Fabulous food. Service on the slow side.

We ate here a couple of times during our recent visit to Bophut. The Thai food is exceptionally good, though it's definitely in the higher price range for the village. We were disappointed with the very slow service the first time we ate there though. Generally we like to relax and enjoy things on... read more

Lovely initial impression, with a very appealing well presented restaurant and staff. Despite the restaurant being only half full the service was incredibly slow. It was our first night of a two week holiday so we persevered and remained patient! The drinks eventually arrived, the starters were fine and arrived after 45 minutes. When our main course still hadn't been... More

over priced tourist trap, with such an abundance of good fresh product at low prices in Thailand the quality of food here was extremely disappointing. Tom yum soup starter had 3 small prawns and about 16 mushrooms taste was otherwise ok... The basil chicken main was overly salty and tasted very strongly of MSG, I couldn't finish it and it... More

We had a nice dinner here. Granted, it's in a super touristy spot and if you show up without reserving, you'll never get a terrace or beach table. Seafood was delicious (we had the daily tiger shrimp, expensive but worth it), the prawn soup was decent but the whitefish with lime and chili pretty average. Service is painfully slow. It's...

Very good local Thai food. Liked the pepper beef stew especially. A little expensive considering the low prices in Thailand but still very nice and great atmosphere sitting on the beach.

A bit disapointing compare to the review we found on Trip. Good food but mainly a great location to have dinner on the beach

Read about Krau Bophut prior to my trip last week. Ever since then, Krau has been on my list of visits. One of the nights, we took a scooter and rode out to fishermen's village and chanced upon Krau. It was that easy to spot, right smack at the entrance of The Wharf. The tables get filled quick right after... More

In brief the restaurant was very beautiful, the food was very tasty and the staff were friendly. Service was just right and my wife and I enjoyed our evening. 3 cokes, mineral water, Paneang Chicken and Garlic & Pepper Chicken (Rice included for two) was 882THB. Thanks Krua Bophut
