“Lovely family & excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

A short stroll from our hostel (K R Mansion - cheap and cheerful) this was the perfect pick for our first meal in Krabi town. Run by a very sweet Italian-Thai family (three gorgeous kids) we were given popcorn while we waited, service with a BIG smile and lots of helpful advice on where to go next and some delicious food to boot! They serve Italian and Thai - we went for Thai (seafood and penang curries) and loved it, generous portions and free fruit to finish - but the pasta looked delicious too. We all left happy and very full. Planning to go back for lunch today :)

“Lovely restaurant at quiet top end of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Free bicycles and wifi, open all day apart from maybe shut for a couple of hours in the afternoon, this place serves Thai and fantastic Italian pasta dishes with pasta, parmesan etc imported from Milan. Lovely atmosphere, friendly Italian-Chinese couple running the place and decent prices too. I would definitely recommend. Stayed in Krabi for a fortnight and ate here about four times - their delicious chicken schnitzel on more than one occasion!

“great pasta & wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Mr.KRAB_i is run by a super nice Italian-Thai family. The service is amazing. As a guest you feel really special and welcome. It´s not like one of these touristic places that you got the feeling it´s only about making money.

Me and my boyfriend have been there three or four times and will definitely come again.
The food was always super delicious and fresh. I tried the pasta which is imported from Italy with great wine, also imported from Italy. The Espresso after Dinner tasted great too.

The music and allover atmosphere is relaxing!

Mr.KRAB-i is A MUST GO for anyone in Krabi!

“Great Atmosphere and Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

We ate here a few weeks after it opened and were impressed with the overall quality of the food and the service. The free cookies and popcorn were a nice touch! The restaurant is very clean and has been very tastefully restored. The owners are friendly and go the extra mile to create a very pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend calling in for a meal.
