One of our favourites is Orchid Cafe which is just outside the entrance to the Sands. Very small, one lady in a bamboo hut out the front cooking cheap and very tasty food.

Another fave but a bit of a walk (can easily get a quick taxi up) is Everyday. It is on the other side of the road up towards the entrance to Bang La On. We got a taxi up and walked back as it was downhill :)

Lots of really good places to eat close by but don't miss the great food at the Bang Niang markets.

Our favourite and IMO best restaurant in Khao Lak is Smile a hundred metres or so from the entrance to the Sands on the opposite side, not cheap but worth a visit; just before it is the excellent Tiffy's Cafe for Thai and hearty German food; Dee Dee's cheap, cheerful and very good local restaurant opposite Tiffy's. Plenty of choice all the way through Bang La On. Have a look at the TA restaurant listings.

Another vote for smile ( our favourite) you have to eat here at least once, Bussaba, mojo''s, there are plenty to choose from. Hope you love the Sands and KL, have a great trip.

Another vote form me for Orchid Café, just to the right from the driveway to The Sands. A lovely family café, great local food at very cheap prices. Our favourite Thai food anywhere by far, (Thailand or Australia).

Smile, across the road and 150 metres along is great, Thai/French fusion a lot more expensive but worth the visit. You will have to book, even in low season.

We are going to KL in June 16, a good place to look is Cathy's and Gary's website. I will be interested in the replies for your question.
