We have been regulars at the Boatyard since it first opened as a restaurant after the 2004 Tsunami and it remains as our favourite beach restaurant in Khao Lak. Not only is the food consistently good and great value, the friendliness of the staff who work so well and so hard as a team and, in our view, the most... More

On a quiet beach. Free sun beds if you eat or drink. Food nice. Loved the Pad Thai and pancakes. Great spot for swimming and walking along the beach

Great food and very good value plus a lovely walk down the beach. We ate there on several occasions and had a great meal every time - Pad Thai was really good

Great restaurant, Hotel, tasty, well priced food, cold beers and a comfortable sun lounge. All for a bargain price. We really enjoyed spending our days here. Can walk to it from the beach or take the road in. Also good for families...

Excellent service, good value for money. Better than the other beach restaurants in Khao Lak. I wouldn't recommend eating there for diner, but it's nice to drink a beer and have a snack there while looking at the beach.

Boatyard restaurant on the beach free beach beds when you has food here we expected average food but was really shocked by the excellent quality and the huge portions. Chicken Green curry was up with the top 5 that we have had in the years we have been coming to Thailand. But the cost was so cheap great value, left... More

We regularly visited this place for few snacks or smoothies during our last 2 holidays in Khao Lak. Staff is absolutely amazing, smoothies were great and seafood and vegetable snack tasty. Shame that they close quite early so we did not catch it for dinner. Come to visit and enjoy place, beach and views with the most beautiful location in... More

The beach setting is stunning and I have no doubt the fresh seafood is a major draw card but we we're disappointed with our lunch at the boatyard given its outstanding reputation. Have only eaten at two Ao Thong beach restaurants so not sure if reviews are based on quality compared to places on same beach or generally in Khao... More

My partner and I are staying at the Sarojin and wandered down the beach to this wonderful little restaurant. What an awesome experience. The staff were friendly and we had a shared entree, two mains and a couple of beers for about $20 AUD. The food was exceptionally tasty, and the view was stunning. We will wander down here again...
