Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

After reading the reviews, we decided to see for ourselves, and we were far from disappointed. The food was exceptionally fresh, and the prices were surprisingly low. Plus, they serve cold beer, and the staff is incredibly friendly. Definitely worth checking out!

The food here is very good. I got the Thai omelette and asked to add shrimp and basil. It was perfect. Very affordable and great service. Closes early.

Best food I’ve had in Thailand. The green curry and the red curry were both amazing. Great service and big portion sizes for a very good price. The owners are really nice, and gave me recommendations for things to do in Pai.

Excellent meal at Charlie & Lek’s! A very delicious 2 starters, 2 mains and a beer for £8.50. I just discovered Khao Soi and these guys delivered on it! Will definitely go back.

Very yummy. Loads of options on the menu. Lots of vegetarian options too (which i struggled to find in some other places) You must try the khao soi! Maybe the best weve had 😍

Nice Thai place in Pai. Could get a tofu Khao Soi for 60 THB. Yummy, no criticisms. Will be back for another Khao soy before I leave the north!

We both had chicken Khao soi and we both agreed it's some of the best food we've had in our trip! It was great! Coupled with our drinks we ate for under £5. How can it be anything but 5 stars.

All the common local thai dishes are available. Besides that, there are nice juices, smoothies, etc. the food is good, size of the dishes is good. The restaurant itself is very simple, nothing fancy, fits the Pai scenery perfectly.

Had the most amazing pumpkin curry with tempeh! Beautifully presented and with so much flavour, perfectly spicy for someone not so used to spicy food. Staff was also very friendly and nice! Unfortunately my takeaway pad kra pao was very tasteless and disappointing..
