Description: Poppies Restaurant is the most established beachside dining Venus on Samui. Featuring Thai and International dining in a gorgeous setting, Poppies is a musts when visiting Koh Samui. An interesting twist is that you can now enter the restaurant via the Hidden Passage, an underground tunnel that serves as a delivery entrance by day and a historic walk through the Poppies 44 year history by night. You even get to see the kitchen, meet the Chef and have a complimentary snack! Pick Poppies today for Lunch or Dinner and experience it for yourself!

Fantastic all round experience. We entered the restaurant through a secret passage and was told the story of Poppies. Then was given a small parcel of flavours wrapped in an edible leaf. Given a lovely table where we could hear the waves lapping on the shore. Food was fantastic, delicious flavours that we haven't experienced before. Try the prawns with chilli and basil. Staff were faultless. Complimentary chocolate liquor at the end. ++++++++++++

The restaurant is in the perfect setting on Chaweng beach with table available on the beach. The staff are very attentive and friendly and the food is out of this world and very reasonably priced.
If you visit make sure to enter via the front of the hotel for an additional surprise!

Poppies was referred to us as a must do and certainly is. This is a great setting, very unusual, quite quaint. A stroll through the gardens alongside the creek and through the olde world style buildings of the resort. The restaurant enjoys great beach and sea views and the food is exquisite.
Great meal, great setting.... memorable!

Thank goodness I'm not the only one who finds this place wholly overrated! We holiday in Samui at least once a year and without getting on my pedestal, I enjoy cooking and have experienced a heck of Thailand. How this place has the audacity to charge what they do & for very average food is ridiculous. Appreciate taste is subjective but really....If you know your Thai, try other places in Chaweng and experience what is very good and what is average. Don't get ripped off. Enjoy.

Dear Skywards,

Your review does not provide any specifics about what dishes you ordered?

Your review is not typical to the type of feedback we receive, and I would have certainly appreciated knowing a few of the details of your experience.

We employ a Guest Relations Manager who speaks with every guest every night, and this review is a huge surprise to both of us.

We would appreciate it if you would reach out to us via our website with some details or at least some specifics of your experience.

We value solid feedback and we improve by receiving it openly. This generic review does little to assist us in improving our standards, which are very important to us.

In the Spirit of Hospitality,

James
