We'd heard about Krua Apsorn and its chef 'Auntie Daeng' from the 'Hairy Bikers', so were determined to find it and sample her cooking. It was easy to find, just down the road from the National Library. Fairly small inside, it's worth either booking or getting there for an early lunch as it gets busy. We had fish cakes which...

We try this restaurant which is rated as one of the top 100 restaurant in the world. We were curious with this, so we try it. It is not what you would say as really class, but its nice and clean. But when you try their crab in a curry powder, yummy! This is what I longed for. Their fried... More

Order lots of interesting Thai dishes that you can share out if you are in a group so you can sample lots of things. Standout dishes were stir-fried auricularia with egg, green mussels with basil leaves and chili, Thai flower with pork, yellow curry with prawns and lotus shoots.

A restaurant near the democracy monument (10min walk from Khaosarn road). I will start with the only negative point I could find for this restaurant: depends on what time you go there, you may wait a bit before get a table because a lot of people are going there! Most of them are local which is always a good sign... More

My french Guide Book had mentioned this place and I think that the New York Times also had an article mentioning it. We walked from the National Museum for a late lunch. The place looks very simple, but it was full, a good mix of Asian and European people. The menu is in English and my husband ordered 4 dishes,... More

I used to be a regular at Krua Apsorn way before it was made popular by expats and magazines. The food used to be really good, with great service and usually visited by locals only. Nowadays it has changed. I've visited the place twice recently and on both occasions it was the same. The food was still good, but the... More

Serveral dishes are not too spicy for Western to try. The restaurant is famous and a great place to taste Thai foods for affordable price.

just go for the food, canteen ambiance, service is nice but minimum, deep fried tofu at his best, the crab omelette at 80 baht is the signature and a great green curry.

Staying in Dusit

Neighborhood Profile
When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city. The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and the serenity here is in stark contrast with the chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.
