Jumbo Crab Meat in Yellow Curry Powder, Fantastic Tom Yam and A Special Thai Flower Dish

This restaurant is definitely worth a visit even though it's a little out of the way. The crab meat dished out in yellow curry was a standout as it came with jumbo size crab meats. Taste was pretty similar with other places' yellow curry powder crab meat dish. The tom yam with big head prawns were... read more

A simple restaurant with outstanding cuisine and real Thai ambience. The chili crab dish was exquisite as was just about everything else we ate. Top-notch, low-key.

I was left having to make a sixth choice from what looks to be a great menu. That was because my first five choices were unavailable. Two others in our four persons party suffered similarly, though they succeeded at their third choices. Yes, we arrived only an hour before advertised closing time, though they remained open well after that time.... More

Today we had chicken green curry, vegetables, boiled rice and fried fish. Food was great with real Thai flavours. Restaurant was packed and could hardly hear myself think with 100 customers talking like parrot. Good atmosphere and didn't have to wait too long to get fed. At one point there was a queue outside the door showing how popular this... More

We came here for lunch after reading the lonely planet review. Very underwhelming meal that didn't have much flavor or pizazz to it. I will say that the food was quite clean though. Would not return.

The main reason you would visit this place is of course for the food. And yes it is amazing. Not the biggest menu but that is sometimes better than a place with 50 pages of photos to flick through. The only thing letting this place down is the service they are pretty unfriendly but at the me of the day... More

Enjoyed the food. Value for money no frills restaurant. Waitress replaced our pad Thai after seeing a housefly fly into it. Everything was good except the prawn fritters which was just ok.

The restaurant was easy to find in the vicinity of my restaurant. The service was fast and efficient. I ordered stir-fired pork and chicken wings. Flavourwise, it was alright. The upset stomach afterwards, much less so.

I went there for breakfast (It opened 10:30 am) that might be the reason though...... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Bangkok for (relatively) simple, authentic Thai food at reasonable prices. The menu is limited by most standards, but everything I have tried is excellent. They serve what they have and won't customize much, so you have to be ready to try what's available, in the way they choose to prepare it. For... More
