We had a lot of delicious meals here during our long stay on Koh Tao. They have always exceeded the expectations. We tried almost everything on the menu and we recomand all. :)

Echoing what everyone else has said, really. Fancied a great curry at a decent price, in a family environment. Wasn't disappointed. The Panang was excellent, and I'll be back again for dinner tonight, and most likely every day until I leave :-)

Nice little family run restaurant, pretty basic but they are lovely and attentive. I had a great Pad Thai, big portions! Bit adventurous by ordering veg spring rolls fresh, couldn't finish them - but tasted so good!

I saw this place on TripAdvisor and decided to check it out. Absolutely incredible. My boyfriend and I have tried the fresh vegetable spring rolls, pad thai, massaman curry, papaya salad and green curry during our last two dinners here. All were incredible ESPECIALLY the massaman curry. Best curry we've tried during our travels in Thailand thus far. We are... More

We have just ate a fantastic evening meal at this place. We would never have found the restaurant or known about it as it is slightly outside of sairee town, but the beauty of TripAdvisor is exactly this, people leaving reviews for others to read and explore. We have ate in some great places in Koh Tao and this is... More

The food is incredible! Flavourful and great price for what you get. We ordered the papaya salad, no name chicken, spicy shrimp soup and sweet and sour pork. There were only two ladies working...one taking orders and the other preparing the dishes, so service was a bit slow but very impressed with how they managed to get through all the... More
