Another of my favorite places in Bangkok

Excellent food with incredibly cheap prices. Fantastic breakfast, great apple pie, and a superb choice of Thai and European dishes. It's on the opposite side of the street, from soi 2 Samsen rd.

We dropped in here for a curry and smoothie. Both were delicious and great value for money. The waiter, who might have been the owner, was very nice and served us quickly. He recommended we have some apple pie after our curry and it was a great recommendation, it was beautiful. Drop in for the apple pie at least!

Came for apple pie & vanilla ice cream for a late night treat (around 10pm) and was happy to find the place was still open. Delicious apple pie! Crust was almost cookie-like, but well worth the 75THB, which include choice of ice cream, or tea, or coffee. Today, had lunch. Lasagna with a side salad 159THB, and a papaya smoothie.... More

Whenever we're in Bangkok we always stop by for coffee and apple pie. Always great, not even mentioning the very low price!

The place is not very well decorated but you'll enjoy good Thai food (and cooking classes if you want) in a quite atmosphere far from the touristic places of the area. Good is simple and good. Prices are cheap.

Girl in hostel recommended this place.I Said I wanted good authentic thai food before I returned home.The owner/server is a really sound guy and with a bit of help i chose drunkards noodles with a thai level of spiciness!So hot and soooo delicious. Honestly feel very lucky to have found this place. Prices are super reasonable and I'm reading here... More

Ate here with my wife and 3 year old daughter. Easy to find. Lovely food and smoothies. The heart shaped dishes are a nice touch. They made us very welcome, especially my daughter, whom they made a big fuss over. Would definitely go again.

We went here based on the reviews on tripadvisor,and it was a great decision. The food was very tasty and pretty cheap at 80 baht for a main course. The waitresses were very friendly and the setting was pleasant. We had a great time here and we hope you will too.

Incredibly balanced shrimp Tom Yum soup. Ingredients were so fresh. Will return again for the rest of the menu.

Good food + coffee. Western food available. Air conditioned. Walking distance to Khao San. Along the Sam Sen Road but you could easily miss it.
