Per owner Francky, soft opening will be on 27th July.

Now to see if TA will move the previous reviews back from Takua Pa where they have been put for some reason to Khao Lak.

So after two weeks at Khao Lak we finally put the last piece into our culinary jigsaw. Last night we went to the relocated reopened Smile Restaurant. The only difference from last year is the location; food's still excellent and Francky's still in top form. The restaurant itself seems to be more spacious albeit with a few less tables. Thoroughly recommend and this is just the first of a few visits we will be making over the next couple of weeks. Smile is truly back on the streets of Khao Lak.

Smile is now located at the northern end of Bang La On on the eastern side of the highway. Its north of the Happy Snapper Bar and virtually opposite The Sands.

Good to know, good to go!

Having moved up the road 800 metres because the greedy landlord put the rent up excessively, TA relocated Smile reviews to Takua Pa. Now TA has moved it back to Khao Lak but have removed all its previous 400+ reviews! However, with comments like Mrs.J's I'm sure the reviews will start flowing in again.

We ate there last night....YUMMMMMM. The best food we have eaten on our travels this time around. The restaurant is really nice. Prices are good and they have a great kids "meal" for 180 THB. This includes fresh home made chicken strips, spaghetti, fruitsalad and oreo's for dessert.

Love the complimentary starters and dessert, this is a really nice touch! We are going again tonight!!!

... And to think they thought a smaller place would be less busy and Franck was worried because TA had deleted all the reviews from previous location.

Why does TA have The Gold Elephant restaurant listed under Takuapa when it's at the south end of Bang La On in Khao Lak?

I know technically, Khao Lak is part of Takuapa district, but It seems to me this should be 'moved' too.

If someone posts a review in the wrong location, TA's addressing system will put it in that location. It is particularly confusing since Khao Lak is not a recognised postal area and so review listings may appear under Phang Nga Province, Phang Nga (meaning the provincial town Phang Nga), Takua Pa (the district town), Khuk Khak (the local town), even one for Bang Niang Beach (which I'm trying to get relocated.

It is up to TA Members to report reviews in the wrong location using the link against the individual review or through the Help Centre link at the foot of each page.

It would be helpful to keep topics relevant to the original subject please. :-)
