“Not what it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We visited in August 2011 and again this January 2014 and the quality is not what it was. Not sure if they had a heavy season but place seemed tired and washed out. Only a hand full of tables were available and the others permanently packed away.

“Very nice staff and tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to go to the Ninja Crepes Restaurant. We came there on the early evening, so there wasn't a cue outside (actually, as we were about to leave at 7 pm there was already a cue).

We were suprised by the good english of the staff and felt immediatly welcome. Although the restaurants interior is very basic and can bee indeed described as looking like a "garage", we felt comfortable.
The food itself was very good, we just ordered the Thai dishes, which we got spicy as we wanted it! For the price it was a very nice dinner!
As it was recognised that my father didn't finish his fried squids, because they were too tough as he claimed, the female owner/cook came to apologize! We would have never expected that, it was actually really sweet! In the end we got a price reduction and the owner/cook again came to apologize and even huged us. We were really posititively suprised and kind of moved by the way the owners want to make sure that the guests feel welcomed and recognised! There are plenty of restaurants (with much higher prices) out in the world which should take Ninja Crepes as a good example for treating guests!

We can absolutely recommend this place and would definitly come again!!

“As amazing as it is simple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Ninja Crepes is located in the middle of nowhere. It was surprisingly close to our hotel, so we sat there despite the poor looking environment.

The owner is an amazing woman, and the food is authentic and fabulous. It was our first meal in Thailand, and we've been missing it all along our trip.

Don't miss it!

What a good find. Excellent service, very good food and very very reasonable prices. Definitely well worth a visit to this simple restaurant.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Ninja Crepes served us the best Thai-food we experienced during our one month stay in Thailand February 2013. Even though the restaurant more or less is in a garage we really enjoyed our visit and thought that the service was great. We ended up there three times, and we never tend to go back to the same restaurant.
