Fried shrimp balls, whiting and seafood tomyum was great. Had a local vegetable which I think is tapioca leaves stir fried with eggs was great too

This place is simply amazing. The food is outstanding – by far the best food in the area. We ordered the penang, green chicken curry and cashew chicken, along with some vegetables (kang kong and kai lan) – all were exceptional. The bamboo hut is also beautiful and a really romantic setting. It was perfect! It's moved so it's a... More

Can't find it. Ask locals and the Resto change its name to Anchalie. The exterior looks the same but haven't got a chance to try their food.

We used to eat at this restaurant when they were actually located in Krabi. Thanks to this website we found the new location with no problem. The food was as remembered (we hadn't been to Krabi for several years). The previous night we ate at the old location, while the food was good it wasn't Ruen Mai. They told us... More

This hidden gem has apparently been around for a long time, but it was previously located in Krabi Town until a year (?) ago. I'm glad they moved as the setting is truly special. Go at night where the lovely 'mood lighting' adds to the ambience of the place. The food is fabulous- it's not your usual run-of-the-mill Thai food.... More

Excellent food in a wonderfully atmospheric setting. The bamboo pavilion is a great piece of architecture and building construction. Nice change from the bustle or Ao Nang beach.

This restaurant is worth making the effort to get there. We got a taxi to and from from Au Nang and we not disappointed. The food and service was impeccable. It was set in tranquil gardens under a woven canopy. Amazing Thai food, but Thai spicy also!

'Dining at Ruen Mai' was in our 'Must Do' list when we recently visited Krabi. But I must admit that it wasn't easy to locate the place as it is off the main road. If you intend to dine at a place for than just its food, Ruen Mai is the place for you. I admire the restaurant for its... More
