Greate food. Even better service. Make sure to book in advance. And if you want a curry dish it will take 30 minutes to prepare. Worth the wait :)

Not sure what the hype is (we had to book 2 days in advance) and the food was pretty good but not the best we ate in our two weeks in Thailand. It is slightly more pricey than some of the other restaurants on the strip. The owner is very nice, apologising for wait times and offering complimentary after dinner... More

Based on the great reviews we were expecting something better than the numerous Thai restaurants that abound in this tourist resort. This is one of the best in the area but is nothing special. Good food and decent sizes make it reasonable value. Busy with the tables squeezed in, there is a good vibe amongst the tourist only customers. The... More

Our special night at Smile was sooo great we can't wait to return. Make sure you book as it gets soo busy, the amazing French owner is one of the most vibrant and welcoming hosts we have encountered and speaks to all the dining guests personally. His Thai wife and her team are exceptional chefs. It was pouring outside unexpectedly... More

Lovely, busy place, made all the more special by the fabulous owner, proprietor. He could not have been more helpful. You are shown the food before making your choice and they have house specials. Not overly expensive and good fresh fusion food. Not typical Thai.
