Description: Adding cutting-edge design, a global lifestyle with modern luxuries to Thailand, the hip W Retreat Koh Samui also offers the ultimate culinary indulgence with its signature restaurant, Namu. Taking its name from the Korean word for wood, Namu combines the basic life elements to create a new culinary world that embodies Asia Tomorrow. Stylish individual elements underline the minimal clean lines of the decor that sets the scene for inventive Japanese cuisine. Step through the dramatic entrance surrounded by an enchanting water feature inside, subdued lighting suffuses the dining area with a intimate vibe. A dramatic textured ceiling spirals downwards, flanked by green glass rods, representing bamboo. Diners can opt to sit outside on the beachside terrace, at one of the six tables indoors, or at the best seats in the house - along the counter of the open kitchen for a firsthand glimpse of the action. The innovative menu at Namu offers a diversity of dining experiences, re-interpreting influences from around Asia and especially Japan, while retaining intrinsic flavor profiles. In keeping with the traditional Asian concept of dining, a shared table concept that celebrates the compatible textures and flavors is encouraged. Cutting-edge and daring, Namu is a sensual dining experience that constantly re-invents itself, while showcasing the Asia of tomorrow.

This was one of most memorable dinners that we have had in a long time. The chef provided us with our own special menu. We were absolutely amazed. By the way kudos to chef teerapat kaowphirom and his amazing team. We will definitely come back.

We visited Namu today and left very satisfied. The food and wine was great and Kampoo went above and beyond.

We tired the miso soup, prawn tempura and tuna rolls as well as the sea bass with jalapeños. It tasted great and was full of flavour.

It was also nice being inside and in air conditioning, since the restaurant in our hotel is outside and bugs can become bothersome.

We left full and happy and with a set of chop sticks.

All in all, our bill was about $77 (incl. two glasses of red wine and sparkling water).
