“Nice food, average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

A taxi guide suggested this place and was very busy with locals when we got there. We had to wait for 10 mins for tables, despite there was a section of the restaurant that were not occupied, but they decided not to put any patrons there at all (not sure why, we asked, in english, but the waiter can't explain why)

The food is good, not great, just good. But one of our order didn't come out till after all the other food we ordered were eaten. When we checked with a waiter, he just said, too many people ordered so have to wait.
After another 10 mins, we checked with the original lady that took our order and she promptly went to the kitchen and came out to tell us that the squid egg we ordered has ran out... shame...

price is reasonable for local standard, cheap for singapore singapore price (where I currently live)

No highchair for babies/kids.

Will I come back if I return to Krabi... I'll try different seafood restaurant for comparison...

“Terrible Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Service are horrible. The fried rice is tasteless. We had been waited for long time for food to be served. The worst part is those tables come after us had finised theirs and we still not start eating. food are dirty, not clean. Found hair on top of steam fish and lizard's "S" in the rice

“Total Disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We visited this restaurant last year and revisited it during our second trip to Krabi. And I must say, it is a total disappointment.

Our recent visits has led us to the conclusion that we will not return to this restaurant anymore.

1. Terrible service : We were there during the dinner hours. We stood there and looking for someone to assist us. But the staff were either busy acting busy; or pointing us to another direction to queue. When we were queuing, we realised that some of the customers who came later than us got a seat first!! What an indifference service attitude!

2. Deterioration in food quality : We liked the food last visit. Not this round. Why? We ordered squid in lime juice which supposed to be lit with a burner. The food served without the burner, and the squid is not even half cooked. Our BBQ tiger prawns and green curry beef are overcooked. The asparagus tasted older than me. Their juices are cordial drinks. It was a disastrous dinner.

3. Unhygienic : We noticed that there were a lot of tourist buses during our visit. And it was very dusty. What was really disgusting was - we saw many of the staff clean the table with the used tissue from the previous diners. YUCK!

Our advise - Stay away unless you don't have a choice!

“didnt rate it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

Poor service. Ordered mussels..an hour passed until we were told mussels werent on the menu that day. Ordered bbq fish which staff advised would take an hour. By this point everything was closing. Bad meal in general, would not return.
Went after to our favourire bar down the same road, hippies bar, and orderes fresher, tastier food with better service.
