Hill Tribe Restaurant was opened in 2008. Its chef and owner comes from the area of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand and therefore Hill Tribe Restaurant does not only offer excellent and genuine Thai food but it also introduces its guests to a traditional and unique North Thai dining experience. Families with children are welcome - we have special dishes for kids in our menu. Reservations for Khan Tok (north Thai dinner) recommended.

We thought this time the menu was v similar to other restaurants but on other visits we had enjoyed the Northern Thai specialities.

Dear Guest, I do not quite understand the reason of your critical remarks. Our menu has not significantly changed for the last few years and our Khan Tok dinner and other specialties from North Thailand are still offered. How come you could not order them, as you write in your review? We do appreciate fair criticism but strongly object to... More

I'm trying to figure out how Trip Advisor works out the ratings, HT is bar far on a different league to other restraunts in Khao Lak. We last visited HT in 2013 and was blown away by the service, quality & taste. 2015 and the food is still outstanding.

It seems to be rare to have a chef led restaurant in Thailand, which is a shame for the customers. Here is different and I have to say that the food was superb, both the staples and the specials. The service was also excellent. The price is at the upper end of the not very broad range in the area,... More

We found this resturant by looking at reviews in trip advisor and we're not disappointed. Firstly the location is just north of Bang la on and a short 200 BHT taxi from our hotel at the sensimar.

We had a wonderful evening at Hill Tribes. It was well worth the walk up from the beach. The food was authentic Thai, much nicer than in the more touristy areas and great value. The staff were great too. Would definitely go back!
