This branch of the restaurant is close to the historic enclave next to the river. It's not a fancy restaurant but it serves really good local food made with local ingredients and, as an additional plus, sells some really yummy snacks in the small shop on one side of the building (try the young durian chips fried with tiny shrimps)....

This is one of 2 sister restaurants. This restaurant is very popular with Thai tourists; Chanthaburi is a popular domestic tourism destination, but almost unknown to western tourists. You absolutely need to try the 2 top specialities of the restaurant. The beef stew, made with chameuang leaves, a dish unique to Chantaburi and the spicy noodles with shrimps. Both dishes... More

Fortuitously, we stayed at a nearby hotel, so we could eat here more than once. There are two chain outlets in town, and both offer an extensive selection of take-away cookies and local treats. Local cuisine is very sweet, such as the celebrated pork soup and crab noodles, but that is not a criticism, as we live in NE Cambodia... More

It was wonderful to discover the local dishes. Many varied dishes. Went back two more times. One time we dropped in to ask where we could buy some ice (as our hotel Restraunt had closed and did not here any) We were presented with a bag for free. Very helpful staff. Delicious local food. Go Go Go

Arrived as a party of 4, ordered a few dishes plus their signature noodles with crab. Flavor of food was very average and not memorable. Overall restaurant was clean, and vibrant.

Lovely clean, well maintained restaurant with extremely helpful service. Had the speciality crab noodles which couldve done with some more sauce! Just improve a few food options and you'll be the best restaurant I'm Chanthaburi!

Fabulous Thai food with some Chanthaburi specialties. The spicy Chanthaburi soup is not to be missed with the most delectable, melt-in-the-mouth pork you will every eat. The Nam Prik is also very good as was the Snapper soup. The coconut and pandan palate cleanser has an interesting texture but works beautifully to "refresh" your taste buds. We ate up to... More
