We visited last year and again last week and love Khao Niau. Jonus provides excellent service and the Thai food is amazing - some of the best in Khao Lak. I would recommend the special hot pot they do - a bit of a Thai fondu! Amazing flavours. A great family spot for dinner.

Hidden because it is a bit hard to find. We almost gave up when we finally found it. Though Isaan food is really not my favourite reginal Thai food this restaurant is offering very tasty Isaan food. For the quality and this type of restaurant (this is a proper restaurant) the prices are reasonable.

We are always fond of Isaan food, having discovered its magic and how different it is from mainstream Thai food. We were told that Khao Lak has many Isaan restaurant, and Khao Niau is probably one of the most delicious and tourist-friendly (i.e. clean, safe, affordable) Isaan restaurants. Don't be deterred by some German words and German/Western items on its... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a staff member at Beyond Resort Khao Lak and we were not disappointed. It was our last night in Thailand after 10 days and it was without doubt the best meal we had in the entire trip. The restaurant is jointly owned by a Swiss man and a Thai business partner and it...

We ate here twice, the food was superb. Try the Laab, it is absolutely delicious and not from the area, so nice to try something new. The service is great, one of the owners is German and was very attentive, offering help with the menu and suggestions, checking in with us if the food was great. It backs onto the... More

Overall a fantastic meal, the Isaan dishes recommended by the Swiss host Jonas were both excellent and memorable. Som Tam Thai Sai Boo (papaya salad with preserved crabs) and Nam Prik Mu Pak Tot (tempura vegetable dip) have been mentioned by many reviewers here with good reason - it's with a detour here to try them alone. Nice decor and... More

Our second time at this excellent restaurant in Khao Lak was as good as the first. The menu was varied and the cuisine was served with attention. A Thai delight with admirable people, a dog who sat quietly in the corner and a busy market outside - a real treat in the most unlikely place.

This rustic set restaurant was recommended by hotel staff. The thai wait staff were not very pleasant but a foreign manager I presume was the only exception. He even brought over a magazine for me while waiting for my meal as i was dining alone. Food took a while to arrive but tasted good even looked nice presentation wise. Nice... More
