This link shows taxi rates from Bang Niang, second largest township in Khao Lak walagata.com/w/…Taxi_Prices_2012-13.jpg To the Beyond is shown as 350 baht. It will probably be 350 - 400 baht from Beyond to Bang La On which is 5 minutes further down the highway. This will be in a songthaew, a truck carrying up to 8 passengers in the back. No rickshaws or tuk tuks in Khao Lak.

There are several Indian restaurants in Khao Lak but as our favourite has closed I can't recommend any other. Hopefully someone will.

Your two replies now re transport are entirely irrelevant to the information requested. And riding a no doubt uninsured moped anywhere let alone from Chalong to Khao Lak is not a safe recommendation.

Sorry, there's no local bus service. that serves just Khao Lak or the locality only a through service to and from Takua Pa and main service Bangkok - Phuket. Nothing to stop you using the Takua Pa service to Bang la On (the main township where it stops with other points on the way) if you can locate where to get on/get off. Reception will probably tell you.
