Food is average, nothing special. Ordered nachos which were just dry tortillas covered in unmelted cheese and tiny pots of sauces to accompany. Also had toast which was more more bread and my sister had chicken friended rice was she said was not nice. There's much nicer places you can go on the same area and no more expensive. Staff...

I ate here almost every day, trying all of the vegetarian options. Terry is amazing at whipping something up if you're not sure what to have. The food was always top quality and there is just so many options from burgers to burmese curries to thai food and then of course chef Terry's special creations that sit on the specials... More

Great food, great staff and awesome atmosphere. I would highly recommend any of the Burmese curries. And Terry's pannacotta for sure ;)

Came here for dinner, and it's a bit of a 'bro' scene with the local staff, but that's alright- it's great for them to have a place to hang out at. Got a 'royale with cheese' and I didn't particularly like it(did not live up to my Pulp Fiction expectations). My husband thought it was good- but that's mostly just... More

Thanks for the great review and I am glad you enjoyed your meal (or you husband enjoyed your meal!). I would like to add that the 'Royal with Cheese' is a standard cheeseburger and does not have any garlic or any other sauce on it unless you requested it from our menu. I have also redeced the amount of fresh... More

The cafe is great for breakfast and lunch. We stayed at Good Times for a week and we found this was the place to eat. They don't stint on size and the dish burst with flavour. They major on traditional English dishes with a twist. But if want something hot and spicy you will find that here too. Will point... More

The family that runs this café are all really fun and easy-going, and more importantly make delicious, well-priced food. I ended up eating most of my meals on Koh Tao here because there were so many amazing things to try. Probably my favorites were the Burmese dishes, especially the laphet. I highly recommend this place.

Was here with my wife and one of my friends, food was totally decent but I got the super hot wings and I have to say that being in Thailand I would have expected something with a bit more punch, they didn't even beat the normal laab I had the day before.

Thanks for the review and we are glad you liked the food! Just a note on the wings, they come in mild, hot or chili madness. the last one uses fresh and dry Thai chili and is pretty hot but not crazy. That would be the suicide wings, which uses the ghost chilli - and you cant have ordered that... More
