Amazing food and service

What a little gem in Khao lak. The service is amazing, the food also delicious. The owner is very welcoming. The spring rolls are amazing! We are so glad we got to dine there twice this week before it closes for a month but will be sad we can't dine there next week. Highly recommend trying this... read more

We visited smile due to its reviews in Tripadvisor. Although not bad, the food did not live-up to our expectations. The service however is excellent and the owner went out of his way to help us. In fact, one of our dishes was too spicy ( we asked for medium spicy, as we like hot, but it blew us away)... More

Tried this one purely due to the reviews and was not disappointed - was not keen to try spring rolls with cheese but saw them on the table next to us ( also Aussies ) and they convinced us... So glad we did - delicious!! The blue marlin in a coconut sauce was tasty, super fresh and cooked to perfection... More

Our hotel managed to reserve us a table here after it was so highly recommended on Trip Advisor. However, we have come away feeling as though we have wasted an evening. Reasons it was such a bad experience: - Had to climb over a huge stray dog which the owner or the staff were reluctant to even try to move.... More

We ate twice at this restaurant during our holiday. The fish was exquisite - blue marlin the first time, and barracuda the second. Delicious creme brulee which we had both times. Lovely accommodating staff too.

We visited Smile after reading the positive reviews that it had received. We past it one afternoon and noticed a sign that indicated that booking was necessary. To be honest, I found that a little strange considering it was low season, and most restaurants only had a handful of diners in most evenings. We were told there were two sittings,... More

This restaurant is not your typical Thai restaurant, it is a mixture of Thai food and some European food. This may sound strange but believe me it works extremely well. The restaurant owner is very friendly and makes you feel at home from the moment you enter the place. The dish of the day is shown to you and free... More
