Recommended by friends and also found on Trip Advisor, this restaurant was well worth the visit. You need to book - even in low season. Lovely mix of options of Thai style and French, with a good selection of choices. Smile Spaghetti was great, as was the brochette's and the blue marlin. Lovely complimentary appetisers. Prices very reasonable.

I've never been to a restaurant where the waitress brings you almost the entire menu (plated) before you decide! Good idea though so you can see what the dishes are like before you order... One of the better meals we had in Khao Lak, but can be busy so I think you are wise to book a table in advance.

The staff were attentive without being intrusive and the food was good and reasonably priced. You do need to book as several nights when we walked past the sign at the front of the restaurant said they were booked out for the night and sometimes the next night as well. I wasn't sure about the spring rolls with mozzarella but... More

As with all the other reviewers, we did have to book and were looking forward to a fantastic meal. It was very nice, but to be honest, we did enjoyed other meals at a place up the road which was cheaper and more authentic. Staff are obviously well drilled at their job and it was a little strange being showed... More

We ate at Smile twice because the food was SO GOOD Service was great and to top it off both nights we received a complimentary plate of nibbles at the beginning and a shot of Limoncello to round the night off. Serves are more than generous and the most difficult bit is trying to fit in 3 courses and trying... More

My friends and I enjoyed a memorable meal at Smile restaurant last night ... a fusion of French and Thai. We were impressed with the choice and quality of the dishes that were shown to us at our table before we ordered our meal and the service we received. We shared two entrees,three mains and two desserts. Each course was... More

We were surprised we had to book 2 days in advance of eating at Smile but it was worth the wait. Delicious food combining French and Thai influences. Children are catered for too with their own special menu, complete with fruit salad and Oreos. Well worth visiting. Friendly staff who show you a great many of the dishes available on... More

Returning to Thailand this year we had to include Khaolak just so we could have another dinner at Smile. It was a case of third time just as good as the first. The food is absolutely delicious and a visit here is a must.you have to book on line. This is our third favourite restaurant in the world 🇹🇭😀thanks Frank.

We had a wonderful meal at Smile on the first night of our holiday. The owner and his staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and the food was really good. Highly recommended!
