We had dinner here with our two young kids last week. The food was delicious, large portion sizes, and beautifully presented. However, it was our most expensive meal in Khao Lak, so I wouldn't eat there every night. We liked the little extras like free appetizers and small desserts for the kids, but felt uncomfortable when the kids were tired... More

Great meal to be had at this cozy restaurant. A french twist on Thai cuisine free amuse boucle followed by a surprising but delicious chicken spring rolls with mozzarella which my partner and I shared. Followed by Blue marlin with ginger sauce which was the best fish dish is have eaten for a long time. My partner had mixed grill,... More

Lovely staff - average food. The owner was exceptionally accommodating - reflecting its high trip advisor rating and the place was absolutely packed on a Saturday night but the food was uninspiring - the specials which they roll out seem designed to show the quantity rather than quality.

French cuisine with a Tai fusion, you need to book in advance as the restaurant is always busy. Note it is shut on a Sunday. The food is delicious freshly cooked to order, the portions are ample. They also give you a small tasting plate with dip while you wait for your food, then finish the meal with a small... More

We had dinner the other night at Smile. Food was good, but not amazing. Tried the spring rolls with mozzarella which were nice. I had the mixed grill which was goid and my husband had the Massaman curry which he enjoyed. The accompaniments were a bit weird and didn't really work. Service was good, if a bit '80s! Restaurant was... More

The Restaurant has a very good reputation - everyone you speak to has heard of it, and the food is indeed very good. However, you have to book and the service is quite poor. Very nice food, but to be honest the food in other restaurants is just as good and the service is definitely better elsewhere.

We booked a table at Smile Restaurant after reading the reviews & weren't disappointed! Delicious food & the owner is very friendly. Highly recommend you book a table if you are visiting Khao Lak!

As per our Google search, this restaurant came up as Nbr 1. We made a booking, which is pretty much mandatory if you want to get in. They have 2 sittings, 6pm and 8.30pm I think it was. Thai food with a yummy twist. Good quality. Good prices. Was worth going. 🙂👍
