Had the great pleasure of meeting and being photographed with Auntie Daeng. Simple surroundings with checked table cloths. Would camp outside. Get there around 4.30pm as there seems to be a lull then. Food excellent. A memory that will stay forever.

A simple food shop with the best Thai food one could imagine. In BKK nowadays it's extremely difficult to find a place with good authentic Thai food like this. This is a no nonsense place that you go for the food not the ambience. Service is ok but do not expect much. Every dish I've had at Krua Apsorn was... More

Picked this place after lots of good reviews on here and we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere is lively and the place is full of locals. We enjoyed it so much we went back upon our return to Bangkok. We were too bold on our first visit (also our first meal in Thailand) when the waitress warned us about the spice,... More

We came to this location after going to the Dinsor location, and to tell you the truth the Dinsor one is so much better! In food, taste, and service. We ordered the same thing both times, crab curry, chicken wings, and veggies. Service here is very blah, not friendly. Land of no smiles here. Looked like a bunch of women... More

Thanks to the Hairy Bikers for alerting us to this gem. Wonderful food!! A must. But hard to find. We had the Crab Sir Fry with yelow curry, green thai curry and chicken wings (don-t ask--teenage boys!!)--all great! Finished off with coconut ice.

If you want to eat authentic Thai food with subtle tastes at affordable prices then don't miss this place - clean, buzzy and basic with the best food we had in our 3 days in Bangkok, it was so good we went back!

Plastic table cloths and amazing food. The crab with yellow chilli remains one of the best crab dishes I have ever had but everything we had was fantastic. If I am ever in Bangkok this is a must re-visit restaurant for exceptional no-frills thai food. Well loved with good reason.

It is simple restaurant with 3 or 4 branches in Bangkok and Nontaburi. This restaurant provides good and delicious Thai food and fair price [ Lunch and dinner ]. The owner was the chef of Her Royal Highness Princess Galyani Vadhana. Therefore, the taste can be guaranteed.

To me it's everything a good restaurant should be - unpretentious, reasonably priced, large menu and a good lively atmosphere - most restaurants can only usually tick one of those boxes and this one ticks them all. One of the more senior waiters explained that they didn't always have the crab or the mussels as recommended by so many reviewers... More
