Awesome service, average food. But you would expect that from most resort away from mainland. Price was reasonable.

Really great food. The soup was the best I've had. Lovely staff. Great atmosphere. I was eating by myself and was made to feel very welcome.

if you stay at the centara grand beach resort and villas in krabi you definitely have to eat at the suan bua thai restaurant. the food is of high quality and authentically cooked. and the tom kha was on of the best i ever had in thailand. but not only the food was good, the service is friendly and competent. over all we had a very nice dinner experience in a wonderful environment.

the only complaint i have is that the wine list could be a bit better.... but thats a minor issue.

and for those who don‘t stay at the hotel make a reservation and come by boat to the centara or go the adventurous way via the „monkey trail“. locals will explain you how to get there.

Excellent food. I had vegetarian spring rolls and red curry. They adapted to the meal to my requirements (vegan) and prepared something first class. The service was second to none. I was looked after by Zackie who was very attentive, topped up my glass and checked that the food was to my liking (very much so). He was all smiles and had the best attitude, made me feel very welcome. And the restaurant itself is absolutely beautiful, nestled close to beautiful gardens and within eye and earshot of the beach. Can’t fault it.

This restaurant is part of the Centaro Grand Resort. If you don't feel like the trek to get off this site it is one of a few choices of restaurants within the resort. It is expensive and portion sizes are not generous. Much better and cheaper options are available if you have the energy to go up and over the Monkey Trail into Ao Nang
