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 and pepper one night and grilled the next. Superb! Also, the crab fritters (filled with... 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 one of our tastiest meals in thailand at this restaurant. ...the family who manages it is extremely sweet and prepared some mind blowing amazing vegetarian Thai dishes for us....we ended up finishing each morsel and kicking our plates and fingers. ..

This restaurant is on the main road around Samui,overlooking the Ocean at Bophut/Bangrak beach, nice views. The staff were efficient and helpful when choosing meals. We had Dinner & Lunch there on different days and all the meals were full of flavour and good serving size. A good choice for a great THAI meal.

Shrimp with Tamarind sauce is good quality and cheap. I love the crispy vegetable that comes with it. The fish is fresh and the soup is okay. ( I order the fish in lemongrass soup.. see the lemon glass soup in many local restaurant here so I think it a famous dish here.. maybe I'm wrong)

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 paste and shrimp chilli paste and it was superb. Mouth is still tingling but I... More

My partner and i were staying nearby for a couple of nights so decided to check the nearest restaurants. My Friend isn't the prettiest place to dine, but the menu features a couple of interesting dishes, not very often seen in your typical beachfront eatery. With a cold bottle of Leo our salad of squid and salted egg was amazing,... More
