Our favourite place to eat

We’ve got designs on this classy restaurant located on the hillside leading out of Chaweng. Minimalist and luxurious, with an exclusive feel, the clientele here are not hard up. Taster menus are the best way to experience the diversity of the menu, featuring up to seven courses of anything from duck breast to tempura prawns. Food is presented in line with the stunning surroundings – like a work of art – and the 36-label wine list only adds the refined feel of this super-stylish venue.

A regal affair

2. Tom Yam Thai

A regal affair

Chaweng Beach is littered with wonderful restaurants serving worldwide cuisine, but nothing beats traditional Thai. Delicious food, a friendly feel and great value are all on the menu at Tom Yam Thai. With its colour scheme of purple and gold, it has a regal air and is unique in its split-level building with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay. With specialities such as pork spare ribs in coconut milk and whole deep-fried grouper, an experience you won’t forget.

Six courses above the sea

3. Dining on the Rocks

Six courses above the sea

Set within the secluded Six Senses Hideaway Samui resort, Dining on the Rocks is the island’s ultimate evening experience. Perched upon nine verandas of weathered teak and bamboo over the gulf, you’ll feel like you’re dining suspended in the stars. A six-course fixed-price menu changes with the inspiration of the chefs to include unique ‘New Asian’ and ‘modern interpretive’ cuisine and fine wines. For unmatched romance, book table 99 and dine on your own private terrace.

Bringing Brazil to Samui

4. Zico’s

Bringing Brazil to Samui

Step away from Thai style for a night and head to Koh Samui’s famous Brazilian restaurant for a spectacular show. Mouth-watering meals, great entertainment and tempting cocktails combine for a meat-lover’s dream, with sword-like skewers of the finest cuts of barbecued meat being brought to your table. After an all-you-can-eat feast accompanied by samba dancers, DJs and percussionists, there are few places on the island that can match a night at Zico’s.

Traditional Thai – to go

5. Hua Thanon Market

Traditional Thai – to go

Live like the locals and head to Hua Thanon Market, in a Muslim village just south of Lamai, and feast your eyes upon Thai delicacies, from freshly butchered meat to just-caught squid and bundles of vegetables. A row of food shops sell ready-to-go meals not to be missed – awaken your senses with chicken biryani and red-hot curries or toasted coconut rice flavoured with lemongrass and dried shrimp, and soak up true Thai culture.
