Tawan is a great place for breakfast. You find American and European breakfast and also excellent french Crêpes. We booked our trip to koh phi phi there at a very good Price and the owner opened the place one hour earlier so we could get something to eat before the trip. Definitely a place we can recommend and will visit... More

We went for dinner at this place and 3/4 people had hair in their food. Even got threatened by the owner afterwards. Terrible experience. Would recommend to stay far away from here.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to see "Mexican Food" displayed outside of the cafe, and decided to try it. Growing up near the Mexican border, we both have the understanding that anything this far away from Mexico isn't going to be all that authentic. We ordered "Fried Tortilla and Avocado" (aka fresh fried chips and guacamole) from the... More

Me and my friend went here for breakfast as the reviews were so good. Prices are ok (50 baht for a bruschetta) but the food and drinks were a real disappointment. "Fresh" orange juice has never seen a fresh fruit, the portions as well as the service were poor. Dinner might be better but never go there for breakfast..

Wouldn't be a Krabi visit without this little gem. I was lured in with the 'Avocado Season' sign, and as a ravenous Australian desperately longing for anything avocado after 6 weeks in Thailand, my prayers were finally answered. Food was utmost deliciously avocado tainted and came out surprisingly swiftly considering there was one Thai lady in the kitchen. Love the... More

The picture shows how much we enjoyed our food! Empty plates all round. Delicious burgers and superb home made chips/fries. Only problem was choosing what to eat from the great menu. Great reviews thoroughly deserved.

You won't be disappointed when coming for breakfast lunch or dinner to this cosy place . From the Mexican dishes to the crêpes, the ingredients are fresh from the market, the dressings have all something special, and the staff always smiling and welcoming. Good quality food and cheap!
