Khao Lak Restaurants
Bang Niang Area
You will never starve in Khao Lak. The variety of food available will keep you happily gaining weight during the full span of your visit, and the full span of your elastic-waisted shorts. As with all things in Thailand – things change. Restaurants move on or change their names. Different people cook and food gets even better or becomes not quite as good as it was. Be flexible and use these recommendations just for ideas and go and discover on your own, the very best restaurant – then let us know!
