“Follow-up - even better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Second and third visit. The second was a dinner. Everything was even better than the first visit, in part due to the fact that they now make their own fries from actual potatoes. The mushroom soup was again delicious and the tuna was perfectly cooked. Extra points for when we were contemplating on the wine and the chef/owner actually recommended the cheaper one of the two since he thought it would be a better match - instead of trying to upsell. Integrity rules!

Third visit (does this count, I don't know) was when we got a picnic basket for the following day on our way to Phra Nang. Cold cuts, salad, olives, baguettes, cheesecake and a whole lot more, complete with actual plates and glasses and cutlery. The jealous looks alone from our fellow beach goers, nibbling their chips, were worth it.

If you are interested in food at all (of course you are, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this in the first place), your visit to Ao Nang is not complete without Jenna's.

“Beautiful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Lovely restaurant with fantastic service and fantastic food! A bit pricier than some of the other nearby restaurants but well worth the spend! The owner was really friendly and seemed eager to please. You must visit this place at least once whilst in Ao Nang!

“Nice dinner place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Food quality is good although slightly more expensive then the surrounding restaurants (but is worth the price especially if you're getting the set menu). Nice ambience to dine either indoor and outdoor with great service which is efficient.

“Best meal in Thailand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

This place is amazing. I cannot even describe how excellent everything was, but here it goes!

Wine list was small, but an excellent selection, much better than some of the wine lists in Singapore. Salads were the freshest lettuce I've had since living in SEAsia. Owner told us he buys them from a local grower in Krabi. It was like eating salad right off of the farm. I had a crab pasta with loads of crab and fresh made pasta sauce. They did not drown the pasta in sauce, nor was it light, it was a perfect mixture...and the crab ooh the crab! Husband had a tenderloin steak with onion rings and home made fries. Steak had the best char taste and the bernaise sauce was creamy goodness! Onion rings were lightly fried and onion was that sweet crunch. Not the over fried or over soggy you can get other places. Now the best was the French fries!!! Crispy on the outside and soft smooth in the middle.

This place was so good, I would fly to Krabi just to eat here. It's not going to be a $4 meal but it's not an expensive one either, I've spent twice as much in Singapore for half the quality of a meal.

Do not miss this place!

Dear Southernqt72,

Thank you for writing such a long detailed review.

Fantastic to hear at your last night dinner in Thailand met your high expectations. Hopefully you get the change to come back soon..... Krabi is only 1.5h flight away.

Thanks again
