Excellent quality, value for money food served in a very characterful setting. Lady who runs the restaurant is very engaging and is more than happy to chat to the clientele (in English) We were staying at the Samu Buri Resort which is only a short walk away.

We found Pooms place last year just in the middle of our 2 week holiday in Ko samui and we fell in love with it. We couldn't wait to be back this year and try it again. So we did yesterday and it was even better than expected! The best fried rice and chicken satay I've ever had! A must... More

Awesome Place!! Om and her husband were awesome and friendly. The food was top quality and authentic. We ate there most nights for dinner and ventured out only once or twice to test the waters but kept coming back. The restaurant is rustic (which we love about Thai restaurants) but very cosy and would recommend this restaurant in Mae Nam.... More

We recently visited Koh Samui and stayed at the Saree Samui in Maenam. Poom's Restaurant was on the road leading up to the hotel. We gave it a try (along with other restaurants in the area) and ended up returning several times as it was clearly the best restaurant in the area. The food was fantastic, fresh, authentic and well... More

We loved this place. Walked in for lunch and it was empty but we felt super welcome, had an amazing pad Thai, chicken basil and hamburger and everything was very tasty. The owners are incredibly accommodating and even arranged for a taxi to take us to the night market at a friendly price.
