The location is great with a cozy and tasteful garden terrace. The food was tasty and they were even kind enough to pack me some food to go twice, so I could feed a sick partner at home! The staff is kind. Definitely recommend.

It's pricey and targeted to tourist. That said, food was good, ambience pleasant. Service was quick and painless. Had the pickled tea leaf salad and fresh ginger salad. Both were very good.

Sanon is a fantastic restaurant which does a lot for the community. Even if Sanon wasn’t helping the community, I’d go just for the food. We ordered a lot of dishes (mostly local) because we couldn’t decide and we enjoyed everything! Service was also excellent.More

Good beer on tap. Had the beef curry, could have been more tender but overall good. Partner had the tea leaf salad, very good. Finished off with coconut and semolina desert which came with a very good chocolate chip ice cream.
