From the outside, pawns restaurant may not seem like much, but do not be fooled. This is by far some of the best Thai food I have experience on my trip. Their green curry and Thai eggplant was incredible and definitely worth a try. A simple layout, super friendly staff, pawns is a must when in Khao Sok.

It was just the best curry I had in Thailand. We came here every day. Food is excellent and it's really cheap.

This was simply amazing, especially the massaman and very reasonably pricdd too. We went back every night we were in khao sok. I still have dreams about the massaman curry- that's how good it was!

Delicious food haven in the jungle. We got there at opening and had the green papaya salad which was a perfect medium heat,green curry and banana blossom curry-both were really delicious to the point of scraping the bowl to savor the last bits.

By the first look of it, we wouldn't have chosen Pawns, since we do not like to eat Western Food when we are in Thailand. But we were absolutely blown away by the taste and quality of the Thai dishes they offer. In all of Thailand I have never eaten a green Curry as good as this one. My husband... More

Went for dinner here a couple of days ago and it was really good! Quite a large menu, so enough choice next to the well known pad thai. Friendly staff, didn't mind at all we stayed a bit longer for drinks

We were 4 nights in Kao Sok and if we weren't sick the last night (not of pawns food) we would have had dinner here 4 nights in a row. Simple, fresh and ran by two old ladies who just know how to cook. To pay takes you more time because they are just to busy cooking. We've had almost... More

Had a nice coconut curry in this restaurant. Good service! The place is not very cosy. I missed some music or nice lights. Value for price is very good :) I would go back.
