Koh Samui is littered with Thai restaurants offering affordable local cuisine. The choice can be quite overwhelming for residents and visitors to the island and many miss out on some of the best places because they are often not that easy to find.

Although nearly all Thai restaurants offer great food and are great value, every now and then one pops up that is exceptional. A new restaJennys 2urant that falls into the exceptional category is Jenny’s Thai Food at See Daeng Guesthouse.

The first thing that strikes you about Jenny’s Thai Food restaurant is that it is spotlessly clean. Outside there is a terrace with outdoor dining tables and an aquarium, that provides the perfect place to relax and enjoy authentic Thai food as you watch the world go by. The indoor dining area has plenty of fans to keep you cool, low level music and a handful of well chosen, and attractive artifacts.

The menu at Jenny’s is pretty vast and is packed full of all of the popular Thai dishes, however you will find a few less usual dishes such as bamboo salad, fried papaya salad, Esan sour sausage salad, salad with black duck egg, 3 mushroom soup and deep fried duck bill.

Jenny's 4The food here is just about as fresh as it gets and the presentation is of the sort you would expect at a restaurant charging far higher prices. With every mouthful you can tell that your dish has been lovingly prepared with pride and passion. Of course each dish can be seasoned to your own individual preference and if you don’t spot your favorite on the menu all you have to do is ask.

The Indian style curry is well worth a try if you fancy something slightly different to Thai. The delicate flavors of this dish are simply mouthwatering. One dish that is not on the menu, but is well worth asking for is no name chicken in sweet and sour sauce, the no name adds a bit of a twist on just traditional fried chicken. The Laab Moo or Gai is a house specialty that Jenny and Julie cook to perfection and comes accompanied by fully white steamed jasmine rice and a fine array of crispy and fresh salad and vegetables.

What Jenny’s is offering is an authentic Thai dining experience that is represents superb value for money. Not only is the food menu more than affordable the drinks menu is sensibly priced too. Dishes are served with huge smiles from the staff and nothing is too much trouble.

Jenny’s is located on Maenam walking street on the road that runs parallel with the beach close to the Chinese temple.
