Krua Thara in Krabi

Located near the National Park entrance at the end of Nopparat Thara beach this small restaurant is the place to go to satisfy any seafood cravings. It is has been around for 18 years, but was wiped out during the tsunami in 2004, and then rebuilt. It may look like any of the beachside restaurants but what sets them apart is the quality of their cooking and its popularity with the locals is testament to that. The menu titled “The World Of Seafood” doesn’t lie as the variety is wide, particularly the local shellfish; long clams, green mussels, giant yellow conch, scallops, venus shells, bloody clams any way you like it, fried, grilled, and steamed.

There’s much to choose from, but you can’t go wrong with the ‘tom yum koong’, firm-fleshed prawns in a perfectly balanced spicy-sour soup. Or the snapper and garlic, fried to perfection, crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Don’t pass up on the clams, either in a rich red sauce with basil or stir-fried with dry chilli paste. Combine your meal with a local cold brew and life can’t better than this. Great eatery for families and a group of friends.
