Had lunch here while en-route to Phuket. This place is very charming and rustic with beautifully decorated wooden furnitures and fixtures the owner made herself. Owner likes carpentry as a hobby and makes it a point to make all her furniture in her restaurant. Food is good with a combination of Thai and western dishes. It's a great place to... More

I have to say we were initially a little skeptical after reading the recent negative reviews, however after having just had dinner I can say that our experience was excellent! The reviews below complaining about the catfish can simply be attributed to a lack of understanding of basic Thai dishes. Yes, the catfish is deep fried, then minced up into... More

I found this place as i traveled to Krabi and booked a night there after a long drive from Phuket and arrived right around sunset. At first i was confused because for some reason i thought it was in a beach town area near the water but it is more discreet on a small road. After parking me and my... More

Visited this restaurant due to high ranking on TA & it could not have been more disappointing on every level. We walked in to a completely empty restaurant - save for the staff who were having their own party off to the side of where the guests sit - and it continued to go downhill from there. The service was... More

We read the great reviews and decided it was worth the trek. Walking into the place, it looked really nice with tables spread around the pools/garden, each with their own covering. The menu looked good, with plenty of the usual Thai fare, plus a few special items from the house. So far so good, except the staff were seemingly having... More

Such a lovely, tranquil restaurant off the beaten track. The restaurant/pool area is a beautifully created garden with ponds and waterfalls to wonder around. The food was all excellent, and we felt like we were staying with friends. Highly recommended.

We have been in November 2016 in the frog and catfish, it was recommended by a friend. A beautiful little place with a great ambiance.

The restaurant is located 15 minutes from Ao Nang center in a small village named Din Daeng Noi. It is one of the most unique restaurant/ bar and bungalow operations in the South of Thailand. The chef is superb and the tropical ambience is amazing. It is a hidden gem.
