Kukkak Bar and Grill at the Pullman Khao Lak – formerly the LeMeridien Khao Lak — Starting at the Pullman [ almost exact middle of the map above] the KukKak Bar and Grill is in good form and offers drinks and food at less than the usual Pullman fares. It is on the entrance road to the Pullman and part of their operations.
The Pullman also has a very nice seafront restaurant/bar [below] immediately south of the resort – between the resort and the RimLay [further below].
What, at one time, was called the “Tsunami Survivor’s” restaurant on the beach west of the LeMeridien resort, is now called RimLay Seafood [below and below left] and is usually closed in low season, but open during high season.RimLay Seafood near LeMeridien Khao Lak

As you walk out of the LeMeridien onto Pakweeb Beach and head west you will pass the RimLay Restaurant and quickly come to a small rocky outcropping at the Similana Resort. The Similana has an excellent restaurant set up on the bluff above the rocky area – great views and authentic Thai spicy food (be warned!).
Continue walking west past the Similana – you may need to walk up and through the Similana to get around the rocky area at high tide). About 150-200 meters after the Similana you will find the Ao Thong Beach Restaurants (two restaurants and a bar currently) with great food with local prices. (sometimes spelled Ow Thong)
The beach in the area is beautiful and this is a great place to pause for some refreshment. The two photos further below look in each direction from their location.
To the west is the Sarojin [below] and you can see the umbrellas outside their resort. To the east is the Similana and you can see a bit of the rocky area near that resort [below].
The Sarojin also has excellent, albeit pricey restaurants. The one located on the beach frontage – has more moderate prices and offers great views of the bay and sea.
Southwestern Cape Pakarang Area Restaurants
If you get out on the road that runs to the tip of the Cape, you will be heading towards the Palm Galleria – and there are two local restaurants in that immediate area. The Pakarang Bungalow resort has a restaurant and they are located 900 meters to the east of the Galleria – and there is a sea view restaurant about 100 meters to the west. We can guess that as the Takolaburi (sometimes spelled “Tacola”) and Apsaras Resorts get into full swing high season – even more small local restaurants will present themselves.
Bang Sak Beach Area Restaurants
In the area in front of the Haadson Resort is a long stretch of quiet beach road that is home to many small Thai restaurants. If you stay at the Haadson – you will be spoiled for choices [above and below].
