I was excited to try this place but unfortunately was underwhelmed with the food quality. Most dishes were just decent in quality and flavor, and some were barely edible. The decor is also very ugly. The service was good, however.

this restaurant is recommended in all travel guides and my experience with such places in Thailand is usually bad. I make a big exemption here as food was simply delicious, near to the point of perfection. We ordered randomly around 5 different dishes from the...More

Firstly, we were confused as to why this restaurant is so highly lauded, we found the food well below average and service was very poor, with bad atmosphere. One of the meals we ordered was mixed seafood fried rice and apparently that's just fish...and I...More

The only restaurant in Thailand where I had a racist experience. If you're dark skinned, you will not be served here. I turned up before 6pm on weekday when it wasn't even fully busy but was completely ignored by the waitress at the door. Instead,...More

The BEST Tom yum we’ve had, we had to order 2! :) They definitely do not skimp on the shrimp or mushrooms (my favorites), and they don’t chop all of the seasonings super tiny like some other restaurants. And the flavor combination is spot on!...More

You can tell how good the food is by how busy this restaurant is. The food is served hot and fast. It is one of my top choices when I crave for Thai cuisine. My favourite dish would be prawn and lotus roots in tamarind...More

Found this little authentic Thai eatery not far from our hostel with good reviews. No idea what we ordered but the rice came in a heart shape and the food was very tasty, albeit spicier than Geri, Mel B and Mel C combined

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
