We ate here twice on holiday. the only restaurant we did while on a 2 week holiday. the service & food was excellent & it was cheap considering the quality. The green curry was excellent & the penang curry I had was very tasty & hot. just how it should be. all in all very authentic probably best thai we been to in Ao nang ☺

“Great experience”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

The food was by far the best we've had in Krabi and it was very reasonably priced. Between the two of us we had massaman curry, pad thai and tom kha gai (the portions are quite small so we could try more dishes). Mango sticky rice for dessert was great as well. Only thing was that their thai iced tea was really sweet.

“So glad we found it”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Long story short, we tried looking for this restaurant at night with no luck. The next day we went back to look for it in the daytime and finally found it! SO glad we went back for it coz it was the best meal we had in Krabi. We ordered pineapple fried rice, massaman curry, stir fry vegetables, and Thai ice tea. Ice tea was passable but the food was absolutely delicious!

“so good we went back the next night!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

I have just returned from krabi where we had the privilege of eating at bussaba. I'm always somewhat wary of visiting restaurants in new places based only on tripadvisor reviews... But I couldn't be more glad that we found this place through tripadvisor. We visited on Friday night and we're pleasantly surprised to see the restaurant off the main drag in Ao nang which is very busy even in off peak season as now. We were warmly welcomed by Phon, who offered us cocktails and promptly took our order. We ordered the calamari and chicken satay for appetisers. They were simply fantastic. The calamari was extremely fresh and the chicken came with both a lovely satay sauce and delicious dipping sauce.

We then had our main courses... Prawn with black pepper and garlic, pad thai with prawns and the red snapper fillet (which they offered to make with red curry sauce although it's not on the menu). I was absolutely blown away by the food. The pad thai was one of the best I've ever had... So good we ordered an extra portion! The red snapper sauce was full of lemongrass, kafir lime and was outstanding. I simply can't fault any of it, and it was beautifully presented.

For dessert we ordered the waffles (simply out of this world...), the banana fritters and the mango sticky rice. The waffles were probably our favourite (against stiff competition!) but all were excellent. We were served by phon and poi and I can't complement them enough on their fabulous thai hospitality, professionalism and their obvious pride in the food they serve.

Our experience was so good that we, for the first time ever, returned the next day (the last of our holiday). It was just as good the next day.

I would recommend this place to anyone... It was great value (around 2500 baht for 3 people, a vast amount of food and cocktails)... And the service is exceptional. In comparison to the other offerings in krabi, I would urge you to try this place!

We are already considering a trip back from Singapore just for the pad thai... :)

Spent 4days in ao Nang. Had dinner at lae lay grill and a bunch of tourist-trap restaurants.

This was by far the best meal of the trip. Reasonably priced too.
Tom kha gai (chicken coconut cream soup) was rich and luscious.
Beef massaman curry thick, nutty and tasty
Green curry chicken had a fierce kick to it
Even the omelette with shrimp was excellent
Deep fried ice cream was great. So was the mango sticky rice

2adults+2kids was about 1500baht for a very filling meal
