The food was amazing! Everyone was very gracious and familiar with tourists so they explained everything nicely. I am sure we looked a bit puzzled at times! There are plenty of tables to sit down, even by the water. The prices are reasonable and yes, be prepared to buy things to take home! This is not a "fancy" restaurant it is truly a market so you can watch them prepare your food but it is all done outside on a "porch" area. The food is traditional Thai so you will need to be a bit adventurous if you have never tried it. I suggest you walk around the entire porch first to see what they have first. If you buy the first things you see then you may be too full when you get to the rest of the porch! If you can`t decide what to buy, then get in the "soup" line and get a bowl of soup (pho) to start. It is wonderful, with noodles and fresh bean sprouts and carrots and parsnips and generally "recognizable" stuff. After a bowl of the soup you may want to try everything! We attended the service and it was a grand experience. We had never been to such a service. Read the signs about the "rules" first or you can go on their website as it has lots of information. Clean bathrooms. This place is a must see!
