“Best in a Koh Tao”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Awesome food, tried a few other Thai restaurants while we were in Koh Tao and this was the best. Very reasonable too :)

“Great food, Wonderful Shakes!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Food is delicious and well-priced. I especially enjoyed the Steak Sandwich. I loved the Coconut Shake so much, I came back for one every single day of my trip in Koh Tao (at least once)!

“Mixed review”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Spoilt for choice on a street full of like-for-like restaurants we opted for Blue Chair as it seemed fairly busy and nicely priced.

Unfortunately we found the staff to be awful. Not raising a smile despite our best efforts to be friendly, funny or helpful. Mixed reviews on the food, my uber garlicy chicken was nice, my partners penang curry passed without remark however the other two dishes (Phad Thai and Papaya Salad) remained barely touched by friends.

Its a shame. I would say purely on how bad service was, avoid this one. The fact that the food was hit of miss may also be a reason to steer clear.

“Try the Massaman Curry”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Recommended to us by the staff at New Way Diving across the street. Great lunch spot. The best Massaman Curry we had in Thailand! Great shakes and good service too. Very reasonably priced.
