“Soft shel crab, fried crab, scallops, yum yum yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Best seafood I had in Thailand. When on Koh Mak you simply have to go there for diner or lunch.
Call them and they will send a songthaew to pick you up (and bring you back).

My favourite is the fried crab in black pepper, very yummy and not too spicy compared to chili based dishes. We also had the deepfried soft shell crab, thai style fried fish (not in a batter but dry fried in oil) all very fresh and tasty. Also try the scallops when in season, served either with butter or with garlic and thai basil (see pic).

Really worth the detour and the staff / owners are genuinly friendly.

“Amazing Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

The best sea-food we ever had in Thailand (or in the world ?).
They pick you up at your resort for free and bring you home as well. Very friendly cook and tasty shells and squides. Really perfect.

“It is a must when you are on Koh Mak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

I am sure you find the best sea-food here. Restaurant equipment is basic, but who cares, when the food is so outstanding ? Yellow Crab Curry and Seafood Hot Plate are highly recommended.

“Probably the best food of our entire stay in Thailand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2013

Amazing food - just make sure you book. We didn't - the taxi dropped us and left. There were no tables left (amazing as the island was empty). Owners called for another taxi but to our relief a table became available whist we waited. And well worth the wait. Excellent food and service.
