Had a good meal at Ban Khun Mae at Siam Square Soi 8. The food came quickly and was tasty. Orderered shrimp cake, fried fish, green curry, pad thai (a little on the sweet side) and red ruby dessert (with water chestnut in each ruby). The fish was fresh. No complaints about the food. Spent about 1000B.

I know about this restaurant is from a Hong kong YouTuber who recommended it. To my disappointment, once stepped into the restaurant, I already sensed that I had made a wrong choice. At dinner time, this restaurant was not full or not even 3/4 of the place is occupied, which shouldn't be the case of a highly recommended restaurant. Secondly,... More

The only reason why this place has a fair business is due to its location. Overtly situated smack in the middle of Siam Square, Ban Khun Mae Restaurant offers standard and generic thai cuisine for the masses. But there's nothing neither unique nor interesting offered on the menu other than standard Thai dishes which is ok accept the taste in... More

I just had dinner with my colleagus tonight at the restaurant. We were asking for seperate bills since the moment we ordered food. When we were asking for the bills, the waitress gave us one bill. When I asked him for seperate bills, he was acting rude and even kind of throwing the revised bills. That's ashamed. This was my... More

Used to visit this restaurant in the past for it's good food, service and ambience. However this visit is a great disappointment. The food is bland and the service bad and even without a smile.

They serve very delicious Thai food here. Even though they are located in Siam Square and cater to tourists, the taste of the food is still very authentic. We ordered tomyum soup, pandanus chicken, green curry, paenang pork curry and grilled pork neck. They were all yummy. The food was also very well presented.

Thank Phi S
