Here they have... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. They have a great variety of options and are slightly different from other Thai options in the area which made it more exciting. Some good vegetarian options too! Also when they say spicy they mean spicy! I had found in most restaurants in Thailand the 'spicy' food was mild but here it was killer!... More

We combined a meal here with a visit To Moo Moos Cabaret show and had a really nice meal. We wanted spicy and that is what we got. It is definitely worth the walk as it is just out of town. The chef is happy to come out and talk about his food.

This was our second trip to the Khao Lak area over recent years and we have eaten at many Thai restaurants. Hill Tribe is by far the most authentic and delicious food we have ever tasted. The menu is extensive and so different from the mainstream places in town. We were adventurous and tried Banaba flower salad, various seafood dishes,... More

This is a restaurant especialized in north thailandic food and serves great food. At the end of our dinner the chef came to us to ask how was our food. The place is also very cozy and the service very good.

Description
Hill Tribe Restaurant was opened in 2008. Its chef and owner comes from the area of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand and therefore Hill Tribe Restaurant does not only offer excellent and genuine Thai food but it also introduces its guests to a traditional and unique North Thai dining experience.
Families with children are welcome - we have special dishes for kids in our menu.

Reservations for Khan Tok (north Thai dinner) recommended.
