Lunch at The Great Hornbill Grill Restaurant in Khao Yai
Aug'2013 OK Technically the restaurant is in Pak Chong but the location is know to all as "Khao Yai", Thailands biggest National Park. The location is a bit of the main-road, about 15 km from highway 2 at Muak Lek. But easy to find because of the (very clever design in) signs along the road. So I had lunch here last week and I was very pleasantly surprised. They have both indoor and outdoor seating in a stunning locations between the vine-yard of "PB Valley Khao Yao Winery". The staff was friendly although probably a bit tired after a long and busy weekend. I had 2 starters and dessert and had 1 drink (fresh grape juice) with a total price of about 650 Thai baht.
Not cheap but worth every satang, so yes the food was really good. As said the restaurant is part of a vine-yard & winery so of course there is also a wine-shop. And they have 3 times a day a tour at the winery with wine tasting (at 10:30, 13:30 and 15:30). As I did not have time for the tour I am sure I will come back for a lunch & tour! Highly recommended!
