Reviewed 17 April 2014

This was probably our favourite restaurant of all the ones we visited during our Thailand trip.

The staff are all very friendly and the food is fantastic. It's not the cheapest place to eat, especially by Thai standards, as other reviewers have all ready mentioned but that didn't bother us.
We were staying in the Sheraton Krabi Resort opposite Gajanana, so to us the prices seemed pretty fair compared to the restaurants in the resort and an absolute bargain compared to curry nights out in the UK

We ate here 3 times and I soon got a reputation for liking the hot and spicy dishes such as Chicken Vindaloo and the owner decided to give me some of his special Nepalese chilli's to try...very hot but also very nice.

We were made to feel very welcome at this place, can't quite find the words to describe it, but it was just a really nice atmosphere, music not too loud, superb food and great staff...what more could you ask for.

If i ever go back to Krabi this will be the first restaurant i go to.

“Great indian & great service”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Enjoyed our indian food here and prices on par with surrounding restaurants. Service and owners are friendly, they even drove us back to the Nakamanda in the middle of a down pour!

We came back and ate a second night!

“Wonderful people and food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

After a long and tiring touristic day in Krabi, my young daughters were delighted to spot the Indian food restaurant while on the way to our hotel sofitel. We were cordially assisted by restaurant owner on which dish could come to our table fast (as we were famished) and genuinely guided even against our preference on a few dish (which is very rare as most restaurant sell what customer wants). The food was sumptuous for kids as well as for adults. The owner family was very curtious and encouraged us to relax al-fresco on a Thai low seating area post our dinner. Getting taxi to hotel was a bit challenging at that hour and we were deeply flattered by owners' proposal of dropping us at our hotel in their car. We never have experienced such a wonderful evening,

“Excellent Indian Food in Krabi from family run establishment”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We loved this restaurant. It was our family of 4 (2 teenage girls and my husband and myself) and we ALL loved the food, ambience and service! The mom and dad and son all served us and were helpful with what to order, did not over sell us, were friendly and it felt like you were eating with the "family". It was delicious food and great to have such authentic Indian food since we live on the west coast of the USA and this was a real treat!

“Must Visit - Best Indian Food in Krabi”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

This was my fourth straight year in Krabi. I was there for 2 weeks and once again spent at least 9 or 10 evenings at Gajanana. This restaurant is by far the best Indian food in Krabi.

The restaurant had undergone some big changes. There was an extended outdoor lounge area which had cushions on bamboo floor seats. This was great for relaxing with a cocktail or eating . They also expanded the restaurant and added an air conditioned seating area. Both changes were excellent improvements.

As a creature of habit, I found myself ordering the fish tikka with garlic naan every time I was there. On the occasions I ate with a larger group, we ordered the Nepalese style chicken curry, tandoori chicken, tandoori prawns, seekh kababs, lamb chops, lentils, and okra. No one was disappointed to say the least.

The highlight of my visits was spending time with Shreesta family who own the place. They are wonderful people whose company I thoroughly enjoy.
