I'm still dreaming about my meal at this restaurant. I think there are two locations - we went to the one in the town (not next to the pier), but they picked us up from our hotel which was amazing since it was pouring rain at the time. You pick your fish and how you'd like it cooked. I wish... More

Crab is swimming in tank. Great freshness. Expect to pay 5 to 7 usd per crab. Fish and shell fishes are fresh too. Great taste. One of the best seafood places.

Chances are, your fish was still swimming as you walked in the door. Three hungry people sat down for dinner and three very full people left. For me, this was the best seafood restaurant, we had visited, in Thailand. We ordered crab, fish, along with sautéed vegetables and rice. The family style portions were quite large. The restaurant is a... More

This place is simple and their fish and crab dishes are very good. The rice with crab meat is great and for the fish, you can choose it and they will grill or steam it with local seasoning (reminder: thai food is spicy so do not forget to tell them to reduce the chili)

There are a lot of restaurants in Krabi offering seafood but this is the best one I've been to. Very friendly staff, reasonable prices and tanks upon tanks of fresh seafood to choose from. Nothing fancy but wonderful food. I highly recommend this place.

We followed Lonely planet recommedation and were dissapointed. Worst meal we had in Ao nang region. Crab with curry - terrible and hard to eat (no proper equipment), almost no meat in there and taste of curry one can hardly distinguish. Fish and tiger prowns overgriled, like chewing gumm. Prices were decent. Go somewhere else... closer.

Thank Tomaz M
