Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

During our 7-night stay at the Renaissance Samui, the rain forced tawaNN to close for most nights, and staff kept apologizing for our "rained-out" cancelled reservations. Finally, last night, we got to enjoy this special romantic venue (yes, it did rain, but the thoughtful staff prepared the tables in the indoor dining room, just in case, and we loved it, nonetheless). We are both vegetarians, and the serving staff, led by Sara, and the management team, led by Woody and Opal, couldn't have been more accommodating. They went out of their ways to give us ideas of what dishes we could try modifying to fit our specific dietary restrictions. The culinary team delighted us with delicious dishes! In our opinion, what makes this restaurant (and the hotel and all its dining outlets) stand out are the people who treat all customers with genuine smiles and kind hearts. Thank you again, Chef Sukit and his team, Opal, Woody, Apple, Sara, Bow, Tony, Deh, Noony, Tom, Top, Felix, and so many others, for your fantastic service and assistance!

The food was delicious and the staff was very attentive and lovely. After knowing my diet plan (I'm on ketogenic diet), they tried their best to accommodate my needs. Their service with exceptional attention to detail was very impressive. Highly recommended!

Looking at the menu, it sounded like this place was going to have a more modern twist on Thai cuisine but the food turned out to be pretty bland. Maybe flavors are toned down with tourists in mind? Had one of the curries and it tasted mostly of coconut milk with a hint of curry. Had a cocktail which was not balanced and seemed to be missing components that were described, rather disappointing at 380 bhat or about $12 USD. Service was frustratingly slow. After asking for our check, our waiter passed by no less than three times without bringing the check and the were only two other tables seated. We ended up just going to the bar area to pay, which somehow took a few minutes. While we waited, I understood why drink came out the way it did - the person making drinks clearly didn't know what they were doing. Was staying at the Renaissance for 7 days and never went back to tawanNN after this experience.

Our party of three chose the 6:00 seating for both nights of our stay at Renaissance Koh Samui Resort. The sun sets shortly afterward in early July, affording us unmatched views of the sea and mountains beyond. Service was attentive and polite both evenings. A major concern in July this year is Covid 19 precautions, and on that score TawaNN excels. The restaurant is spotless, and staff take all proper sanitary precautions. The food is as memorable as the ambiance. Chef Top consistently chooses interesting combinations of spices, good for Thai or Western tastes. I'd recommend Western visitors experiment with Thai dishes. My favorite was the budget friendly pomelo salad. Portions are huge, so you will have an opportunity to share. Follow with any of the sea bass dishes. My favorite was sea bass with black pepper. Still adventurous? Linger over a ginger and pepper cocktail, or ask staff to recommend a local beer. We stayed two nights at Renaissance, and enjoyed TawaNN both evenings, plus both evenings in a prior trip. The staff, the food, and the setting are perfect.

While staying at Renaissance Koh Samui we had a fantastic dinner at TawaNN. I would highly recommend it for hotel guests or outside guests. We had a great seafood platter. Best of all though, was the staff of the hotel and other restaurant outlets, who were always extremely attentive and remembered our likes/previous orders. Specially Deh, Aim, and Woody . Thank you for your attentive service!!

TawaNN is an upscale restaurant which belongs to the Renaissance hotel on Koh Samui. The panoramic view of Lamai beach is awesome. The Thai food is excellent, and everyone working in the restaurant is extraordinary friendly (esp. Prae, Jeans, Katie and Bow). Try the deep fried prawns or green mango chicken salad for a starter, and a green or red curry as a main dish. You can choose between white and natural rice at the table. They have special lobster offers too.

Im stayed at the Renaissance hotel for three days, two nights, and ate at the tawaNN restaurant both days. I can say that I was very impressed with the food. Wow, the taste is perfect, the food is delicious, I like the menu Kaeng Tai Pla very much, it's delightful So GOOD GOOD GOOD dish. The following impressive menu is the fried squid with two sauces provided, and I can't remember the menu's name. But it's battered squid. And then there is a sauce for me. The orange color sauce is very delicious. It's a taste that I've never had anywhere else. I'm impressed with every menu that I have eaten. The fried banana dessert is really delicious. Every flavor that I have eaten in the hotel and at the restaurant is the most delicious. I am impressed with every dish, including savory food, southern food, sweet food, and beverages. Taking care of the three elders very well. K'Deh recommends food and service be very nice and polite since walking into the restaurant. And K'Aim, K'Boy take excellent care of them as well. The drinks that he made are very delicious. We went on a special family occasion at the restaurant they care about our family and give great importance to the special day of our home. Thank you very much! It was a perfect experience. I feel energized, and I've gained a lot of good energy back. Thank you to everyone who took care of me very well. I want to go back to Samui again. See you again soon ka ^____^

As guests of the Renaissance Hotel we've been guests plenty of times at the tawaNN and were absolutely delighted everytime. The food is excellent as is the service (the staff is literally breathing hospitality, thoroughness and care). We mainly enjoyed the Asian and Thai dishes (although there are many western dishes to choose from as well), which were absolutely stunning! Moreover, the staff had great culinary recommendations for us and a lot of interesting background information about Thailand and particularly about Koh Samui. The views from the terrace on the Indian Ocean are also breathtaking, in short: we loved every moment of our time there!

If you are craving delicious see food, or if you are in the mood for some authentic Thai food, TawaNN is the place to be! The ingredients were beyond fresh and exceptionally well prepared. Our compliments to the chef! There is something for everyone on the menu, from local delicacies to kids favorites. The selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages is great, and the staff is more than happy to make a recommendation or pair the wine with your dish for you. The cleanliness in the restaurant is impeccable and the Corona related precautionary measures are carried out by all employees. Also, the view from the restaurant terrace overlooking the Lamai bay at sunset is spectacular! The icing on the cake for us was the service, which could have not been better! The attentiveness and warm welcome we’ve experienced here makes this restaurant one of the best on the island! We will surely come back again!

Wonderful view for sunset, excellent service from Deh & New(not sure for spelling) They can adjust the degree of spicy, so if you aren’t spicy lover, still can enjoy the taste of Thai. Must try tom yam gung and yellow duck curry! Roasted vegetables also great with the seasoning. Mango sticky rice is delicate, very satisfied. 服務非常熱情,食物好吃,景色一流,戶外完全不熱,美好的一餐。調酒跟果汁差不多,不敢喝的人也可以試試。烤蔬菜、冬陰功跟芒果糯米飯非常棒!!Deh的服務很周到細緻,差點想問他是不是股東

Had dinners at TawaNN & Banna Leaf, both sharing the same kitchen. The food comes with the freshest of ingredients and the service, impeccable by any standards. Special mention to Khun Opal, Woody, Deh & New. Also kudos to Khun Apple for her great recommendations. The team has made our dining experience so much more memorable. Definitely the best Thai food in Koh Samui!

I went to dinner with two friends from our fitness retreat. Two of us had the lobster fish and the other baked sea bass. From the amuse-bouse,appetiters and main course everything was delicious. The team of Sai,Mint, Name provided great service and was very attentive during our meal service. Also the door person and golf cart driver was pleasant and helpful. While we missed the sunset, the location is perfect for a date or just friends hanging out with a view of the ocean. This is upscale resort and be prepared for higher than usual food prices. Our lobster meal was $1,950 baht. We spent about $2500 baht a piece. 😀

We stayed at Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa, had a dinner at the restaurant the first day and very much enjoyed the food. Only after visiting couple of other restaurants in the nearby resorts and towns we realised tawaNN is the best choice in the neighborhood! The prices are very decent and food truly amazing. You can take either a local cousine like pad thai, curry, seafood or a burger and I assure you all will be delicous!
