We were staying at kantary beach hotel....just a little walk down the fantastic beach passing another couple of bars but we knew where we wanted to go and boy we weren't disappointed. We went twice during our stay and both times were excellent. Staff more than friendly and polite. Food scrummy. View magnificent, sea breeze, drink, good good, candles what... More

We stayed in a hotel down the beach and ate here twice in the evening. The food is good, simple and cheap and you are right on the most lovely beach. The staff are typically friendly and gentle and serve excellent mojitos! If you want to feel properly on holiday with your feet in the sand under the beach tables... More

Sat at simple tables under shady covers on the sand so you can hear the sea. Food is good and all fresh. We found their Thai red and green soups to be the best locally.

Best thing is location. The food is much like anywhere else, except the Sate Chicken, which was awful. The chicken was obviously bought in as reconstituted chicken. I expect real chicken, but got dry rubbish. With sate sauce I suspect out of a jar, the whole thing was poor. Curry and Pad Thai were fine

We ate here most nights during our recent stay in Khao Lak. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the service is good, all of the food is freshly cooked to order and the menu choices and prices are great. You can get a super meal for two with drinks for £20-£25. You need to check the tides if you... More

There are huge numbers of reasonably priced beach restaurants in Thailand and this is another one. It is not Michelin star stuff, but is good wholesome and fresh food, like most. Staff speak excellent English (and probably German) are friendly and attentive. The menu is kinda the same as most, and with its location the fish is fresh, tasty and... More

Really can't understand how this place is receiving 4 & 5 star reviews - it is by the far the worst place we have eaten at while on holiday in Thailand. The only thing going for it is its location, right on the beach. The service was poor (none of the infectious Thai smiles on offer here) and the food... More

If you are staying at Kantary Beach Hotel, this beach restaurant is a 5-minute walk along the sand. Tables are situated under Casuarina trees, some of them under their own thatch-roofed shelters - handy for when it rains! The menu is homestyle Thai and surprisingly extensive. Our favourite dishes were those featuring the giant local prawns, one of the plusses... More
