee. The shrimp egg rolls and fried shrimp starters were very good. You can indicate the spice level desired for your...dishes. Prices very reasonable.More

Exceptional service and food at this clean, hygienic and very professional Royal Thai restaurant. Definitely worth visiting and a drive out of your way. English menu was useful. Tom Yam Goong exceptional, as was Som Tam and Sticky Mango Rice. Chicken in Pandan leaves a...knockout with delicious dip and perfectly cooked (skin on chicken was crisped). Pad Thai with Pork was too sweet for my taste, too few bean sprouts, and garnishing. Definitely worth a revisit. Well done Chef! Best Thai food on Koh Samui.More

Food was fresh and very tasty. Authentic Thai. Worth a bit of a wait. We had fried ribs (very different), chicken and cashews, fried noodles with pork and stir fried vegetables. All excellent.

A steady stream of people trying to get seated as early as 5pm was a good indication that this was going to be good, and it was!.. Mango salad so fresh but spicy set the tone. The yellow pork curry was one of the best...dishes we’ve had so far on this trip.More

I visit this restaurant every time I go to Samui, and it never disappoints. It looks a bit bigger than the last time, they seems to have expanded it a bit. The spring rolls and the Pad Thai were tasty. Great service with a smile...from Chow! Prices only a little bit higher than pre-covid.More
