It's a bit over the top to have this establishment in the best restaurants on TripAdvisor. Perhaps just wrong category but we went for lunch and they have only snacks on offer. They might got popular because of the Pokemons as some other reviewers mentioned earlier..

We had the Thai grilled chicken salad and the curried chicken panini... both were fresh and delicious. Thoroughly enjoyable place to have a casual meal.

The title says it all. The food is really good and fresh. We went there several times to have lunch or breakfast and we tried the thai food and the western food. Both were really delicious, we especially like the thai chicken salad. The restaurant is also very nicely decorated with a lot of plants and thai inspired features. The... More

this small pleasant cafe is just off the main road across from the popular wat. feels surprisingly secluded for being so close to this tourist attraction. food is very modestly priced and tasty. there are several breakfast options around 100 baht. Service is friendly and prompt.

Came here for a quick lunch but stayed for a delicious meal. Every thing is fresh and the service is great. Unfortunately I didn't had the time to visit the place a second time

We had lunch here because we had a great experience in 2015. We had vegetarian spring rolls and a salad. Food was full of flavour. Menu has a mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. Service was friendly and efficient. Outside seating is in a partially enclosed garden, lovely place to eat and relax. Highly recommended this restaurant

Where to begin-- from the super adorable decor, to the delicious food, Taa-Peng-Cat is a must! I stuffed myself with more than I probably should have-- but how else was I going to give you guys an objective review??? I started with a pineapple-strawberry-mango smoothie- sans milk or yogurt, and a cinnamon roll. Yum! I followed with a vegetarian omelet... More

We were specifically looking for a vegetarian restaurant and while the options are primarily meat, they had many options without meat as well. There is a cat in residence I guess hence the name. Sweet staff, good vibes and helpful to touristy questions we had. And great coffee
