Description: Rellocated from Cheongmon Area on the 21st of June 2015, Msafiri still retains its family-run restuarant feel , now located on the main street ( road 4169) next to Oriental Living furniture shop on the Maenam/Bophut border. The restuarant features quaint dining areas on the patio as well as out in the garden and gazebo area and still offers a sumptious selection of Indian Food. With more than 50 assorted indian dishes, lovers of indian food whether vegetarian or non-vegetarian will be spoilt for choice. The food is prepared by our highly experienced indian chef with traditional indian masalas.Whether you like your food mild or super hot, its made to match the palate. Come and discover why we are Koh Samui's best kept indian culinary secret. We also offer a small selection of western food, including our Signature Msafiri Monster Burger which comes in Pork and Chicken varieties ( Due to our respect for Hindu culture, we are unable to serve Beef). An all-day American Farmhouse breakfast is also available served from 9.30 am with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine.

Bear with me - this restaurant is not easy to find but do make the effort as its well worth it.
The listing of this restaurant as Bophut is misleading - actually it is located in Choeng Mon.
The restaurant is housed in a building in the Absolute Resort [it used to be called Q Signature - this is another confusion in the listing] - the road access to the resort is under an archway at the east end of choeng mon village next to the Boat House Hotel.
If you go to the Absolute reception area and ask for the indian restaurant they will take you up the hill in a golf buggy.

The seating area of the restaurant is on the roof and in the evening it is charmingly lit. At sunset there is a fantastic view over Choeng Mon bay and later twinkling lights from the hill opposite and if you're lucky a fireworks display.

The menu is extensive and the food absolutely mouthwatering. This visit we enjoyed tender lamb palak [with spinach] tasty rogan josh and very spicey chicken jalfrezi but one previous occasions we have always had freshly cooked and tasty food.

The service is friendly and helpful and the drinks menu also extensive.

We were surprised not to find the restaurant busier but maybe this is partly explained by the lack of signage and also the listing misnomers identified above.

All we can recommend is; go on a small adventure to find this out of the way gem and have a delightful evening.

sincere apologies for writing the review a little too late.. We had stayed on a vacation at Q Signature about 2 years back. We were very reluctant to visit this place to get Indian-vegetarian food. Being an Indian and from Gujurati Jain community, it is essential to eat food at the right place. And my personal experience has been very difficult to find good Indian food in Thailand. But i should tell you, after our first reluctant visit to msafiri, we were practically having our lunch and dinners over here. the cooks, waiters were all very nice and courteous and special recommendation goes to its owner Mr. Brian. He made us feel at home and dished out several delicacies for my wife. I give special recommendation to check out this place. Superb food, nice people and awesome ambience on the roof-top.

We stayed at the Q Signature hotel where this restaurant is so we thought we'd give it a try. The food was lovely as was the service.

Western prices but that is generally the way when it comes to restaurants within hotels.

Would definitely recommend anyone in the area to pay a visit and sit on the rooftop.

My wife and I love good Indian Food and when we found this restaurant whilst staying at Q Signature, we were a little apprehensive as to how it would turn out. We were very pleasantly surprised. The location upstairs has an excellent view. The service was very friendly and spoke good english. The menu had a very good variety and lots of choice that you would expect in a top class Indian restaurant. We had samosas followed by chicken jalfresi, dahl, and bread. The quality of the food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. We will definitely go back for another meal before leaving the island.

We recently spent 2 weeks at Q Signature Resort. We love local Thai food but when we found Msafiri Indian Restaurant we were won over. We ate there most days, either for lunch or dinner.
The food was delish...and the staff were super friendly.
We highly recommend this restaurant..and of course the view is superb.
