Great food and nice atmosphere. Sue is verry helpful and friendly and we had a really nice chat about the food. It would have been great to book the cooking class but we already planed to visit koh tao at that time.

We ate here last night and were amazed. We have family in koh samui and they have eaten here many times. Yes the place is small, two family tables, (one for 4/6 and one for 10/12) but it was lovely. The owner was very professional and friendly. Can't believe anybody would say she was rude and the place dirty!! I... More

I went there because I have read some good reviews in Samui magazines about the cook. She also does a cooking school during daytime at the very same location. So I wanted to try this out. Well the food is tasty, comes with small amounts and is kind of chichi, so not original Thai as you might expect. The lady... More

We had walked past this restaurant at least 3 times before we Googled 'best places to eat in Maenum'. Glad we did - Sue cooks the most fantastic, authentic Thai food. It was so good, we sent our 3 children to her cooking class! The restaurant is small (on main road, very near the cross roads in Maenum) and only... More

We've been here several times before in the last few years and were happy to go again, the three of us the only customers at the time we went there. It's a tiny place on the ring road not far from the Mae Nam traffic lights, well worth seeking out if you want to see what good freshly made Thai... More

Absolutely amazing authentic thai food and amazing hospitality from Sue. If you're scared of thai food you shouldn't be! Sue will cater to your various chilli heat requirements and the food will be so mouth-watering you'll come back for more ! An absolute MUST on your trip to Samui!

Traditional Thai restaurant in Koh Samui. The chef suggests food combinations (i.e. Pad Seafood and Tom Yum Goong) to make your taste experience different. The restaurant provides nice chilled white wine (Chardonnay of Australia) as well. The whole dinner experience is quite comfortable although the chef has strong confidence with the foods and you will feel a little pressure when... More

I visited the place with couple of my friends and we really liked the food, we got served. I had cashews with rice and it was the best, I had in Thailand yet. My mates had green curry and you better eat it like she tells you to do it. Otherwise you will get in Trouble!
