“Darn it! (An inside secret finally revealed on TA)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Darn it! This was, for over a decade, my all-time favourite place in Bangkok. Patrons kept it secret from Websites - only sharing it personally with closest friends to protect it from being over-run by "non-family" strangers.

But now it has been "out-ed".

I understand that, since my last visit, there might have been a change in the cooking staff, and that the place may have slipped a bit. That might drop it down to a mere 5-stars (it has been heavenly over the years, for food and understated nice vibe).

“Great food, truly local, nice staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

I lived in Bangkok in 2005 and have come back every two or three years. The Crown Kitchen is really a must, mostly because I work with the UN which has their buidling two blocks away. The restaurant has basically all typical Thai food, and even the pineapple rice is served INSIDE A PINEAPPLE! The staff are very nice, there are some who are perfectly fluent in English and they are also very kind when you try to order in broken Thai (they correct you and everything). It's also pretty cheap.
