This is a must try when at Koh Samet. The owner John is very friendly and welcoming as are all of the staff. There is a range of English food and Thai food, all cooked to perfection and all well priced. A must is the chunky monkey breakfast first thing to get your day started! Couldn't recommend it enough 😊

Lovely selection of Western and Thai food. We went for dinner twice (tried both Western and Thai) and for a full English brekkie. Lovely atmosphere and John and his team were great. Also, lovely clean toilets which (a major plus in Ko Samet). Oh and must mention Frankie the dog! Highly recommend Funky Monkey for anyone visiting Ko Samet!

We have been visiting The Funky Monkey over a number of years now and it just gets better. John the owner is a top guy who is both sociable and a great host. Attentive of his customers without being overbearing. Imagine our horror when arriving on the island to find that they were closed for re-decoration. So for the first... More
