Had a fantastic meal at Smile, one of our nicest of the holiday. The meal starts with a complimentary starter and ends with complimentary shot of Limencello, a lovely touch. Had to have the spring rolls with cheese which all say sound weird but are delicious and they were. The whole meal was lovely, not dear and really made special... More

This became our go to place on the way back to our resort. Friendly staff who recognised us. Brilliantly priced cocktails & live music every night. Only downside was no toilet on site.

I wanted to review this restaurant after my first night eating here, but I held off as the meal was so amazing we came back the very next night. Let me tell you this place is simply excellent! After two meals back to back it is understandable why they are number one! The food is just fantastic. We had the... More

Had a meal here due to the reviews seen on Trip Advisor, it was good, but personally I wouldn't rate it as the No. 1. The menu is made up of some Thai, fusion and European dishes, so nice if you fancy something a little different. However you will pay for it, we found this place to be nearly 50%... More

French style food, but not French size!! Definite good portion, excellent food every time we ate there which was about 5 times. We booked in each time we left for the next time as it was always fully booked - wonder why?

One of the best restaurants - if not the best - in Khaolak! We would highly recommend Smile to any one looking for fabulous fresh food- Thai with a beautiful French twist. The spring rolls with cheese are to die for! Very reasonably priced food and wine for a restaurant of such high standards.

We went to smile on our last night in Khao Lak, we booked but there were people arriving after 8pm that hasn't and they were seated straight away as it is the low season. As stated before, you get a free small starter and shown the house specials. Both nice touches we thought. We tried the chicken and cheese sorting... More
