smile restaurant is next to the Kantary where we are staying - lovely 5 minute walk down the beach. the food and service is great with stunning views and half the price of our hotel - it's pretty rustic but that adds to the charm. well worth a visit.

It's true as folks have written that you do need to make a reservation. This place fills up even in the off-season, and you can book online if you can't call or stop in to make a booking. While they do offer Thai food the owner will tell you that there are many good Thai food restaurants in the area... More

We visited this restaurant due to it been the number one restaurant in the area. We booked a night in advance by popping into the restaurant the night before and asking to make a reservation.

No wonder it's rated No 1 in Khao Lak. We had a great meal here with great service and food. Don't go looking for Thai dishes as he does western. As the owners says the Thai people do the best Thai food so he does not try and compete. The food here is the best we had in our ten... More

The staff and owner were very friendly and hospitable from the moment we arrived. We shared some entrees one of which was spring rolls with mozerella cheese, delicious! Great prawns wrapped in some type of filo wrap and panko crumbed prawns. The mains were equally delicious but too big and none of the 4 of us could finish our meal.... More

Very busy small restaurant had to book a day or two ahead even in off season. The staff are all about marketing and do a great job in promoting the menu by showing you completed dishes the food looks great but I was not that impressed by the taste. Desert was a treat we had a Cream Brulee to share... More

This restaurant ticks all the boxes. Amazing food, great value for great food. Not the cheapest in town but the best. Unfortunately closed for a month due to low season. But definitely worth a visit when opens again.
