We had dinner here one night and the place was pleasant, with cozy lighting and a good view of the sunset. The food was good and the beer was cold. Not much more you could ask for considering the cosy ambience.

We arrived for lunch just when a big party of other guests had just ordered, so the staff was busy! That meant that food took a bit long to get served, which can be a bit of a hassle with two hungry children.

Had a lovely time with 6 adults and 6 kids. This end of the beach very clean, perhaps thanks to Pimalai Resort keeping it so. Food very good and reasonably priced for a top location. Definately worth a visit.

We have been for the last 3 years and love coming here. A great vibe, great menu and food. A beautiful location situated at the end of the bay, within easy reach from Pimalai. Look forward to returning next year.

We stayed in a nearby hotel and went to Samesame Restaurant both for lunch and for afternoon drinks. A lovely beach restaurant, tables and chairs in the sand, directly on the beach with a very relaxing and easy-going ambience – and they have Lavazza coffee. At each visit it took some time before the waiters recognize that we need menus... More

Well, we didn't eat here, only had drinks and coffee - those were good But the place is gorgeous and very well kept! This was our favorite spot in the whole Koh Lanta. The beach is serene, the restaurant is very Thai looking and it is very pleasant to be there!

We stayed some nights in the Pimalai Hotel and had the chance to go for lunch to the same same restaurant. Typical beach restaurant, tables and chairs in the sand. As we sat down, the waiters took some time to recognize, that we need a menu - playing with the mobile phone was more important. It took another while until... More

At the southern most end of the beach Same Same is exactly what it professes to be, Different. Whilst it is not the cheapest beach restaurant, it certainly does put a twist on traditional Thai food. Most main meals were 180THB, but were good portions & certainly different. Large Singha's were alittle overpriced at 150THB, but worth it for the... More
