My wife and I dined here three times in our 2-night stay in Khao Sok. You simply cannot beat the value...Food was delicious on every occasion and the owner is simply lovely. Well worth a try when you're in Khao Sok.

I can't believe all the good reviews for this place - this was one of the worst meals I've ever had, not just in Thailand... After waiting for half an hour just to place our orders, we couldn't have been more disappointed when our food finally arrived. Massaman curry was so full of sugar that it wasn't edible - it...

8 of us went there just for the Massaman, and it did not disappoint. A family told us it was the best meal they had in Thailand after a month of traveling. The servers were friendly, spoke minimal English, and it was a great environment, clean, friendly, and pretty. Don't leave Kao Soke without trying it! Cheap too!

Although it looks shabby, don't be fooled again...go there, order a meal and I guarantee that you won't eat anywhere else during your stay in Khao Sok. Would come here again!

That was probably the best food I had in a while. I ordered the Masaman curry (by far the best I had in Thailand, and I have ordered it plenty of times in the past) and my friend ordered the Green curry. The dishes were super yummy and (although the prices seemed high compared to other restaurants around) the restaurant... More

Walking down the 'main street' in Khao Sok doesn't exactly give you an abundance of choice when it comes to restaurant options but we were delighted to find this place. We stepped in mainly because it was the only place that had other people in it but we didn't leave disappointed. The curry and soup were delicious and the staff... More

My particular favorite was the Panaeng curry. Pad thai was not so great. The first time we went to Pawn's we were... More

One of our favorite places on our trip. We went back several times and wished we could go back more. The owner is a very friendly woman. Everything good. Try the banana flower dishes and the spicy mixed vegetables.
