Had a great meal here! Friendly service, great Thai food. Lots for the adults and kids to choose from. A must stop if staying in a resort along the beach in Khao Lak! Yum

This modest-looking beach restaurant next to the Merlin hotel is definitely worth visiting. The menu is short, but to the point and the crew is doing their best to keep the patrons happy. Just remember to order "Thai spicy" if you love it hot.

Ideally located about 200 m from the Merlin, the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful, the food delicious and cheap. Loved the location just back from the beach, would have amazing sunsets on a fine night

HI, We visited this restaurant a few times when it was on the beach - loved it. We will be back in July, could you please let us know exactly where it is. Your information that it exists is the only post I have found since the removal of the beach restaurants. Thanks

Gone they have not set up again, ill be there in 2 weeks so im going on a "my friend " hunt to see what I can find out it was one of the nicest restos in KL
Does anyone know where " My Friend " Restaurant has moved to, I know it was knocked down by the government. I have been told it's along the main road by the police boat but unsure if this is the same restaurant and staff.

My Friend Restaurant is located on the main road, next to Bang-niang temple entrance.

Does anybody know if this is the same restaurant that used to be on Bang Niang beach? (Closed by the authorities in June/July). I really hope so, it was one of our favourites!
