Pretty lackluster food. They have a large menu which will suit varied tastes. Panang curry came out cold with chicken a bit underdone. We didn’t drink but the beer list looked good.

Staff were pleasant. Food okay. Didn’t like cigarette smoke wafting in all directions. Washing dishes in the street unusual.

Stopped here for a vodka soda (78 baht) and ended up getting hungry. Chicken pad Thai was actually really nice! Stir fried morning glory is a must, get your greens in. Spring rolls were really greasy, but one of those guilty delights while drinking. I...More

3rd floor restaurant with a good variety of food and drinks. Had some spring rolls and a curry dish with rice and were more than full as generous portions. Beer was cold - which is a plus and quick friendly service

They're usually open from 11am-noon until late, except naturally certain public holidays where alcohol sales are banned.
