I stopped in for dinner one night and the place was pretty busy. The kitchen wasn't able to keep up with the orders (in a timely manner) and I eventually opted for the chicken kabobs from the front of the restaurant. The kabobs were good but to be great there needs to be an option for garlic mayonnaise. Roger, the... More

I just stopped here for a beer, and got chatting with the owner, Roger, who is ultra friendly. Menu looks good, with a mix of Thai and Western food. I am determined to try the bratwurst, which is sourced from a German maker on the mainland. There is a rotisserie where you can get grilled chicken kebab as a takeaway... More

We decided to venture away from the beach and find an alternative restaurant for our last night. Wanted ribs, but sold out. Usually only eat local dishes, but Roger recommended the large burger etc. Our food arrived promptly and was fine. Roger came and sat with us and chatted about how he came to live on Koh Samet, which was... More

Looked nice from the outside, burgers, hotdogs, ribs but.... Guy who owned it was unbelievable awkward, didn't know what he was doing, his daughter was counting out money on the side only to look in the back of the menu to see a page telling the customers how he had no money, and wanted donations because he was having the...
