The food was good and well presented - service was also good. We sat outside overlooking the beach under the palms.

Really nice and tasty thai food. The premises are amazing: inside the building, in the terrace and at the tables at the beach. we went at night and it had a really romantic atmosphere. the food was amazing: the soup tom yam gai ( it was called something like that) was superb. the location is also very convenient.

Krua holds no surprises, good or bad. The food is typically Thai & the service delivered in an efficient professional manner. Its probably very much like your favourite Thai restaurant back home & that's not a bad thing. Want good Thai cuisine reasonably priced, try Krua.

As we were with a large group (9) , it is always difficult to arrange a large table without a booking. Butno issue, a gorgeous setting on the deck under a big tree with fairy lights and fans! The food was truly delicious! We always judge a good restaurant on their Pad Thai, and we were not dissappointed! Lots of... More

Too expensive, food is medium. Appetizers were fatty deep fried, grilled seafood was not special. Worst of all was the complete lack of good service, very un-Thai - they couldn't handle it at all: at some point they were actually running and I felt pity for them. Avoid.

The food was good, not great. Very oily starters, but tasty mains. The service was really slow, but by no fault of the waitresses. This was the first time I have literally seen waitresses jogging up and down the restaurant. They were clearly under staffed.

We went here 2 nights in a row, and if we were in Samui longer, we'd probably have gone more. The food is amazing, and so is the service! It's a beautiful location on the beach. I'd definitely recommend the panaeng or massaman curry, and the spring rolls. Amazing!!

We went there based on a "foodie" write up in a free magazine. Sat down on the beach - the food some of the best we had in Thailand, the service just lovely - huge smiles and nothing too much trouble. We had such a great time, we went back a second time! Seafood grill contained two jumbo tiger prawns,... More
