Went here 2 months ago and found the food fantastic and staff very welcoming and informative. Recently returned and found the exact opposite. Disappointed in the vegetable mussaman curry which consisted of copious amounts of watery sauce and very little vegetables, and a very small serve of rice.not returning this time.

We booked this restaurant on our last night and enjoyed the friendly, helpful service. As we are both in our seventies the Manager seated us away from the Market side so there was less noise and advised us on what dishes to try. The food was tasty and not too spicy and it is definitely a place worth visiting.

Not sure what all the rave reviews are about. Had the hot pot and a few other dishes that I can't remember. The food is different and probably traditional to the northern region but big lumps of lemon grass and other herbs make the hot pot hard to eat. Tasty and different but no better quality than most of the... More

It is a really nice place. A restaurant with authentic Isaan kitchen and really delicious thai food (the menu is available in English and German with explanations about the food and lots of informations about the Isaan kitchen). The service is very nice and they take the time to explain everything. They can recommend dishes if you are not sure... More

After reading lots of reviews and this restaurant having the no 1 rating for trip advisor in KhaoLak, we were disappointed, particularly with the service. It was a long wait for the order to be taken, the drinks were forgotten and a long wait for the food to arrive. The food was the saviour of the night. Fresh, tasty and... More

We had nice dinner at Khao Niau restaurant on March. But we experienced very bad days from next day for 1 week. Nice location, average food, worst service.. Please enjoy your dinner with travel insurance!

I and my partner dined there several month ago. And we had a very bad experience there and wrote about it on TA, but deleted. I will never visit again. Be careful with hot pot!

The restaurant is just next to the Bang Niang Market. The food is in thai transitional. Beverage is cheap with comparing to other restaurant. Food is good. The hot pot seems so good but I didn't have chance to try. My family had dinners at this restaurant for 2 times during my visit at Khao Lak. It is recommended to... More
