My local business contacts gave my Poo Dam as the place to visit. I would describe it as having your local Thai food and not necessarily the favourites that made Thai food famous like Pad Thai, Green and Red Curry. Yes they specialise in seafood with a selection of clams, mussels, horseshoe crabs and fish to be bbq on a charcoal bbq. Local Thai companies have their offsite dinners here.

There's not a lot of food for kids other than having non spicy selections so if your kids are into burgers, fish and chips, pizza or steaks then they will struggle here. I had to duck out and get a burger for one of the kids to eat from a cafe down the road.

We had glass noodle with prawn, crab coconut curry which was excellent, spicy Thai crispy chicken salad, bbq pork with lemon grass (too much fat left on pork) basil with squid, lemongrass shrimp soup Tom ka Gai. 4 drinks and 2 ice scream scoops here and that was 1,200 THB.

Come here and try local Krabi seafood.

It will cost you 400 THB by taxi from Ao Nang and 30 mins away. Also very close to the Big Crab landmark and the night market so excellent choice. If you don't like the menu then just try the two restaurants and cafe down the road.

Everyone enjoyed our meals. Grilled prawns and grilled salted sea perch were amazing. The service was also extremely fast, with a packed house

Sea food is very good and fresh. Portions are quite big, which is an advantage if you like eating as I do.

Staff are not pleasant, with various remarks as to serving the foreigners.

It's a popular place, it's always full with lots of locals.

If you like seafood, try it out.

Been here twice because they have amazingly delicious way to eat raw oysters. Staff are very nice and helpful. One of them showed us how to eat raw oysters step by step. Poo Dam's raw oyster is eaten with lime juice, garlic, fried onion, chili paste and kind of leaves. The combination was amazing and yet still kept the fresh taste of oyster. Fish for 2 people can be bought around 250 baht. Fruits juice is good. We paid 600-800 baht for dinner for 2 people. The restaurant was full at night, make sure to come early or after 8pm. Highly recommended!

Inexpensive, big serving size, many local people and Thai tourist, not many westerners. Poo Pad Pong Karee was very delicious.
