This restaurant is great value! The food is amazing and the prices are so cheap! The Lonely Planet guide mentioned this resto prepares the dishes for the Royal Thai family, so you may want to try it. The visit to this restaurant should be around lunch or late lunch, though, because the closing time is around 5pm. Do not expect... More

We reached the restaurant shortly after 2.00 p.m. so it was not crowded and we got a table for two immediately. Parking is nearby you must pay 30 Baht per hour. We had 5 different dishes and 2 desserts and had only a little bit left for the doggy bag. We liked every dish. Our favorites are the omelett and... More

One of the best meals I've had in a restaurant in Bangkok!! Got the green curry and it was really good- ended up being my group's favorite dish there although all the other dishes were great as well. And spicy!! Maybe it's because we went near off-season, but it seemed like we were the only foreigners there which we took... More

If Rick Stein and The Hairy Bikers recommend this place, it must be worth a try! It really is a must. Easy to find. Totally authentic. Go for the ubiquitous green curry with chicken and steamed rice.....it will be the best and most authentic you've ever had.....after all, the Thai royal family can't be wrong.

Krua apsorn is where we had the best meal in Bangkok. The restaurant is always crowded so be prepared to que for about 15mins outside the resto but the effort will be paid of as you had your meal. Their stir fry cab with yellow chili is definitely a must try. It was sooooo good and they put generous amount... More

Worth the effort to find (just remember North of the library and you should discover this restaurant). The dishes were of a good standard, but not exceptional. The portions were small, but not overly expensive. We did especially enjoy the crab dishes in yellow curry and also the papa salad which was hot and spicy. We have dined at other... More
