A friend of us recommended The Souk for accomodation as well as for great food. He was right, but not only for these two things. The owners Eddy and Oh (correct spelling?! --> sorry Oh :) ) are so nice and lovely. The Souk is perfect for relaxing and enjoying life. You have the choice between fan and aircon bungalows located directly at the beach. Thanks for the great times we have had.

After an adventure filled day on Koh Chang island it was lovely to sit by the ocean hearing the waves lapping up just feet away. Delightful family owned restaurant on the east coast a few km south of the ferry with excellent service and amenable to families and small groups as well as couples. Stone path from parking area, over a small stream into candle and low light table areas spread across wooden floors and open air roofs. Last night special was barracuda with garlic butter sauce. Our family had a variety of fried rice with chicken and pineapple, to cashew chicken over rice, and a Thai favorite, padthai. They even cooked the curry bowl for our grandson with very light spice as he requested. Dinner was followed up with a bowl of pineapple and watermelon. And it was all for 1500 baht. A wonderful dinner, highly recommend it. Nice clean western and Thai toilets also.

I Visted The Souk last night for a great Baracuda with Galic Pepper sauce and fresh salat.

The food is delicious and the Service from the Family owned Resort is lovley. The Place is very Quiet and romantic.


I will come back soon.

I have eaten Thai food many times on my 18 trips to Thailand but The Souk is my favourite. The setting is beautiful and romantic. The service from Ed and Oh the Thai hosts is fantastic and they both speak good English. Some of my favourites were the sun dried baby squid, the red thai curry and the fresh fish which was landed daily by local fishermen. This is a very chilled laid back restaurant.

We had dinner several times at Eddy's restaurant as we stayed in one of his lovely Bungalows. It was just great!
The Barracuda (special meal of the day) was crispy - my wife voted this meal to her "absolute top 10 ever fish meals". I preferred the more western style like "Chicken Mafia" and was just as happy. It's not only the delicious food that makes the place. It's the friendly and relaxed atmosphere, the relaxed music, the people, the place all in all. It's really worth the little jump over the hill from the west side of the island to this unique place on the east side close to the mayor pier.
By the way: Bangkok Airlines recommends The Souk in their inboard magazine as THE place to eat on Koh Chang. Was funny to read that while flying to Trat with a reservation of this place in the pocket...and a kind of a very specific award from a boutique airline.
Congratulations, Eddy! You deserved that!!!
