We dined here on 2 seperate occastions firstly on the 10th march then in the 13th march both occastions were fantastic
I will comment on the food but firstly i must say the level of service was,excellent on both occastions the owners su and dieter made us feel so welcome as if we were vip guests when they had a full restaurant of guests
Su who is thai has a fantastic passion for her business but most of all for the food that she cooks , her husband dieter is the perfect host always available for his guests .
They also have a very talented head chef name Ha who i had the privlage to.meet and thank him for the superb food we had eaten over the 2 nights we dined there.
On both occastions we had the special seafood baskets maybe some peaple may think itcis expensive but for those that do you mustvbe aware that fish is an expensive commodity the world over .
I myself live in bangkok and have dined at many top restaurants including nahm , paste, bo lan , shangrila , mandorian oriental but the level of cooking at the crab company for me surpassed all of these other restaurants .
Both myself and my wife work in the hospitality industry myself as,a,chef for 27 years and my wife as a receptionist for 11 years
It is always these little hidden away restaurants like the crab company that do not get the recognition they deserve
Once again thankyou to su and dieter keep on the great work see you again soon

Wow what a find, we only wanted a drink overlooking the sea but got so much more. We called in for a cocktail at happy hour and ended up ordering the tempura prawns and calamari, We like spicy sauces so asked the manager if instead of the mayonnaise with the calamari if she had anything spicy, and so she made us her grandmothers sauce and it was wonderful so much so we ordered the same again. Great atmosphere, clean, affordable and all cooked to order with fantastic service. The owner even came round and greeted every table, lovely man with a fantastic manager and staff. Thank you for a fantastic meal and evening, we will return.
Please do give them a try, you will not be disappointed.

Best restaurant in the whole aera. We composed ourselves our seafood platter and it was simply great. We spend a very nice evening in this restaurant thanks to Dieter and the friendly staff. We come back (de Hoegaarden)

Very good the fish fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff friendly and advised the best method of having the selected fish. The blue crab for instance. I would certainly go again as feel you get value for money

Craving crab linguine, it did not disappoint! Sitting on chair overlooking Aonang bay, cliffs in back drop,sun set, wow. This is located with many other seafood restaurants on the bend on main beach street (hardish to find called 'seafood street'). Great flavours, good amount of crab, price was decent. The owner (?? a Ferang) had a chat to us, really enjoyed this meal, Australian restaurant quality. Probably the best meal I had on trip!
Take the time to eat here!
