Great food and service

At first we didnt like it as it wasn't super clean( dead cockroach in bathroom), but when we got our food we were surprized by the good quality. You should try their beef luk lak, it was super delicious. And if you're looking for awestern foid, their pasta was amazing too.

Did not eat here, just called for iced coffee. Friendly waitresses, quick service. Front seating outside over looks the river. Great place for watching the world go by.

Good sized menu features local and Western food at this riverside popular place. Was not terribly impressed by the local dishes, perhaps it's more of a cheap western food place.

My girlfriend and I were both pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. The prices are decent and they know how to mix a drink. What more could you want?

I was in a group of 10 and staff put a table together for us without any fuss. The chairs were so comfortable to relax in and enjoy our time there. The food was delicious, and the service was fantastic. Will definitely recommend to friends back home!

The place is in the touristy area, but the prices and value are still good. A bit noisy (street and drunken tourists enjoying the happy hour) but still pleasant experience. Fish amok was great!

First off the food was good,it was a nice restaurant, the service was good and it was reasonably priced,I would definitely eat there again based on all that. The problem with this restaurant and why it is only rated 2 (would have been 4)is because in the hour/hour and a half we were in there about 10-15 beggars and children... More
