Samui Baobab Restaurant is a French-owned restaurant in Koh Samui where you can get a range of delicious Mediterranean plates as well as some local Thai dishes. Highlights here include the tuna and beef tartars, as well as the large salads.
Fusion dishes at this Lamai restaurant include the Red Steak Tuna Special, which is a mix of tuna, salad and potatoes. Be aware that the portions here are on the large side and many people order these to share. The restaurant is best known for its French-inspired dishes, but you can also get Thai bites in the form of curries and spring rolls.
With only 28 seats set in a splendid candle-lit wooden décor blending traditional and contemporary Thai styles, Jahn offers guests an overwhelmingly chic and exclusive experience. The dining room features floor-to-ceiling windows allowing those who prefer to dine in an air-conditioned space the chance to enjoy the view, while the few tables installed on the terrace offer the ultimate romantic settings for a memorable dinner.
Guests have the options of dining à la carte or by choosing one of the two table d’hôte menus on offer - ‘Tasting of Jahn’ and ‘Journey of Jahn’. Both of them are seven-course sets and include all-time Thai favourites such as tom yum goong (spicy soup with prawns), beef massaman curry or papaya salad served with deep-fried chicken. Fine-dining usually comes with top-of-the-range wines and Jahn also provides diners with an excellent choice of old and new world labels. Price-wise, expect to pay between 3,000 and 5,000 baht per person for a meal, including wine.
