This is my second visit to this restaurant within 6 months because we love the ambient atmosphere here. Adding to the atmosphere, is a good selection of traditional Thai food and fusion/western food having good taste and reasonable price.

Back to July 5th, 1978, on Setsiri Road opposite to Wichaiyut Clinic (at present, Southern Wichaiyut Hospital), a small Thai restaurant is situated. At that time, it originates food from our restaurant's original recipe. Later one, it becomes model for various restaurant widely, such as Fried Pork Ribs with Salted Soya Beans Dip, Freeze Beer, Fried Catfish Spicy Salad, etc.

At the present, Samsen Villa Restaurant still serves Thai food and beverage with the same original taste. Moreover, the environment is friendly providing warmth tough to the customers. In addition of the Freeze Beer, or various popular dishes such as Curry Dish of Fresh Water Shell with Acasia and Piper Herb Fried, Twisted Cluster Bean with Prawn, Braised Goat with Chinese herbs, Royal Style Pork Satay's recipes originated by "Jae Kieng" has underlined that the Samsen Villa Restaurant plays only original Thai music, as to remain Thai touch and feel in old classic age. This is considered as our major policy.

Finally, we would like to thank all our customers who have always been giving us your kind support so far.
