An early message for visitors to Khao Lak April to July. The very popular Smile Restaurant is to relocate from its current location at the southern end, beach side of the highway in Bang La On to the northern end, mountain side of the highway in Bang La On nearly opposite the entrance to the Sands Resort.
It will close at its new location at the end of April and open in its new one in about July, depending on how long the fitting out of the new premises takes.
Typical of some Thai landlords when a business is successful they up the rent for a share of the profits. The owners of Smile have chosen to not renew their lease at the new rent, moving to the new premises instead.
This move will add more choice to the already good range of restaurants at that end of town, such as Tiffy's, Ma Ma Tonie's and Orchid.
