The view on the beach was the best thing about the place. However, the restaurant was typical and nothing special. Food was very good.

We stayed a couple of doors up from Poppies and were intrigued by the website direction so we headed down for dinner one night. What we found was a charming property, right on the beach with a gorgeous fairy lit pool and a fabulous Thai menu (also western options). The food was great and the view was phenomenal.

We went there as a treat on our last night in Chaweng. Three of our family member had Lobster Termidor and I had Prawns and Tom Yum soup. The food was cooked to perfection, really good and tasty and we all enjoyed our meal. The price was on the expensive side but for the excellent food, we are quite happy... More

We stayed at Poppies Hotel and dined in their restaurant on a number of days/nights, as the service and food was excellent. The restaurant has views over the sea and the staff are extremely efficient and friendly. We will be returning

Very good food, amazing service. They made arrangements for us, even though we were not staying at their resort, we just showed up for dinner very hungry. BAO was the guy who helped us get a table. He was so pleasant and nice. Food was very good too.

A stranger told me this was the must-go to restaurant in Koh Samui so I was near by and decided to go in. I LOVED it. the food was good, the location was excellent, and so was the service. It's hard to describe what this restaurant feels like. It's beach side, all open, with impeccable service and clean as hell.... More

Had numerous thai meals on our trip but this was the best by far. While not cheap the seafood was fresh and the service very good.

We were excited to go to Poppies having eaten there on our previous visit 5 years earlier. Not sure if the really damp weather has got us down but really didn't feel the food was outstanding as we remembered it was. We dined over a late lunch this time and perhaps seeing the place in full daylight rather than evening... More
