For fear of creating overhyped expectations, I will say that we love to eat out. It doesn't have to be fancy, but it has to be fresh, well-priced and the service has to be sincere. We had all of the above at Mangosteen Garden Reataurant. If I could fly, I would fly back to Kanchanaburi anytime I craved Thai food-... More

Really enjoyed the food, top quality and friendly service. They have moved to the 'other side' of the bridge and you need to drive for 2-3 minutes to get there.

I love the breakfast here! The smoked salmon with poached eggs is delish! I'm also a sucker for a lot of the western main courses. There's a thai set with lab, som tam, fried chicken and more that's really worth a try. Great as an appetiser to share. Cocktails are awesome. I always go for Friday.

Lovely restaurant in Kanchanaburi. Be careful as the restaurant moved location ealier this year and is now located on the opposite side of the river to the village (take a Tuk-Tuk). Very reasonably priced with good quality and excellent presentation. Air conditioned room downstairs for those who need to be refreshed.

The service in Thailand can sometimes be a little disappointing, so it was very refreshing to have the restaurant go above and beyond to rectify, what turned out to be a non-issue. And the food was great. We had a Massaman curry with roti and a very interesting Isarn burger which was bloody brilliant. Can definitely recommend. Family friendly too.

The recently moved restaurant is now even more of a delight to eat in. You have the choice of indoor aircon or sit under shade which is well cooled by fans. Now with a nice garden view which I believe they will improve on....they really have improved what already was very good. Pleasant seating area, wonderful staff and all sorts... More

Great food. Reasonably priced. Wide menu. Thai food and western options equally delicious. Friendly and accommodating staff. Delicious apple pie and ice cream for dessert. Games for the kids. A roof top outdoor restaurant as well as an air conditioned indoor section. Also a beautiful garden restaurant.
