I have eaten at the Kingfisher many times and am never disappointed. The menu is huge and full of great Thai dishes and Dutch and International dishes as well. The pricing is modest and the quality superb. The fact that most customers eat there several times during their vacations and return time and time again shows what a unique dining... More

Although the place didn't look like one of those where locals would go, I decided to try it and I was pleasantly surprised. I found the food quite tasty, and the service (especially from the two guys who may be the owners) quite good and polite. The shakes were also really good. It's unfortunately facing the main street so it's... More

Stumbled on an exceptional little restaurant just across from the Royal Palm Beach Resort which I will rate next. Small and open for dinner only it is run by the owner, his wife and brother. The service, food and ambiance provide for a relaxing evening at a very reasonable price. No loud music or tvs to distract from some enjoyable... More

May be some other days it could be better; but i was so disappointed, that i did not feel to try again. There are... More

First night in Ko Samui last night and just happened to come across the Kingfisher Restaurant as we were driving around looking for a place to eat. Kingfisher was very busy, so a good sign. We weren't disappointed, had a very fresh white snapper, which was amazing, and we were topped up with a free piña colada, which was a... More

This place has a really nice inside, clean and fresh with a large sitting area, lots of things to pick off the menu, but sad to say most items where not as nice as last time we were here, they reused the carved vegetable dressing on each course !!!
