Such awesome green curry paste...all those reviews we're absolutely right. We notice this place on last night, but it's only reason to go back to Khao Sok. Very reasonable prices and such a smiley staff...evening with a pleasure mind. Do not afraid with spiceness....pet pet pet.

Everything about this restaurant was amazing. Peaceful and relaxed. Extraordinary food. Amazing value. I am not sure anywhere else on the street compares.

We were in Surat Thani for most of a week. We ate at Pawn's four times. We skipped only when it was full of families with children or we just wanted to try other places. The food is great.

Our family of four with two Tweens dreamed of Pawn's fried chicken breast and fries while we adults found the garlic and pepper chicken, banana flower curry and noodle soup to be the best in Thailand so far. This place fills up so arrive early evening.

After reading reviews here we had to try Pawn's restaurant and it lived up to expectations. Good choice, decent sized portions and very well spiced. The Mussaman and Paneng curries were superb.

We chanced upon this little restaurant after dinner at our hotel (the pad thai was not delicious). Pawn's Restaurant was a little crowded; people shared tables. Nevertheless, we stopped by for tom yum soup and some green curry. Gosh! Fresh food and delicious cuisine in the mountain! Guess what? We went back for dinner the following evening and were not...

Followed the advise of others and wasn't disappointed. The service was timely, the food was fresh and we returned for dinner, too. The tempura veggies with chili sauce...great start to your meal. Enjoy.

I ate in about eight different places in this little village, from the incredibly jolly rotund lady with her street stall, to the two restaurants north-side of the river, to accomodation restaurants, and this place was certainly the best. What was great is that their dishes were overflowing with ingredients (the other places seemed to have just onion!), as well... More

Interesting restaurant, the place is simple but the food is delicious. Also the service is very attentive and sympathetic. It is a clear example that appearances can be deceiving, in this case positive. I recommend it to anyone visiting Khao Sok. The best, the curries!
