Eating in Khuk Khak

My family and I are going to the JW Marriott in Khao Lak this early July, and we were wondering where we can go to eat? We have no transportation so we would have to walk. Is there any recommended places to eat at that time of year? I have heard that all the nearby beach restaurants will be closed?

Next to the hotel there is a small complex with a Thai restaurant, Premrudi. If there are no beach restaurants open, the nearest restaurant inland is several KM away, so you will need a taxi.

If all the restaurants to the right of the JWM on the beach are closed, the Famai to the left usually tries to stay open all year. As well as the Premrudi (Thai) and Antonio's (Italian) near the main entrance there is another one which may be open too. If you walk (or take a short taxi ride) up the road from the JWM you have two options when you reach the T Junction about 1km away. Turn left and a hundred metres or so is a decent local restaurant frequented by the JWM staff (whose accommodation block is just opposite) as well as local villagers and tourists who come across it. Turn right and go through Khuk Khak Village until you reach a fork in the road. Turn right and a hundred metres or so is the excellent and unique Sun Ray Restaurant - see tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297914-i10908-k…

Continue past there about 500 metres to the Blue Lagoon Resort which has a very good and inexpensive restaurant just opposite the beach.

There is also a handful of restaurants on either side of the highway near the entrance to the Khuk Khak Bus Station, about 10 minutes by taxi. On the left of the highway going from this area towards the JWM just opposite the petrol station is "Khao Lak's Best Kept Secret". This is the Chonticha 2 which is a Mookrata Restaurant, often incorrectly referred to as the Korean Barbeque. It is a barbeque, but a Thai style barbeque. See khao-lak-magazine.com/eating-out/… Great DIY all you can eat cooking and great value at 119 baht each.

From the JWM to the restaurants, bars and 3 afternoons a week (Mondays, Wednesday and Saturday) market in Bang Niang is about 10-15 minutes by shuttle or taxi, cost about 300 baht - see walagata.com/w/…Taxi_Prices_2012-13.jpg ), 5 minutes or so further on to Bang La On where most restaurants and shops are to be found.
