I enjoy eating healthily and I find it hard to do this if you want to eat out but Greenlight only use natural ingredients and no bad oils, iodized salt or any other rubbish which is rare in most restaurants but especially in Thailand. Even the falafels are baked and not deep fried. This is why I feel I can eat here often.
I've been staying in Samui for around 3 months and have eaten here on average 3 or 4 times each week! That should tell you what I think. I wanted to write a review for a while but had not gotten round to it but became motivated by being at the cafe when a couple complained about the bread! It was an unfair complaint.
I was sitting at the bar when the couple below complained about the sourdough having mould on it (review below). The Manager was understandably annoyed after they left and gave me some to taste. It was fine. A little bit dry as that batch had been frozen as it's low season this month and v quiet on the island but obviously no mould as it had been frozen. Fresh batch now made and it is being served fresh and unfrozen.
Whilst I feel that tripadvisor is a great site by empowering customers it also leaves things open to abuse with people who have either misjudged a situation or are looking for a discount. The guy who complained about his partners sandwich had eaten all of his but still complained on tripadvisor that he felt he should not have been charged! This shows the type of customers that businesses have to put up with! Complain before you eat something if you want to be taken seriously!
I love the Greenlight cafe for food but also socialise here.....I've tried salsa (dancing not food!) for the first time and did an 8 week course.
