“Delicious Thai Food”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

After 15mins finding around the area that map showed, i was about go back to my hotel (OP Bungalow) and surprised that the restaurant hide itself in the corner, next to "big green bank", in the side road leading to OP Bungalow. I ordered deep fried shrimp, mango salad and fried rice in pineapple. I was full to unbreathable cos 3 dishes for one person seems too much. Mango salad is my recomendation for very Thais salad.

“Top thai food at a great price!!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

The last review made me a bit sceptical about this place, but boy I'm glad I gave it a go. A small family run restaurant, serving local produce, we went for red curry with shrimp and sweat and sour chicken. We also ordered two rice dishes (one pineapple and rice, the other stir fry rice with chicken). Both rice dishes could have easily been main courses by themselves!! The chef, a little thai lady, came out to see if my red curry was too spicy, which it wasn't. It eas right on the money. The food was really tasty and great value. All out food and drinks came to 1400 bhat. Under £15!!! Can't go wrong with that. Give it a go.

“Big disapintment”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Went there yesterday with my family. We were 5 people who had read all the good reviews on TA. We first waited 30 minutes for a table on a nearby bar. That is no problem. The problems just started when we ordered food. They were sold out from almost all kind of seafood except shrimps. They had no fruit shakes what so ever. I understand that seafood can sell out but no fruit??? I mean how hard can it be for them to buy some fruit if they sell out?

All 5 of us got the food at totally different times. My appetizer came after my main course. And to put the final anger on things my boyfriend did not get his food at all. They simply forgot... We were not impressed. They have like 7 table so it shouldn't be hard to give a little more service. The food we got was ok, but not worth coming back..

Dear Stinem,

I am sorry to read your comment about our restaurant and I have to apologize for not having given you a good service that night. I have to admit that you came in the most busy day for us during this season and that we had been overwhelmed with work on that day having been continuously full since opening in the morning. Our restaurant is small and we always buy only the amount of food that we expect to use for a single day, fresh ingredients make the difference, to conserve food is not a good thing in Thailand climate and with the size of our restaurant... including fruit... Given what was left and the time of the day (it was quite late) we should have politely asked you to come back the next day... we did not want to do that since you had waited long to get a table but having you and giving you a bad service was a worse choice. We are a family business, we try to do our best to give to our customer the best possible food and service ... we apologize again for having failed with you, we invite you to come back if you are still in Samui we are sure we will give you a better experience this time.
