The cover photo is old location, they keep jockeying two locations next to each other, Egyptian owner, nice fella, a bit shyish, place is very basic from chairs and tables to menu, good drink prices, especially for this area, opens 5; close to but very...much not the normal night bazaar vibe, o has live music/stageMore

There is some confusion, the cover photo here is of the iron bridge rest and bar, bus bar is next to it going inland from the river, bus bar has added even more busses, unassuming place offering basic food, cheap for this area which can...get pricy, pedestrians be very careful walking down the iron bridge to get here, dangerous, narrow, parking very very scarce*(mostly nonexistent) Gave it 4 stars for delivering what it purports to be, basic but quite okMore

Nothing so amazing here. So so fare on the river. Open air tables. Just another more or less street food cheap eats type of place.

An old bus, a band, food and drinks by the river. Very different and charming. There was a beautiful breeze the night we were there. Great music and atmosphere.
