Great eating in Khao Sok National Park

Posted by jodymm on 10/6/2014 at 01:11

We arrived in Khao Sok National Park for a 5 day stay. I had read good eating reviews on Pawns Restaurant so was looking forward to trying it. However, Pawns was closed and my disappointment was great, once I got over it, we wandered down the road and found an open air cafe with lots of garden pots outfront with, lemongrass, different mints, chilli, eggplants of different shapes sizes and colours; Also a sign that promised Thai curries freshly made pastes, and a free homemade dessert! We decided this was the place. We were warmly welcomed into the outside balcony and ordered a fresh fruit shake and 3 dishes.OMG I have never tasted food this good (and I'm a serious foodie). We went to JASMINE GARDEN for dinner the next four nights of our stay, amazing food and definitely a must try while staying in Khao Sok National Park. My rating 15/10 (seriously),the owner, Spiderwoman is great to chat with and you can watch her cooking behind the counter. She also runs cooking classes to share her amazing recipes. We went the Herbies for lunch most which I would give a 5/10.

We stayed in Las Orquideas resort which was amazing, big tropical garden with a balcony that hang in the middle of the tree tops. Lovely breakfasts and hosts that were really present and helped with everything we needed. It is on the main road not far from the park entrance. If you are looking for something more jungle like and very private, we found Our Jungle House (on a walk one day) that is a bit cheaper and in an amazing location. We have friends who stayed there and they loved it. Safe Travel
