“Lovely restaurant but light on spice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We had a good dinner here last night. Luckily I had read here on Tripadvisor that the map reference is incorrect and followed the advice that Bussaba is next door to Carnivore Restaurant otherwise we would never have found it. Soi Klonghang goes off the main street to the right (if coming from the beach) just before the police station. Keep walking further than you expect and you will eventually come to it on the left.

The atmosphere is cosy and the service friendly. The quality of the ingredients was very high. The food itself was tasty but rather westernized. The chicken cakes were especially good as was the mussaman curry with roti. A little light on spice for our taste but that said I would recommend this restaurant to those who would like a gentle introduction to Thai food.

Highly recommended.

“Decent food, but nothing special, hidden up a kill next to Carnivore Steak House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Originally wanting to go to Carnivore, but they were closed we settled on this place, we were the only customers there. The décor is nice, and the staff is helpful, one of the ladies who works there has impeccable English! We asked her a few questions and it was very easy for her to answer, I cannot remember her name.
The food was good, but nothing special, just normal, as I cannot remember what we ate, so it probably wasn't out of this world, but I do remember it was good. But I will say the desserts were not very good, no creativity, a piece of bread with chocolate store bought syrup poured over it. Boring and not interesting at all, perhaps this is the common dessert in Thailand, but I do not recall that it is.

If we were in Krabi again, we may stop by for a quick bite, but hard to say, there are so many others places to go in Ao Nang Beach.

“Delicious Thai Food and Awesome atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Just spent my 4-day-trip in Krabi last weekend and had our first proper meal at Bussaba Thai restaurant. It took sometime for the hotel-transfer's driver to find this restaurant as it's not located at the main street but it's not that far anyway. We were surprised by the really nice atmosphere of this restaurant. We ordered Tom Yam, Green Curry vegetables, chicken with basil leaves and fried rice. All tasted delicious. Portion wise were quite small for us (Asians) and price is reasonable. Staffs are friendly and helpful.Would highly recommend this restaurant to others.

“Worth the walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

After reading some of the prizing reviews, we decided to head out and have dinner here. Take note that the listed address is off by a mile! We had to ask and look hard. Turns out it's down Khlong Hang road. Tuc tuc will find it, but on foot is not nice. Needs to be corrected! Twice the distance from our Vogue resort. Anyway, the food and excellent service made up for it. Great curry and mixed vegetables. Yummy!
