"Oh yes!" These are the words that will be jumping out of your mouth the minute you see this restaurant. And you'll be repeating them throughout the meal as each exciting dish arrives, and the evening becomes a truly magical one. Nothing short of sensational, SALA Samui Choengmon Beach delivers an outstanding dining experience every time.

The restaurant is located in the resort of the same name, right by the beach. Choose to dine in the open-sided 36-seat restaurant building itself or on the surrounding decking under large parasols. Even better – though you'll definitely need to ring ahead to reserve – dine on one of the special tables set up on the beach with candles and torches (choose whatever you like from the à la carte menu, at no surcharge). You can also eat at the unique table-for-two that's actually on a platform in the swimming pool itself, where you can enjoy your meal whilst keeping your feet cool in the water.

Alongside talented head chef, Kittipong Somjan, usually simply known as Chef Max, you'll find executive chef David Lloyd, who hails from London. Together, this stellar duo heads the kitchen team here. They produce Modern European dishes (with the focus on Asian flavours), and Traditional Thai – but not the regular ones found in your local Thai restaurants back home.

The culinary day starts with breakfast, one of the best on the island, from 7:00 am until 11:00 am. You'll find à la carte choices, along with a buffet and also a healthy breakfast bar. And if you need something a bit stronger, there's Bloody Marys on offer every day, plus prosecco every Sunday.. Lunch by the sea follows next, with highly tempting fare and then for dinner, Chef Max showcases some magnificent choices.

For starters try the Lobster Risotto – Maine lobster risotto with lobster beignet, tomato, parmesan and fresh tarragon leaves; it will be more than enough to assure you that you've come to the right place – it's extraordinarily tasty. As is the main course of Black Angus – chargrilled Australian Black Angus tenderloin, with shallots, horseradish croquette, 'pommes Anna', four spice powder and classic red wine sauce. A highly popular dessert is A Lovely Apple – which is a set caramel custard with apple gel, apple spheres, cinnamon cremeux, ginger streusel and a spiced apple ice-cream, that will have you saying "Oh yes!" yet again, but even louder.

The Thai cuisine, meanwhile, is every bit as pleasing. Enjoy dishes such as Pla Nueng Manao – whole barramundi removed from the bone and steamed with lime, ginger, lemongrass, Asian celery and accompanied by a chilli spiced dressing; or Gaeng Phed Nua – five-hour braised Wagyu beef cheeks with a red curry of baby corn, eggplant, Thai basil, kaffir lime and fresh coriander. And just in case you're not sure what you would like, there's a set Thai meal for two, which is beautifully presented.

"... SALA Samui Choengmon Beach delivers an outstanding
dining experience every time. "

Aside from the à la carte selections, there's a grill section too, in which you can select your own meat and 'build' your own meal around it. Plus it's worth noting that all dietary requirements (vegan, gluten-free, halal, etc.) can also be catered for – just give the restaurant a call the day before to make arrangements.

Be sure to check out the generously-stocked wine cellar; it's won Wine Spectator awards for the last three years. There are some 140 varieties on offer, with at least a dozen that can be enjoyed by the glass. And on a similar note, the restaurant has featured in Thailand Tatler's Top 100 for the last three years.

In addition, there's a weekly Thai night (including traditional Thai dancing and a fire show), and every evening a generous happy hour between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm. You'll often find a DJ playing during sunset hours and at times there's a saxophonist entertaining diners. And if that's not enough, if you are in the mood for Italian food, then there is also a full menu of delectable fare at Pangaea, a cosy restaurant that is just at the entrance to the resort.

Oh yes! SALA Samui Choengmon Beach certainly does deliver that outstanding dining experience every time!

The kitchen's open from 7:00 am - 11:00 pm.
