We visited on market night and the restaurant was very busy. The service was a little slow but once the order was taken it didn't take long for the food to arrive. I think the service was slow as the owner was taking his time to explain to each table about the food and recommending dishes to try. Personally I... More

During our 10 days stay in Khao Lak we’ve been 5 nights out for dinner in Khao Niau. For us this is the best restaurant in Khao Lak. Thai specialities are served as well as specialities from northeast Thailand the province Isan, which borders Cambodia and Laos. We really loved the Isan dishes because it was full of different great... More

We have been in Khao Lak for almost a week and a lot of the Thai restaurants in the area have similar dishes and quality. We tried this place and it has Northern Thai cuisine and has a great selection. Food was very tasty. We both got curries. Cocktails also not bad! Heading back again before we leave. Recommended.

If you are on a holiday in Khao Lak, you must have a dinner in this restaurant. They have excellent spicy thai salads and other Isaan style food. They are very friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant is nice and very thai.

I love Thai food but not too familiar with Isan food. Ordered Laab mu and grilled beef. Laab mu was fantastic. I wanted it spicy and they got it on the dot. Beef was a bit tough for my liking but the sauce made it better. The owners was very attentive and comes around to check if everythings alright. The... More

Lots of choice, guidance from the staff when choosing the degree of hotness! Bit of a wait to get a seat but able to have a drinks at the bar.
