Really enjoyed our dinner here - so much so we came back the following night! Really nice restaurant which is nicely decorated with a nice atmosphere so you would feel just as comfortable if you were only having a drink there. I had a penang curry and my boyfriend a massaman curry - both cooked beautifully but i preferred the taste of the massaman so we both had this again the following night! Also nicely presented and the service was good, the owner was really friendly without being overly friendly if you know what i mean! Good value too, although the Thai food was cheaper than the western food (we've come across this many times though). Only thing i would say is that as cute as the kids are that live there, they very nearly got annoying as they came past our table a couple of times - maybe best to keep them out the back or upstairs!!

We came here for lunch. To be really honest, I was very disappointed with the service - especially after reading all the lovely reviews however maybe today wasn't a good time to visit. The owner and staff looked a little preoccupied with another table of other diners. That's ok-it happens!! But the food, the food was good.
We ordered the larb, fish massaman curry and a stir fried veggie dish. All dishes were full of flavors and we finished every last morsel.
Great meal - thanks!!

We wandered into Mr. Krab-i somewhat late at night after a flight from Bangkok on our third day in Thailand. And what a find! Both my partner and I both enjoy the slightly quirky atmopshere of this launch point to many islands town and Mr. Krab-i fit right in.
The food was very solid. There was plenty of Thai, plenty of "Amercian" and many Italian options. It was all very tasty. The prices were a smidge high for my tastes but I recognize I was in a very nice little restaurant/bar instead of eating street food. And the quality was quite high. Highlights include reasonably priced tasty wine and real parmessan to get grated onto your food if you ask for it.
As good as the food was the best part of all was the company and the atmosphere. The owner - Mossimo is Italian. Between him and his wife they speak 6 languages I believe - Thai, English, Spanish, Italian, French and Mandarin. Mossimo made a point to visit each table and has that easy charisma that you immediatly warm to. He gave my partner and I a free shot each (and then changed mine to a fruit shake when he learned I didn't drink) and welcomed us to Krabi-Town with a toast. The restaurant was full of folks from all-over.. And it manages to be both a good place to get a drink and be very family friendly.
We only stayed in Krabi overnight but we went here twice and I look very forward to coming back to this fabulous retaurant and seeing the wonderful family that runs it.
Salud!
