Smile had only just reopened after being closed for a while. We arrived a party of 10, 6 adults and 4 children to an already full restaurant. Frank was extremely obliging and due to the kids being young made sure we had our food as quickly as possible. Food was delicious! I would suggest that you book to make sure... More

Had a French meal here, it was very nice, although the potatoes were tepid, you need to book, we were lucky, we got there early on speck. Its a bit more expensive than most around there, but worth it. The owner is a Frenchman, who mingles with the guests. They do Thai food as well. It is very popular, its... More

My family and I ate here twice during our stay in khao lak and also had a takeaway meal as well. Frank the Frenchman and his wife...the chef..run a popular restaurant near the Sands by Kathani hotel. It is best to reserve a table as food is purchased daily based on bookings. We were there in the off season of... More

Enjoyed the fresh fish here and interacting with the French owner who makes a personal effort to ensure that his guests are well looked after. Had fish meal there and found it to be very fresh and delicious. Would have liked bigger servings especially as the rice was only a thimbleful instead of a bowl as in most other Khao... More

Before our trip to Khao Lak, I did a search for restaurants close to the hotel. And Smile was one of them. The food is Asian fusion and there's fresh catch-of-the-Day with 3 different types of sauces to choose from. The spaghetti is served al dente with thai style curry choose your meat chicken/pork/prawns. Remember to ask for medium or... More

Being back in Khao Lak we against visited our favorite restaurant SMILE. Always worth visiting and almost a must once you are in Khao Lak. The food is extremely well prepared - tasty and tender. We give SMILE our very best recommendations.

Wonderful food. Frank is a great host and lets the quality of the food speak for itself. You need to book though as it gets very busy. Ate there 3 times in the week and nothing disappointed.

Just had the best night at Smile Restaurant, The food is magnificent, Khao Lak feels like there is no one here but Smile was packed and the owner had to turn people away, he also told us he was booked out tomorrow night. Defiantly a must try when in khao Lak, but book in advanced.

We stumbled onto Smile Restaurant by accident while looking with another couple for a place for evening meal. This place exceeded anything we had expected in terms of food quality and fun value. The french manager was very entertaining and welcoming. The restaurant was clean and nicely set out and the staff friendly and efficient. There was a wide choice... More
