We had a lovely dinner seated in the upstairs portion (there is on-sand dining area as well) of the restaurant. As others have noted, the soft shell crab appetizer is excellent -- served with two sauces, it really whet our appetite. The Tom Yam Poh Tak soup had a good variety of seafood -- it's a single portion serving that... More

We just ordered a whole red snapper and some prawns. Both were fresh as my wife could select them from the display outside the restaurant. We had the fish steamed Thai-style and although it was good, the fish was somewhat overcooked and thus turned up a little dry, according to my wife. The prawns was done well in BBQ. Worth... More

We sat right by the beach at a candle-lit table. The location is fantastic and it is right on the fisherman's village strip. The food taste is just average (bordering on below average). The restaurant like all other beach side restaurants is on the pricier side.

Fantastic location, awesome beach view and very friendly server. Food quality doesn't live up to similar standards, experienced better Thai food at much even low end restaurants. The balance of spices was missing in everything I ordered and too sweet. Would have given 1 star but the ambience makes up for food to some extent.

Beautiful restaurant and atmosphere with nice food.... unfortunately the staff let it down hugely. We decided to pay with credit card.. but the restauarant staff never returned it to us, nor did we get offered a receipt (although the charge did go through on my account) We waited for 45 minutes while they searched for the card, offered excuses and...

Loved the beachfront seating, and the service staff is excellent. The food is good, but a bit heavy on the sauce, too much soy sauce, not necessary. Pad Thai did not taste like authentic pad Thai, too heavily sauced, sticky sweet. Was ok, I'd return for the vibe but not necessarily the food.

The food at Krua Bophut is first class . It is a bit more expensive than other places but definitely worth it! The prawn cakes were delicious as was the papaya salad. For main course the white snapper with green curry is a must.

This thai restaurant is along the beach, where Fishermans market is - the perfect place to eat if you are at the market on a Friday but don’t fancy eating at the street stalls. There are tables outside, right by the beach, as well as tables inside the traditional dark-timber restaurant. The trees outside were draped with lights and it... More

Similar to many other restaurant along fisherman village , the outdoor seating area is set right on the beach which are very nice. Service is great But food is pretty average . One of worrr stir fried chicken with cashew nuts I had in Thailand but tom yum is okay. Won't recommend.

Thank I L
