We visited this place twice while in Bangkok. The dishes might not look special but the taste is so delicious that we made a special trip just to go eat there before we came back to California. We ordered crab meat with yellow chili, stir fry mushroom, spicy salad with seafood, omelet with crab, and fried fish cake. The only... More

A big claim to make as I travelled around quite a bit, but this restaurant was fantastic and the food was delicious. It's really near the Grand Temple, but it's set away from the crowd and it's certainly not a tourist trap. Apart from a few other obvious tourists, most people seemed to be local families and groups. When we... More

This small, unassuming restaurant is where the King gets food delivered from. That should tell you how good it is. The food here is amazing, the staff is great. Try the coconut Ice Cream. If you get the opportunity to meet the owners (which we did), they are truly genuine and amazing people. Go out of your way for this... More

Saw this place on hairy bikers programme and wanted to try. Went for lunch today and had chicken green curry, curried crab, fish cakes and battered prawn with rice. Everything was fresh and tasted great, especially the crab curry. If I was staying longer I would go back for that! They were friendly and the service was very good and... More

We had seen this restaurant on the Hairy Bikers BBC show, took us a while to find it, but was well worth the search. We had the crab curry, which was probably one of the best I've ever tasted.

For variety, quality, and down home style, Krua Apsorn was an overall favorite at lunch in Bangkok. Referred by our very knowledgable local friend...great discovery!

The muscles in spicy sauce and the crab with yellow chillies was delicious! This place is filled with locals and is in the top 100 foodie places to visit and I see why. The prices are reasonable and it was the best meal I had in Bangkok. The address was a bit tough to find and we ended up going... More

Based on Tripadvisor and other reviews, we booked dinner at Krua Apsorn and braved the taxi there. (Tip: use expressway when coming from Sukhimvit area) The hotel helped to reserve the dishes ahead and write down the address in that for the taxi driver who took some time to locate this National Library branch but we were finally there.

This is quite a unique place that fills with local and almost has no tourist. The food is very traditional, spicy, and of course authentic. Everything from fried fish, fried omelet, and sautéed vegetable taste great here. The only complain I have is the old ambient that need renovation

Visited after watching Hairy Bikers' tour round Thailand. Decided to go to the Samsen Rd branch as had read it was the original. It is a distance away from the shopping area and in the old town, neat the Thewet pier/ market. Went for lunch and it was packed with people and we had to wait a few minutes for... More
