I came here because the place is recomended in some guidebooks but I have to say that I was disapointed. The food was just average, omelete very dry and bland and mediocre curry

I blame Rick Stein! Was featured on one of his programs and looked good - food certainly. Food "fit for a King" he said. Well didn't even get that far. Took the trouble to walk up for Lunch when I was at flower market. I walked in and stood about but was ignored. Really didn't think it was worth persevering... More

I got the feeling we were sitting in someone's living room (yes the TV was on). The staff were a bit shy but very nice and the food was very good. We tried the green curry and the spicy pork with vegetables and both were very good with the deep and complex flavours you only get with a multitude of... More

I highly recommend ordering the green curry. The service was great, the old Thai waitress was very welcoming and the place is very homey.

We popped here on the basis of the lonely planet. Unfortunately it took a huge amount of time to get a table, in that time we watched various tables ignored when they were trying to pay and order - which meant we were waiting for a very long time for a table to be turned over. Once we were sat... More

We loved everything about this place. It looks as local and authentic as it can, the food is yummy (go for the soup!) and the value or money is just outstanding. The staff was friendly and very accommodating, especially to our 3 year old. We have truly enjoyed our dinner at poj sapa kar and we couldn't get enough of... More

First of all, we arrived when they were about to close. But the staff was very nice anyway, and they served us quite quickly. We read that it is the oldest thai restaurant in Bangkok. The inside has not been rebuilt, it looks really 'authentic'. Food was very good, we tried a recommendation we read in our guide: the lemon... More

I wonder if this place would've been half as popular had Rick Stein not have highlighted it on his Far Eastern Odyssey? We tried to find this place on a previous visit during the evening which was not good as they don’t open for dinner, so we never got there. However on this occasion we found it during the day...

I first heard about this restaurant on a Rick Stein television show and he said the food was superb so I was really looking forward to this. It didn't disappoint, this place is the epitome of the idiom "don't judge a book by its cover" because the restaurant is nondescript and needs decorating but don't be put of because the... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
