Good authentic Thai food (yummy spicy prawn soup, and crab. Snapper with garlic and pepper nicely cooked   ). Food full of flavor , home made . Outdoor quiet setting.. The small “chalets” give a sense of privacy. Stephan the owner was nice and very welcoming. Great value for money! And even, a small swimming pool light show !

If you are after good authentic Thai food that hasn't been dummed down to suit the tourist masses, I recommend this restaurant. We ended up going two evenings in a row because we enjoyed the food so much. This us the best food we have eaten on Samui. The crab in curry powder was delicious. Compliments to the cook.

Very Authentic setting, Good traditional Thai food with no airs and graces. Stephan the owner was very nice and warm, and made us feel very much at home. If you want "home made" food in an outdoor setting then this place is great!

During a recent holiday we visited Kob Thai after reading reviews on Trip Adviser.

Following a short cab ride, we were greeted by Stephanne, the French Owner. We were showed to our table which was basically our own hut/chalet. The waitress came with the menu's and asked if we wanted drinks whilst we reviewed the menu.

The spicy prawn soup that my wife ordered for starters was fantastic, I had a starter platter but we shared the food. The soup was very spicy, as we asked, but was wonderful.

We then ordered a selection of dishes together with seafood rice. Each dish was superb, very tasty. We possibly ordered too much but the portion sizes were generous.

Stephanne checked on us a couple of times during the evening to ensure we were totally satisfied and asked if there was any area we felt he could improve on when it came time to leave.

Service was excellent without being intrusive, the food full of flavour.

I really hope the place proves a great success because the effort and quality is there even if the location is a little off the beaten track

We would not have found this without our taxi, it is off the beaten track in Lamai but worth the detour. We were greeted by the French owner who proved to be an excellent discrete but interested host all evening. Tables set under own little gazebos throughout garden, swimming pool light show adds to ambience at night and heavy rain didn't dampen spirits. We had chef recommended starter of 4 canapé type options. Tempura prawns and spring rolls excellent, chicken a tad dull and the crab cake was good. Served with dips which suited my fellow diner, I prefer more heat! A Thai green curry included peas, and other very fresh vegetables and was nicely spiced, again not too hot and Ferness and flavoursome. Snapper with garlic and pepper was nicely cooked and moist and went well with the curry. Worth the detour and about the price we have come to expect...
