We ate at Som on our last visit to Koh Samui in 2016 and thought that the food and the service were very good. Unfortunately 12 months later we had exactly the opposite experience. This is not only the worst food I have eaten in Koh Samui, but the worst food I have ever eaten. I was served nearly raw... More

Som restaurant was the best restaurant in Koh Samui. We came across Som as we were looking for a place to do laundry. The lady at the front was so nice and said they also have a restaurant in the back which happened to be Som! We had a couple fresh coconuts while we took in the views of the... More

OMG this was a very good find far too late in our holiday. Food was amazing along with great staff. Views amazing right on the beach front. Don't do like we did and visit this restarant late in your holiday.

We had seafood dinner last nite at Som Restaurant, we order fish, king prawns, squids all BBQ. They were cook to perfection with amazing sauces. Their crab meat fried rice is also superb. Their price is cheaper than any bigger restaurant in fisherman's village of Koh Samui. Service is above expectations. We will go back there next time when we... More

Wow! What a meal. Scallops in garlic butter followed by steamed veggies and steamed snapper in lemon sauce. Everything was fresh, cooked to perfection and so much flavour. The fish melted in my mouth and is by far the best fish I've ever eaten. All served by friendly staff. Only 2 days left in Koh Samui, and I know where... More

We stayed a short car journey away and went to the restaurant on the reccomendation of other reviews. It didn't dissapoint. The food was lovely for the price. A friend had the prawns in batter to start which were really tasty, another some chicken satay and I had the spring rolls. All quite normal starters but then I had the... More

We went to Som's restaurant tonight for dinner. It is lovely placed at the beach, meaning you can have your feed in the sand while eating. The chicken satay was very nice and juicy, especially considering value for money. A clear must go

Was in Thailand for a family holiday for a week and we visited the fantastic Som restaurant 4 times. The best king prawns I have tasted in a long time. Try the holy basil spicy prawns:) It's not much to look at from outside but it makes up for it with fantastic food, great service and a gorgeous sunset on... More

I stayed 500m away from Som's Restaurant, so it was very easy to see if the food was as good as mentioned on the reviews. It's really good and I ate there every day. Starters are around 80 baht. I had the garlic bread and the fried spring rolls and they were great, the garlic bread was truly delicious. Dishes... More
