We found this restaurant truly outstanding. Having lived many years in Thailand we came back to enjoy a holiday in Khao Lak and were surprised to discover a restaurant serving Thai Isaan food. What a great discovery! Food was genuine, professionally prepared by a family from Isaan. They were offering a good variety of menus. It was truly unique. During... More

Had the chu chi curry and cashew chicken. Some of the best food we have had in our month in thailand, would recommend! Good service and fair prices (120-160 baht for main)

We dropped in for dinner after visiting the night market Good food and service at a fair price. Fine selection of food to suit most pallets. Not over priced and there is a buzz to the place Enjoyable dinner

We had been to Khao Niau two years before and were looking forward to revisiting only to find it has literally been demolished!! Fortunately they have now relocated just down the road from their original location. Not on the main road but back down towards Baan Yan about 6 doors down. Food did not disappoint and was big portioned. Reasonable... More

We've been in Khao Niau twice. We planned to go there for the Sunday buffet, but we learned that it is not offered anymore. So we went for other dishes we never had, mainly from Isan, because you do not get Isan food in Khao Lak elsewhere. Food was wonderful - very spicy though - and we enjoyed both evenings... More

The Khao Niau Restaurant is situated on Bang Niang Main Street, just 20-30m from the high way / traffic lights. Direct access from the restaurant back entrance to the afternoon / evening market (Mon, Wed, Sat). As said we had great expectations, but most of the came short. The Chicken Satay stick meats were very thick, tasteless and one piece... More

The food here was delicious and recommend that you try the hot pot as it comes as a DIY kit!! lol we loved it, sitting at low level table and sat legs crossed on the cushions and cooked our meal. The boiling pot was left on a hot stone and then the fish, chicken and veg were left on separate... More

We had to wait pretty long and we were so hungry so that's 4/5. Worth it in the end. The steam pot was explained to us in detail before we started. The meat and the soup and all the veggies tasted great. We also had some steamed duck and sticky rice. Overall very good value and delicious food with friendly... More
