If there’s one thing that travelers always include in their itinerary, it’s the FOOD! And you’d be crazy not to try Thai food, least of all in Thailand! So in Krabi, we ate at Ton Ma Yom Thai Food Restaurant. During our visit last January 2015, it was ranked 2nd in Trip Advisor’s list of restaurants to try in Ao Nang. But as of writing, it’s now no. 1. I’m not surprised at all. It’s still one of the best meals I’ve had.
The location can be quite hard to find. Even with a local driver. But if you have time on your side and a bit of that adventure bone, it can prove to be a scenic drive. Krabi is a beautiful island. It’s similar to El Nido with its limestone karsts that are as high as any major city skyscrapers. I promised myself that I’d be back and stay longer. We only had the whole afternoon to explore the island and it was not enough. So I just had 3 agenda on my list: go to Ao Nang beach, have coffee at a local bakery and have lunch at Ton Ma Yom Restaurant.

I can’t rave about Ton Ma Yom enough. Charming dining area, open kitchen, incredible food, hands-on owner/Chef and the beautiful garden that surrounds the place. You wouldn’t think that it’s just a house converted into a restaurant in a residential area. The only thing that’s missing is the beach but it was a fabulous meal nonetheless.
So there you have it – our lovely lunch at Ton Ma Yom Thai Restaurant. If you’re thinking of a trip to Krabi, I 100% recommend this restaurant as it’s one of the best. No, it’s actually no.1! ;=)
