Good food. Tasty and fresh. A little under par service and pretty basic interior. Cockroaches all over as usual in Bkk..

This place was recommended by our tour guide and it didn’t disappoint us. The place was clean and food was good. We ordered the papaya salad and grilled beef. I also loved the pandan dessert. Staff was nice but can be friendlier.

Food - average Sweet (the famous Red Ruby in Coconut milk) - terrible. Strongly NOT recommended อาหาร (ส้มตำไทยปู ตำปลาดุกฟู ผัดหมี่ คอหมูย่าง ปีกไก่ทอด ) รสชาดเหมือนที่อื่น ไม่พิเศษ ขนมหวาน โดยเฉพาะ ทับทิมกรอบ แย่มาก กระทิน้อย จืด ทำให้ขาดรสชาด

My expectations were too high because of the reviews I read before going there. But sadly the expectations were not met, I would prefer the ones from the street side.

The last time I came here, I had a pretty ordinary experience. I’m happy to report that second time around, a much happier visit was had. Staff were way more attentive, even though the restaurant was way busier this visit. I would rate this 4...More

We have been here a couple of times and it never disappoints. Although, the restaurant is quite small, it's charming and adds to the character of the place. The food delicious and tastes like food straight from the Isan (Esaan) region (North East of Thailand)....More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop

Excellent Northeastern Thai cuisine and friendly atmosphere, newly opened and very welcoming. Great food served in "Tapas" style share plates. Beware the hot sauce that comes with the fried chicken thighs!
