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

Any trip to thailand would be incomplete without some thai seafood, and if you want reasonably priced fresh seafood... this is your place. Even though its secluded and hard to find its well worth it. A must go place.

Was recommended by our Massage House people for lunch. Too bad we only have 2 people and has so much variety to choose from! We ordered couple of authentic Thai which hardly find in Krabi and it is so tasty!!! Will come again Friday for its squid & glass noodle crab. The price is very reasonable too. Same price I... More

Location is a lil out of the way from where tourists are concentrated. Therefore, one needs transport to go here. It was really quiet when we went there around 8pm, with almost all shops around it were closed. Food was decently priced with each dish serves well for 2 pax. Seafood were all fresh. Service was reasonably fast too.

We found this restaurant in Lonely Planet's guide to Thailand. They ranked this restaurant as maybe one of the best seafood restaurants in Thailand. I think that is taking it too far...but it is absolutly worth a visit or two. Food is fresh because it swims around in large tanks just inside the door. Being a party of 8 we... More

Was recommended by a friend who tried it. Both the crab & soft shell crab was yummy! Though getting there at night was pretty scary as there were no street lights.

We arrived at our hotel at about 8pm when the sun had already set. The hotel receptionist introduced this seafood restaurant to us and offered free shuttle service. We were planning to have an ad hoc meal at first, because this restaurant was not on my dinning list in Krabi, but it far exceeded my expectation. The seafood was fresh... More

A local recommended me this place since we weren't really satisfied with the food in Ao Nang. This place is good. Simple setup but the food is good and fresh. Price is normal.

I don't know if we came during the wrong time but we were offered terrible service at this place and the food was just average. The waiters made us waiting to show us a table, then for taking our orders. Finally, the food was just below average for Thailand
