What a great combination . A typical gregarious Frenchman who cant stop talking about his food and demonstrating it by putting food on your table to see the real thing.
The choice of food was whatever you wanted - European with a Thai twist, or Thai with a Eurpoean twist.
Out of our 5 nights we went there twice

Good quality food, good value and great service. Just opened at a new location down the road a bit but look for the "Smile" sign.

We recently ate at this restaurant several times whilst in Khao Lak. It is now our FAVORITE restaurant of all time. Every meal was exceptionally good. Frank and his wonderful staff make this dining experience something else.

We loved the fact that they had a "kids" plate, which our 5 year old thought was fab. Just simple things that kids love to eat-fantastic.

The restaurant is new and super clean. The Smile chicken dish is sooooo yummy! As was all the food. Fresh and good value. Keep up the good work.

We as a family were always made feel welcome and had a pleasurable dining experience every time.

Frank, you and your staff are a credit to this place and we can't wait to come back and see you all again next year.

Thankyou all!

We found this restaurant from the reviews on TA and decided to pay it a visit.
After becomming bored of our resorts menu we had a wander into Khao Lak centre for some Lunch.
We found Smiles straight away, nestled between a few local Thai shops, when we entered we were informed they were not open till 6pm but they would still try to accomadate us!
We were reccomended the mozarella spring rolls and subsequently ordered them. They we beautiful! A nice twist on a thai dish.
We found the owner ver friendly and obviously accomodating.
Due to this experience we decided to return that evening for Dinner. We were presented with nice examples of the 'special dishes' and found ourselves ordering one of them. The food was beautiful, we were served with a small, complimentary starter before our ordered starter even arrived and didnt seem to wait too long for our mains.

The only cons are that they did not have a dessert menu (although they had icecream which was nice) and the service is very laid back, you will either love the attentive, pushy waiters or the relaxed, call me over style. Smiles is the latter of the two.
