Or take a look at the extensive traditional Thai menu to experience all the different flavour Thailand has to offer. Come in the midday heat to enjoy the cool ocean breeze at the beachside bar. Or visit for a romantic sunset dinner on one of Khao Lak's finest white sand beaches.

“The best beach dinning spot in Khao Lak”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Stayed at Kantary Beach Resort next door again after one year judt because of two factors: the beast beach in area and beachfront restaurant all around. Ao Thong is the best out of them, nice, ultra clean, fast and attentive staff who serve yummy food. Prices are cheaper than in town and much cheaper than in Phuket area and food is so much better and always fresh. Menu is very wide, but if you can not find your favourite food just ask. Owner is super friendly person who surely knows how to run a business.

“What a wonderful location”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst out on a scooter one day, we only had lunch there but it was excellent both in quality, presentation, price. Then and of course the lovely setting in which the restaurant was located was superb. The staff were polite and very welcoming. Not much more to say apart from if you are passing White Sands beach give this beach restaurant a try and I hope your experience is as good as our was.

“Superb food in a superb location”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We were staying at the Kantary and most evenings we enjoyed a pleasant stroll along the beach to visit Ao Thong Beach Restaurant which we had read about on Tripadvisor.

We were not disappointed and we enjoyed some excellent meals and drinks which were reasonably priced and excellent value.

The restaurant is very well supervised by the owner Mr Nueng, who is supported by his very hard working and efficient team of young staff who really seemed to be enjoying their work which makes for a very pleasant atmosphere.

The restaurant has a fantastic location right on the beach with the sound of the waves lapping on the beach which makes an ideal place for an evening candlelit meal.

The fish cakes were fantastic.

Superb food, friendly staff and highly recommended.

“Tasty food at the right price!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Next to Sarojin Hotel is the Ao Thong Restaurant on the beach which serves very tasty and classical Thai food for reasonable price. The food is authentic and not customized to foreigners. We had wonderful Tiger Prawns, whole roasted fish, squid, beef salad, and green papya salad. The spring rolls were the only disappointment. The service is prompt and the setting is funky beach.

“What an outlook!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Decided to have lunch here while visiting White Sand beach what a beautiful part of Khao Lak, food was excellent, as was the service. A wonderful place to spend an afternoon, a swim in beautiful White Sand beach then up to the restaurant for a superb meal.
