“Best Thai Restaurant in Khao Lak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

We only found this restaurant during our last night. The food was the best we had in Khao Lak. Authentic yet not too spicy, nicely decorated and most importantly each starter and main course we ordered tasted excellent! Would highly recommend if you are in Khao Lak. We ate in restaurants by the sea, by the main road and in 4-5 star resorts but this we enjoyed the most!

“An amazing place for dining, with excellent food and an open kitchen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

During our nearly four week vacation in Thailand, Raebang Thai Restaurant was hands down our most popular and most visited restaurant. We stayed in Khao Lak for six days in November 2011 and four of the days (including my birthday) we visited this restaurant. Owner Sa and staff were always very friendly and welcoming. All the tables are set up to surround an open kitchen and it was fascinating to watch all the activity going on, but also seeing how it was all orchestrated and things came together under the direction of Sa, the chefs and the crew. It was interesting to see how everybody worked together hand in hand, while she ran the kitchen, greeted and seated the guests, took orders, calculated guests bills, followed up with the guests to see if they were enjoying their meal and the many other things she was doing upon each and every time we visited.

Once the food was cooked and delivered it was simply a masterpiece. The fresh ingredients, spices, presentation, and the end product of dishes taste was unequaled by anything else we had eaten in Thailand. Sa made us feel welcomed at each visit and really took pride in her food and wanted each and every customer to feel as though they were her personal concern. As a matter of fact, we were so impressed by the taste of the food upon our first visit that we decided to take a cooking class from owner, Sa, the next morning.

This restaurant features the best of 'old' customer service that one sadly sees in todays business world. We visited during a slow travel period, but this restaurant was unique in that it was the only restaurant that had each and every table occupied every evening.

We would highly recommend if you are in the Khao Lak area to definitely make it a point to stop by the Raebang restaurant for a great dinner and be entertained by watching the happenings in the open kitchen.

“Thai food at best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

Unlike so many empty restaurants in Bang Niang, Rabeang has never problems in finding customers. The secret is very good thai food at honest prices. You can try the tuna steak, the bbq filet with six different sauces and if you like playing with fire the hot pan shrimps, coming literally boiling at your table. The kitchen is open view, service is fast and if your idea of spicy food is different from the thai average just ask.
