Disagreeable owner and disgusting food. I ignored my Thai friend's advice about this place and decide to give it a try, the place certainly looks trustworthy with a nice (for Thailand) decoration and lots of good reviews on the walls, however the disappointment starts with the owner shouting to you from the back table to take your order and not...

Very disappointing! Don't be fooled into thinking you will have authentic Thai food.This restaurant can't even cook properly a simple trite thai dish as ka prao gai. Instead, I received a dish made with sugar, baby corns and lime leaves mixed within the basil and chicken. The rice was soggy and the egg was saturated in butter. The owner was... More

Worst experience in our three-weeks trip (BKK, Laos, Vietnam) We showed up asking if it was possible to eat there and the woman started shouting something in english about the waiting time. I said "ok, no problem, we have time", but after 40 minutes they didn't even take our order and the familes already in the place when we got... More

food was okay, but the service was absolute TERRIBLE!!! Imagine eating while the woman who took the orders, sits in the back and watches you the whole time. I dared to plug in my cellphone to charge it a bit while drinking the huge bottle of beer (they don't sell small ones, only 640 or something ml), and we were... More

I have many things to say about this place - but i'll stick to the "hightlights". The woman taking our order (from a table she was sitting at at the other side of the room) was unpleasant. There were dogs and dust everywhere - my friend was not able to go to the bathroom because a dog refused to go... More

This is a medium priced place for Bangkok in the Old City. I only went once but thought the 'legendary banana blossom salad', curry shrimp and Makheva Yao were especially tasty

Really great Thai traditional food! Has spicy soup with coconut milk and various mushrooms. They also have a wide assortment of vegetarian dishes.

We have visited this restaurant 4 times over the past 5 years following a review in an Australian paper. There have been stories that it has closed. No it hasn't. Only 5 tables. From a service perspective, we suggest you go with the flow, it can be eccentric, but really, it doesn't detract from the experience. It was great today... More

My partner and I really enjoyed this restaurant. It is deceiving because it doesn't look flash but my goodness the food was terrific. We went a little later about 2pm so noone else was there. We had the banana leaf salad, and eggplant salad, white fish and mango salad. We found the owner to be very pleasant. She ordered for... More

I've visited this restaurant three times and haven't yet changed my order, banana flower salad and red curried prawns. The food is great, however there is a downside. The owner tends to have a sleeping problem. Everytime I've been there she's been asleep at her desk and she doesn't take too kindly to being woken. Also, there is a dog... More
