Looks a bit dodgy but the food was great. I had a prawn dish which was tasty and fresh, beer was cold and reasonable. About 400 Bart for two inc two large Singha so pretty reasonable. Pleasantly surprised by the food which is the main thing as long as you can get over the furniture and grubbiness of it! Go... More

Been going here for 30 years. The old man was shuffling around then and his wife worked in the front. My favourite place in Bangkok. All the other reviews are fairly accurate. But they calculate the bill on the number of empty plates on your table (and they will be empty) and the number of empty drinks bottles. Still cheap... More

The menu has no prices and charges might be unusually high. The owner looks at you and decide how much you should pay. Prices are much higher than in Chinatown restaurant with air-con.

We were tempted in here after a long walk up Sukhumvit, and on spying the roast duck spit roasting out the front. It's run by an elderly couple, who have obviously been here for years! Don't expect chat, cleanliness, amazing service. So expect quick, tasty, cheap Chinese food! Have low expectations and leave happy with a full belly!

Don't ask for pad Thai. This is a Chinese restaurant and a very very good one at that. Get the pork wan tons. You'll not be disappointed. Try not to look in the kitchen and if your a clean freak give it a miss. But if your a realist about what Asian kitchens are mostly like then ignore and you'll... More

Do not expect lavish 5 star service or smart waiters pampering you with smile. You just be put to sit down in a seedy corner of Sukhumvit and the orders to the kitchen are given in the old trtadition i.e. shouting .....but wait. The food you will eatr will make up for the lack of detail as the tastes are... More

This restaurant I have been in many times during the last 35 years or so when I was visiting Bangkok. The amazing thing is that nothing has really changed it this place in those years. The owner of course is getting some older, but he is still there. The prices also have of course changed in those years, but absolutely... More

We - a group of four - were treated and served well. At the time of our meal the corner restaurant was not packed so we got a spacious table for six. The lady of the house handed over the menus (showing the same prices 160/300 THB for each item) and food came quickly. Everything was tasty though not super... More

This place is an absolute must. It is run by a guy who appears to be 112 and his much younger wife who is probably only 77. They are both ornery! I watched as they refused service to a single person as they didn't want to give up a large table for just one person, and I was reminded of... More

Food here is great and this is probably the best roast duck in Sukhumvit but I would stick to ordering the one dish meals from the menu where the price is clearly shown. I would also strongly recommend asking for a breakdown. We were not presented with a bill but the proprietor just named the price. We were four pax... More
