“Probably the best thai meal I ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Let me first say that I'm a bit of a food geek, which means i've had my fair share of thai meals.

Been here twice over the last three days and was very impressed both times. The food is tasty, flavours well balanced, spices never too dominating, and the presentation is very delicate. Although it at some times seems they try too hard, the service is flawless; attentive, polight and efficient.

We have tried six dishes so far, and the curry-based ones are really outstanding. Try the snapper in green curry, left me speachless. And to top it all, they've priced the dishes about 10-15% above regional average, which makes a visit to Busaba almost ridiculously cheap. This place deserves to be packed every night.

Keep up the good work!

“Great little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Delicious authentic Thai food that was just a short walk from where we stayed while in Ao Nang (near the Pakasai resort). Great service and a beautiful little restaurant. A little more on the pricey side for Ao Nang but definitely worth it.

“Excellent food in a nice clean restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Took tuktuk from the pier as we are staying at centara which cost about 100 baht. Ask driver to take you to carnivore as its next door. We arrived about 830 and was surprised there was only one other table occupied and to be sure I am still perplexed as its one of the better restaurants we have tried. Nice proper tablecloths and napkins and excellent value! We had the mixed platter starter all excellent and then snapper fillet in red curry sauce and massaman curry,presentation is excellent with carrot flowers and served on bamboo leaves etc and just right on taste (and heat!). 2 beers with a bill about 1250. Much better than the night before where the food and surroundings were no where near as good for 100 beats cheaper! Know which restaurant I will be going back too! Got to give this lovely restaurant a try if in ao nang

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Up a side road in Ao Nang, near the Pakasai Resort and across the road from the Krabi Thai Village Resort, is an unexpectedly classy little restaurant. Would be one of our best Thai restaurant experiences in our 15 trips to Thailand. Quite small, perhaps intimate, with linen table cloths, linen napkins!!!!, (not tissues ) quality glassware and quality cutlery. The menu had excellent choices and was inexpensive. The food quality and presentation was excellent, best ever mango and sticky rice presentation. The professional staff performance was also excellent, a much higher level than expected. How many inexpensive restaurants present you with the menu opened at the deserts page when you request deserts? At the end of the meal, we were presented with an icy cold towlette. Only one downside for some tourists, the restaurant is not A/C, but does have ceiling fans. Certainly worth the 5 minute walk , or the short 20 baht ride from the main drag.
