We came across baan rim nam by chance whilst riding round Koh Yao Yai and we would highly recommend it. The staff are very polite and friendly and the view from the restaurant is unbelievable. We had spring rolls and possibly the largest fried shrimps I've ever seen for starters, the seafood that we had was great. For main courses we had a Thai red curry which was very tasty, and spicy, and shrimp cooked in a garlic and chilli sauce which was also very good. We also had a banana milkshake which I would recommend. We wish we had longer on the island to go back and try more dishes.

Together with my girlfriend I spent two nights on Ko Yao Yai. We visited Baan Rim Nam three times during that time. Besides the very delicious food, the hospitality of the staff and the owner blew us away. We were able to join Kai (nickname of the owner) on a fishing trip in the morning. He was happy to explain the different fishing techniques and proud to present the caught fish. He even took us to their on-sea-fish-farm where we got to see sea animals, you normally just see in an aquarium. Initially we came to Yao Yai trying to escape the tourist crowds on the other islands. This family prooved that the rumour of Thai friendlyness and hospitality (and fantastic kitchen) is true and even more noticeable when you keep aloof from the touristic places. Long story short: we recommend Baan Rim Nam 100%!

Heard good things about this place, so we were very excited to go and try the local food here.
My wife had a massaman curry, the potatoes were still raw floating in Luke warm coconut milk...
I had a chicken veg stif fry which was ok, nothing exceptional. I'm not saying don't go eat there, perhaps seafood is the better choice.
Be warned, NO alcohol served as it is Muslim run place....
