“Brilliant people brilliant music best bar in Bophut!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

My wife and I stumbled upon Nam and Mem's family run bar last Friday when the street market was on. It was full but space was quickly made for us and we joined everyone else having a great time with Max the guitar player who managed to say hi to everyone and include many in his songs!

Since last Friday we have been back everyday and will keep doing so as these guys have created such a friendly bar with amazing value for money service that it is easily the best place we have been in on this holiday and I don't just mean in Bophut.

If you are here and like good people music food and drinks then you must go!

“Home from Home!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

This small bar, eatery is run by Nam and Mem and their 10 year old son. I cannot praise them enough, at the end of our two weeks it was like visiting family. So welcoming, fantastic cocktails and excellent food and reasonable prices. Always a smile and our one drink turned into ' late nighters'. Looking at previous reviews Nam has moved bars to the bottom of the village but still great atmosphere especially Friday nights when he has music on. If there is one place to visit on Bophut, this is the place.

“Best bar in Bophut”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

If you want to be in a friendly and relaxed bar you have found the place. Freedom Way Bar is owned by Nam and he is a truly genuine guy. And he has alot of stories to tell. Drinks are great and if he has the time and you are welcoming to him, you will end up with him at your table having the greatest time. Ignore all the bars in Fishermans Village, this is the best place to go if you want a good relaxing time. The staff Lilly is a great person also. And on fridays they have live music, I miss the place already.

“Great food, friendly management, nicely priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

I have eaten at all of the local, more affordable restaurants in fishermans village now and freedom way is by far the best. The chicken wings and massaman curry are amazing!!!!!

There is a good selection of drinks and food options and the manager is one of the friendliest guys ive ever met! TRY IT OUT!!!

“Fantastic food, cocktails & service on the beach. What more could you want?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

This place is awesome. We went here numerous times during our stay in Samui in March, and each time we loved it. Nam the owner is so friendly, makes amazing cocktails, the food was very tasty and the location right on the beach is awesome! Sit at the bar with your feet in the sand or find a table and do the same. Absolutely loved it, will be back again for sure! If your in the area do yourself a favour and visit Nam, you will not be disappointed!! Thanks for some great nights Nam! Nick & Lucy
