“Good price amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

If your in krabi town eat here menu has all thai and chinese dishes food is always fresh and tasty and prices are some of best in thailand. Drink main and rice 130 baht so cheap. Cant emphasise how clean it is plus all local thai families who have money eat here so speaks for itself.

“Superb, great tasting dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

We really enjoyed our food here. They have a good selection of Thai dishes and all are pretty cheap considering the quality of the food. Would highly recommend you eat here even if you have a tight budget.

“Good food, average staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Hesitating between 3 and 4 stars here. Most of the food was definitely good, and relatively cheap.

Ambiance/setting in the restaurant was not really great.

Staff could not understand much of what we said, nor explain a lot about the menu, though they tried.

Still, food was good, there was a lot of choice, and the staff were friendly.

“Cheap does not mean poor quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

A Krabi local introduced me to Kotung restaurant located opposite the food market adjacent to the river.

I was looking for a good Massaman curry (especially now The Massaman restaurant has closed in Ao Nang) and the Massaman Gai (chicken) at Kotung was superb!

I highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner. It is very cheap especially compared to the better restaurants in Krabi Town (like Bai Tooey and Ruen Tip) but serves excellent food.

Can get quite busy and the restaurant is small so be prepared to wait at certain times.

“great seafood, packed w/ locals, many options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were so happy we ate here. The fish was fresh, well cooked and not oily. We had a seafood sour salad that I didn't see anywhere else in Thailand and it was amazing. We also liked the baked fish (which came in a broth surprisingly but was awesome), and clam shells in spicy sauce (forgetting the exact name now). It was well worth the money, which was more than we normally spent on dinner, living on the cheaper student budget.
