“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

There are several restaurants close to Sheraton Krabi resort and all are reasonable both in terms of food quality and pricing. In this one the food was very good: I would call Thai with European touch.
The setting is very basic but clean and the big advantage is that most Sheraton guests seem to be lazy to walk ca. 100 meters up the hill (not steep) to the left of Sheraton gate which means that while restaurants closer to Sheraton get crowded for a dinner and sometimes the service is rather slow than fast there are usually only few people in Maya and you do not need to wait long to get your dinner.

“Best food I had in Thailand”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Me and my wife were staying at the Sheraton opposite and went here for a cocktail before going out and decided to order a selection of starters. I am glad I did, they turned out to be the best I have ever had. The tuna is outstanding. The owner and staff are very pleasant even inviting me behind the bar to make my own cocktails. I ordered one cocktail to find a spirit required was not available only to find they popped out and bought a bottle for the following night. The staff cannot do enough for you. We ended up starting our nights out here on quite a few occasions. Now the place may not look like a typical restaurant having a plain concrete floor with a roof, but don't be fooled, this is Thailand!! The food is cheap for the quality you get which to be honest the way it is presented and its taste would not look out of place in a posh London restaurant. The day we were leaving we went for a final full course meal and the main courses were also excellent. If you are staying at the Sheraton or passing by you MUST MUST give this place a try.

“Great authentic Thai food - better and cheaper than the Sheraton!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Great option to get out of the Sheraton. One of the best pad thai's that we had in thailand. Friendly staff - definitely worth going to if you're staying at the Sheraton as the food there is extremely mediocre and Mayas is right across the street. We liked it enough to go back for lunch a few days later. One of the few places, also, that made our food spicy upon request

“Dont bother to walk up the hill”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

The worst of the five restaurants we visited. The place is grubby, the service OK but the food was not great and compared with the other places, expensive.

“A Nice Surprize”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

This fairly new restaurant is located just to the left of the Sheraton Krabi. It has both a restaurant and lounge area although both are in one large room. We liked the funky vibe of this place. The food was excellent. I had the Shoemaker steak and it was exactly what I had been craving - protein! Request the gravy on the side if you prefer to not have it on the steak. My husband had the seafood Thai curry which he enjoyed. For dessert we had the fried banana with ice cream as they were out of their apple dessert. All in all we really enjoyed this place and would definitely recommend it.
