4. Mit Samui

With a wide range of seafood on offer, it’s hard not to see why we love Mit Samui. This eatery delivers steamed crabs, shrimp tempura and fried seafood packed with taste. Whilst the restaurant is quite small, the venue is popular and is often busy on Tuesday nights. Furthermore, they use only the best quality produce at fair prices. A notable mention here goes to the Prawns fried in ginger sauce, for a aromatic, tender and hearty bite. Best of all, the service is fast and staff are friendly and accommodating.

Opening hours: Daily, 11:00 – 23:00.

Address: Phang Bua Market, Koh Samui, Surat Thani 84320.
