It's been more than a decade this continues to be a pilgrimage site for the family. A separate vegetarian menu and good selection of beverages. Very busy so reservations recommended.

Steamed seafood curry paste was the nicest dish we tried. The rest are really so so but still edible. Not overly fantastic but not to say not worth trying. Avoid the thab thim krob as it just ended the dining experience miserably.

Visited Sunday 18 Sept for dinner. The restaurant main was decorated like a Thai house, with a musician playing a Thai classical instrument . One glance and there were seats available, but we were directed to a side extension which looked like a side alley. Where we were seated, we could see all the later entrants to the restaurant, and...

Agreed the life performance enhanced the meal experience. Agreed the attitude of the reception (we were received by someone not in uniform, whom we thought it's the boss) needs much improvement. Most of the dishes cost 130-200 baht, and 100 baht for veg dishes, which we found acceptable. Our Steamed Pancakes came hot, but the fried veg came lukewarm. The... More

Ban Khun Mae has always been my favourite dinner place when I am in Bangkok. In fact I had written a review previously.. They received an award in 2012 and I've been dining there since 2013... However standards have been dipping.. both in service standards and food quality. We arrived and was standing at the door in full sight of... More

Went here twice during our stay in Bangkok for dinner. The experience was good. The food was served really fast during both our visits. The first time we went, we got the Tom Yum Goong, the pandan-wrapped chicken, pineapple baked rice, and the minced pork with holy basil. Besides the Tom Yum Goong and minced pork, the other 2 dishes... More

My Friend brought me here as I wanted to eat original Thai food instead of fusion Thai. It seems to be a popular place for locals as well as tourists. There is a 2 storey Restuarant like a old house. Every decoration is nostalgic. There was even a traditional music performance on the second floor. He ordered some dishes which... More
