We had a hot seafood platter on Christmas Day, the food was delicious! Added bonus no service charge or tax and no charge for using a credit card.

“A restaurant with sunset + sea-view view”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Baanlay Thai Kitchen is located at Krabi Seafood Street, you can see amazing sea-view especially during sunset (Working hour staring from 4pm), although the restaurant beside was the Tripadvisor Traveler’s Favorite Fine Dining Restaurants 2013, however we still choose to dine here simply because of its great customer service and warmest welcome.
So, we have chosen the seat with beautiful sea-view and what surprised us the most is the valued seafood set offered by this restaurant. (Starting from 750 Baht to 2000 Baht) We ordered one seafood set dinner with steamed fish, BBQ Tiger Prawns, Squids and Thai fried Shell, besides, it also comes with Green curry and Thai fried noodles that only cost us 1750 Baht together with drinks.
Overall the food really taste fresh and they have an awesome Green curry that you shouldn’t missed. Before left we were provided with lemon water to wash our hand and we will never forget the sunset moment.
Thumbs up to their service and food, will have another visit again in future.

“Fantastic Food ,Horrible non-existent service”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

View - Fantastic !!! Dining just beside the sea.
Food - Fantastic !!! Very fresh seafood with lots of choices and so much variety to choose from.
Price - Its more expensive(there's lots of places cheaper) but you are paying for the view as well and the atmosphere

and the service - this restaurant has the WORST staffs ever. Rude,unfriendly and just plain horrible. They will ignore you ALL THE WAY. After they took your order thats it. (They all never NEVER smile even when taking my order) And halfway thru my dinner it drizzle a bit so i need to move table and NOONE bothered to assist me !!! I have to move my dishes myself plus 1 very heavy babychair !!! No one i mean no one assist me !!! They were all just hanging around looking lifeless...So note to the owner/boss please do something about your staff !!

“Tried them all, this was the best seafood”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We had comparative meals in lots of seafood restaurants in Ao Nang, including all of them on 'Seafood Street', and this place was by far the best. We ate here 3 times and the experience was uniformly excellent.
The fish is beautifully fresh and there is usually a wider selection than other restaurants. The BBQ chef is a wizard - all seafood was always cooked perfectly with good sauce.
Try the oysters. Do not be put off by the old story that big ones have inferior taste. The gigantic oysters here are the best I've ever tasted and a bargain at 100 baht each.
Finally, the manager Oh and his staff were so friendly and made each visit fun. They were very happy to make suggestions and give advice, and anticipated customer needs, which is rare in Thailand.
Cocktails were excellent, with the only let down being the limited wine list
