Fantastic Thai and Western cuisine. The Islander is off the main strip of Bangla Road. Head towards the end of the road and it's on your left. Once you've had some food why not go and relax in the massage spa opposite?!

In our 2nd week in Thailand and had enough Thai food and some time on toilets we followed a verbal recommendation to this place. The staff were locals but understood our requirements perfectly. The food was traditional English Fare including mushy peas and pork sausages. Cottage pie and gravy and so much more. Staff friendly and attentive. Prices pretty standard... More

We popped in hoping for our favourite Sunday roast, not realising they do different ones on different days. So I went for the next best thing, full English which was outstanding & my husband had the cottage pie. Great food & value for money. Will be visiting again.

A really nice restaurant with lovely food and good for those who like their European style food whilst still being help to have local traditional food as well. Well priced and therefore good value. Definitely go there.

Great place to eat. You can get a toasted sandwich or a more substantial meal. The staff were friendly, the place was clean. The drinks were cheap. I'd go back just for the chips. It's situated in one of the laneways just off Bangla Road.

Have come back for lunch, dinner and drinks. Just off hectic Bangla but central to everything. Great pub food and Thai dishes. All reasonable priced, particularly the drinks. Friendly staff and not pushy. Just like the same venue on Samui, a great place.
