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.

Earmarked the place based on a recommendation from a chef friend. Was told to make sure I went to the Samsen road one - it was in an unassuming neighborhood near some teachers' quarters. We didn't get english menus, but based on the pictures, reviews i have read earlier and my rudimentary Thai ordering wasn't too hard. The show-stopper definitely... More

Took a long walk to Democracy Monument then googled for a place to have my later lunch. Chanced upon this place and the food definitely did not disappoint. Ordered the crab omelette and Pad Thai. Waitress not too friendly when I asked for WiFi but oh well.. Will definitely come back again to try the other dishes.

I went to one of the branches of this restaurant, located at Sanarmbin Nam street. The restaurant looks very simple but there were quite a lot of customers which imply the special of its food and/or service. We ordered sour curry (with lotus stolon), fried veggie with mince pork, omelette with crab meat, crab meat fried with yellow hot pepper,... More

This restaurant was near where we stayed and recommended by the hotel staff. We ordered 6 dishes (some flower and minced pork, deep fried fish, curry crab, fried pork with vegetables, fried mushrooms, and etc.) and all of them were great. We especially enjoyed the curry crab - we got 2 of them, so good. Coconut icecream dessert was good,... More

Having checked in at a nearby boutique hotel, we were suggested to visit this restaurant. Not sure if this was a friendly referral or just a tourist scam, we were pleasantly surprised to see we were the only tourists in the restaurant. It is simple, very simple, the menu is quite basic, service fast and professional, but there is nothing... More

Second visit and enjoyed the food tremendously as per first visit. Must order the curry crab with succulent and aromatic crab meat with every bite. The crab meat has been extracted from the shells for total flavourful enjoyment. The stir fried Thai flowers veggie dish with minced meat is absolutely delicious. The crab omelette is yummy too so don't pass... More

The perfect family restaurant. Simple stir fry dishes done to perfection. Tried the sour pork, fried chicken, doi kachong flower stir fry, and of course the yellow crab curry. Lots of other good stuff. Great for a Sunday lunch.

Great Thai food, cooked with love and subtlety. Doesn't slap you in the face with spice the way some other Thai restaurants do. We thought the service was great. The lady boss was very indulgent and looked fondly on us as we feasted, and ordered second and third rounds! They speak very halting basic English here. But the menu comes... More

An old favorite, my family eat here all the time. Thai style crab omelet is a must. Service has their hands full during lunch time, so aim for a little after one in the afternoon, the crowd will be less busy and the staff can take care of you slightly better.

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.
