“every backpackers dream restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

Ate here 5 times and was always pleased.
The food comes in big portions (western size), it is not at all expansive and you never have to wait for more then 5 min for your order.
The food is not amazing but it is very good. We really like the masman curry, the indian curry and the yougurt shake (that costs 40 baht!!)

“Instant Coffee Boat”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

What restaurant calls themself the coffee boat and doesn't serve real coffee. To add insult to injury, the instant coffee they served was made with luke-warm water from a water dispenser.

Bah humbug.

For 60 baht you can get a good breakfast sandwich with fruit salad.

Good shakes for 40 baht.
