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.

Based upon the reviews by others we chose Hill Tribe for our last dinner in Khaolak. The food was excellent, the service friendly. Definitely put this one on your list!

This is a gem not to be missed in the Khao Lak region. We had several traditional dishes from Northern Thailand and they were all superb. The service was excellent and the ambience very pleasant.

Loved the more traditional setting. We sat on raised bamboo platform with triangular cushions to rest on. Good selection. I had chicken larb..bit spicier than I expected but still delicious with some sticky rice. Husband had dragons balls...pork balls rolled in crispy noodles then deep fried...yum!

We had high expectations after all the rave reviews we had read. We weren't disappointed. We were a group of four on a very quiet low season midweek evening and were very well looked after by the smiling and helpful staff. Two of our number didn't like overly spicy food, but were accommodated quite easily. Only one criticism: most of... More

I found Hill Tribe from Tripadvisor. We were the only table of the night, and there was this lingering feeling that this restaurant might be overrated (turned out it was just because of low season).
