Khao Lak Restaurants & Dining

What to Eat and Where to Dine in Khao Lak

The Khao Lak restaurants and dining scene will surely meet (and in some cases, exceed) your expectations. While not a gourmet destination, Khao Lak delivers the goods when it comes to family-style dining out. The area consisting of Khao Lak Beach, Bang Niang and La On has a broad range of cuisine on offer, including Indian, Scandinavian, Italian, German, British and of course Thai, while restaurants vary from hole-in-the-wall roadside eateries to plush hotel food outlets, with a lot in between.

As in most tourist destinations around southern Thailand, fresh seafood is king here. Surrounded by fishing piers – Tap Lamu, Baan Nam Kem, and more – you can expect to sample a great choice of delicious crab, lobster, prawn, and fish at most restaurants in Khao Lak.

Ficus Restaurant

If anyone could explain just exactly what it is that makes a successful restaurant they’d be able to retire a very rich person after writing a book about the magical ingredients.

Muan Lai - Issarn Restaurant

Straddling a hillside in between Khao Lak Beach and La On is a bright yellow restaurant with superb views north over several beaches. This is Muan Lai –specialising in northeastern Thai cuisine. Breezy and colourful, Muan Lai is instantly noticeable (which is a good thing as it has no English-language sign outside) and is a good choice of venue for sundowners or an early dinner – if not lunch. It’s never crowded so service is more or less instantaneous and the menu consists mainly of grilled meats, potent sauces and sticky (glutinous) rice. If you’ve ever wondered what Khao Lak’s coastline looks like at a glance Muan Lai is the place to take it all in.

  • Opening Hours: 08:00 – 22:00
  • Location: Highway 4 in between Khao Lak Beach and La On Village
  • Cuisine: Barbecue

Whether you stay here, or just come to spend the day, this is a cosy spot with excellent service. The food here features a good choice of classic Thai specialities and a few Western dishes. Rates are reasonable and in line with most local beachside restaurants in the area.
