Nop's Sun Ray Restaurant opens 12th April 2013

Khao Lak regulars will be aware of the special dinners inspired and prepared at the Sunset Bar at the southern end of Khuk Khak Beach by Khun Nop. Now Nop together with his equally talented cousin Yui have opened up a new restaurant in a lovely garden setting, called the Sun Ray Restaurant. Is is located in Khuk Khak village and is best found by turning left from the main highway just after the Khuk Khak Bus Station/Bang Niang daily market, signposted Orchid Beach Resort and Blue Lagoon Resort. Proceed to T junction at the bottom and turn right. The restaurant is about 50 metres on your left with car parking just before.

The official opening of the Sun Ray takes place this Friday, 12th April 2013 but we and our friends had a taste (literally) of things to come at a "soft opening" dinner last Saturday. At the moment menu selection is in discussion with Nop as it is at the Sunset Bar with him making suggestions according to your taste. Prices vary according to that selection and if you have fish or tiger prawns it is based on market price.

On Saturday we shared appetisers consisting of Nop's speciality mixed chicken and prawn satay and a local dish of edible leaves which you fill with various "snack bits" and sauces (must ask Nop what the name is!!!). This was followed by a Mung fish (very meaty) per couple with spicy sweet and sour, tamarind and special recipe sauces on the side, fried rice with vegetable and cashew nuts, Sweet was mixed fresh fruit with two types of mango.

Beer and soft drinks are available and you are welcome to bring your own wine.

Here are pics of our dinner party https:/…

It is Nop and Yui's intention to open all year, appealing to locals and visitors alike.

Basically, it is the same formula as the Sunset Bar but in a different setting.

Why not try both?

Yeah, worth the visit, grab a Taxi & be sure to take phone # as may need driver to contact Khun Nop & clarify directions.

As Arandora stated in Khuk Khak village proximity.

Its a different experience but great service & servility by the staff.

Try the grilled tamarind tiger prawns.....absolute heaven.

Nop doesn't mind if you byo wine, so we did , all the way from OZ !

Give Khun Nop a ring & discuss your dining preferences prior to visiting.

He needs to visit the local market.

Couldn't write review as restaurant not listed yet.

No. Not near Sands. It is mid way between JWM and Orchid Resort. Best to phone up and make reservation and take a taxi. The address is 35 Moo 3, Khuk Khak.
