Description: The restaurant is located 15 minutes from Ao Nang center in a small village named Din Daeng Noi. It is one of the most unique restaurant/ bar and bungalow operations in the South of Thailand. The chef is superb and the tropical ambience is amazing. It is a hidden gem.

Went there in the afternoon for an early dinner. Really beautiful place with pool and different ponds. Gary is super nice and his wife cooks delicious food. The ride there is nice and enjoyable, we went by scooter.
If you have a free night or day, definitely go there! Eat the duck curry!

We made reservations and were picked up from our hotel for a marginal fee that was added to the bill. After a warm welcome we could choose our table in one of the huts, nicely spread throughout the carefully maintained tropical garden. The service was very personal and we were well advised about the menu and what to order. The Thai food was exceptionally good, and more traditional than what you get in your resort or on the typical tourist location.
This restaurant is really worth the trip. If you don't have your own transportation, the pick up and delivery service is reliable and friendly. Go for dinner or lunch. We'd love to come back soon.

Just 15 - 20 mins drive from Ao Nang/Krabi near the village of Nong Thale, Gary and Bua have created an amazing oasis of beauty and tranquility that must be experienced.

Originally a restaurant, there are now also three beautiful bungalows which, like the individual restaurant settings, are separate and surrounded by beautiful ponds in a garden setting. If you get the chance to stay overnight (or 2) then you won't regret as the accommodation, service, food and ambience are second to none.

On site is a beautiful swimming pool that can be used by both accommodation and restaurant guests making this a perfect place to spend the afternoon bookended by lunch or dinner (or both)!

I ate and stayed here on two occasions over a couple of weeks and can't wait to go back on my next visit to Krabi. Whether you want to visit the restaurant or consider staying, the quality of the food, the friendliness of the staff and the setting were the equal of anything I've experienced in my years of travelling to Thailand.

We love the atmosphere and staff at the Frog and Catfish – and food is excellent as well. We often only have a single night free to be able to eat out each week, so when ever we can we come here for dinner and to talk with Bua and Garry.

The setting is beautiful and quiet, the tables are open but separated so they are still private and intimate, and the water pools and waterfalls make for a very enjoyable dining experience. Add to this their full Thai menu, expertly made and presented, and the combination makes the Frog and Catfish highly recommended!
