Traditional Thai cusine with sitting on bamboo benches. I appreciated fresh sort of fish and their red snapper Garlic and Pepper is probably best fish i ve ever eaten in Thailand.

The place looks not that attractive at first glance, but it looks more native than other fancy restaurants. And you know what? The food here is AMAZING. As a person, who is trying local food second time in my life, I would say it tastes great. Try barracuda grilled fish, it's pretty hard to find one across the restaurants. The... More

We had dinner at Aree Baba. Just a short walking distance from our hotel. Staff had difficulty speaking English but they are nice. Every food item is great but drinks are just ok. Don't forget to order Tomyam Seafood!

We remembered this restaurant form our previous visit to Krabi in 2013, and were looking for it as a genuine trip destination. Now in 2016 it has moved about 800 meters up the road, on the same road, to a slightly smaller premises. And the food is as amazing as we have remembered:The Thai salads are fresh and crispy (we...

My partner and I were shocked when we saw that Aree Baba had gone, but luckily found out it had moved up the road. The food was delicious as always- especially the pepper & garlic fried squid. I order the pineapple rice every time I go, its a favourite of mine and my friends. Lovely waitress today too.

Found this place in 2012, but was at a different location, the food is just as good though. The little bamboo huts are quaint, nothing special. the whole fresh Fish is just so tasty, that we came back again and again. Prices are very reasonable.
