Thailand is home to some of the world’s best-known and loved dishes. Your first trip to this country can be a revolutionary experience – with that local Thai place in your hometown suddenly not seeming as great as you remembered. Doing as the locals do is always sound travelling advice – especially when it comes to food – so here’s a list of the best neighbourhood joints in Krabi Town.

Ma Ong

Restaurant, Thai, $$$

A restaurant that can be tricky to find – due to the website being entirely in Thai – Ma Ong is one of the best lunch spots in Krabi Town. Its khao mok gai (fragrant yellow rice and chicken, similar to a biryani) is well known throughout the city and is likely to be the best you’ll try on your travels. With other favourites such as beef panang curry available, this restaurant is modest but delicious, and will undoubtedly have no tourists in sight.
