“Great Seafood within 200 KM”
Review of Krua Med Sai

Krua Med Sai
Ranked #55 of 137 Restaurants in Cha-am
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 1, 2015


We had been looking for good seafood restaurant north of Surat Thani and finally found it in Cha-am. We gave Krua Med Sai an excellent score for its seafood quality and taste. As for the services, a fair score would be slightly better than 'poor' since there was no service except the taking of order and the settlement of payment which they even wrongly charged us.

Now back to the seafood, we arrived the restaurant around 1:00 p.m. when the normal customers were on their way out. We ordered a dish of calamari in Kapi, a bowl of fish Tomyam, and 2 big crabs for our lunch. They were all very good to excellent specially the crabs. The crab were fresh and solid which we seldom had anywhere else. After our lunch, we decided that this was the seafood restaurant we can compare to the one in Surat Thani.

Fresh seafood, well-prepared with a beachside ambience. If you like fluffy, crispy crab omelette you won't be disappointed. The curry crab also has big chunks of crabmeat. We ordered a whole fried tilapia and it was quite nice.

As for the caveats, there are only 12 seaside tables out of about 100, so if it's full you may end up seated closer to the pungent kitchen than the beach. We came for lunch when it was somewhat empty and the service was lackluster. Maybe they are more on the ball when it is bustling, but here there were more than a few playing on their phones or picking their teeth with a dazed faraway look. There are also lots of stray dogs sniffing around for scraps, and your table will likely be approached by souvenir and lottery ticket vendors. If the weather is oppressive hot and humid, then the scattered portable electric fans probably won't help much for tables in the interior.

Overall, it's worth coming if you're in the area and in the mood for all of the above. It's not bad at all.
