Thought i would stop here as it has very funky decor and looks really good. Extensive menu and bar., food was average, as was the service which is unusual. Nice spot right on the beach had accommodation as well.

Great location right on the beach, huge menu (which is never a good sign!) of Thai and Western dishes, and very reasonably priced. Unfortunately the food was average at best. Thai style stir fry noodles with beef - a staple of any Thai restaurant - were an unappetising over cooked congealed mess with way too much soy sauce and meat... More

During our stay in Ko Samui we went here twice, one time for dinner and one time for lunch. The prices are very reasonable and the food is tasty. Also there is nice ocean view. I loved the relaxed vibe.

We went to this place twice, really good food, beer and drink at extremely reasonable prices in a wicked on-the-beach location. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, food was excellent. Very popular with tourists staying in Lamai. Access from the main road down a small alley way, or walk up (better) from Lamai beach and grab a... More

I never ate such tasteless food in Thailand. Even veggies were without taste. We ordered calamari in curry powder and crab in vegetables. There was not even one peace of chilli, basil leave or lemongrass, coriander... nothing. It tasted like frozen veggies bougth in supermarket back in Europe. We could not believe... We also had breakfast there and it was... More

I stayed for 2 nights at the New Hut Bungalows and visited the restaurant twice for lunch. It's located directly at the beach, so you have a pretty nice view. Food is very cheap for a real restaurant, a simple Thai meal will cost you around 100B. However, the staff is very reserved, which sometimes may seem a bit rude.... More

The worst service of our trip. Staff would rather you not be there hassling them we felt. Food was average, probably the poorest we had during our trip. The staff did not speak to us at all during our time, they were selectively mute and wouldn't engage with us, not even while taking our order. I think we were an... More

The title gives it away, the western food is nothing to write home about but then again, you're 6000 miles away in a country with amazing food culture, so why eat the same as at home? (The pancakes are pretty good though!)

This place certainly isn't fine dining, but if you're are looking for something quick then I would recommend. Great breakfast variety, and the remaining menu is very extensive for lunch/dinner. Banana shakes are great. Although, I would avoid the omelette with cheese and opt for the Thai food instead.

Thank rhiannelewis
