It is our last night in Thailand and someone recommended my daughter and I try this place. After getting asked if we'd booked, which we hadn't we were told they could fit us in despite us walking past one empty table for two. We ordered the child dish for my daughter which consisted of fried prawns, ketchup, spaghetti, fruit and... More

We popped in on the off chance and it was fully booked. Luckily for us someone had cancelled and we git a table. The staff were lovely and really fussed over our daughter. But let's cut to the chase, food it what it is all about. All I can say is yum. They believed me when I said Thai spicy,... More

This restaurant shines out in a sea of mediocrity in Khao Lak, which is why it is busy when most others have to use their staff to try and drag people off the street. It is easy to find on the main drag and the owner is energetically passionate about the food he is serving. He has brilliantly combined his... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Khao Lak. The food is outstanding, and the host Frank is attentive and focused on providing his guests with a quality evening. The food, including sauces are all freshly prepared and the price of the meal, considering the quality of the food is excellent value. This restaurant is highly recommended.

We went back to Smile after a long absence of at least a couple of years. We had very much enjoyed it on our last visit and came to eat 2 or 3 times over the course of just a few days. They are in a new location now, but much of the menu is the same which is generally... More

We were puzzled as to why restaurant is so busy? I presume it must be full of trip advisor readers going on recommendation... As were we. Would I go back? Maybe, but probably not. Food was ok but no better than other restaurants at 1/3 of cost of Smile. Owner very good at working the room, making sure that everybody... More

We were a party of 4 eating in this very popular restaurant in Khao Lak last night. We had high expectations as had to book in advance to get a table and we were not disappointed. Our table was ready promptly and while we were waiting for our drinks we were shown sample dishes of some of the menu which... More

When a frenchman opens a restaurant in Thailand and mixes the french know how with thai and italian ingredients, the results can't be bad. The only downside is that the restaurant aims at the french tourists, so don't expect to get authentic thai cuisine.

We have just returned from a fantastic meal at Smile. Our table was ready and waiting for our 8.30pm booking and we were promptly seated and ordered our drinks. We had a very reasonable bottle of Australian red wine priced at 690 baht which was good value. We were a table of 4 and between us ordered 3 of the... More
