We went to this restaurant twice during our visits. The food was great especially the blue marlin fish dish. We found that most of the food had an european influence (mozzarella cheese in the spring rolls ) and there wasn't a great deal of difference between the green curry and their red curry. The service was quite good and the... More

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.
