This was our second trip to the Khao Lak area over recent years and we have eaten at many Thai restaurants. Hill Tribe is by far the most authentic and delicious food we have ever tasted. The menu is extensive and so different from the mainstream places in town. We were adventurous and tried Banaba flower salad, various seafood dishes,... More

Dear Mimi G, what a wonderful review, and so many compliments. Thank you. We are especially grateful for the statement, which exactly depicts what we are trying to offer our customers: we do not try to be anything but authentic and we are not pretentious. So happy to hear that you loved the food - the chef loves to talk... More

This is a restaurant especialized in north thailandic food and serves great food. At the end of our dinner the chef came to us to ask how was our food. The place is also very cozy and the service very good.

This restaurant is far and away the best I have ever been to in Thailand. Run by a tgentleman called San the food is second to none and the prices offer superb value for money. Every dish is ckked to order by San and his kitchen staff and the serving staff are excellent

We chose Hill Tribe because not only was it highly rated but loved some of the reviews replies on trip advisor. We shared the assorted starter dish and had a main course each plus a drink and it was less than £20. Would definitely go here again

Hello and thank you for your positive review and so many compliments. Flattered to hear that you enjoyed reading my replies to some of the reviews :).

Dear AlexMagnifico, what a nice review - thank you so much. It is our strict policy to offer only genuine Thai food, the way it is cooked and eaten and served in Thailand and not to adapt the dishes to the>tourist taste More

This is a well run family restaurant with great food at reasonable prices. The kids even help out with serving so make sure you tip them too. They will even sort your taxi ride home for you.

Tasty flavours but we are in thailand. Northern food upon the menu. It was good but not famous. The service is kind but approximative. Good choice but what the 3d restaurant local, nobody knows and certainly not me

My wife and I have spent our 3rd Holiday in Khao Lak and we always seem to spend most of our evenings dining out at the Hill Tribe restaurant. They are extremely friendly and cater for small and large groups. Top restaurant with a strong recommendation. Cheers, Gordon & Frankie.

Ok food, nothing to write home about. Took hours to get drinks. Spicy food came before drinks served. No request to the barely English speaking staff were honored by anything else than dismissive remarks. A clear case of a "dont go there" place.

Dear Dirk A, for the last 4 or 5 years we have regularly had ONE customer per season with a review similar to yours. I took the liberty and skimmed through your other 4 (sic!) reviews, which were written in a completely different style - long, polite though some of them critical. Accidental or on purpose? I cannot answer this... More

After our seventh visit we were surprised by the great food at hill tribes. Thai food in general is great, but after eating here me and my husband have found our very favorite thai restaurant.

Description
Hill Tribe Restaurant was opened in 2008. Its chef and owner comes from the area of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand and therefore Hill Tribe Restaurant does not only offer excellent and genuine Thai food but it also introduces its guests to a traditional and unique North Thai dining experience.
Families with children are welcome - we have special dishes for kids in our menu.

Reservations for Khan Tok (north Thai dinner) recommended.
