Great, authentic food! Not far away by taxi. Friendly stuff! I'm. Not sure about the name, but it was something in menu, what offers to take 5 dishes from North Thailand? It was delicious!More

Every dietary need met with a smile at this amazing restaurant. So far we have eaten here twice and plan to go again for my husbands birthday. The food is so so good. Also love that you can eat here sat in the traditional position...( not chairs). My personal fav is the pomelo salad 😋but my daughter who can eat gluten loved the spring rolls. Also the squid with basil was fabulous. To be honest everything this place serves is superb. Great value for money in my opinion.More

A 1000 reviews!! I could attempt 1000 just by myself and still probably not convey how wonderful this restaurant is. The food is outstanding. We have been coming to Khao Lak since 2009 and always eat here. Nothing comes close in Khao Lak. We visited...3 times on our most recent trip and sampled amongst other dishes Fiery Fish, Seafood Hot Plate, Dragon Balls, Khao Soi (better than any version we had in the north and on par with the famous Dara Dalay in BKK) Best Massaman anywhere especially when phet pheted up a scale!! How do they get their fried rice dishes so perfect? Seafood cooked to perfection. The owner is a ‘real’ chef and the food presentation is to the highest standard. Top notch cocktails and delicious fruit shakes. All at a very reasonable price. Thai food not half as good in the UK would cost 3 times as much. Now KL has many dining options. The busiest currently seems to be the North European dominated Pak Weep beach scene and the Bang Niang night market. The former dishes up some good standard tourist Thai – the latter gave me a touch of the trots. Why eat at the market when you can cross the road and take the short walk down here? With all the road development apparently going on in KL, I fear for some of the small family run businesses like HT, Nothing ever stays the same but it would be awful if KL lost this gem. Do yourself a favour and get some real full flavoured Thai cuisine while you can. Thanks to all at Hilltribes. Joanne and DaveMore

We walked to dinner one night at the Hill Tribe Restaurant. WHat an excelletn choice. ALl four of us thought this was the best meal we had in Khao Lak. I had a duck dish at "medium" heat and it was plenty spicey without being...overbearing. We sat at one of the raised tables, leanign back on teh cushions with a fan. The ambiance was wonderful, service fast and the food delicisious.More

We were here in 2013 and I’ve never forgotten it. It was the best meal I had in Khao Lak by a long way, and I’ve carried their card in my wallet ever since as a memento. And finally we had the opportunity to visit...again during our 3 week tour of Thailand and Laos. And once again the food was amazing. Their spicy banana flower salad was the best dish of our holiday - so much freshness, so much flavour! This place is not much to look at from the outside, and not particularly close to any hotels so can’t rely really on passing trade - they make a living from the great quality of their cooking. Worth a taxi ride from anywhere in Khao Lak, and they’ll call a taxi home for you. Go there, you won’t be disappointed!More

This is definitely a family operated restaurant as children were serving our table. Food was okay, not fantastic. We were asked how spicy for our mains but ordered mixed veggies and they were way too spicy. Fairly good prices and food came out quickly in...spite of two very large groups already there.More
