“Best restaurant in Krabi”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This was a return visit to Krabi and the food here had been so good previously that we just had to go back. It feels so comfortable and the welcome from Jariya is tremendous.
The prices are very competitive and the food is tremendous, with a superb range to address any taste. I would strongly suggest anyone to try the specials, particularly the Prawns in Tamarind sauce - you would not find it on many menus and is exceptionally good.
The location is at the end of the main part of Krabi town, so quieter and less hectic. The decor eclectic, with wonderful natural wood tables and chairs, and the service both personal and tremendous.

It was impressive that despite 3 months between our visits, they recalled we needed to have a wholly gluten free menu, and ensured every meal we had there was safe - thank you Jariya!

Can't wait to go back - very higly recommended.

“Great place to eat.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Great food, friendly owners & quiet location. My Massaman curry was lovely and for only 100 baht! My wife enjoyed her Thai curry, which was also only 100 baht. Bargain!

“Great food, cheap price and good service!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Me and my girlfriend was staying 2 days in Krabi before we moved on to Ao Nang and Phi Phi. We read the review here first and decided to try this restaurant. I had the traditional Pad Thai the first day which was the best in Thailand so far and the next day i tried their specialty Barrcuda fish which was even better. Not so many restaurants in Krabi town, but this was perfect! The atmosphere was fine, but because of its neighboor restaurant (Local thai) its location could have been better.

“Lovely place.”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

My family and I had lunch here and it was lovely. Great atmosphere, wonderful food. The papaya salad was especially delicious (I've had many in Thailand). It's on a quieter street and nicely decorated so you feel like you're tucked away in a cozy spot. I recommend this place. They have kid-friendly options on the menu as well.

“good food nice place, good service”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

One of our first stops as we were walking around was for lunch here after reading the other tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Food was good and unique drinks were cold and tasty. Only area they could improve upon is service. after they brought you the drink and food you didn't see them again as they pretty much hung out in the back.
