Breakfast

A good place for a simple breakfast and coffee, clean with attentive staff. Close to some good foot massage parlours

Simply a great place to centre your daily activities from. Everything from very good coffee, large food choices during the day, to a truly enjoyable night time scene with great bars that are not expensive.

Situated on the busy Soi Yuan road with plenty of parking next to the restaurant, there is a money changer right outside the restaurant which does not require a passport to change money, unlike the bank directly opposite.The restaurant is spacious with both outside and inside seating. Food is inexpensive and there is an extensive menu. Ideal place to stop... More

They were out of both the main course and desert I ordered, it was annoying. But what I did have eventually was really nice. It was really hot in the restaurant and we didn't get the benefit of the fan.

I do think too many people eat thai food expecting Western service. I usually observe an inverse correlation between thai food and thai service. It's part of the experience for your order to be wrong and the waitress to swan around in her flip flops holding a baby and not notice you when you try to do that 'bill please'... More

We first visited this restaurant on our holiday 2 years ago and ate there more than once so we had intended to come back on our latest visit. It hasn't changed outwardly, the food was still good, but the service was very disappointing. The staff were scarce and unfriendly when they did arrive. It was not a busy evening and... More

The meals are small but well priced. The Thai food is very traditional without any real flair but we didn’t find that anywhere in Thailand. Traditional Thai is, “traditional Thai” food. Although small servings they are adequate and given the price, if you are still hungry just order another dish. The service was very friendly although not as attentive as... More
