Fantastic service,fantastic food and Aussie red wine.you need to book but well worth it,the owner bring around plates showing you the meals and you receive a small appetiser and a shot glass at the end of the meal.

Don't let the exterior look of Smile deceive you. This place puts on a great meal. Anytime I eat at a place and the owner is working the crowd and expressing their passion for their food I take that as a good sign. Smile has a broad menu selection. Their presentation is very nice, and reflects a knowledge of how... More

Staying at the Sands by Katathani when another guest recommended this restaurant. Had dinner with my wife and every dish was a taste sensation in itself. We had a early dinner as there seems to be two sittings. Bookings for the later sitting seems necessary from what we understand. I can see why people rate this place so highly. Staff... More

This was the best of the restaurants we ate in. The Marlin and prawns were excellent. The French owner was running all over the place but delightful. Also reasonably priced

While we enjoyed the food it was no better than a few restaurants closer to our resort . We went here because of the reviews and when I phoned for a booking as suggested I got a lecture on how busy the place was and how lucky I was to get a table for the following night. When we arrived... More

We have eaten at this wonderful restaurant 7 times and will be back in a few days, we have yet to have a meal we have not fully enjoyed, the Blue Marlin is a favourite of mine but it is hard to choose between the Talay Seafood and the Smile chicken and the Smile Salad, The Smile Spring Rolls with...

My wife and I dined there last week, the meal was ok, service was terrible (grumpy waitress) don't think I would go back, I'm not sure how it got its high rating.

We had our best meal in Khao Lak at Smile restaurant this week. Majorly busy restaurant so I would recommend booking a day or two in advance. The food was great and a welcomed break from the familiar thai food which we were eating everyday. The chicken satay and chicken and mozzarella spring rolls were great appetisers. I would also...

Food was not bad... nothing special. Service was poor. We ordered a starter and the Marlin. Once the starter had arrived and our bottle of white wine our waiter explained that the Marlin had finished. I explained that my wife did not eat meat, they did not have any more fish in stock. Haphazard planning. The owner is a friendly... More
