“Loved Krua”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

There are a lot of restaurants to choose from in Bophut, but we ended up eating here twice. Good Thai food. Yes they are catering to tourists so the prices are not rock bottom. However the food seemed pretty authentic and the ambience was great. My husband had a white snapper dish that he said was "life changing"!

“Nice place, good food”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

The restourant is gourgeus but the beach patio is even better. Very romantic atmosphere. The staff is fast and in particular one of them has a very good english. In the menu the spicy courses are marked and it's easy to understand. The food was good, we had noodles, soup and white snapper. All well cooked and well presented. Average price for the zone and the quality.

I don't stay in Bophut when I visit Samui but I always head into Fisherman's Village for an evening - and one of the main reasons, apart from the fact the area is a wonderfully chilled and laid-back antridote to Chaweng, is this restaurant. The food is consistently fine (the Penang Beef Curry, especially so, as is the Tempura Prawn starter), the service excellent and it represents good value for money. The tables on the lower level (overlooking the beach) are a delight, rendering you instantly relaxed, and are ideal for a group dinner, family meal or a perfect romantic setting. Highly recommended.

This is our second visit in a row to this restaurant, which speaks for itself.

We were first recommended by 3 different people about this place saying that it is the best restaurant in Fishermans Village.

I would agree. Food is great, service also good, menu is very reasonable.

We had 3 starters, 2 mains , 2 large bottles of water, and a bottle of wine for just shy of 3000 bht which for an outstanding meal and on the beach setting is peanuts.

Service with a smile and clean toilets is always a good sign. Also had a peek roubd the kitchen when paying via Amex (they accept) spotless.

“Excellent Thai Food”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The thai food in this restaurant was superb and the service was very very good as well, if you want a decent thai curry and a decent portion of food then go to this restaurant.
