Had many dinners and cocktails here and service and food are incredible. My favourite was BBQ fish followed by BBQ crab, followed by BBQ prawns.

We walked along the beach to look for a dinner restaurant and found this nice little place. We had a great dinner for a cheap price directly at the beach with a beautiful view over tbe islands and the sunset. The restaurant is family owned and we felt so welcomed and hearty treated that we returned in total 5 times during our holiday. Once they ordered shark just for us and it was more than delicious. But all dishes we tryed were soooo good. Try the white snapper in garlic pepper - one of our favourites! A super cute special is the infant son from the owners :) this little sunshine made our stays even more good as they've anyways been. Thank you very much for the great times and if we are back at koh samui we will definitely visit you again!

We walked along the beautiful beach and came across this gem of a place at lunchtime. The owner, Khun Oil, greeted us warmly and settled us to a table where we could admire the spectacular view of the ocean. She is a delight - happy, smiling and gracious - and allowed my teenage daughters to play with her infant sun while her mother, Som, prepared delicious fruit shakes for us.

The food was quickly prepared by her oil's husband, Boy, and was tasty and excellent value. We had continuously cheerful service from both Oil and Som, both of whom were keen to make us happy in any way they could, and who practiced their English on us.

We really felt welcome here - so much so that we returned again the next day! This is a family operation where one can easily feel welcomed as a family member. The food is great basic Thai and we were extremely impressed with how reasonable the bills ere on both occasions.

Try it - you won't be disappointed!

Very basic decor, bare walls, sand floor but good honest food at very cheap prices. Flavours of all dishes were excellent and even the farang dishes for my young children were well cooked. Don't come here for a romantic meal in plush surrounding but if you want a value for money meal with pleasant service then you wont be disappointed.

We tried this place out as it is just down the road from another good restaurant. Delicious and tasty cheap food with a large menu. We had the spring rolls, panang curry, chicken and cashew stirfry, and fried rice. All meals took a long time to arrive but that was the only negative. Highly recommend but if it's busy be prepared to wait a while. It's by the beach and nice to relax.
