Description: Hill Tribe Restaurant was opened in 2008. Its chef and owner comes from the area of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand and therefore Hill Tribe Restaurant does not only offer excellent and genuine Thai food but it also introduces its guests to a traditional and unique North Thai dining experience. Families with children are welcome - we have special dishes for kids in our menu. Reservations for Khan Tok (north Thai dinner) recommended.

“Excellent food, beautifully presented”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We had a lovely meal, the Panang curry was the best dish I had on the whole holiday.
The food was beautifully presented & the staff were quietly attentive.
I also thought it was good value for money & would definately say that this restaurant is well worth the taxi ride.

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Tasty food with some northern cuisine specialites. Sauces dosn't taste natrium glutamate like some other places. Staff is friendly and helps if you have difficulities to choose from wide wide list :) Location isn't the best but this place is worth a trip. In our books Hilltribes is no.1 in Khao lak area.

“Really lovely meal, wish we had found it sooner.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We went here during the last few days of our holiday otherwise we would have gone a few times. There was a power cut on the night we went and the first part of the evening was in candlelight and the cooks wore head torches to cook the food. The quality of the food was really good and the staff were very friendly and efficient. This was the best meal we had in Khao Lak by far. Definitely give this a try if you like authentic Thai food.

“Hard to make a wrong choice even with an extensive menu”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We have been there 3 times already in 7 days. Tried different things each time and we loved every meal. In particular the prawns and mushrooms in red whisky sauce and the banana flower salad are going to be hard to forget or to match.
Prices are fair even without the 10% discount, service is warm and pleasant and if you like Thai food you are going to enjoy this place.

“Authentic Food”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We loved the Hill Tribe Restaurant. It has fresh, organic food nicely prepared. There were even beautiful vegetable carvings on the plate. The only reason I am not giving it five star is that we were there during the day and it was very hot because there did not seem to be any fans - at least none on while we were there.However, the food was terrific. I particularly liked the variety of fresh spicy Thai salads- my favourite type of Northern Thai food. I would certainly recommend it and we will go back.
