Got shunted out of our seats, as a regular with a self imposed affliction requiring a reinforced chair apparently needed them. Food, I took the burger, which was tasty but dripping with grease to the point it saturated the bun. Beer was cold and inexpensive. I won't go back here.

Well how to reply to your review without swearing. Do you always go around offending people ? I'm just glad i wasn't here at the time or you would have been the first person to ever get thrown out of my bar. Good riddance to you . Thanks for the review it takes all sorts to make the world go... More

Sometimes you just want a meat pie if you are an Aussie, so we tried 4 different ones. Normal meat,chicken & mushroom, Madras, And a spicy one they all came with there own jug of mixed flavours to match your pie. Washed down with icy beers while had an iced coffee.

Had an awesome time, it was not at all crowded owing to off season but the servers were prompt with the service. The chicken peri peri burger was nice & juicy. The souvenir bottle wrap is really cute so got one 😀

There's always a good atmosphere here and we always seem to stay longer than planned which is always a good sign, have never eaten here only had drinks but the plates of food we saw looked very good, definitely a must in Bang Niang.

Went for lunch and while the food was good, it's not as good as rated. The bar itself is quite shabby and the service was random. So it's ok but not fantastic.

Hi there whilst we try to cater for all tastes we can't please every one all the time. Anyhow i'm pleased you enjoyed the food here and as I explained in an earlier response after 7 months of busy high season the bar tends to be a bit jaded around the edges but come September all will be shiny and...
