Best Food in Krabi Town

Exclusively commissioned by TripAdvisor

Found this guide helpful

If you're a fan of Thai food and seafood, you're in for a treat in Krabi Town. There's a wide array of local and international restaurants serving everything from pad thai to pizza. I love grabbing a bowl of noodles at one of the local restaurants for lunch, then sampling various Thai snacks at the night market.

Chris S's City Tips

  • This part of Thailand is home to a big Muslim community, so the food scene here is ideal for halal travelers.
  • No need to worry about tipping. It's not expected at local restaurants, and the bigger restaurants already include a service fee on the bill.
  • If you're eating outside, bringing mosquito repellant is a must. The town is located next to a big river, so there's bound to be hundreds of them!

    Chris S Says:

    The Krabi Night Market, located in a big parking lot next to the river, is undoubtedly the best place in Krabi Town to get your foodie on. You'll find over a 100 different food options around here. I love sampling many different dishes and snacks while listening to the live bands playing each weekend.

    Popular among locals and those who travel a bit off the beaten track, Nong Joke is, hands down, Krabi Town's hidden gem. Follow the river all the way down the road, and you'll be rewarded with some of the best Southern Thai food you've ever tasted!

    One of my favorite places in town to grab a good coffee and a tasty, filling breakfast for the day ahead. The place does some very good Western-style breakfasts, so it's likely to be filled with tourists in the morning.

    Tawan sees diners coming back again and again, and after your first time eating here you'll find out exactly why. This place serves up a wide array of dishes, but the Mexican ones especially are extremely tasty. A welcome change from the common Thai fare you find elsewhere. The prices are surprisingly low, too.

    • If it's not too hot, opt for a table on the outdoor terrace. A great spot for people watching!
    • The restaurant isn't that big, so it gets crowded quickly. Arrive outside peak hours to avoid having to wait for a table.
    • Do try the smoothies and shakes!

    Maharat Bakery is run by a friendly Dutch owner, so of course I have to check this place out whenever I'm in Krabi. The Dutch delicacies I miss from back home are a very welcome change from the standard Thai fare served at most eateries, and although a bit on the pricey side, it's always well worth the little splurge.
