Yummy Massaman curry

Lovely restaurant with inexpensive tasty food. Loved the Massaman curry! Great location right next to the bang niang markets so do the shopping and then have a nice dinner.

We had been to the market and decided to have a little look down the back streets for a place to eat. We stumbled across Khao Niau hidden behind the market. The atmosphere was calm relaxing the service was spot on. We were made most welcome and enjoyed a delicious meal.

If you like traditional spicy Thai food then this is the place for you. The food is based on Western Thailand Food, you can have your food as spicy as you like. Jonas is a great host looking after your every need. The menu reads like a novel and has something for everyone even the kids. If your not sure... More

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
