Truly authentic and the most delicious meal we had on the trip! The restaurant is on the main road just before you get to the main shopping strip so be sure to keep your eyes peeled as you do not want to miss this place!

We ate there twice and it was sooo delicious. Compared to the most other restaurants in this area (e.g. Rabeang, Green Pepper, Siam,...), has Hill Tribe a very authentic kitchen with great thai food as it should be! We really loved it! The service was super, very friendly, with a big smile! Hill Tribe is just 'Wow', our Number One... More

Awesome Authentic Thai for spot. They were very willing to change spice to our taste. Great dishes include the lemon chicken and Tom yum soup.

Good food, good service and a blessed relief from the hot sun. Great place to go to if you are in the town although not within walking distance, unless your at the market.

Lovely food, warm and friendly hospitality. Staff at our resort passed on a "hello" to the HillTribe owners via us, as they are friends and hadn't seen each other in a while. We were then considered friends and recieved complimentary fruit platter desert! Very lovely people

A favourite restaurant from previous visit to Khao Lak. As usual the food was excellent, but the staff have forgotten about Service and the experience that brings. We were the only people in the restaurant for lunch, and the staff were noticeably non interactive and hiding. A far cry from the smiling interactive experience we had come to expect. The... More

Our second visit to Hill Tribe was not as memorable as the first. Food is very good, service was a little slow considering the restaurant was not full. Centrally located to most resorts Hill a Tribes is worth visiting for dinner.

Upon entering you step back in time into a really rustic country setting with lots of artifacts, plants, water features and chunky wooden furniture. You can imagine you are in an Hill Tribe home dinning out. The food was very good we shared a starter which was an appetiser for two, consisting of Dragon Balls, Tempura Prawns, Spring Rolls and...

Description
Hill Tribe Restaurant was opened in 2008. Its chef and owner comes from the area of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand and therefore Hill Tribe Restaurant does not only offer excellent and genuine Thai food but it also introduces its guests to a traditional and unique North Thai dining experience.
Families with children are welcome - we have special dishes for kids in our menu.

Reservations for Khan Tok (north Thai dinner) recommended.
