Our second visit and it delivers what it is, great, authentic Thai food. The decor is simple and authentic, the servers were prompt and very friendly. We ordered two cocktails, which were refreshing and really delicious, and our food was excellent.

The great TA reviews about the food were absolutely correct. The Som Tam, Pad See Euw, and especially the Mussamun Chicken were fantastic. Our only complaint is that, unlike other restaurants on the Bang Niang strip, there were no fans. On a typical warm and humid Thai evening without a breeze stirring, fans are a must.

The food was excellent and the owners catered for our tastes. I would definitely recommend the shrimp cakes for starter we shared one portion between us & the red curry... More

Ate here for dinner, and was very pleased. Great range, seems more authentic than others along the strip. Delicious food, like the way you can select the level of spice to your meal. Service was great!

The restaurant served a buffé that Sunday for 250 baht per person. That included a lot of different dishes as well as papaya salad made by request and fruit. Drinks are not included. Service was good, and there was also a nice young German-speaking man who was helpful and kind. Some spring rolls would have been a nice addition.

Best location just nest to the market. Isan hot pot and somtam were nice. But too busy for dinner time. We will be back after high season again.

We ate here based on TA reviews. While the northern style of cooking they serve is a nice change-of-pace, on the night of our visit very few of the ingredients were very fresh. Luckily we didn't order much and left after two dishes.

I really loved this place for the authentic food, the ambiance, the value and the great coconut shakes! We also tried other top reviewed restaurants including Krua Rim Tang and the Orchid Cafe and my favourites were Khao Niau and the Orchid Cafe. Both are the best value for what they offer but they offer 2 very different styles of... More
