Owner is French and runs a very good, busy restaurant with typical Thai dishes but also non traditional food. I would rate this restaurant 4,5! If one wants to escape from traditional Thai food, this is the place to be. Examples of the dishes are displayed outside restaurant with clear explanation by the owner. Spring rolls with mozarella, filled chicken... More

We had a lovely meal here and have booked for another visit. You need to book a few days in advance as it's so popular. Definitely recommend the smile chicken!

The menu is a little different to the usual Thai menus with some interesting European style dishes also. The food was good and the restaurant had an enjoyable bustling atmosphere. It was very busy while we... More

Only word of caution being that this restaurant had the feel that it is bordering on being a victim of it's own success - everything seemed a little chaotic and the staff seemed... More

Had booked in advance as always busy. Food and service great. Had blue marlin with coconut and lemon, loved it. A visit is definitely a must when visiting Khao Lak.

It's spaghetti dishes are also really good. We enjoyed it so much we came back again. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Give the creme brûlée a... More
