Top 10 restaurants in Khao Lak, Thailand

February 8, 2018 Venice Greaves

Just 80 kilometers north of Phuket, Khao Lak was essentially erased by the 2004 tsunami. But the town, and the tourist industry it relies on, has rebounded. It remains quieter than other coastal destinations, offering secluded beaches, tranquil nights and family-oriented activities. You want full moon parties and besotted nights? You’re out of luck. But if you’re looking for unparalleled scuba diving in the Similan Islands, you’ve hit the jackpot.

Our favourite place for dinner. Amazing welcome and wonderful food. Tended to be a bit hotter than other places but very tasty. Best meal we had was the blue crab, and the cocktails were great. First time we went, cocktails were 2 for 1 before 8pm. the second time we went we didn't get there until well after 8pm but they still gave us 2 for 1 so very good value. 2 courses with 2 cocktails for 2 for 900 baht.

Charming restaurant. We ate on the roof Terrace once and downstairs once. Although slightly cooler, downstairs had a much nicer ambience. Food was really good and cheaper than the restaurants in the row next to the beach towards the apsara hotel. Only one disappointing meal out of 8, and that was the when the meal is cooked on the table in a pot on a burner. It just didnt cook, and my son ended eating long after everyone finished. Other than that, everything delicious.

We read reviews on this place and were so keen to check it out, but apparently due to new government regulations, many of the shops and restaurants on the beach have been closed down. Not sure if My Friend has moved somewhere else, but we couldn't find it. VERY SAD!!

Reviewed By samzac2016 - West Sussex, United Kingdom

Given the reviews we were expecting something good here but, bit of a let down really. Most of the tables were "reserved" which is strange given the average quality of the food but in some cases people didnt show until about 9pm. We arrived at 730pm and felt like as we hadnt booked we were an inconvenience but for 1hr 30 mins we observed tables not being used as they had reserve notices. If they are going to adopt that policy then it should be reserved for exact times not just when you turn up. Other restaurants provided complimentary prawn crackers and fruit but we got nothing here and no real quality of service. The food was okay but not as good as the Bamboo and hence we never returned

Reviewed By Balthasar S - Stuttgart, Germany

Super nice place to rest and have some very tasty food and drinks. We tried Pam's special: mango daiquiri and it was really tasty and refreshing. The food is super tasty, you can add some spice if you want as it is served separately. The service is also perfect! We were even offered no-moscito spray to protect us from getting mosquito bites! Pam cares for details and as a guest we feel really welcomed! Thanks for the great hospitality!

We came here for lunch away from our hotel and the food was fair. Unfortunately, there were no high chairs, but the staff are nice, the proximity to x10 and the beach good and it was very reasonable. 3.5 would be a fairer reflection.
