Saw all the great trip advisor reviews and came here as it was just around the corner from our guesthouse. The food was lovely, I had a curry and my boyfriend had a rice dish - both delicious. The family who run the restaurant are lovely and service great. We didn't have cocktails but they looked cheap with a good... More

Was greeted by Giancarlo and had a great chat with this engaging gent. I ordered the glass noodle pork salad and Penang pork curry. I have been in Asia for two months now and this was the absolute best meal I have had up to this point. Deeee-Lish!!! Excellent value for the quality of the meal was an added bonus... More

I've visited this place a few times now and it was always excellent. It's a family owned and runned business. The service is quick friendly and the kids who help have always a smile on their face. The food itself is really tasty, well seasoned and a decent portion size. You also should try the cocktails made by the husband... More

We came here and the restaurant had a small wait (5 min). The service is very good, the ambiance is nice and the food was good (not great). I had a burger and my wife had a pasta. It was not fantastic as the previous reviews said, but it was good enough for us to address our homesickness given that... More

This place is amazing.. there was absolutely nothing to complain!! The food was soooo delicious, that we couldn't believe it! We had the best coconut soup since we're in Thailand! You're getting even the whole mussels with your seafood.. The stuff was so friendly, the prices are more than fair! So sad we found this place on our last night!... More

Had dinner with a few friends last night. We had an exceptional meal and enjoyed the atmosphere thoroughly. I had the spaghetti with spinach and parmesan, it was absolutely delicious. The restaurant was very close to our hostel, Pak Up Hostel, which was made for a very short walk. I would definitely recommend for a date night the atmosphere was... More

My boyfriend and I found this place just walking around. It looked clean and well organised: after that first time we went there almost every evening in our long stay in Krabi town. Food is delicious, we loved everything we tried. Their Massaman is absolutely the best one we have ever had in many years coming to Thailand and also... More

Price is great. Food is wonderful. Place is small but cosy. It is a family run business, owner and his wife(both speak english well) with kids cook and serve food themselves. Top quality place. Must visit in Crabi town.

My husband and I had dinner here. Beautiful restaurant with good ambiance. Friendly and attentive staff and owner. My husband didn't feel like having a curry and chose the beef burger- not something you would expect to be good in a restaurant with so many delicious Thai food offerings- but it was really good. I love curries and had the... More
