This place is good but could be so much better as it is very much watered down thai food aimed at tourists presumably lacking the tastebuds to go for authentic thai cuisine . Setting is lovely, we had a decentish crab curry but had much better in Bangkok. Not really the restaurant's fault I suppose as it has to cater... More

We had dinner at Krua and it was absolutely delicious. The staff were very friendly and we loved the outdoor dining experience. We do recommend however going before 7pm as it gets very busy and the food takes a lot longer to be served

This is a great place for dinner on the beach. Sit outside with your feet in the sand while watching the chinese lanterns take flight. The steamed fish is really delicious. Service was average, but quite acceptable for a lazy evening. The restaurant itself is a great example of Thai architectural style. I would definately return if I find myself... More

The place was mostly empty and they still had to check if they could squeeze us in. The waiter was mostly indifferent bordering onto rude, which is a new experience for me in Thailand. Mate, you are the first. The food, bbq'd fish was small over cooked and badly over priced. We went to eat somewhere else later to fill... More

Girlfriend and I visited this place because it was raining and many food places were not opened yet for lunch but my oh my we had a wonderful experience. We had tamarind prawn and green curry. Both food were good but the tamarind prawn dish is one of the best that we've ever had. The sea view was okay but... More

We looked everywhere for the best Thai food. Now, there are some excellent places, but this one takes the top. We ate on the beach at night; what a wonderful experience with great service.

We had the special menu, which was delicious and not too pricey. Service was a bit slow and on another night we went there, the service was quite poor.

A nice restaurant nestled in the palms on Bo Phut beach. Options of tables on the beach, terrace, and inside. Feral dogs underfoot were a little disconcerting. Service was shocking. They appear understaffed but the restaurant was only a third full. We had to ask for drinks, had to ask to follow up meals. Food was ok but very expensive.... More
