“Good enough! ”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Was staying at the Tharapark View Hotel so popped next door to this restaurant.

Zero atmosphere or customer service but you would never go to a small local restaurant looking for that. Food however was pretty good. They had two menus, a full items list and a lesser menu (probably for westerners that struggle to decide between which coloured curry to buy and then settle on Phad Thai anyway!)

I would go again.

“Average for food taste but the cleanliness of the restaurant is urgently need to improved.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

The restaurant is located nearby Thara Park but it might be hard if you drive there yourself. The food is average if compare to other local restaurants in Krabi town. However, this place need to improve the cleanliness as the floor was dropped by tissue paper from previous customers.

“Authentic Thai Dinner in Krabi”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Food was great, service was incredible and overall an amazing Thai experience. We were the only Caucasian's there but the place was a hot spot! It's a bit of a higher price than many other places in Thailand, but worth it as you are getting the whole package including great quality food. I highly recommend Nong Joke.

“Famous Krabi local cuisine”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Our driver confirmed that Nong Joke in Krabi Town was the most venerable restaurant for local restaurant food so off we went to sample the delights. The restaurant is on a road that does not seem too busy so it may not be easy to find. We ordered the local delicacies of gaeng som pla kapong (snapper in spicy and sour soup), pak goot (stir fried local vegetable), sataw pad goong (petai beans fried with shrimp). The gaeng som came with fresh bamboo which was light and added good texture to the dish (this bamboo was refreshingly not the pungent version you sometimes get in other Thai dishes). Pak goot was crunchy and very good, we finished it in minutes - yes we love vegetables! The pad sataw was surprisingly not spicy but quite sour - perhaps that's how they like it in the South. We were offered a tray of desserts to select from (this is when we remembered to use our camera!) and asked for their most popular one - coconut cream custard - and fresh coconut jelly. Both were nice to end the simple meal with. The menu has many more local dishes that we were not able to try so this calls for another visit.
