Original, authentic Thai food - possibility to chose your own level of "spiciness" so not too spicy for the average European; good sign is that Thais come here to eat, too. underlines the authenticity of the place; very friendly staff and cozy atmosphere with a lot of Bamboo interior design / furniture. The food was delicious too - highly recommended... More

We saw this place on the way to the market and decided to try it out and we were glad we did. It wasn’t the best food we had in Khao Lak but that’s because we were being spoiled with our Khao Lak experience. The service was especially memorable though as they were just eager to please. I would come... More

Great flavours in the northern Thai food. Particularly enjoyed the fried fish fillet in any way it was cooked. The prawns tempur and chicken satay, together with all the curries were excellent.

Came here a year ago and now back again - same excellent food even though it has moved to smaller premises. If you want really good Thai food and charming service this is one of the best!

Lovely Thai food, seems authentic Thai style as far as I can judge. Nice helpful staff. Clean. Spicy if you want it. Located near the Bang Niang market, down a side road - seemed farther from the main road than the map told us. We will be back to try the hot pot which looks good.

Enjoyed every meal there! Khao Niau what means sticky rice is an awesome restaurant located at the Bang Niang area. The owner is very friendly and will try to help you to find the perfect meal for you. I really recommend the 'Laab' there, not sure if the word is correct. Give it a try, it is worth to go... More
