Chances are, your fish was still swimming as you walked in the door. Three hungry people sat down for dinner and three very full people left. For me, this was the best seafood restaurant, we had visited, in Thailand. We ordered crab, fish, along with sautéed vegetables and rice. The family style portions were quite large. The restaurant is a... More

This place is simple and their fish and crab dishes are very good. The rice with crab meat is great and for the fish, you can choose it and they will grill or steam it with local seasoning (reminder: thai food is spicy so do not forget to tell them to reduce the chili)

There are a lot of restaurants in Krabi offering seafood but this is the best one I've been to. Very friendly staff, reasonable prices and tanks upon tanks of fresh seafood to choose from. Nothing fancy but wonderful food. I highly recommend this place.

We followed Lonely planet recommedation and were dissapointed. Worst meal we had in Ao nang region. Crab with curry - terrible and hard to eat (no proper equipment), almost no meat in there and taste of curry one can hardly distinguish. Fish and tiger prowns overgriled, like chewing gumm. Prices were decent. Go somewhere else... closer.

Oh when will we learn? We have followed the LP advice for restaurants in the past and been disappointed. Same with this place unfortunately. The food is nice enough but no where near what you might be led to believe by the guidebook. I had crab, my son had snapper. and my wife had grouper. All fairly reasonable but not... More

Not a romantic or high end place - it's in front of the beach but there's no view whatsoever and it's just a hall with tables - but typical no frills seafood restaurant focused on products directly from their own blue crab and fish tank. It is full of thai tourists while the places nextdoors are empty. The menu is... More

Going in...I already knew there were mixed reviews. Lonely Planet said it was one of the best seafood places in Thailand, however...it didn't have such high marks on Trip Advisor. For starters, the service we received was less than stellar mostly because they were slow and not very welcoming. We got the papaya salad...which was adequate, but the shrimp was... More
