This is the best place to eat in kanchanaburi bar none! And we've eaten in many of the eateries around.. Including the top rated! We had the shrimp Tom yum which was extremely tasty as it was so fresh and spicy the prawns were cooked to perfection! Just don't eat all the ingredients as they are there for 'flavour, not... More

This restaurant was recommended to us. It was difficult to find, but when we arrived, we were impressed by the foyer and we hoped for a lovely meal. WRONG! We shared spring rolls to start, which were overcooked. I ordered the Masaman Curry and my husband the Burmese Curry. When mine arrived it was stone cold. I sent it back... More

This was another TripAdvisor recommendation. Basically you can rely on the reviews and this was no different. It took us some time to find this small cafe, it was raining and we almost walked past it . As already said it is small, but the service was friendly,swift and the food was tasty and clean. All this and at very... More

It was good food, just like all the yummy Thai food! But, it was nice to be able to sit in A/C after a long day at the waterfalls. (And, it was nice to have some selections for the children that were familiar to them.) The first thing I noticed, though, was the children toys! (We were traveling with 4... More

Have been coming here on and off since it opened. Always great food whether Thai or Farang. A good place to start if you are not sure of Thai food. The Christmas dinner (2013) was excellent! Very friendly staff and owners. A good place to drop in to have a coffee or cold drink and pick up a book.

We couldn't believe how quickly the perfectly cooked food arrived! I only replied to work emails! We had not one complaint about the ingredients, all were fresh & full of flavour. Nice sized chunks of tender chicken in the sweet n sour chicken with cashew nuts again accompanied with crisp fresh vegetables. I was pleased to see the prawns were... More

This place is amazing.. Located near the historical sites of Kanchanburi, it is easy to find. Once you go in you will realize that you are in for an gastronomy experience. The menu seems to have food from lots of places. The chick mazo sandwich was good. The service was also good. My only complaint is that it is expensive... More
