There is lots of good food in Krabi! As with all beach destinations, the seafood in Krabi is top-notch. A popular place to indulge in fresh seafood while admiring the seaview is Seafood Street. Two popular restaurants in this street are Ban Lay Thai Kitchen and The Longtail Boat. The restaurants are located over water so it’s a great place to revel in the beautiful sunset while having dinner. However, the tables fill up very quickly so it is best that you make reservations beforehand.
If you prefer to dine in a fancier setting, check out Lae Lay Grill or The Hilltop, located on a steep slope behind Ao Nang Beach. Since the restaurants are situated at such a high level, they provide splendid vantage points to watch the beautiful sunset of Krabi. Both restaurants provide free shuttle services between the restaurant and your hotel (Ao Nang area) so it’s really convenient! Menu presents a wide selection of Thai cuisine and seafood, so there’s definitely something that will appeal to your palates.
Last but not least, it is essential that you try the street food in Krabi! There are lots of street vendors selling yummylicious street food everywhere. We tried the street food along Ao Nang Beach as well as at the famous Walking Street in Krabi Town. Make sure you try the delicious Chocolate Banana Pancakes! The luscious melted chocolate spread across the warm banana slices complimented the soft and crumbly pancake perfectly, giving a rich sweetness that had us swooning from the first bite. Other favourites include the takoyaki balls (Octopus Balls), Thai-style duck rice, as well as Thailand’s signature Pad Thai.
