We came across this reastaurant during our recent trip in July 2014. The service from arrival, during and after the meal was exceptional. The French owner Frank welcomed us, explained the menu and took care of all our needs. The food was simple, fresh and very well cooked. This was real Thai/French fusion food served with joy.

A good variety of food and you know it is fresh as it is unique in that the waitress keeps coming along and showing various dishes that have recently been cooked, and she also brings out a tray with a couple of slabs of fish that had just been caught that morning - definitely fresh as I had some and...

My family and I were so impressed by our first night at the restaurant that we had to return once more to celebrate my sister's birthday. We were introduced to their signature dishes or ingredients which were available depending on the season. All their specials were very delicious (portions were good and extremely affordable). We had the snapper, blue marlin,... More

I went to this restaurant based on the review and I am not disappointed. Actually it is over my expectation so that I returned to this restaurant again after the first trial. Note that it only provides dinner and no lunch. The spring roll with chicken and cheeses inside is very good as a starter at dinner. The restaurant will... More

We had the pleasure of dining at Smile on the evening of August 13th 2014. We were greeted by a charming French man called Franc. The staff brought out sample plates of their most popular dishes and also the evenings specials, they explained what they were and seeing the food before ordering was most helpful. The restaurant was very busy... More

We have visited the Smile Restaurant twice so far on this visit and so far there has been absolutely nothing to complain about. When you enter the restaurant you are shown the actual specials and given a full description of the food. Mine host Francois is an absolute delight and his staff are superb. The food is excellent and then... More

Frank is the owner of this restaurant and first impressions were; what is this guy on...but once you become seated the service and attention to detail begins, complimentary starters, staff brought around sample dishes to help in selecting your dishes of choice, drink orders were taken and in no time drinks were on your table. As for the food; we... More

My family of four dined at smile on our last night in khao lak and we enjoyed it's quaint atmosphere. It's a busy place and you may need to consider a reservation but we were offered a table as soon as we arrived. Staff were friendly and the French owner was a character. I loved their spring rolls and we... More
