This place you could just walk by if you didn't know it's one of the top restaurants in town! Very small and basic design, but amazing local owners and incredible food! We had a few dishes, but loved the prawns here, we had them a few different ways! And it's true, the Springs rolls are great! It's a busy spot,... More

Great place for yummy Thai food with helpful and friendly staff (who speaks English :) )! We asked the owner for recommendations of thai dishes and she explained us well what was typical for this region.

Khao Sok is definitely more renowned for its national park than its food but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meal at Pawns. The Penang curry had a very good flavour and the spring rolls were excellent (especially the homemade dipping sauce!). The pad si ew was okay but nothing special. Not the biggest serving sizes but...

This place is ranked #1 on TripAdvisor because lots of other smaller places aren't even listed. That's not to say Pawn's is not good. It is. It's decent. Solid but not spectacular, like most other places listed here. But for my money I'd go somewhere less "reputed" on the same strip like Lad Roi-Et, where they really go all out... More

After visiting Pawns for dinner on my first night in Khao Sok, I returned daily during my 4 night stay there. Usually I am one to try as many of the local establishments as possible, but after a sub par breakfast and lunch in nearby restaurants I decided to stick with Pawns. The curries are the best I have sampled... More

The food was good, but definitely not great. Maybe because just one cook for everyone. We got our dish one hour later.

We visited this restaurant whilst in Khao sok. There is a wide variety of food from Thai to western. It's good value and plenty to eat. I would definitely recommend this restaurant whilst visiting.

So great food. You have to wait, but the reason is that they make a great effort. We had dinner 2 times and everything was so tasty. We loved it. The just seat you where there is room, so you can sit with everyone

My partner and I had almost everything on the menu. We tried three other restaurants, some were good, but Pawn's was great!!! We just kept going back... we had the Papaya salad, Tofu Larb, Paenang, Red, Massaman curries, Phad Siew, Radna and Pineapple Fritters with honey and probably a few other things I can't remember now. Every time someone read... More
