“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

The owner (Tua) is an amazing hostess. She made our family feel really welcome, She is good at languages as I saw her easily switching between the various languages of her guests. What is especial is her cooking. She spends time each year in France and so understands the European palate. Her interpretation of Traditional Thai Food is exceptional.

If you are within 80 kms of Krabi, check out her restaurant. I assure you, you will leave with very pleasant memories.

In this place you get really good food, good service and nice poeple. The owner is a good cook and takes time to talk with the guests. If you are in Krabi town, try this place.

“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!
