One of the best meals we had in our travels in Thailand. We had no problems with service or delays as mentioned by other reviewers.The staff don't speak much English but they do have an English menu with photos. Everything was yummy and it was not expensive. It was easy to find, on the Samsen Rd just north of the... More

The food was absolutely divine, if we ever go back to Thailand we'll definitely eat here again. Only visited by locals and hard to find but absolutely worth it.

What a disappointing experience! The crab in curry powder was not very warm, neither was the rice. We had the idea that the crab curry was pre-cooked as it only took a few minutes to serve the dish. The pad thai gung was really dry and cold too. We didn't dare to eat the shrimps. The fried mushrooms were just... More

We found this restaurant by accident. I have a theory when travelling to look for the busiest restaurants where the local people are eating, At 12, there was a queue out the door, so we joined it. It was some of the best food I had in Thailand, with a special mention of the crab curry which was out of... More

Based on the others review, I tried this restaurant. Krua Apsorn its only 10 minutes from the famous Grand Palace (by Tuktuk). Basically, I was afraid to try this restaurant before, because of bad services from others review regarding at Krua Apsorn. But honestly, I've got a good and warmth services here. I order three types of food here :... More

I live on the other side of town but having read the reviews I thought I'd give it a try. I have to say the food was just average, you can get equally good food at many many places in Bangkok. As for the service. Does 1 hour 30 minutes for two dishes seem like a reasonable wait? No.. I... More

The food is the best Thai I have ever tasted. Being featured by the "Hairy Bikers" Asian Adventure and wanting to experience the non-chic real Thai food I hunted the restaurant down. Easily missed, (get a local to write the name in Thai script helps) there is nothing exceptional about the décor, it is more local café style - as... More

Thai food lovers!! You need to come here!! The place is not so fancy but the food is. I'd recommend "Crab Curry", very delicious!! You can just eat them like that or with warm jasmine rice. The price's not that expensive too. Try once, and you'll keep coming back!

I am almost reluctant to write about Krua Apsorn for the fear of too many people finding out about it. Located in a rather dull neighborhood next to the National Library, it's a very local restaurant that serves excellent Thai food. Very little English seems to be spoken, but that should not deter anyone. The menu has plenty of pictures,... More
