I've read a number of the reviews and each indicates how good the food is and it was, so I won't bore you all again. So I thought I would be a little different and review the riverside boat tour.... By the way it was soooooo relaxing and so brilliant..... The tour costs 150 baht, cheap at half the price...... More

Good food, good drinks, good music. Even the staff are pretty good, let alone the location Highly musical Ole Blokes on guitars, followed by a younger band with music stands holding their iPads. Students in the audience, this is not just a tourist haunt, but a local hang out too. We enjoyed it!

We ate here on a Sunday evening when there were a few different live bands playing - there was a nice variety of Thai and English music and a great atmosphere as we ate overlooking the river. Food was good too - the Panang curry was my favourite!

Suberb, reasonably priced food. Better to book if going on Fri or sat. Live music, but venue is large enough to be distanced from it if you wish.

Was a beautiful spot facing water. Meals were great and cocktails were cheap. Had vegetarian options. Service was great. Will definitely go back again. My kids enjoyed it a lot.

The place is a bit noisy, suitable for party and celebration, but not for friends talk. Nice thai food very spicy. They will prepare birthday ice cream cake and sing birthday song if anyone celebrate birthday.
