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

It was our first restaurant in Bangkok, on our first day. We were completely alone in the restaurant, so the ambiance was a bit creepy. Right after the waitress took our order, we saw our first giant bug on the restaurant floor and another small one on our table. The food was good though we felt a bit homesick...

The lemon grass omelet was fantastic! This place is a little hard to find because the facade is very simple, but ask a local and he/she can point it to you. At night, the adjacent street is lined with street food vendors selling sweet thai pancakes and milk teas.

After seeing the restaurant on Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey we decided to track this restaurant down and try it out. We are very glad we did the food was very good, service good and atmosphere just what you expect from a local eatery. We had the fried green chicken curry and red beef curry and enjoyed both. The restaurant... More

Legendary Prince's Cook! Traditional Thai foods are nice and tasty. Mouth-watering. Seems to be plain but with style. You'll receive the receipt with nicest handwriting and not many digits on that.
