This restaurant was recommended to us by a local, really great food and a lovely setting on the beach. Best Pad Thai we have had so far, can absolutely recommend it - also open for breakfast from 10 am

No frills restaurant, just good food at good prices in an area where that is unusual. Mostly a local crowd is found here. Beach side tables are available but really good fans are in the physical restaurant. We had whole sea bass, fried with garlic...More

A huge variety of thai dishes fairly priced. Just make sure you come here when it is not too crowded as the quality of the food sinks with the customers.

If you've spent much time in Thailand you'll be familiar with the menu, which features a few Thai staples mixed with the usual Western breakfast/burger/jaffle/fries options. If you want a laid back place to grab lunch and watch the sea then this is definitely it.

View is good, the restaurant itself is nothing to write about. The size of the portions were smal, but the fish was delicius.

We had a lovely dinner at 'my friend'... Amazing Thai food and it wasn't too expensive. Set right down by the ocean, where you can watch a beautiful sunset. Would recommend to anyone looking for a real Thai family restaurant experience!!

There are a lot of restaurants on Koh Samui that cater to the tourists and that is fine but if you like real thai food, this place is a gem. We had spicy squid soup with stuffed pork, beef Muslim curry, morning glory in fish...More
