“Nice food, nicer owners!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012 via mobile

Try the masaman curry here and you will not regret it!

The ambience is nice and they played nice music too. We enjoyed the selection of cocktails served and a long chit chat with the lovely owners.

I ordered chicken masaman curry and simple stir fried vege which is not in the menu so it will not overpower our curry and they did exactly that! Which is unexpected for us. they also do not put MSG which is a flavor enhancer normal cafes would put around Thailand and Malaysia.

I tried a drink called 'I don't know' which has Baileys in it and I loved it! Their Mai Tai is a must try too!

I can't wait to go back there if I ever return to krabi town which I would coz I love the place so much!

“A lovely place to have a drink and eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

The atmosphere is great, the furniture is made of exotic wood. The only place in Krabi where we felt comfy enough to spend long hours drinking delicious cocktails (in a pineapple!) and exquisite food. Try the Massaman curry : the best I had in Thailand.
The French owner is very enthusiastic and proud of the cook : his wife!

I definitely recommend this place which stands out in Krabi.

“A fun cafe to hang out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012 via mobile

We were at this cafe last week to have a couple drinks. We love the decorations and atmosphere of this place. We chatted with the owner Jariya about life in krabi and where to go around that area. She was super friendly and answered a lot of questions that we had. We would definitely recommend this place!

“Good Thai in atmospheric surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

The food here was excellent, particularly the fish with the spicy sweet and sour sauce. It was cozy to sit outdoor in a quiet part of the town
