Very tasty food

We had the special of the day (yellow curry) which was delicious, and at 80b very good value for money. We also tried the squid and garlic, caramel pork and chicken fried rice with basil. The bill came to about 400b with beer. The owner understands the western palette and cooks the food... read more

Friendly service, cozy atmosphere, great food. Recommended: prawn and mango salad. If you're in the neighborhood, this is your best bet.

Extraordinary authentic thai food in a central place, near Banglamphu. Good value and very quiet place. I did not like that last two times I was there the manager is on her table looking or playing all time with her i pad. So she recomend you what to eat from there and even without looking at you, but still is... More

We went there as it was recommended by our guide lonely planet. The place is not easy to find and the thai food is just normal, nothing special or remarkable. The lady is pretty rude and unpolite but most of all the restaurant was full of cockroaches (we saw them after having already eaten, otherwise I would have ledt before).... More

Some of the nicest food I have ever tasted was served at this restaurant. Simply delicous Thai food, and very reasonably priced. Very highly recommended!

I came here because it is so well known, but I was the only one eating - probably because Thais don't want to pay these high prices. My food (gaeng pengang, if I remember right) was fine, though nothing special. I'm not sure if the grumpy owner (หน้าบึ้งม้าก) actually does any cooking any more because it appears it would take...

Some people complain about the service... Sure if you had your breakfast at one if the great (and relatively cheap) 5star hotels of Bangkok and you expect the same service at this small restaurant you could be disappointed. But I have been treated worse before in Greece and Paris, so I am able to look through this and enjoy the... More

Trust the negative reviews on this restaurant. Owner is close to being rude and the Thai food is carelessly put together. The taste lacks bite but the bill does not. Many reviews are pasted on the restaurant's walls, such as those from Fodors, but the writers should revisit this over-the-hill restaurant if they can find it again-our taxi driver gave... More

So so so crave-able. Khun Tim has forgotten more about Thai food than you will ever know. When I come to BKK with friends this is where I bring them. To taste her food is to know "Thai food". I know there are a handful of signature dishes here (like the banana flower salad) but I think you are best... More
