Best pad Thai in Bangkok

Very chilled out bar in a great location - perfect for people watching. Prices are good and they have very cheap fruit shakes. The food isn't great, but it is far from inedible. I'd say it's probably on par with street food. The exception is probably the breakfast fare, which is great value and nice quality. Overall though come for... More

We were here a couple of times and really enjoyed the Fruit Salad with Muesli and Yoghurt for breakfast which was good and surprisingly very cheap. Their juices were Yummy too!! It place also happen to have the cheapest beer in the area; normally full of expats and long staying guests. Another great location to do people watching!

Depending on your choice of poison in the Khoasan area (of which there are many) the Gecko bar is a nice, chilled experience where you can have a beer and sit back bar watch the world go. I didn't have the food but the atmosphere for a 1/2 beer stop is a good one.

The service is not always great but its usually full of expats and tourists and the drinks are quite cheap. Good place to go to escape the mania of khao San rd

This is the best bar in the BKK Khao San Road area, round the back of Wat Chana Song Khram , if you stand at the top of K.S.R. and walk through the Temple grounds past the school,under the arch, you will come out opposite The Gecko bar on the corner of Soi Rambuttri and Chana Songkhram .

Spent over a week in Bangkok and have been coming here for breakfast every day. With delicious fruit salad, muesli and yoghurt for only 35 baht it's a cheap and healthy option to start the day.

Cute little spot on Rambutri (sp?) Terrace! It looks very unsuspecting and small compared to some of the other restaurants along this road, but their food and fruit shakes are amazing (I highly recommend Gai Pad Kra Paw) !! Service was a little dodgy but overall I had a great meal!

Gecko Bar after visiting Bangkok at least twice a year for the last 15 years is still my favorite bar near the Khao San road area. People giving poor ratings to this place don't seem to understand that part of the charm of this little bar-restaurant are it's sometimes slow service, rickety chairs and tables and the toilet that you...
