Description: 10 years of Hill Tribe Restaurant! Hill Tribe Restaurant was opened on 10 October 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. Organic food, freshly prepared daily and cooked with passion. Families with children are welcome - we have some favourite kids´s dishes in our menu, such as Hill Tribe burger, spaghetti, chicken nuggets and Viennese Schnitzel. Reservations for Khan Tok (north Thai dinner) recommended.

Anny and I rode past Hilltribes numerous times wondering what it was like..!!??..Tanmar recommended Hilltribes as the best they have tasted in Thailand...!!..Big call we thought,so we had to try Hilltribes...
The first night I ordered Snapper in Tamarind sauce served sizzling on a hotplate...WOW..!!...
Then Kev and Julie recommended Seafood cake...Cake..??..We thought..!!??...So,we ordered the seafood cake served in alfoil...Upon opening the alfoil,we knew from the fantastic aromas that this was a special meal...
Prawns,mussels,squid,fish and San's secret ingrediments...Delish..!!
Arandora recommended the Prawns in Thai red whiskey served on a sizzling hotplate too....So,on our last day we indulged and was delighted with such a wonderful meal...
The Thai red whiskey sauce is so..."Lick me off the plate..!!"...Beautiful..!!
Anny and I ate at Hilltribes no less than 7 times and was never disappointed with the service and friendliness of Khun San and his wife Khun Sao's wonderful preparation of the northern style Thai food...
Hilltribes is like Khao Lak..."You have to go there more than once..!!"

We found that the Hilltribes was the best restuarant we found in KL. The menu was quite extensive and even though the prices were slightly higher than other places, the food surpassed anything else. The flavours and spices just seemed to mingle in your mouth. One minute you could taste one spice and then the next another. They really complimented each other. The Hilltribe Fried pork was excellent. Highly recommend this restuarant to everyone.

The food at this place is different to what we found in any other place in Khoa Lak or Phuket. We ate there 2 nights prices were from 120b up to 300b for whole fish. We found the owners /cooks to be so friendly and bought us plates of mango at the end of the meal . Seafood cake was delicious as was the banana flower salad and the hill tribe beef. A place I would recommend especially if you like good food with fantastic presentation.

Highly recommend this family run traditional Thai restaurant. Run by a Northern Thai couple who were very welcoming. We ate at many restaurants in and around Khao Lak but this was far and away the best (so much that we returned time and again). The prices are very reasonable (around 120 bahts for a main dish). All the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The Northern Thai specials are something a bit different from what you get in all the other places. Really couldn't find a fault!
