“Best Pad Thai ever”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 via mobile

Hands down best Pad Thai I have ever had and it's not even debatable. Chicken fried rice was also the best I had during my 2 week stay in Thailand. Very cheap meals with incredible flavor. Do not sleep on this place.

“Great food, price and service”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

When staying in Koh Samui we ate at Lek several times and ordered many of the dishes they were all very good and very reasonably priced. I would definitely go back again and recommend this to anyone. The staff also remembered us each time we went back it was lovely eating here the staff were friendly and welcoming and the food great. Meals very reasonable.

“Best food in Samui !”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

We were in Koh Samui for 2 weeks and ate here over 20 times at all times of the day
The steamed fish with Morning Glory are fantastic!
Even if its just to pop in when walking or riding past for a cool fruit shake.
Awesome. Give it a go. Peter is a good host and a great cook.

“Great cook, fresh fish, superb flavours!!!”
Reviewed 21 April 2013 via mobile

We have been going to Samui for nearly 20 years and love Thai food. We like to eat in a wide variety of restaurants both in posh hotels, fine dining restaurants and also in the locals choice. For the freshest fish and traditional Thai food we pick the locals choice every time Lec's is in the market at the Back of Chaweng beach road. The food is yummy, very flavoursome and beautifully presented Thai style. The steamed sea bass is to die for and don't be shy to ask for a spoon or bread to dip in the sauce. The cook will prepare the food to your requirements so don't worry if you can't take food too spicy. But if you can, go for it Thai style!!!
