We spend at least a couple of months per year in Asia. Our favorite is Thailand as we love the food. Gecko restaurant is definitely the best place to eat in Krabi town. It has great food, great prices friendly staff and bags of atmosphere. The only problem is that it's nearly always full so you should book in advance.... More

We went there for dinner.. I have no idea why it has so many recommendations, the food was okay but nothing special and too expensive, you can have the same on the street for less money and with a better taste! Moreover the portions were way too little.

We were having a terrible time in Phuket because of the atrocious prices for pitiful food. When we moved to Krabi Town, we were similarly disappointed by the lack of decent food options. When we stumbled across this place we were absolutely amazed. The French owner personally came to explain the meals, and he acts as bartender. Four of us... More

We went to this restaurant twice and had both times an unbelievable tasty and fresh dinner! The fish (we tried the barracuda and crab curry as main dishes as well as the fried squid as appetizer) is very good! The French owner and his wife are excellent hosts!

We had Pad Thai, massaman curry and green papaija salad with chicken and shrimp. Pad thai with shrimp: needs more flavor but otherwise good. Spicy level 5 is not spicy at all. Massaman curry: good and rich flavors. Potato in it took most of the flavor in it but entire dish was good. Spice level 6 is not spicy at... More

Walked there in the rain, waited for 20 minutes, staff just ignored us. Really arrogant and horrible service. No one even said hello. I guess number one in Trip Advisor is a big deal. I'm glad that they're doing well, but they should really invest in good customer service.

Very good food. Take the Duck Breast, its asome, with a good glass of red wine. And the hospitality and the atmosphere are really great!
