We had a nice thai meal here but nothing exceptional and prices were ok. Beers were cheap and very cold and were really needed as this was a lunchtimes meal and it was about 95 degrees

Food is really good, you pay a little more for that but is worth it. I had the roasted duck in red curry and it is a hit!

The food was amazing, specially the papaya salad! The staff was super kind. I spent 6 days in Krabi and I think I ate 3 or 4 times here. Atmosphere is also very relaxed and the have this tables that look like little bungalows. Prices were very good.

Very good food, very nice and friendly stuff. I have been there several times. It was always very good thai food. There are other restaurants in Ao Nang which are more expensive but the food is never that good. However, i have to mention that the toilet which is shared with other bars and restaurants around is a bit horrible.

Don't go. Worst som tam ever. Waited ages for service. Disorganised staff. With so much choice try some of the fabulous alternatives.

Had dinner at the Banana Leaf this evening. The place looks nice from the outside. But there are nicer looking restaurants. However if you like Thai food there are limited options. There seemed to be only one waitress who spoke good English. Unfortunately not ours. After a struggle to get the order sorted our starters arrived, I had the Chicken... More

The local food is pretty good but that's expected. However the western food is sub par. It lacks the quality and taste of what a steak should be. I guess there aren't many average steak places around. The beef was probably from a local cow.
