Food was good and fresh as well as service. However, it was overpriced. We ordered , fried squid, Tom yum, chicken, fried cotton fish, clam and pineapple fried rice. 2 adults and 1 3 years old kids. It had damaged 1400 baths.

Can't fault the food - locals visit it for a reason. But the ambience was so-so, and the prices were more than I am used to paying in Thailand (roughly 1600THB for 2 people). Some may say that it's ok for seafood but I wasn't too impressed by the overall experience.

If your are in Ao Nang, you have to visit Krua Thara. For Thai regards the food is kind a expensive but for European people it is still affordable. But I have to admit, it was the best food I had in Ao Nang. I'm a huge fan of seafood. I tried some other restaurants too, the so called hallal... More

For sure this place deserves to have a higher rating than its current one. The lady who greets you usually at the entrance and clearly runs the place is such a pleasant and professional. The staff speak English, The food is great. No Doubt will be back there once back in the area. This was our second visit this week

I've lived and worked in Ao Nang for the past 4 years and this is my favorite place! Food is always fresh and service is always fantastic! This is a very local place that every tourist should try to get a true Thai experience!

A great place to experience fresh out of the tank seafood with great service and staff. I was there with my family total 12 people with babies and kids and they set the table taking care of all the little details for my family. The service was great and efficient for all the people at the table. I highly recommend... More

Food was tasty, but for simple rice dishes for 100 baht, I expected more quantity and quality. We saw people ordering seafood and they seemed happier (there is a tank with lobsters and such). If you're going for that, maybe you will be more lucky.

After looking at the Trip Advisor reviews we went for lunch at Krupa Thara. It wasn't a disappointment, the staff were really friendly and welcoming which was great. They helped us with how to work out the weight of crabs/prawns against THB etc as we didn't have a clue. There are tanks of live crabs etc. It's no frills and... More
